(NaturalNews) There are tons of advice out there about what great health is and how to attain it. Rightfully, we spend time and energy pursuing our health goals which are often only a heartbeat away. Those who are new to the journey or even some who are not so new can find staying on the path to be challenging. With all of the enticing advertisements for food and drugs and health "gurus" who end up confusing folks, it can feel like a daunting task but fear not. Life, in general, requires mindfulness. Mindfulness is keeping the things you need to do and why you need to do it in your fore-thoughts. Mindfulness is constant awareness and when used consistently will become what is most familiarly known as a "habit." The proof of this bares itself in the fact that we have manifest in our lives the things we think about intensely the most often whether they be positive or negative.

Position yourself for great health mentally

Constant day-to-day pressures and demands create the perfect storm for poor overall mental health. Technological advances have made it easier to communicate and disseminate all types of information, which can increase anxieties and distressing mental vibrations. There are several ways to combat mental and emotional distress mindfully.

Spend time with friends who are positive and health minded. These are the people who will help guide, support and nurture you as you provide the same to them. After all, proximity is power for the mindful. Be a great example for those around you, because you tend to attract people to you that either do the same things you do or emulate what you are doing.

Identify and address emotional issues immediately, because they can cloud judgement. This is especially true of anger and guilt. These two emotions can overwhelm the senses easily and are the chief mechanisms used to control and manipulate others increasing mental agitation and negative thinking.

Be on the lookout for the good in life and people. Through continuous reinforcement, we often find it easier to be overly wary of others and situations. When this happens we often overlook the good things life has laid before us, and great mental health is the sacrifice we offer to maintain such dark dispositions.

Position yourself for great health physically

Great physical health not only requires us to learn about our individual bodies and what works best for us to optimize health but also requires keeping all of these health nuggets ever present in our minds. Keep blood sugar levels even by eating whole foods often throughout the day. This will decrease inflammation in the body, which is a key indicator of poor physical health. It also decreases spikes in blood sugar and is helpful for controlling weight gain which can also lead to inflammation.

Another helpful tidbit is to get moving with a variety of activities. Spice up your workouts by varying what you do and how you do it. Mindfully consider that routine can breed contempt and lead to a lack of follow-through on maintaining physical activities.

Systemic detoxification, especially of the liver and colon, is imperative for maintaining positive physical health or reversing negative physical health.

I realize that for some these pointers are pretty apparent and easily maintained. But for those of us who may be struggling just a bit, keep in your fore-thoughts the positive physical and mental things you need to do to produce those great habits. Mindfulness is the key! To ensure you are on the right track and for individualized help, seek a healthcare professional who can tailor a plan that is right for you.
