So how do i change my lifestyle?
That is a great question, and the answer is actually easier than you might think. Most people who are unhappy with their bodies are really only holding on to a few bad habits. Once these destructive habits are identified and then replaced with healthy habits your body naturally transforms from one you loathe to one you are proud of. Feeling good about yourself, both health wise and appearance wise, improves self confidence, self pride and overall happiness.
YOU CAN LOOK AND FEEL GREAT.
You can transform yourself into the person that you’ve always wanted to be. Don’t let another day go by that leaves you a slave to unhealthy habits. Take action now. By the way, I should mention another deadly habit that destroys too many people’s dreams - the habit of procrastination. How many times have you told yourself that you will start eating healthily tomorrow?
YOUR LIFESTYLE = YOUR BODY
How many times have you promised that you would start an exercise programme? Each day that you succumb to the habit of procrastination is a day that pulls you further and further from your goals. Break that nasty habit of procrastination.
WHAT’S LIFESTYLE GOT TO DO WITH IT?
It happens to everyone. That moment when you realise that it’s time to do something about your weight. It may happen when you’re looking in the mirror, standing on the scales or see a picture of yourself. Your first thought is to go on a ‘diet’ but as quickly as that enters your mind the ghosts of a hundred diets passed return, along with all the frustration and feelings of failure.
THEN YOU WONDER, WHY BOTHER?
The weight will come back, as it always has. Then you’ll be back in front of the mirror discouraged as ever. The answer is not to go on another diet! The answer is to CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE.
You’ve heard this before, and it makes sense, right? So why haven’t you done it? Your lifestyle obstacles. Most people resist changing their lifestyle for two reasons. Change is scary. Whether you realise it or not, your life is in a constant state of change. Though you cling to the familiar, it’s a futile struggle. Change always wins. The most consistent thing in life is change. Since you’ll never escape it, you might as well embrace it and channel it. It’s time to make the change in your life purposeful and positive.
How many times have you heard the term ‘healthy lifestyle’ only to picture a health nut with celery sticks in one hand and tofu in the other? The truth is most people think that changing their lifestyle will be an extreme and unpleasant experience—and that’s not true.
Tough times don’t last. Tough people do. Improving your lifestyle does not mean swearing off chocolate or living in the gym. You don’t have to eat cottage cheese for lunch and you can still enjoy your favourite meal. The key is moderation.
