It’s no secret that a healthy lifestyle is beneficial for everyone. Creating a positive mental state, making healthy food choices, and partaking in regular physical activity are all major factors to your overall well-being.
It’s no secret that a healthy lifestyle is beneficial for everyone. Creating a positive mental state, making healthy food choices, and partaking in regular physical activity are all major factors to your overall well-being. When you can maintain a balanced life that includes a healthy mind, body and soul, you’ll find that the external events of your life – all that stuff you can’t control – have much less effect on your happiness and success in life. Your health does not just make your body look better and help to ward off disease and disorders, it provides a solid foundation to the reality that you can create a better life and it doesn’t have anything to do with what is happening outside of you.
When someone desires to improve their health there is always a much more long-term commitment when they have made a whole lifestyle change rather than just deciding to try a new diet for 2 weeks. You really shouldn’t restrict foods or participate in a rigorous exercise regime for short periods of time. Although it seems to be a popular trend to try out the next new diet or be part of the next ‘exercise craze’, it isn’t these short bursts of diet and exercise changes that provide lasting health benefits. You will be much better served by taking the time and effort to truly look at your whole self; preparing yourself mentally, gaining lots of knowledge about healthy living, gradually adding positive habits and slowly eliminating harmful habits, and discovering ways to nurture your inner self as well.
Change is constant. Are you going to have control over some of that change?
Determination, self-motivation, and beginning with the end in mind will get you on your way to a healthier life. It really is all in your head – well… what internalises the need for change and the motivation to keep on track is all in your head. The power of your mind can make or break your success in anything you aspire to achieve. Achieving a healthier way of life is no different.
IS FOOD THE ENEMY?
We may think so but actually it is OUR emotional approach to food that lets us down. Remove the emotions and hey-presto a slimmer and fitter you. But if it was that easy then none of us would be overweight. So here are just a few methods to help you on your way…
