“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Your body is the only one you’re going to have – so it seems like the most sense to treat it right, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, many of us are often so busy with work, family, and other obligations that our long-term health can start to take a backseat. Thankfully, our bodies can talk to us – even if we’re not always listening.

We all spend our lives hoping to be a better person than yesterday. To set a good example. To be kind and honest. But being kind and generous with your life and your energy serves no one when your body is silently suffering from lack of sleep and proper nourishment, says holistic health coach Amber Chalus.

When our bodies start to show signs of distress, it’s important that we take the time out to listen to what they need and to make changes in our lifestyle. Neglecting your body is one way to make sure that both your physical and mental health will start to suffer. Making sure you know the signs of a neglected body means that you’ll be able to make the changes that it needs right away, rather than letting it get put off more and more.

Here Are 5 Warning Signs You’re Neglecting Your Body

1. Low body temperature

As most people know, a healthy body temperature is about 97.8 degrees, with about a one-degree margin on the higher side. Anything above 99.4 degrees is usually considered a fever, which is what most people know to look out for. However, a body temperature lover that 97.8 degrees is an indication that your body is seriously lacking some energy.

A low body temperature is a sign of both slow metabolic and thyroid function. Dr. David Jernigan says, “A low body temperature creates a happy home for viruses and chronic infections, and is a sign of degeneration and gradual cellular death.

Therefore, if your temperature is consistently 1 to 2 degrees below the norm, it’s best to seek out a doctor and get your thyroid and metabolism checked out.

2. Suffering from chronic fatigue

If you’re feeling constantly tired, worn out, or like you just can’t get enough energy, your body is definitely trying to tell you something. Dieting can cause issues when it comes to being able to feel completely well-rested and ready to go. A diet that is low in carbohydrates means that your body isn’t getting enough energy that it needs for your day-to-day nutritional needs. It can also be a sign of poor blood sugar. Making sure your body is getting the right food and the right amount is more important than sticking to a crash or fad diet.

3. Experiencing insomnia or poor sleep quality

Do you ever have trouble falling asleep? Perhaps you find yourself staring at the ceiling well into the night, despite the fact that you’re so bone tired you could fall over if you tried to stand up. This is a sign of insomnia, and it means that your body is all out of fuel – and stress is the only thing keeping you going! Along with insomnia, having trouble staying asleep is another cry for help from your body. Talking to your doctor, or setting consistent bedtimes, is the best way to even out your sleeping patterns.

Like Dr. Neil B. Kavey mentions, “… consider the toll insomnia takes on your life, the effect it has on your family, your ability to work at a high level, and to socialize with others. The consequences are so enormous that it’s important to do something about it.
