There's so much contrary information out there about being well I thought I'd ask you guys what you have found really promotes health in your lives? Having turned 40 last year I find myself more and more interested in this stuff... Personally, I have ushered in some significant changes in my post-40 life, such as: Try to get 8 solid hours every night...and a siesta if possible. Breathing exercises for relaxation (soon to be meditation) Less intense crazy training. I used to kill myself daily with "race to x number of burpees" etc whereas now I enjoy hiking and biking with my dogs in the forest outside my village and just throw in a few more intense sessions a week. Generally more relaxed attitude towards keeping fit and funnily enough in better shape than ever. Eat satiating high-nutrient food and because of this I can miss meals if I'm busy without climbing the walls in desperation for food. We've knocked all cereals, seed oils and packaged junk on the head completely and have seen arthritis, colitis and sinusitis completely disappear! GTFO the interwebz! I now use it as a tool for info and nothing else. I was feeling agitated and unhappy with all the flicking about fÃ³rums etc whereas now I look for specific things, find them and read or listen to them and then get back to doing something that doesn't make me jittery like some hand-stand walks or breathing practises or, God forbid, a chat with my OH! The only box I feel we haven't ticked for mental health is the social bonds one. We're living in a rural place where, for the first time in my life, I simply can't find anything in common with folk around me. Very closed-minded, fatalistic people without much curiosity about anything, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time (although we've been here 6 years lol) before we get to know some folk we can communicate with. How about you lot?
