How do you stay healthy?

Being a founder/builder is a lot of work and can take its toll on your health. What's your strategy for staying healthy? I'm a walker and can easily crank out 15+ miles a week, eat only plants and hit the gym 3-5x a week. What's yours?

Yoga helps for it combines stretches, meditation and breathing exercises. Btw, yesterday was the International day of Yoga.

@deleted-3472183 Hi, I am always worried about my health. That is why I always take precautions when it comes to my health. Because precaution is much better than cure. I always take a healthy diet like fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and whole grains and mostly avoid junk food. I consume less sugar and salt. I only drink clean water instead of drinking alcohol and neither I do smoke. I will always be active. I always check my blood pressure regularly. I always do full-body tests and one more secret is to follow the advice of my ayurvedic doctor that I found on https://www.alveda.life. I have changed my lifestyle and daily routine, lean more towards meditation and prefer to take Ayurvedic herbs because I trust them more than chemical medicines.

I think that I'm in the best position on that topic. As a PM of health solution, I'm trying and implementing the health suggestion for myself. Meanwhile, I do kundalini yoga and meditation on daily basis, but you know when you're above the 30s, sometimes it isn't enough. So I check my health markers from time to time and, for example, the last time I defined that my hormone profile needs to be improved and my inflammation is a little bit higher than the norm. I added some natural ways to improve it (like superfood) and became happy not just because I saw the better numbers, but mostly that I get a lot of energy.

@anna_panchenko ohh what superfoods did you try.

@adriancole It depends on the lab test results. Just for example, when I discovered that my HDL was too low, I added Flax seeds and Chia. But when my lipid levels became perfect I stopped using it often. Although I still add them and the Goji berries to the porridge from time to time because I like their taste. Goji berries help with my dry eye disease. I also took DHEA supplements when my DHEA level appeared low as well as my cortisol level became abnormal hight. When it became the norm, I stopped taking it. I used to walk for 30 minutes per day, but some of the tests showed that that isn't enough. So I increase my walking to 60 minutes per day and started to listen to audiobooks because it seemed to me too much time to waste. So in general, I think that my health approach is clear.

@jeffweisbein It does. It takes about 6 months to cross into what experts call the maintenance phase.

@nataliekarakina I am looking to be better about stretching! Is there a resource to help me? I have a very very weak back and I've been told to make sure my hip flexors are being stretched.

@justinchitla If you have a weak back you probably shouldn't stretch your hip flexors! Are you in pain or have a bad posture?

@dkaravias I've definitely heard of stretching the hip flexors so I've been giving that a try this week and will continue to do so. I actually stumbled on a good hip flexor stretch on tik tok lol!

I am also a walker. I try to hit 30-40 miles a week. Doing repetitive rhythmic movements (e.g. walking) helps the nervous system relax as the blood circulates around the body at a constant pace.
