Every choice you make affects your body.
Your body is designed to heal itself.
When you cut your skin, it heals and creates a scar.
All the other organs have the same capacity.
Unlike a machine, our bodies do not wear out.They will rust out when not given the elements they need to thrive.
These elements are Fresh Air, Sunlight, Proper Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep, Water, and Stress Reduction.
Fresh Air. Fresh, outdoor air is essential to life. Air exchange removes carbon dioxide from our bodies, cleaning our lungs and helping us breathe deeper and deeper.
Sunlight. Sunlight converts cholesterol to Vitamin D which helps prevent osteoporosis. It strengthens our immune system by destroying viruses and bacteria.
Water. Our bodies are 60% water. Without water our blood wouldn’t circulate, our joints wouldn’t move, our blood wouldn’t be purified, and we would not be able to eliminate waste.
Sleep. Quality sleep gives the body time to repair and rejuvenate itself. Studies show an average of 7 – 8 hours of sleep per night are needed for best results.
Exercise. The body needs exercise to keep the heart healthy, the bones strong, increase circulation, help in the elimination of wastes. Be consistent with daily exercise.
Proper Nutrition. Food is the most powerful drug we take. Good nutrition provides energy, structural components like calcium, vitamins, and minerals. Proper nutrition helps us have good vision, good memory, stronger, shinier hair and nails, helps build our immune system, and prevent the risk of chronic illness such as heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and some cancers.
Stress Reduction. Some stress in our lives is healthy – it can keep us on track and motivated. Too much stress wears us out and causes more wear and tear on our bodies.
The Bottom Line: You can’t out-exercise poor lifestyle choices. What you do to your body, what you put into your body, will dictate what your body does for you.
