In good times and challenging times, we strive to continually improve our Quality of Life and when we work on our homeostasis it makes us feel better and perform better.

Improving our Quality of Life and our Quality of our Days we should look at the following areas that contribute to our health and see what we can do to maximize the positivity and minimize the negativity of our actions and Interactions with the goal of Homeostasis. I think our level of Homeostasis includes and depends on many of the following:
The Food we eat
How Does Food and What we eat affect and Influence our Homeostasis?
Your Body is constantly working to maintain homeostasis. Your food intake is a way for your body to maintain your metabolic needs through the nutrition you get from your food. Dietary Fats, Carbohydrates, and Proteins both from a caloric stand point and a nutritionally sound stand.
As we look at the Carbohydrates you need and the Protein you need and the Fats that are also needed it is important to understand which foods in these categories are better than others, so when you make your choices you optimize your health at the same time therefore constantly heading to your goal of homeostasis
Your body also needs from your food intake the Minerals and Vitamin.

Poor sleep is linked to higher body weight. Short sleep duration is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity

The Friends’ and Family we socialize with
Do your friends support you, have fund with you, and explore with you’re the opportunities’ that await you
For most of us, being surrounded by negativity can be one of the most challenging things in our lives, especially when we’re trying to be positive. We want to stay focused on what feels good, but it can seem difficult when the people around us are complaining and talking about what is wrong with life.
Remember you always have a choice. Everything is always a choice. Where you work and who you socialize with is totally your choice. We can make choices it just sometimes seems we are stuck. You only have one life to live, lets make it count.
The Joy we bring to ourselves and others
What difference it would make if everyday you focused on bringing Joy to yourself and other people and waking up grateful for the day.
One single compliment can turn any bad day around to a good one. We all appreciate receiving a thoughtful compliment- about a job well done, an outfit we put together, or something else but just like us people around us appreciate compliments too.
The smallest compliment can go a long way. Pass on a compliment to family, friends and strangers.
