Taking Care of Yourself

It is important to take time every day for reflection. We often find ourselves getting caught up in the business of everyday life. This can cause us to forget about important tasks, reaching out to family and friends, and simply helping to manage stress.

When we do not take time to reflect, we could be putting ourselves at risk for forgetting about the things that really matter.

Eating balanced meals are also an important part of taking care of yourself. Your body needs the correct nutrition so that it can function properly. There are certain foods that are good for our brain and giving us energy. Completing schoolwork and assignments could be easier for us when we have the “brain power” needed to do so.

One of the biggest components of taking care of yourself, if not the most important is having fun. Do something you like whether it’s going to the beach, reading a good book, spending quality time with a loved one or friend, or cooking your favorite meal to indulge, do it. Life is short and presents to us enough issues of its own. Having fun can help us create a sense of refreshment which could be a motivator for working hard.

A Healthy Immune System

A healthy immune system is vital to helping us to be healthy individuals. Our immune system consists of our cells, organs, and proteins. We may have a hard time putting into perspective on how our immune system works because we do not always understand how it works and why it is so important. When we need to fight off viruses and infections that can cause illness in our body, our immune system is the first line of defense. Also, having a healthy immune system is important to keep our bodies functioning properly. This is needed so that we can perform at the levels needed on jobs, in schools, and in sports. Eating the right foods and understanding how to eliminate stress are two major factors in helping develop a strong immune system. Stress is a hindrance to our immune systems working properly. This is where taking time for yourself will benefit your body, mind, and soul!

Eating Well

Nutrition is the process of obtaining the proper and appropriate amount of healthy foods our bodies need for growth. Learning what to eat is just as important as how much you should be eating. We should be eating foods that come from the many different food groups. Also, it is important for us to consult our physicians when we have questions about dieting and foods that could affect any diseases or disorders, we could have. The bottom line is educating yourself to understanding the food groups and recommended serving amounts. A good place to start would be choosemyplate.gov.
