My Life - My Organizing Stories 10 Ways I Stay Organized for My Health…and You Can Too! One of the most important things for me to keep organized is my health. Think about it. If you’re not feeling healthy most days, it’s much more challenging to get things done, to reach your dreams, to take care of your family, to work...and, in short, to live a happy life. In light of this, here are things I live by each and every day to stay as healthy as possible. 1. Don’t skip meals. Don’t skip meals or starve yourself. If you don’t eat enough food, your body responds to lack of food by going into starvation mode. In order to conserve fuel, your metabolism slows down in order to conserve energy. 2. Get enough sleep. When you’re tired, you’re more likely to sit down and move less, it’s easier to grab unhealthy snacks for energy, and you’re more apt to skip the gym than those who’ve had an adequate amount of sleep. While I can’t say I get 8 hours of sleep most nights, I aim for at least 7. 3. Don’t sit all day: Sitting in a chair all day, even if you exercise, will still slow down your metabolism. Our bodies are meant to move, not sit on the computer all day. If you have a desk job, stand up and stretch, or take a short walk, every hour. 4. Stay hydrated. Drinking lots of water helps with weight loss, maintains the balance of body fluids, keeps our skin looking beautiful, energizes muscles, helps our kidneys and bowel function, and keeps us young. Really, do you need more reasons for drinking your fill each day? 5. Avoid refined carbs. Refined carbohydrates like white bread, pastas, rice, etc. are simple carbohydrates. This means your body doesn’t have to work very hard to digest the food, letting your metabolism slow down. Yes, I’ll enjoy a plate of pasta now and then, but on most days, I try to stick with whole grains and healthy vegetables for my carb sources. 6. Exercise. I exercise at least one hour a day, six days a week. On the seventh day, I give my body a rest. 7. Read to learn. Keep your mind sharp by reading and learning something new...that matters...each day. 8. Do something out of the box. Whether you attempt a new recipe, try a new activity, or change your driving route to work, keep your daily enthusiasm up by doing something each day that you wouldn’t normally do. 9. Keep in touch. Always keep in touch with your family members and friends. We need people in our lives who love us, and who we love...both in person, and via phone calls or social media. 10. Laugh...often. Laughing means we’re feeling good about ourselves. If you’re not laughing enough, at least 5 times a day, you’re under quota. Find things in your life that make you more joyful!
