A lifestyle is a group of things, activities, beliefs that altogether constitute the mode of living of an individual. This includes the habits, the attitudes, the tastes, the moral standards, the economic level, etc.
A healthy lifestyle brings, besides personal satisfaction, also moral satisfaction. A healthy lifestyle will not only bring you health but you will also be in alignment with your body, society, nature, all living beings. We all deserve a perfect life, health, love, money, and all that we desire. And in order to have all that, we also need to be healthy in order to enjoy it. So a healthy lifestyle will bring you all that.
Unfortunately, most of us, we put our personal well being in the last place, we let ourselves distracted and we go with the flow while we let our life happen to us instead of living it. There comes a time in life when all this is unbearable and either bad situations happen or you awaken and you are reborn. So only you are able to break the circle and take your life in your hands, as it should have been from the start.
Tip No.1 Self Discipline
The secret for having a healthy lifestyle is self-discipline and it is as hard as you make it be. But from experience, only the beginning is hard.
The scientists say that a habit is usually made within 28 days, and after a habit is created, if you think it serves you well, you need to keep being consistent.
How can you decide if one habit is serving you well? This is an easy one! You just need to ask yourself: Does it make me happy? Then yes!
So considering our bodies and what it needs, we can build healthy habits regarding:
- nutrition: eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, they give you energy, vitamins, minerals
- hydration: drink at least 2-3 L a day, it helps your body eliminate all toxins
- rest: give your body 8-9 hours of sleep per day, it helps your body restore and heal
- physical activity: exercise daily, 30-60 minutes
- relaxation: free your mind and try to be in the present moment as long as you can
Tip No.2 Take Baby Steps
Another tip for starting a new lifestyle is to not overwhelm yourself! If you start with all of them at once, you will end up quitting the lifestyle before even starting it, before even seeing any results. This is not the purpose, the purpose is to make you healthy and happy!
With baby steps, you end up implementing the new habits that you want. Saying it is nutrition that you need to improve, for example, if you hate fruits, and you never eat them, then start with an apple a day and then increase the portion. Whatever makes you comfortable. You have all the time in the world after all. But from time to time challenge yourself in order to improve!
Tip No.3 Find A Good Purpose
Next tip is to find a good purpose! This will keep you on track when you are on the edge. A good motivation is not endless but a purpose is. Finding a good reason to improve, it can either be health, weight loss, moral reasons, ethical reasons, psychical reasons, then you become more passionate about it, and you start doing it to support your cause.
Please trust yourself, your judgment, and do not underestimate yourself. If you plan your time in advance you can do what you intended.
Good luck, with implementing new and healthy habits, a healthy lifestyle!
