As a Mid Life Coach for Women, health is often one of the first topics we look into. Here are a few of the simplest and smallest changes that clients decide to make, often having the most amazing results.
Food – Introduce food that will help fight the aging process. The more color upon your plate the healthier you will be. Red grapes, green tea, blue berries, black berries, oranges, lemons, to name but a few. Cut down on the carbs too. Period. What one food can you change today that will have an impact upon your health?
Liquid – Two liters of water a day will help keep your body hydrated. Be aware of the effects of alcohol upon the Woman’s Mid Life body – a glass of red wine a day can have beneficial effects – more can be damaging. How can you make sure you are drinking the right quantity of water today?
Sleep – It can be difficult at Mid Life to get a good nights sleep, especially if you suffer from hormonal sweats. Stick to a routine, be prepared as best you can for cooling yourself down. Take an afternoon siesta to boost your tired body – only for 10 minutes. What one thing can you change in your sleep routine?
Exercise – Any exercise that allows to increase your heart rate each day is beneficial. Find something that fits into your daily routine so that it can become a habit. 15 minutes a day will make a huge difference. Check out ‘Interval training’ the new and in vogue way of exercising and the ancient ‘5 Tibetan Rites’ – also known as ‘The Fountain of Youth’. What will you do for 15 minutes today? When will you do this?
De-Stress – Stress is one of the biggest causes of illness at Mid Life. Be aware of what causes you stress, if possible begin to slowly to eradicate this from your life. Find a way of unwinding each day. Take a ‘Mini Me Moment’ just stop what you are doing and stay still for a few minutes until you feel calm again. Meditation practice will help, as will laughter. Have you laughed today?
Something New – Learning something new is a great way to maintain a healthy mind and body. Begin ticking off some of the things you have thought of doing yet never got around to. If you can get away from your usual surroundings even better. What’s on your list?
Help Others – When we reach Mid Life we have already gained so much experience. What better way to feel loved and wanted than to share that with others. Make a list of things you have learned along the way. What can you share and who will you share it with?
Making just one of the changes above will produce lasting results. Many Women at Mid Life are making the changes to suit their circumstances. The smallest steps always lead to the biggest results if taken one by one on a constant basis. What steps will you take?
