We all want to be as healthy as possible. Factors like our diet, exercise habits, sleep quality, and stress levels can significantly impact our wellness. But are you aware of the factors that affect wellness?
This article will go over three factors that affect your wellness!
How your genes are inherited factors into how healthy you will be. If one of your parents has a family history of diabetes, for example, then it is more likely that you might get it as well! In this case, what factors affect wellness? Genetics would impact the person’s health and wellness- they would have a higher risk of developing health problems as opposed to someone who does not carry the same genes.
Getting enough rest is key to your well-being. When you don’t sleep, your immune system can become weaker, which leaves the body more susceptible to illness and disease. Not only does lack of sleep affect factors such as immunity, but it also affects how efficiently our bodies process food for energy production.
Exercise is essential to your well-being. Exercise helps the body stay strong and healthy, boosts immune system function, strengthens bones and muscles, lowers blood pressure, improves mental health by stimulating endorphins that produce a natural “high,” promotes weight loss or weight management for those who are overweight/obese; it also has been shown to reduce the risk of many chronic diseases.
Please get to know your body, so you are clear on what food it needs, how much exercise, and what it takes for your body to recover.
