Your current state of health is a direct result of your lifestyle over recent weeks, months or even years. We can therefore safely assume that our bodies are truthful reflections of our lifestyles.
If you are less than happy with the reflection, then perhaps it is time to consider change. Even if you are happy with your appearance, is your internal health of the same standard?
It is incredibly important to maintain active lifestyles not only to make ourselves feel better on the outside, but to ward off unwanted diseases that affect our internal organs, like diabetes or heart disease.
The most effective way of keeping our bodies healthy is a balanced diet and exercise. We’ve been told it so many times we’ve probably become immune to the message itself.
So why make a change?
To see a change
If you change your eating habits for healthy alternatives, you’re likely to lose unwanted pounds. Changing your diet can also result in added bonuses like smoother skin and shinier hair- which is always desirable. Adding exercise into the mix, maybe three gym sessions a week, will boost your results even further with a leaner and more toned appearance.
To feel a change
All of a sudden your gym and fitness habits will transfer into everyday life. For example, you may not feel quite so breathless after climbing a flight of stairs or you may not struggle with bringing in the heavy shopping bags from the car. You’ll feel awake and energised during the day and sleep better at night.
The most important thing to remember when you decide to make a change is to stick to it. The best way to do this is by making a habit of exercise and making fresh, healthy eating choices the norm.
