My search began about 20 years ago. You see, when I was in my early 20s I use to smoke, use artificial sweeteners, drink too much soda, coffee, and alcohol, and got little exercise. Finally, enough was enough! I couldn’t dismiss my health any longer. Things changed when I had children depending on me. A healthy lifestyle make-over needed to be made but unfortunately my health suffered dramatically which in a sense is where my real journey towards maximum health began!
No matter where you find yourself today you can make a transformation and enjoy the benefits of a balanced life. If I can do it anyone can! It’s a process not a quick fix kind of like peeling on onion 1 layer at a time. You’re going to change from one style of living to another. It takes time, effort, and patience. You’re not alone.
To get started on your personal healthy lifestyle you’ll need information.
- Evaluation of nutritional status, fitness and stress levels
- Goal setting
- Creating eating and fitness plans
- Application of principles in program design
- Periodic Assessment
First you need to evaluate your present condition. What are your eating habits like? Do you prefer fast food to vegetables or chocolate to fruit? How much water do you drink per day? How much stress is in your life? Do you regularly get enough sleep? We all start someplace and step-by-step you’ll begin to experience a dream come true as you realize your goals. Reaching goals equates to following a realistic plan that fits your lifestyle. Bring small changes into your life and before you know it they become habit. As you apply a program that is individually tailored you’ll be successful in periodic assessments which will fuel motivation in making dreams become reality.
By jumpstarting a healthier way of life you’ll be improving your self-confidence. Just think how you’ll feel when you put on those pants that haven’t fit for years or how you’ll respond with the many positive comments you receive. It will feel great not to have that extra jiggle when you walk because you’re firming up all over. It is worth the effort to fan into flame a renewed sexiness and vitality. Your self-confidence will grow by leaps and bounds.
In addition, living a naturally healthy lifestyle can save money through disease prevention. By being proactive you won’t need to go to the doctor as much or need medicine as often which will save you thousands of dollars. You’ll also help to eliminate your chances of getting numerous preventable diseases bringing you peace of mind. Who can put a price on disease prevention and peace of mind?
The key is balance and consistency.
