When we think about overall health and well-being, we do not necessarily think about having bigger muscles or winning a specific sporting event or competition. For all of us, improving our general fitness is an important part of our day to day life. Improving general fitness can improve muscle tone, hair and skin health, improve bone-density, cardiovascular health and other age and lifestyle related changes that lead to risks for our organs and our health.
But it is important to realize that there is more to fitness than your exercise routine! Many elements of our lifestyle play a role in our fitness. Our nutrition and diet, sleep hygiene, hydration and stress management can impact the function of our physical body as well as our mind. We all know that if we are underfed, sleep deprived and over stressed, we can feel run down, physically and mentally slower. For many, starting to increase their exercise regiment is a good place to start to on their overall fitness.
This makes sense for many reasons. If you start exercising, your may be more physically tired which can improve sleep. Improved sleep can help with energy, focus, concentration. When we feel more productive, our perception of stress improves as does our ability to manage and cope with new stressors. Each of these improvements feedback on each other to help with making healthy decisions in all areas of our life.
