1. You get enough quality sleep

One of the most important aspects of maintaining good physical and mental health is getting enough sleep every night. Quality sleep allows our bodies to rest and recharge, meaning that the next day we’ll have more energy and be better prepared for whatever comes our way. Generally speaking, adults should aim to get between seven and eight hours of sleep each night. If you’re getting the recommended amount of restful sleep, then this is a good indication that your body is in healthy condition. The quality of the sleep can be improved by factors such as: maintaining a cool temperature, reducing electromagnetic interference such as turning off wifi and devices, removing any LED lights (such as those on chargers), using blackout blinds and/or an eye mask to reduce visual noise, ear plugs and avoiding screens for at least an hour before bed. Additionally meditations before bed can be hugely relaxing. I have a coaching client who listens to my free guided meditations before bed and tells me she goes to bed with me!

2. You have a healthy appetite

Having an appetite for food and being able to eat without feeling discomfort or nausea are important signs of good health. A healthy appetite may indicate that your body is functioning correctly and that it has enough fuel to complete daily tasks. Additionally, having regular cravings for certain foods could be a sign that your diet lacks certain essential nutrients. This can be easily remedied by adding more nutrient-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains into your meals.

3. You have regular bowel movements

Having regular bowel movements is another sign of good health. If your body is unable to eliminate waste efficiently, then this may indicate that there are problems with your digestion or absorption of nutrients from the foods you eat. There's also a link between your gut and your brain, with as many neurons in your gut as a cat has in their brain! So brain fog can be linked to gut health. It's always best to follow a whole foods diet that's as close to nature as possible, avoiding processed foods, alcohol, sugar and other inflammatory foods (such as excessive dairy and meat)

4. You have healthy skin

The condition of your skin can be an excellent indicator of overall health. Healthy skin should appear firm, smooth and free of blemishes or inflammation. If your skin appears dry or patchy, this could be a sign that you’re not getting enough fluids or essential vitamins and minerals. If you are concerned, consider seeing a dermatologist or going for a skin cancer check-up. Again gut health effects skin. You can read more on candida and the microbiome to see whether you are feeding a yeast infection in your body which can result in symptoms such as itchy skin, sluggishness, brain fog and even depression.

5. You have a stable weight

Maintaining a healthy weight is important for overall health and longevity. If you’re not gaining or losing more than two kilograms (about five pounds) over the course of a month, then this may be an indication that your body is in good condition. However, if you’re constantly gaining or losing large amounts of weight, then it could signify other underlying health issues such as hormonal imbalances or metabolic disorders that need to be addressed by your doctor.

There You Go!

By being aware of these 5 key signs, you can better monitor your body’s overall health and take the necessary steps to ensure that it continues functioning properly. Remember that your health is in your hands, so it’s important to stay mindful of any changes or irregularities in order to maintain good physical and mental well-being.
