Our health is very important and should be a major focus in our lives. For many people they like the idea of getting up and eating healthy, exercising and living a healthy life, but when reality hits, they just don’t take the plunge.
It all starts with motivation. If you’re not motivated, it’s going to be tough getting yourself out there. You have to find some way to motivate yourself, whether it’s just putting a reminder on your phone or computer screen that says “get healthy today!”, setting goals and visualizing the healthier you! Whatever feels right for yourself is what you should do.
Exercising is a very important part of being healthy. Start out walking and then progress to running. When I say running, I don’t mean a 5k marathon but take it easy first and start out short distances (1 mile or two). If you’re starting from zero exercise, there’s no shame in that so just get out there.
Another way to exercise is go join a gym. With a gym membership, you are making a commitment to yourself and to others that you are going to take action. When that bill comes in the mail or the credit card is charged, it is a constant reminder that you made a commitment to yourself.
Change your diet
Your diet is going to make a big difference in your health. It’s actually a case of you are what you eat. You see, everything that goes into your mouth can have an impact on your mind and body so if you want to be healthy you should really watch what comes in.
Eating healthy is very important and it’s not too difficult either. All the junk food advertising all over the media is there because it is a business and it works. It’s just making sure you don’t fall into the trap that you need to change your habits.
