Build healthy habits this World Wellbeing Week

WORLD Wellbeing Week has hit and it's reminding people to put more of an emphasis on both their health and what available facilities have to offer.

Spanning from Monday to Friday, June 24 to 28, different organisations in the area and across the world are encouraging lifestyle changes and making your own health a priority.

When it comes to your health, there are a few key points.

Fitness

Keeping active can have a lot more of an impact on your body than just weight loss.

According to Healthline, regular fitness benefits include increasing energy levels, building stronger muscles and bones, improving brain and memory functions and reducing risks of chronic disease.

If you're wanting to improve your fitness within the South Burnett, there are a lot of gyms around with trained professionals to help you reach your goals.

However, you might want to run past certain exercise regimes with your doctor, especially if you have any pre-existing conditions.

Food

According to Medical News Today, there are a range of pros for your overall health when it comes to developing balanced and healthy meal habits.

From improved gut health and a better mood to reduced cancer risks, diabetes management and stroke prevention, what you eat can really impact on your wellbeing.

As well as free healthy meal plans you can find online such as at Cooking Light or Plant-Based on a Budget, you can also visit your local doctor and get referred to dietitians in the surrounding area.

Keeping up to date

This is the part where you're encouraged to stay up to date with all kinds of appointments, from dermatologist check-ups to any overdue clinical appointments.

Even staying up to date with your flu shots is an important step towards maintaining a healthy year.
