Let’s talk about the impact that genetics, lifestyle, and stress play on the impact of your health.
Yes, you can beat adrenal fatigue and burnout by paying attention to genetics.
How well do you know your health history?
What is the role that genetics is already playing in your health? Once you know that then you have an idea about the risk.
One of the things that is really important for a coach to know about their clients is their health history from the family.
It's been said that genetics load the gun and lifestyle pulls the trigger.
We are seeing a really sick nation right now. That is compounded because of the level of stress that we're taking on in our everyday life. We are stressed and we are sick. So, what do you do if you have a family history of any sort of health issue? like heart disease, diabetes, obesity, liver or kidney issues? What do you do with that information? Today, I give you three key points for you to know what to do with your current situation and how to move forward, so that you are changing the genetic expression or epigenetics for the future generations.
The very first thing is you have to be aware of the risk
The same Ignorance is bliss does not play into your health management people. You have to be aware of the risk. You have to know your family history and you also have to know what your current state of health is. It's important to know what the previous generations have brought forward so that you can change the story for any future generations. Make sure that you are visiting your health practitioner at least once a year and getting an extensive blood panel to know where your critical numbers sit. Awareness is key in lifestyle modification.
The second piece is you have to take inventory of your lifestyle.
Truly assessing what you have on your plate on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis will be truly eye opening. I will tell you when I work through this with my clients this has the biggest impact, when they are really looking at how they spend their day with tasks and actions that they aren't even necessarily seen outcomes from. We have these amazing lives and we're feeling it with things that aren't so fun. As you assess your lifestyle take no. Is it more work than rest. And do you have a space that's been created for you to just be still and to enjoy hobbies that you once enjoyed before.
Stress is costing the nation 300 billion dollars a year right now in sickness and loss of productivity. I would venture to say that genetics has a huge role in the enormity of that number. If we have the family history then we have to know how to modify our life so that we're not compounding our issues that we're genetically predisposed to.
The third thing is creating a plan to take action for change
This is huge because you don't know where you're going. If you don't have a map, If you don't have a plan in place, it's really hard to know what milestones you've hit.
With a plan of action you have the ability to actually change your gene expression by modifying your lifestyle. That's epigenetics. If you have a family of heart disease. Eat more bacon should not be on that plan of action.
Taking ownership of your own lifestyle and managing your stress will have a positive impact on the outcome of your lifestyle and your overall state of health. We have an entire society that is burning the candle at both ends and pouring the gasoline in the middle to speed it up. By knowing your risk and making the necessary changes in your life TODAY you can change the outcome of future generations. Not only that but you're changing the story for yourself. You're not destined to the predisposition of issues that your parents or grandparents passed along.
