You’ll love how you look and how you feel after following a program from RC Fitness in Houston, TX. Best of all, you’ll be healthier and nothing is as sexy as healthy. You need to make health a priority, since it’s necessary to live a full life with energy to tackle all the other goals you want to achieve. Just being thin isn’t enough. Thin and sickly isn’t attractive. Fit, slim and healthy is. So how do you start focusing on health? You begin by switching to a healthy diet and exercising.
You can start all at once or ease into a healthy lifestyle.
While some people can change their lives overnight, it’s rare. Most of us make small changes one at a time and whether it’s for the good or bad, the process is in constant change. Making wise lifestyle changes to live healthier doesn’t have to start with working out every day or honing in on only healthy eating. It can start by dipping your foot into the pool of good health. Give up sugary products first or start a program of increasing your activity, walking thirty minutes a day. Once you adjust to those smaller changes, you can build on them.
Make two or three changes at once to help ensure success.
If you’re trying to quit sugar, alcohol, drugs or tobacco, combine it with a program of exercise and healthy eating. Many of these addictions lead to nutritional deficiencies, so focusing on a healthy diet can be a huge benefit for your health. An exercise program can also help take off the edge of withdrawal, and while that might not sound like something you’d expect when giving up sugar, it’s real. Sugar is addictive and affects the opioid receptors in the brain, causing a burst of dopamine that makes you want more. Exercise can help with the stress of withdrawal and get you through the cravings initially.
Look at your hydration and sleep.
A healthy diet, giving up unhealthy addictions and exercise are just part of the picture. Are you drinking enough water? Adequate hydration is important to your health. Increase your water intake to approximately 8 glasses of water a day. If you don’t like plain water, try homemade infused water. Adequate sleep is also important. Too little sleep can increase the hunger hormone and diminish the hormone that makes you feel full.
- Don’t set yourself up for failure. If eating healthy is a goal, buy healthy foods and have them ready. Don’t forget snacks. Have melon balls, veggies and dip or fruit salad in the fridge for a snack.
- Cut out stinking thinking. Change your attitude about diet and exercise. Rather than dread it, think of it as something that’s making your fabulous and enjoy.
- Put your workout or exercise program into your schedule and treat it like an appointment. Make it the same time every day until it becomes a habit.
- Success with a program that makes you healthier breeds success in other areas. You can do it and once you know that, you can change your life for the better in other ways.
