This post may be a bit contradictory given yesterday’s QOTD (the one suggesting you have enough information ;). But I think that for those who may be stuck a bit in analysis paralysis, having some simple suggestions can be helpful. For one, they can be useful to bring the focus back to a 30,000 foot view rather than getting stuck too much in the weeds.
Anyways, in that spirit, here are Emily Deans’ three suggestions for addressing the mismatch between our evolutionary past and our modern environment:
- Enrich your micro nutrition. Eat nutrient-dense food. In my mind, that means whole, “real” foods. If your food has a label, you should probably eat less of it.
- Get plenty of good sleep if you can.
- Exercise as tolerated. Longer, easier stints such as gardening, walking and hiking will give a lot of benefit with less risk of injury.
Check out Dr. Deans’ post for more details … as long as it won’t stress you out ;).
