We all have habits,
Some that aid us to our objectives we classify as good some that have negative consequences we call bad habits. We will go into the neurology of habits in a future exercise but today let's talk about some good habits that can help our bodies function at maximum efficiency.
Get in the habit: Good habits
Our bodies have rhythms and schedules. We make certain hormones in the mornings, others in the evenings. Our bodies respond to sunlight and even to the seasons. These regulate things like our sleep cycle, appetite, temperature, hormones, alertness, body performance, blood pressure and other things like that.
When these are disrupted we can see a number of health concerns including anxiety, depression, lack of energy, increased risk of obesity and even metabolic disorders like diabetes or thyroid issues, even the dreaded autoimmune disorders can show up!
So how can we develop better habits and be happy about it? How can we do what's healthy for us without feeling deprived?
