There are many keys to a healthy lifestyle that anyone can take action towards. And I would like to mention a few that I believe to be very important in our lives. I’m a mom that knows the importance of practicing healthy habits everyday. My purpose is to make sure that my kids learn these habits and benefit from them greatly as they get older and become independent.
And because I love learning about the subjects on health and fitness- I want to share my experiences and knowledge with you in hopes to help you create greater health in you and your family’s life. On my website, you will find some simple ways that you can really create great health in your life. All you have to do is take small steps everyday and stay focused.
If you’ve been thinking the thoughts of living a healthy lifestyle and wondering what does it take, than you’ve already started the process rather you know it or not. Now the next step is to act on those thoughts. Thought+Action=Result So personal action must supplement your thoughts.
1. Healthy eating habits
One of the main keys to a healthy lifestyle is healthy eating. We must balance our meals with healthy food choices from all of the food groups. Choosing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables will ensure a strong and healthy body. Creating this healthy habit is one that is worth every effort.
2. Supplement your meals
Eating healthy certainly has it’s effects on your overall health but the reality is that food isn’t what it used to be.
Modern agriculture has robbed our soils of essential minerals and unfortunately, our plants are deficient in these nutrients also. Plants need over fifty vitamins and minerals, and our soils only typically receive phosphorus, nitrogen and potassium.
If our plants are vitamin and mineral deficient and our bodies can’t obtain these essential compounds, where else are we supposed to obtain them from?
Today, most of us are not eating the minimum required fruit and vegetable servings. And even those who do are probably also missing nutrients.
Please note: Supplementation is not a substitute for healthy eating. It’s only a tool that can help give our bodies certain nutrients that our foods can’t.
3. Changing bad habits
We all have habits that we live with everyday. Some are good and some are bad. Smoking and regular or heavy drinking are all bad habits that should be eliminated- especially if you have the desire to live a healthy lifestyle.
I do understand that habits are not easy to get rid of- (they die very hard.) Habits are ideas that are fixed in our subconscious mind that control us.
But did you know that those habits you didn’t even create. There other peoples habits. It’s true. We’re a product of somebody’s way of thinking. It’s genetic and it’s environmental.
The only way to get rid of these bad habits is by replacing them with good ones. Remember, you can’t put something where something already is. Lets say you’re sitting on a chair- understand that you can’t put anything where you and the chair are until you move it. You have to create a space for the good that you desire in your life.
4. Exercise is an important part of life
The two perfect match for living a healthy lifestyle is eating healthy+exercising. Exercising is another key to a healthy lifestyle.
If you just incorporated an exercise routine and follow a less-than-perfect diet you will definitely be more healthy than if you have an excellent diet and never consider exercising. Exercise is so important in our lives.
Our bodies were designed to move, not to sit. And the wonderful thing about exercise and the human body is that a little bit goes a long way. You can start with walks and then work your way up to challenge the body.
5. Got juice?
Creating healthy juicing habits in your life are by far one of the best things you can do for your health. Juicing can quickly deliver nutrients to your cells and eliminate toxins from your body. I truly believe that if you add juice to your life, you will contribute greatly to your overall health.
I guarantee you that once you start making fresh juice a part of your life you will feel so much better and look better- and most likely be healthier too.
