How to Stop Neglecting Your Health



Do you know what the most important asset you have is? Here’s a hint: it’s not wherever you live, and it’s definitely not your car. It’s not even any investments you’ve made. Your most important asset is your health. In order for your health to truly be an asset, however, you have to stop neglecting it.



Make Time During Your Day


If you're going to stop neglecting your health, the first thing you must realize is that it’s little actions and decisions that add up to improve your health. While these actions and decisions are generally small things, they do require you to take the time to make and do them. It will be a lot easier to achieve your health goals if you make time for it throughout the day. Give yourself time to prepare a healthy, balanced meal. Make some time to devote to being physically active in some way. Set aside some time to take care of your mental health too.



Take Self-Care Days


Speaking of your mental health, it can help to take a self-care day every now and again. Self-care days are great for getting in touch with your body and your mind. They give you a chance to give yourself the attention you deserve. This can go a long way towards helping relieve feelings of anxiety. Anxiety can cause avoidance behaviors and affect your performance at work. As such, there’s no need to feel guilty about taking some time off to take care of yourself. Really, it’s an investment in yourself that pays off when you’re at work.



Make Yourself Accountable


Staying disciplined about taking good care of your health can be tough if you’re trying to do it all on your own. Having a partner or buddy that you work with towards health goals you’ve set can help you feel more motivated to act on them. That other person acts as someone you are accountable to for your actions or inactions. Knowing you have to report to someone else can often be the extra push you need to stop neglecting your health and take an active role in protecting your health instead.


It’s all too easy to let yourself neglect your health. Doing so is a huge mistake, however. If you don’t have your health, you’ll find everything in life gets a whole lot harder. Being in good health, on the other hand, makes just about everything you ever do a lot easier. For that reason, your health is your biggest asset. You owe it to yourself to maintain it.
