2022 Healthy Living Expo

Posted By: Ashley Sinclair News ,

Staying healthy, living well…that is all we want, is it not? How easy would it be if life did not
get in the way of all the things we would like to do for ourselves? The Healthy Living Expo of
products and services sponsored by CoreLife Novant Health Kernersville may be just what you
are looking for!


As an adult, “living well” can mean a lot of different things:
Diet:
Nutrition plays a vital role in self-care. Whether you are in the beginning stages of eating well or
if good nutrition is a priority now, you’ll appreciate the information provided by our nutrition
businesses. You’ll get answers to common questions, learn about the world’s healthiest food
options, find healthy recipes to make, and improve your health as your knowledge grows by
leaps and bounds. Ready to ‘dig’ in?


Exercise:
Some research says to exercise every day; other research says fitness should be three times a
week with vigorous activity. An effective and healthy workout has several components,
including a warm-up, stretching, cardio, resistance training, and a cool-down. But, no matter
what you chose, the key to staying fit is to keep moving. A sedentary lifestyle (sitting still) is
something that our bodies can get used to very quickly. Moving does not have to be strenuous or
hard on your body. We have the best businesses ready to empower you and help to get you
started on your physical fitness journey.


Sleep:
Getting better sleep doesn’t just improve your morning mood, it boosts your health. Good sleep
is one of the pillars of good health, along with exercising regularly and eating right. Indeed, you
can’t achieve optimal health without a full rest every night. Everyone has ideal hours of sleep
that their bodies need. If it is six hours that you need, make sure to get six hours every night no
matter what. The average is seven to nine hours of sleep each night. Sometimes this is not
possible, so small power naps may be for the days when you did not get the full rest you desired.


Organization and Balance:
Keeping life organized often feels like a juggling act. Everything is on task and working great
one minute, and then next you just want to throw your hands up in the air! Instead of throwing
life’s tasks in the air in hopes you’ll somehow manage to catch them all, follow a framework to
keep every area of your life in order. Learning how to properly deal with problems, challenges,
or hurdles is something that we all need to work on. The Healthy Living Expo will help guide
you to organizing and balancing your life – and keep it that way. Hopefully, you will leave the
Expo knowing how to balance your life across all areas that are important to you: relationships,
finances, health and fitness, business, school, work, and at home. If we are healthy and grounded
then the relationships benefit and so do we. Less juggling, more living.


Regular check-ups with our primary care physician are very important. In the times of WebMD
and zoom appointments, we do not have the opportunity to sit down and have a face-to-face
conversation with our physician. Take the time to do this at least once a year. Records are an
important part of your medical history.


Keeping up with responsibilities is just one more thing on a list we could go on and on about.
Knowing that we have a solid foundation assists in balancing our everyday responsibilities. We
all have those things that come up and try to rock our world.
The above are just some components to staying healthy. At the Healthy Living Expo, there will
be screenings, informational booths, food, entertainment, etc. on all things healthy living.
