As we are also trying to make some money ,close deals , Prospect and get more customers remember some people have left this world unexpectedly as a result of neglect of key health matters.

The health is the most important asset you need to achieve other life goals.

Of what use is your millions or even billions in the bank account with a poor health?

Here are 8 Ways you can Achieve some of your health goals as a Realtor.

1.Routine, routine, routine

“Being healthy both mentally and physically makes you feel good and gives you energy. My days can sometimes be long and unpredictable, so having a routine is key to following through with your fitness goals.”

The benefit of having a routine is something that can’t be overstated. It doesn’t have to mean rushing out the door to fit in a two-hour gym session every morning; it can be as simple as going for a quick lunchtime jog or doing a few pushups in the morning. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got an hour or five minutes, the important thing is that you do it consistently.

2.  When last did you go for a health check up?
Early and Annual check ups have prevented some people dying of cancer, heart diseases and many health causes.

Dear Realtor when last did you do a comprehensive health check up. Some people will say they have never been to an hospital for such since they were born ??‍♂️??

This is not too good, as you know health is wealth.

When last did you go for that breasts check up as a woman?

Dear Man when last did you check up on your prostrate gland especially if you are 40 years and above?

3. Use your mind
Exercise your brain daily as our ancestors did. Be inventive, creative, and aware. If your work is not stimulating (or even if it is), find time to read, write, play an instrument, and interact socially.

4. Avoid poisonous things

We all have busy days and when time is tight, it’s all too tempting to hit the drive thru at a fast food joint to get some calories in.

Please don’t. The things we eat either add to or take away from our health. All it takes is a little planning. Try shopping on the perimeter of the grocery store. Most of what is healthful is on the outskirts (fruits, veggies, meat). Avoid fast and processed food and also try to avoid the hidden poisons in foods like sugars, grains, processed foods, trans and hydrogenated fats, and mercury in certain fish.

5. Run really quickly every once in a while
When is the last time you ran as fast as you could (without being chased)? Do some form of intense anaerobic sprint bursts a couple times a week. This could be as simple as six or eight (or more) short sprints up a hill, on the grass, at the beach… or repeated intense sessions on a bicycle (stationary, road or mountain bike).

These short bursts also increase human growth hormone (HGH) release, which is actually released in proportion to the intensity (not the duration) of the exercise.

6. Move around a lot at a slow pace

As real estate agents, we tend to sit at our desks a lot. This is not healthy and researchers agree that it has similar long term health consequences as smoking. So commit to doing some form of low level aerobic activity 2-5 hours a week, whether it is walking, hiking, easy bike riding or swimming.

7.  Lift heavy things
We’re not suggesting you need to become an Olympic lifter, but if you’re able, go to the gym and lift weights two to three times a week. Ditch the machines and focus on movements that involve the entire body and in wider ranges of motion. Emulate the movements of our ancestors: jumping, squatting, lunging, pushing, pulling, twisting, etc.

This will stimulate your genes to increase muscle strength and power, increase bone density, improve insulin sensitivity, stimulate growth hormone secretion, and consume stored body fat—not to mention, it’s an incredible natural reliever of stress.

8.  Play
Spend some time each week involved in active play. In addition to allowing you to apply your fitness to a real-life situation, play helps dissipate some of the negative effects of the chronic stress hormones you’ve been accumulating through the week.

I remember an MD of a  Real Estate Company who once shared an image of himself  playing  PS 2 to calm down stress when his head is overheated with stress.
