Making sure I Lead a healthy lifestyle has always been a dream of mine. I’ve always wanted to be the person who drank smoothies, went running, and all of the super healthy stuff and never quite hit that mark. However, back in 2020, I was given a slip to live my life as I saw fit and that included me trying to live a healthier life.
At first, I wanted to do a complete overhaul of my life and start it all over, and it didn’t work out. I had a huge life change once I moved cities and decided to restart my journey, and ended up losing 30 lbs in the process! I never saw this happening even when I did make that commitment to myself and I would like to share the 6 healthy habits I did to lead a healthy lifestyle.
6 Healthy Habits To Lead A Healthy Lifestyle
Create Small Sustainable Goals
Instead of doing a large overhaul, like going vegan, and walking a mile every day, doing a HIIT workout was not going to work. Instead, I went vegetarian and started yoga. I love yoga and hate eating meat so it worked out great for me and fits more into my lifestyle than the rest.
Work With Your Cycle
I am not going to wake up early in the morning to work out. I just won’t, in the morning I like to take things slow. I might on occasion work out in the morning but is it something that I will commit to? Absolutely not. Again don’t create unsustainable goals, I do a small session at night and I’m able to do that regularly and I am and still feel healthier.
Don’t Speak Negatively About Yourself
One of the biggest things that stop people from doing things is a toxic mindset. This starts with how we talk to ourselves every day. Saying stuff like I can’t or “People like me don’t..” and whatever else you say reinforces the idea that you can’t or shouldn’t do something that you want to do. You have to start thinking positively about yourself and understand that yes you can do it.
Recognize That It’s A Practice And It’s Not Instant
We’ve gotten so used to things coming quickly and easily to us especially since we can order everything on our phone and not even have to talk to anyone. With a lifestyle change, it’s something completely different you have to consistently work at it every day and let it change you inside out.
Spend Time In Nature
Surrounding myself with nature throughout my day has brought so much peace to my life. It has been proven that spending time in nature can boost your overall wellness so please get out and get some sun, smell some trees, and be one with nature all of that can lead to a healthy lifestyle.
Find A Hobby
One of my strongest beliefs is to have a hobby that you do for fun. Not a side hustle but something that you do that just puts a smile on your face and joy in your heart. A healthy life starts with a healthy mind and you have to have things that you can look forward to after a long day so it isn’t just working. It’s nice and refreshing to learn and try something new and interesting.
These are some of the steps I took to lead a healthy lifestyle. They seem relatively simple but when life is simple that’s when the biggest change can happen! Stay strong and I hope this helps you on your journey I will see you next time.
