Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the key to enjoying life at the fullest, it is scientifically proven that surrounding yourself with natural healthy habits and substances will boost not only your physical health but your mental state of mind and your emotional outlook. We understand being completely teetotal healthy is challenging, yet learning of some of these outcomes may help you to do more to benefit yourself. So you can be the best you can possibly be!
Okay… so a bit of an obvious one, but it’s just as important as the rest, if not the most important. Maintaining a healthy weight may come as a struggle to some as they fear the motivation of dragging themselves off the sofa with their Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. But, only you can change that, and simple exercises and a well-balanced diet will ensure that you’re hitting your target BMI. A good tip for those wanting to lose weight by regular exercise but are finding it difficult to head to the nearest gym, would be taking up a new sport with a friend, that way you can enter a more competitive mind frame and aim to lose weight together, rather than heading to the gym on your own. You won’t be pushed to your strengths! Also when your body weight reduces you will probably be more likely to wear gym vests.
Think of your body as a machine, a machine that requires all the right substances for it to work better and more efficiently. If you fail to do this the machine will break down! By eating healthier and exercising on a regular basis you are stimulating the development of endorphins within the body, endorphins are tiny brain chemicals that give you release with a sense of happiness and achievement. Everyone loves that happy-free feeling and you’re only a healthy meal or a gym session away from it…Give your body what it needs!
Stronger & Energised
Yes, all this work does pay off if you keep at it! Not only do you feel leaner and positive, the healthy substances combined with the intense gym work will of course lead to your body becoming more adaptable to sporting activities or even just walking, you will tire out less and feel full of energy. So, if you’re having that mid life crisis of worrying about how you will look or feel in your late 50’s, all the work will pay off in later life, helping you fight off diseases. So why not do it while you can?
Ah, food. Takeaways packed with calories and carbs, everyone loves them! But, how guilty do we feel after eating a big McDonalds meal at the end of the week with no exercise whatsoever. Stop using the phrase “Okay, healthy eating starts on Monday” Start now, lose the guilty feeling of having your favourite takeaway, put the work in through the week and maintain a healthy diet and when that Friday or Saturday comes around when you fancy a huge cheese burger meal, you’ll feel like you’ve deserved it rather than feeling guilty!
