Excesses and Deficits

Sometimes when we think of our health and well being we need to break it down into something simple.  Today let’s talk about healthy deficits and excesses.

Deficits – NOT ENOUGH—pretty simple, huh? What are key functional, behavioral or even mental habits that are missing from your lifestyle?? Are you getting enough protein, water, exercise, rest, sleep?  Maybe there is not enough positive.  So ask yourself this question: what are things that are clearly missing that I could focus on to improve my overall health?

Excesses- TOO MUCH—this could be too much of a good thing or too much of a bad thing.  What are some components of your lifestyle that are hindering you from making progress?? How much alcohol are you drinking, caffeine, sugar, how much time do you spend worrying each day?? How full is your schedule? Do you have down time each day to re-charge?  Ask yourself to identify the excess!

Now go and change all these things and life will be perfect! Okay, okay…that is terrible advice. Pick one thing you feel greatly impacts your life at this moment and set a goal around making a positive change. Add more of the not enough or cut down the too much! Now go make a healthy choice today!
