Margin is needed in everyone’s life. Without it there will be negative effects to us and the people around us. Here are some suggestions in creating margin in physical energy.
Some may say sleep is overrated, but it is much underrated. One should value sleep. Most experts say seven to ten hours of sleep is needed. Albert Einstein, one of the smartest people who ever lived, slept eleven hours a night. Make sure to develop a healthy sleep pattern. Try to go to sleep and wake around the same time consistently. Also, it is okay to take a nap during the day. In fact, it is recommended. Naps reduce the risk of heart arracks by as much as thirty-five percent.
Nutrition is talked about constantly. The word is white sugar is out so eliminate soft drinks. As a general rule, do not drink your calories. Drink lots of water instead. Most people are dehydrated because they do not drink enough water for their body to function correctly. Do not make the mistake of skipping meals. In fact, research shows it is healthier if we eat more often but eat smaller meals. Food should be viewed as fuel that bodies need regularly.
Exercise helps us in so many ways. It is certainly good for weight management, but is beneficial in other ways. When exercising, your heart and muscles are strengthened and it improves your flexibility. Exercise is even good for one’s mind and spirit.
