Protect your Health Assets

Posted by Anna Rider on April 6, 2023
Have you heard the old adage ” the best offence is the best defence”?

Defending or protecting what you already have before building on it, is a very wise approach. Often people think of getting insurance for their homes, their cars, their lives but they don’t think of protecting their health in the same way.

Do you think of your health as an asset? Extremely valuable and something that would be hard to earn back if it was compromised? When it comes to your health, can you even put a value on it?
Do you put daily deposits into your health account? Do you think of keeping the balance at a certain amount? Do you anticipate when there will be a greater withdrawal of your health spending (energy)?
nurture your health like it's a baby
This could be as simple as travelling, flights, jet lag, restaurant meals, parties, holidays, weddings, or when you have a newborn, or are a caregiver for someone, or work swing shifts. All of these examples take a toll on your health reserves.

If this resonates with you, I would encourage you to sit down and really take stock of your
health. Is it where you want it to be? If not, why isn’t it? What is in the way?
If your health is at a sweet spot, how can you keep it there? What activities can you do to
protect it and maintain it?

Feel free to post some of these answers. We can all learn from each other.

When I think of this question for myself, I think of all the slices of the health and wellness pie.

There is the physical - my body- I try to do 30 min. HIIT training at least twice per week, and I try to walk several times per week. I want to increase the frequency of this, and I will plan another session at the training studio into my week.
There is the mental- the health of my mind- I like to have a quiet time each morning as I start my day- I read something inspirational (often it is the bible) and then I ponder what it means, and how it could be implemented into my day. I also try not to over-schedule myself as I know I need downtime each day.

There is the social- my family and friends- I try to schedule a connection weekly with close.
people in my life and have family dinners as many evenings as we can.

There is the spiritual- my love for God, my creator, who I connect with daily. This also means engaging in creativity, music, art, design, nature etc.

This list is just scratching the surface of all the aspects of health and wellbeing.

If you are feeling like you don’t know where to begin, or feel lost, or don’t know which area you should start with- I can help you with that.

Investing in your health pays big dividends. Once you start to nourish your body, mind, and life, healing will start to naturally occur.
