Leading a healthy lifestyle can improve your quality of life dramatically. From more energy to reduced risk of life-threatening diseases, there are so many reasons why you should consider making healthier lifestyle changes.
These changes can include adjustments to your activity levels and your diet too. The basic recommendation for exercise is at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity each week. A balanced diet will include eating roughly 2500 for men and 2000 for women respectively. If you aren’t meeting these then it may be time to change.
Not sure how you can kickstart a healthy lifestyle? This is the article for you. We’ll discuss how you can make positive changes consistently which will result in you feeling healthier and more confident in your body.
This journey begins with a goal in mind and it’s working towards that goal that will keep you motivated. Want to lose some weight? Want to eat healthier? Whatever your goal, make sure you know what it is so you can give your lifestyle change direction.
It’s important to be realistic with your goals to avoid plateauing along the way. For example, if your goal is to lose 3 stone in a month, you most likely won’t achieve that. You may find this unmotivating which could lead to you falling off track.
Try different methods
There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to healthy lifestyles which means you may try different methods in search of the option that works best for you.
Research by lingerie specialist Hunkemöller found that 28% of people have tried a wellness or fitness trend after seeing it online.
One trend that had been tried by a fifth of those surveyed was the ‘Hot Girl Walk’, in which participants are encouraged to think about their goals, how ‘hot’ they are, and what they’re grateful for in order to help boost both physical and mental health without being overly strenuous.
Opposingly, the ‘75 Hard’ challenge (which has 742.1million views on TikTok) creates an impact on all areas of the participant’s life and requires far more dedication and effort.
It’s important that you try different exercises and diets, so you can find the ones that work best for you. For example, one person may enjoy weightlifting and live a vegan lifestyle whereas another may prefer long-distance running with a KETO diet. Find what works for you and stick to it.
It’s not just about diet and exercise
There are plenty of other areas that you should look after too. This can be anything from your mental health to correctly fitting lingerie sets to aid your posture and breast health. Take time to learn about your body and mind then find solutions that support your health and wellbeing. This will lead to a happier lifestyle in the long run.
Changing to a healthier lifestyle doesn’t happen overnight. It requires time and effort to find the best ways to improve your health and well-being. This is a positive change that you’re making and the benefits to your life will be huge.
