Healthy living secrets are what we want. A ‘pot of gold’ at the end of the rainbow. A secret that is whispered, and shared only with a few. Exclusivity. Part of a secret club. Now – that is when we realize it is a lie. The secret is that there is no secret – just a matter of living healthily. The lie is believing that it is a secret – and the secret that it is a lie. Healthy living is making deliberate choices every day – a change a day is a habit tomorrow.
Healthy Living Matters
Healthy Living – A choice to take back what is yours
Healthy Living – The lifestyle change approach
Healthy Living – Balancing life
A need is something that is necessary for organisms to live a healthy life. Needs are distinguished from wants because a deficiency would cause a clear negative outcome, such as dysfunction or death. Needs can be objective and physical, such as food, or they can be subjective and psychological, such as the need for self-esteem. (Wikipedia: Need)
If our body systems are not in balance, our health may be at risk. The foundation of good health is keeping all body systems in balance. This means making choices that keep our body systems free of toxins, and all levels balanced through optimum nutrition, exercise, rest and clear thoughts. The choice is called healthy living and the result is wellness.
Healthy Living – Balancing time
The reality is that time is a huge factor in all of this. “I don’t have time!” The most classical of excuses when it comes to lifestyle change. Time rules every aspect of your day, so you simply find ways of avoiding, what will find you in the end.
When time runs out because you didn’t have time to look after yourself. Time is the top excuse for not getting into shape, microwave your dinner, putting your kids in front of the TV, and getting to bed way too late – because ‘time’ stopped you from walking, cooking, reading to your kids, and going to bed when you’re tired. Time is the one thing we cannot stop. We can, however, take back time, by making time work for us. Making a change today is a habit tomorrow. Making time work for you is a question of choosing your approach, making priorities, planning and claiming back what is yours.
Healthy Living – The Lie
Healthy Living – The Secret
Healthy living is not a secret – that is the secret. Healthy living is making deliberate choices every day. Healthy lifestyle choices that pay off in every way possible. You do have to work for it. That is the second secret. This is not hard work. It is a matter of understanding basics about food, exercise, mindfulness, hydration – and planning. Small changes every day that add to your health account – and with time you find that changes have become habits. You are a happy, healthy, younger looking proof that Healthy Living works – every day.
