Guidance on How To Live a Healthier Life

We can provide tailored-to-you tips for living your best, healthiest life.

You want to talk with your doctor about improving your health and lifestyle; however, maybe you’ve discovered that there isn’t enough time in your doctor’s appointment to get the personalized recommendations you’re looking for. While healthcare has undoubtedly changed over the years, the way our Southfield, MI, doctor Dr. Antoine Geffrard provides care hasn’t. If you’re stumped about how to improve your health, we can help.

Eat a Healthy, Whole Diet

What you eat can either nourish your body and fuel it or cause chronic inflammation and trouble down the road. A healthy diet involves whole foods only, such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, healthy fats, nuts and seeds, legumes and low-fat dairy. A Mediterranean diet is an excellent example as it provides your body with nutrient-dense foods you need for optimal health while removing all the junk.

Get Optimal Sleep

Sleeping is a skill, which means that you can learn how to sleep like a champ even if you don’t right now. Adults should aim for seven to eight hours of sleep a night. Prioritizing your sleep is the best thing you can do for your mental and physical health, as sleeping is when your brain and body can repair and detox. If you are having trouble sleeping, our Southfield, MI, doctor can help uncover how your current health and lifestyle impact your sleep hygiene.

Get Regular Activity

When people hear the word “exercise,” they immediately think of going to the gym or huffing it in spin class. If you love the gym, more power to you, but many people dread going. We want to make getting regular activity easier for everyone. Household chores, gardening and a brisk walk around the neighborhood all count toward your daily activity. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderately intense aerobic exercise every day.

Find Your Tribe

Humans are social creatures. While technology makes it easier for us to stay connected, it’s also a source of disconnection in our world. Carve out time with family, friends and like-minded individuals that share the same interests as you. Research has shown that having a solid support system is linked with higher levels of well-being and longer, healthier life.

Want recommendations and advice that’s tailored to your health? During a consultation with our Southfield, MI, doctor, we will review your medical history, medications and lifestyle to learn more about you. From there, we will recommend changes to your lifestyle that could improve your health in the long run.
