Savvy Health Round Up 1

As a health coach, I empower women who are motivated to take control of their health by busting sugar cravings, banishing fatigue and taming tummy troubles.  I do that by working with them on a regular basis to make changes to their diet and lifestyle. Along with support, encouragement, and information, one of my roles is a resource guide.  There is a ton of information out there; it can be confusing. The good stuff can get lost in all the yuck.

    I never understood people who thought it was okay to run on 3/4 hours of sleep and binge eat on junk food. I can barley last a day if I don’t eat health or get enough sleep. I’m like a zombie lol.

    • Karen G says:

      Good for you for taking care of yourself. Health just seems to get pushed down on people’s to do list instead of making it a part of who they are. Sounds like that is what you have done.

    • Karen G says:

      We all need reminders. 2015 is a busy, hectic world that we are all trying to do our best in, so when we keep reminding ourselves or finding reminders for our health, it helps me and others do our best to live a healthy life.

  2. Yes! Love this list. I have also written quite a bit about sleep and health. We tend to discount how MUCH lack of sleep and stress affect our immunity and overall health!

      Yes we do discount it, but shouldn’t. It can really change the way we live and how we eat and move, which effects our health even more. Will check out your blog.

  3. Sabrina Q. says:

    Great post! I love that you mentioned sleep. I know when I don’t have a good amount of hours of rested sleep, it really messes with my day. I can’t focus and I feel like I am in a daze. You just reminded me that I haven’t made my roasted root veggies recipe yet. That will be on the menu soon. Thanks for sharing.

    • Karen G says:

      So glad you try to make sleep a priority. Not getting enough effects almost everything else in our lives. Roasted vegetables are one of my favorite things to eat in the fall. Enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.

    These are great topics and I sped read thru them. I do roast begetables nightly & get around 7 hours sleep. A few things I learned that work for me- I can function well on less sleep but that is not the point. I try going to sleep same time nightly & I DON’T check my computer before rolling into bed. I’ve noticed when I do that, too wired- either cant fall asleep or wake up after a few hours & can’t get back.

  5. Hello Karen, fellow IINer! Nice post. It’s so good to see the ripple effect happening all over with good people like you helping to spread the word, educate, and offer your passionate support.

  6. All of these are very important topics for us women to be conscious of and make sure we are taking the right actions to ensure our overall health and wellbeing. Having had major health issues in my life and now transforming them, I get the importance of healthy food choices, exercise and sleep! Overall lifestyle in fact. Sleep is a big issue for me, probably the biggest one of them all. I have adopted a sleep hygiene protocol and if I am online even a bit longer than normal, I find it is harder for me to fall asleep. I just read an interesting piece on biphasic sleep patterns, which confirms that waking up after 4 hours and not falling right back to sleep, is actually normal for humans. My ideal night would be to sleep 7 or 8 straight hours and wake up fully rested. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful resources with us all, Karen!

    • Karen G says:

      Beverley, I too have been reading about the fact that humans are biphasic. It was in the context of the fact that naps could be a good thing because human of the past prior to artificial light would go to sleep with the sun, then wake a few hours later, do some light activity, like preparing for the next day, go back to bed and wake with the sun. Fascinating, but it would not work for me in the modern world. Glad you are transforming your health.

  7. I certainly try to get more than 6 hours of sleep a night. Sometimes I can break 7. But 8? Maybe once a year. My hips start to ache and my bladder is about to burst all on its own, let alone being trounced on by energetic cats who think it’s time to wake up. The good news: I never have to use an alarm clock! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Karen G says:

      Yep, that is good news that you don’t need an alarm clock, but you may want to consider not having pets in your bedroom. Studies show that pets disturb your sleep so you may not be getting the benefits of Deep sleep or REM sleep which effects your health.

  8. All important points. I do try to stress to my clients that in order to the benefits of clean eating and exercise, they need to sleep! During the workout is when you break the muscles down, it’s in between the workouts when the magic happens!

  9. Jane Gramlich says:

    Thanks for your great resource list. I especially am going to use the roasted vegetables and the ways to add movement to my life. I feel as though I have back-burned my health for nearly a year. It’s great to get back to it.
