“Good” health is relative and changes over time.
The benefits of even just walking 150 minutes per week at a 2.5 mph pace are well documented and should be followed by all in my opinion.
A key to wellness is nutrition. Studies about certain food reducing the likelihood of cancer are enlightening. We know there are a number of things that can trigger cancer but to me the real breakthrough in thinking is understanding foods and lifestyle that are inhibitors to cancer. Certain foods grown organically can make a difference and fortunately organic food choices are becoming readily available at sources like Sprouts, Costco and local farmers markets.
Questions for consideration:
- How’s your BMI?
- What do you do for exercise? How often and for how long?
- How often do you eat out and for what kind of food?
- Do you pay attention to what you are eating relative to the food groups and recommended quantities of each food group?
- Is your alcohol consumption moderate?
- Of course you’re a non-smoker?
- Do you use “healthy” fats whenever possible e.g. olive oil?
- Do you avoid unnecessary salt?
- Do you go light on junk food?
- What dietary changes do you think you need and are committed to trying?
