A good tip to prevent disease is to spend time with yourself.
Being healthy goes so much deeper than being in top physical shape. Oftentimes, we overlook our emotional health, because we view as a superficial idea, limiting it to how our bodies look. So, write in your journal, or take a bubble bath, and start taking care of yourself from the inside out.
Even exercise goes far beyond just shaping how our bodies look, it helps relieve stress, produce feel good hormones in our bodies, and even helps with a good night sleep. So, I suggest planning out your workout the night before, along with setting out your workout clothes, so that you have no excuse when it comes to start your workout.
Another tip is to get a good night’s rest.
When the sun goes down, so should you. In fact, when you sleep, your body regulates the hunger suppressing hormone, leptin, as well as your cortisol levels which keep your metabolism up. So, make sure you’re getting adequate rest every night.
Another tip is to get moving by doing something you actually enjoy.
The most important thing to remember when creating the habit of exercise is to do something you love to do. You simply will not be able to stick to a plan of exercise, if you’re doing something you don’t enjoy. So, figure out what you like. Do you like long walks, quick jabs, and upbeat spin classes. Find what works for you and do what works for you.
There is no better time to begin your healthy lifestyle than today. In fact the only thing we’re ever sure of is right now in this moment. The future is never guaranteed, so why wait to start living a beautiful, healthy, active life later, when right now is really all you have.
