You CAN improve your physical health, but the latest diet probably won’t help you. This checklist will.

It’s NOT Impossible to Improve Your Physical Health

My health journey has lasted almost half of my life. I’m glad to report I’m in the best physical shape I’ve been in my entire life. Not bad for an old gal approaching 60! In the past thirty years, I’ve discovered magic pills to improve your physical health don’t exist. But you CAN improve your physical health, one small choice at a time.

Everyone has a unique struggle, and no one-size-fits-all regimen, routine, diet, or program will work for everyone. The magic pill isn’t even a pill. It’s self-knowledge. The better we understand ourselves, the better we’ll understand where we need help (from a friend or a professional). When we feel comfortable in our own skin and analyze what we like and don’t like, it’s easier to choose help wisely.

I don’t like exercising on a regular basis with other people. It took thousands of dollars in gym memberships to figure it out. A treadmill, the iFit app, and a stationary bike cost less than a year at the gym, and I actually use them. Someone else may need the interaction of a community. Today’s self-care hacks to improve physical health include a free checklist.

It’s not the kind of checklist where someone else decides what you need to do. Instead, you get to explore your likes and dislikes and motivations. Start small, but start. Your body will thank you. All the people who love you and want to see you live a long and happy life will thank you.

  1. I always seem to approach exercising as something to grumble about – yet, playing tennis, pickleball, or things like that – I’d do it happily for hours. I’m in a six week boot-camp right now. I’m trying to turn my penchant to grumble into something that feels like enjoy.

  2. Great advice, Anita, to realize one size does not fit everyone, so we need to evaluate our goals, motivation, and appropriate fitness resources. Fitbit was my motivator, so I was sad when they took away the solo challenges and fitness badges. Have you found an app replacement?
