The process of resetting your physical health is about looking at how you treat your body and making changes as needed. This is not about doing a cleanse or detox or having to complete a difficult workout challenge. Resetting is not about becoming a perfect specimen, but instead just taking stock of your habits now, and what you can change.

What You Eat in a Typical Day

Let’s start with your nutrition. Write down what you eat on an average day. You can use yesterday as an example, or just write down some general notes about what you eat during each meal. Try to be specific, including what time you ate, why you ate, what you chose to eat, and how much.

Look at this objectively, not by putting foods in good or bad categories, but just looking for trends. Act as if you are looking at someone else’s meal plan to see how healthy or unhealthy it is.

Making Improvements to Your Nutrition

Once you can see what you tend to eat in a day, look to see if there are areas where you might want to improve your nutrition. Don’t think about fat or calories here, just the nutrients in your food.

Notice when you tend to cave sugar or have extra snacks, and how your eating habits change when you have a good amount of protein or fiber. Did you eat more after a workout? Are there days where you didn’t eat enough? How many fruits and vegetables do you put on your plate?

How Can You Get in More Movement?

Exercising and getting your heart pumping is also really important when it comes to your physical health. How often are you getting in movement, and is it something you enjoy?

If you only get to the gym or do a home workout 1-2 days a week, you know it’s time to add a little more movement. It doesn’t need to be anything intense, but try to find more ways to move your body every day. This can be a hike with friends, walking to the store instead of driving, going on longer walks with your dogs, doing a home dance workout, or trying yoga once a week.

Is it Time for a Checkup?

Don’t forget about doctor visits! These are not only important when you get sick, but also for preventive care. Try to visit your doctor once a year for a checkup and bring up any concerns you might have.

    I have completely changed my physical health in the past year. It has been an incredible re-set. In fact, a year ago today I was in the Intensive Care Unit, my body was giving up – sepsis, Valley Fever, malaise. Now I am walking a few miles every day, doing yoga, eating so much better. And I feel so much better…. so importantly! Great blog post!

    Well … there is room for improvement all around. I do notice that when I eat soon enough and it’s protein I eat better throughout the day. So that would be the first place to start, to be more consistent with that. The second might be adding in other nutrients, like veggies and fruit. And I definitely need to move more. Let’s hope this great post inspires me!
