Health in different ways and forms

Being fit is absolutely a good way to stay healthy. However becoming older, your cells turnover slows down, which means it takes the body longer to recover both after activity and for example a wound. The skins elasticity decrees. You have to work harder with what you have. I still believe strongly in maintaining your HIIT training 3 times a week for a-proximity 30 min per session – during this time you should really sweat. 😓, If you jog, do burpees or really intense Yoga, is all up to you as long as you do something that gets your heart pumping.

This will kickstart your growth hormone, something that decreases we become older. And growth hormones will keep us younger longer, both in body and mind. I want to live a good healthy live and that requires good things inside and out.

But health comes in different forms, It’s not just fitness, it´s also stress and a lot of other things I understood late in life that I was intolerant to gluten, I did not hava a specific issue with my gut , but with my skin, in form of eczema. I was also very sick, my childhood was filled with constant ear and throat infections. I was eating antibiotics 24/7 which I have now learned killed millions of my good gut bacterias, those little helpers that was suppose to help me out. It was really bad. This lead to an inner stress that have caused permanent damage to my body.

Now days, stress is a major no no for me, I really watch what I eat and move everyday in a way I am comfortable with. I don´t stress it as I use to, I let my self rest, If my body craves it. I try to avoid sugar, as that is really bad, for absolutely everything.

How do you keep healthy? got any tips?

What a blessing

I remember about 8 years ago when I felt completely out of control. It was a couple of incident that left me completely questioning everything. I was stuck in a black hole, living for everyone else but my self. I was exhausted with 4 children, full time job and I had completely forgotten who I was, my childhood dreams and all the goals I had carried was gone. I was not happy nor sad I was numb and very tired.

During the years that followed I have done my best to changes it, take back the control, as I can only blame my self for loosing it. Fighting against the rest of the world from all of sudden acting different, as well as fighting against my own habits I gotten so used to over the last 10+ more years.

Slowly I began to take control, take control over my thought, finding my dreams, some new and some old. Trying to live up to my own need without feeling guilty which was the hardest part, as I was battle with thoughts of feeling selfish and less caring towards the rest of the people close to me.

Today, many years later I am well om my way, I have found my passion as well as new passions. I have found so many new friends, life is a journey and I am now in it instead of standing by and watching it pass by. So yes, what a blessing to finally having woken up.
