Thanks to the recent pandemic, you can't be blamed if you have missed some of the health goals you made at the start of the year. Many of us have lapsed when it comes to exercise, and some of us have resorted to comfort eating too. Other bad habits have also become commonplace for some of us, and you may be prone to one or more too.

But as life starts to return to some kind of normality, we should all do what we can to get our health back on track. This should be something you should consider if you haven't followed self-care practices recently, be that because of the pandemic or because of something else besides. But here's the thing. Don't procrastinate by telling yourself you will get your health back on track tomorrow. Do what you can do today, as this will help you do more tomorrow and in all of the days to come.

#1: Move off your sofa

With pandemic restrictions lifting, many of us are now returning to work and into activities that don't require endless sofa sitting. Hopefully, you are able to leave your sofa (and your house) too. For this reason, return to your fitness goals. Go outside for a walk or a run today, or take part in any other activity that will give your body a workout. Create a weekly workout schedule too, and plan to do something active each day from this moment on.

#2: Say 'no' to unhealthy foods

Unhealthy foods are often more tempting than their healthier alternatives, which is annoying really, as we know we shouldn't be binging on them. If you're somebody who regularly faces the temptation of a pizza or a bag of potato chips, start to make some changes. You can begin by filling your pantry with healthier meals and snacks, and by limiting the amount of unhealthy foods you bring into your home. After all, when they aren't there to tempt you, you won't have to risk your diet plan. So, go shopping today with your health in mind, and before you head out look at healthy recipe ideas online for some tasty meal plan ideas.

#3: Book your healthcare appointments

Has your dentist been closed during the pandemic? Have you struggled to make an appointment with your doctor? In most places, health centers of all kinds are starting to open up again, so be it for your teeth, your eyes, or your overall health, book an appointment with your usual health practitioners.

#4: Seek help with any addiction problems

Addiction can take many forms, from drugs, alcohol, and other types of substance abuse, to phone, gaming, and gambling addictions. If you know you have an addiction problem, of any kind, you shouldn't delay getting help. Look for your nearest American Addiction Centers location or research other treatment centers for your particular addiction problem. Both your physical and your mental health are at risk if you don't get help, so admit to yourself that you might have an issue, and get help today!

Finally

We know your health will probably be a priority to you anyway, but it's always good to have a gentle reminder. So, if you have lapsed, in any way, make today the day that you finally get your health back on track.
