A healthy lifestyle has many positive benefits for our health, including improved mood and decreased risk for adverse health outcomes. However, making changes in our lifestyles can be difficult to do, especially if you are unsure of where to start. For help in making changes to your lifestyle to improve your health, consider talking to Dr. David Yi and Dr. Paula Lansford-Seabaugh of Trophy Club Family Medicine in Trophy Club, TX.
Healthy Lifestyle Changes
Finding out more about how your body is specifically affected by what you eat and how much you exercise is a great place to start in making healthy lifestyle changes. While everyone is different in what they need to prioritize, there is no denying that increasing the amount and frequency of physical activity each day will have positive outcomes for your health. Not only does this decrease stress levels, support muscle and bone health, and keep your heart healthy, it also has positive effects on digestion, lung capacity, productivity, and mood!
What you eat and drink can also positively or negatively affect your body and long-term health. If you are looking to make changes in your diet to improve your health, be sure to talk to your doctor about the kind of diet that is best for you based on your needs and health history.
Other small changes that can be made to improve health outcomes include getting more sleep at night, maintaining a good work-life balance (or if you are retired finding a balance between your responsibilities and hobbies), and getting involved with social groups either among your friends and family or within the community. Each of these factors may have positive effects on your mental and physical health.
