Five Critical Elements for Health
If you put some time into thinking about what well being means to you, you will find your answer to be totally different from everyone else’s. Why? Because we all define health from our own unique perspective. Our everyday actions with how we align our health priorities differ. On top of that, there is a tremendous amount of confusion as to what it and what is not healthy.
People aren’t eating what they should, when they should. Employers want employees to do the job of three people. Our food supply is being bombarded with toxins and chemicals. People aren’t getting the sleep they need. The COVID-19 pandemic is causing stress, fear and anxiety around the world. The list is a long and lengthy one. Research told us to stay away from xxx but now it’s okay. It’s no wonder people are confused and exhausted.
We know people want to improve their health, but it’s not something that’s easy to do if you don’t have the right information, time and support. This is the reason for the five elements below. We’ve grouped the critical elements of health into five categories. When you are out of balance in just one area, it causes you to be out of balance in ALL of the others. But When you begin to create balance in these five areas, you will be amazed in how you feel! There is a way to improve these areas in an easy and unobtrusive way. We stand strongly behind these five elements because they impact every aspect of your health.
Our five critical elements that impact health:

Your circadian rhythm id crucial for your overall health as it helps to balance out all the other elements. Here are the benefits for getting the correct amount of sleep for your age and activity level.

Believe it or not, certain kinds of stress can be good for you. This means all stress isn’t bad. Understanding the difference is very important so you can keep it in check. When the stress switch is always on, it tears down the body’s defenses, leaving you vulnerable to diseases of all kinds. But when you manage your stress levels throughout each day, you allow your body to restore itself so you can respond to your environment with intention and purpose.
Your environment plays a very big role in your overall health goals. It can have a ripple effect for chronic pain, mental illness, and toxic overload in the body. Toxins in your food and in and around your home slowly destroys your body’s defenses to fight off infections and diseases. Not only that, but your satisfaction with your job, home life, and management of time and finances all factor into a healthy environment and supports you. Set your daily intentions on the positive and uplifting things you surround yourself with.
