Most of us work hard to stay fit and healthy. We do our best to eat well and exercise regularly.. But sometimes life just gets in the way of our good intentions. Before we know it, several weeks have passed. We’re feeling tired, emotional, and lacking in motivation. It’s amazing just how quickly you can succumb to poor health. Your body could be giving you lots of signs right now to let you know your health is suffering.
Headaches are a symptom of so many problems. One may be that your glasses prescription needs updating. But often, a headache is a sign you’re not drinking enough water. It can also occur when you haven’t been sleeping well, or you are feeling stressed. A headache is also a common symptom when you have a cold coming on. The sinus area becomes inflamed and pushes the pain upward into your head.
A high temperature also accompanies a headache if you are ill. This is a sign that your body is fighting a virus or infection. Infections come in all shapes and sizes. Some you can see, like boils. They can be very painful, so it’s best to act quickly. Other infections might not be so visible, and they can be very harmful. A fever suggests you should see a doctor to help.
Poor skin condition is another sign that you have neglected your diet and exercise regime. Toxins can build up under the skin. Without exercise, the skin can become puffy, oily or dry, and spotty. A good diet is needed to keep skin cells regenerating and healing. Sometimes the bad skin is caused by hormonal imbalances. Again, a good diet can help get this back under control.
Do you know how many glasses of water you are drinking each day? If you don’t, chances are it’s not enough. Get back on track by making sure you have eight glasses of H2O to keep your body and mind hydrated. Confusion, a lack of focus, and excessive hunger can all be signs that you are dehydrated. Strong smelling urine could be a sign that you need to drink extra water. Without it, you could be prone to bladder infections.
If your bathroom habits have changed at all, you might need to get your diet and exercise back on track. Poor digestion can be a sign of eating too much sugar or fat. Plenty of fiber helps to push these excesses out to make you feel comfortable again. Toxins from junk food smell bad, and they clog up your system leaving you bloated. Eat well to get rid of bad habits altogether. Avoid alcohol too.
Our good health is so important to us, but life does get in the way. It’s not easy to prioritize ourselves over the family. Stress at work and tight time schedules push us to our limits every day. However, it’s important that you get plenty of opportunities to exercise and eat right. Stay well.
