Start the New Year with Positive Changes to Your ADHD Health

The start of a New Year usually brings an enthusiasm to look at yourself, your life, and your business. You can reflect back and see what is working, what isn’t, and make some positive changes. While there’s a lot of research to show that New Year’s resolutions don’t work, there’s also plenty of evidence that creating habits and setting goals DO work.

Make an easy change

Instead of making New Year’s resolutions this year, why not make some positive changes using goals and habits in your life? If you aren’t sure what area to address, I suggest starting with your health!

Entrepreneurs usually put their health at the bottom of their to-do lists. Yet, you can’t run a successful business if you have no energy or are sick all the time. Plus, the healthier you are, the less problematic your negative ADHD symptoms are going to be.

For example, getting enough sleep, eating healthy food, exercising every day, taking supplements like Omega 3, and managing stress are all known to help your long-term health, and also help your ADHD symptoms right now. It’s a positive cycle, too, because the more your ADHD symptoms are under control, the more successful your business is — you can focus more, feel calm, procrastinate less, etc.

Try this wonderful and fun health test

There’s a brilliant website that’s dedicated to your health called realage.com. The site’s creator, Dr. Michael Roizen, is a cardiologist. Dr. Roizen wanted to motivate people to take better care of their bodies and he realized everyone wants to be more youthful, so used this as an incentive. Some people are actually younger physiologically and mentally than their “calendar age” because they actively make healthy eating choices, protect themselves from stress, and are physically active, while some people appear to be older — by doing the opposite.

Take the quiz — which covers all topics related to health, from what you eat, drink and smoke, to how many friends you share your decisions with and how many major changes have happened recently in your life.

After you get your results and find out how old you “really” are, you are given a compressive checklist of actions to take to reduce your real age. You can use the checklist to motivate you and guide you to know what new goals and habits to make in 2013.

If you are feeling brave (or proud!), why not post your biological and “real” age in the comments below. We would love to hear from you!

Wishing you are very healthy and profitable 2013!!!
