Today I’d like to talk about developing Physical Resilience and while you may have heard of a number of the things that I’m going to mention, what I’d like you to do is just think carefully about the ones that you may be neglecting.
What are the one or two things that you can do, from the lists that I’m going to go through, just a bit more in order to build up and boost your physical resilience. Because the key elements that you need to be able to look out for are nutrition, sleep and exercise, and think about how you can balance those things.
With food it’s about, you know, eating real food. It’s about making sure that you avoid processed food. Manage your sugar, eat the rainbow so that you’re having a well-balanced diet. Think of your Five a Day and drink plenty of water so that your body stays hydrated.
And the next one is sleep. And sleep is there’s a lot of research now about sleep which I really highly recommend you explore and look into. The latest research search is showing that people who get six or less hours sleep per night have a 30% higher chance of developing dementia in their 60s and 70s. So think also about the amount of light that you’re getting before you go to bed. Especially blue screen light. Avoid looking at any screens about 45 minutes before you want to go to sleep.
