Are you looking to boost your physical health? How about your eye health? Mental health? Cognitive health? Emotional health? Hearing health? Well, that’s a lot of aspects of health, so maybe “overall health” is a better way of stating it. So, if you’re like most people, you’re probably always on the lookout for ways to feel better, live longer, and just generally be healthier. 

At the end of the day, it’s about better quality of life. But since there’s all these different aspects of health, wouldn’t it be hard to keep on top of your overall health? Well, not exactly, The good news is, improving your overall health isn’t as hard as you might think. Most aspects of your health go together, for example, eating whole foods is best of all aspects of your health. 

It’s most about your lifestyle; once you have a good lifestyle and you’re making consistent choices, everything else gets better. So, with that all said, let’s dive into some of the best ways to improve your health!

Move Your Body

Alright, it’s best to address the elephant in the room; finding time to exercise can be tough. It’s not even just about timing, it’s also about motivation, it’s more of a mental challenge rather than a physical challenge. So, it’s all about finding something that you love doing. Maybe this could be hiking, dancing, walking, or even something that doesn’t feel like a workout, like tennis.

But the whole goal is to get the heart pumping for at least 30 minutes on most days of the week. This just doesn’t help physical health, though; this helps a lot of aspects of health, too. For example, yes, exercise helps lower the risk of diabetes, but diabetes can affect your hearing health. This is exactly why hearing tests and health markers are such a big deal; your health, in all aspects bleeds in with each other, so this needs to be taken seriously.

Eat Like You Mean It

Now, you don’t have to go on a strict diet or give up all your favorite treats. But a little mindfulness about what you eat can go a long way. So, this goes with what was said earlier in the intro: whole foods impact all aspects of your health, from your eye health to your dental, mental, and so on. 

So, that’s why you need to try to fill your plate with a variety of colorful fruits and veggies, lean proteins, and whole grains. Sure, junk food is great, and having a little bit is fine too, just not too much.

Sleep Tight

Honestly, who doesn’t love to sleep? But the thing is, sleep is often overlooked, but iyes, t’s crucial for good health. Most adults need between 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night. So, if you’re burning the midnight oil or scrolling through social media until the wee hours, it might be time to rethink your routine. 

Actually, that’s bad for your cognitive health and your eye health (but yes mental health and physical health to). Actually, just full-on stop burning the midnight oil, it’s just not worth it!

Go to Your Annual Appointments

Okay, here’s a big one that many people neglect: going to your annual appointments. It might not sound exciting, but regular check-ups with your dentist, general practitioner, and even an audiologist for hearing tests can catch potential problems before they become big issues. Alright, it’s a lot, and you still need to see your eye doctor, and so on. But it’s in the name of preventive health. All aspects of health bleed into one another, so if one suffers, another will suffer too.
