If you’re fit, are you bound to have a good life? Well, in terms of being healthy and not being prone to illnesses you are.
Good life and fitness are synonymous for many of us. But unfortunately, not all people will come to that same conclusion.
A good life and a good health – that’s what we want, but how do you know if you have it? When you visit your doc, do you ask him that question? Or do you just ask for more medicines?
So how will you find out if you have a good life and fitness altogether?
What good life means to you
First, you have to think what good life means to you.
For some, it may mean having all the extravagances in life or having lots of capital. Others may think of it as living a healthy life.
If the latter is your definition of a good life (regardless if you have lots of money or not), then by my standards you chose the better one. If this is your view of life, then you might be physically fit as well.
If you spend a healthy lifestyle, you will have the chance to earn more money because you have more energy to do and learn new things, and you seldom get sick. You can work for long hours if you like (if you just remember to listen to your body and exercise enough), and you can buy all the necessities that you need.
Whereas, if you’re not healthy, you are low on energy, you will get sick more easily, and some of your expenses will be for medical costs. So it is like taking a pill when you should instead gear towards healthy habits in your life
Living a good and healthy life means that you eat healthily and that you do some fitness exercises. Fitness and outdoor activities help you stay physically fit and also mentally in good shape.
Motivation is the key
Health clubs or fitness gyms are good places to start if you need assistance to keep yourself on track and motivated.
You can do your exercises at home. It is quite handy because you can do it at any time that best suits to your daily routines.
Evaluate your lifestyle
The next action is to look at your lifestyle. Are you currently doing any fitness activities? Do you have any bad habits that you want to get rid of? Do you feel like you get sick more often than others?
Ask yourself all the critical questions to determine your health’s state at present. You can find motivational factors for a healthy lifestyle from there.
If you do not have a healthy life now, then it’s high time to change those unhealthy habits. You don’t need to make a big change at once, but rather with small steps so that you don’t get frustrated.
How to change?
How will you go about the process? It’s easy to say that you can start at any time. So just start. But it is not that easy, even if you are determined to work for a good and fit life.
Start replacing your unhealthy habits with healthier ones slowly. Nobody can change overnight. Little by little, you will have some changes taking place, and you will thank yourself for it. Aim for a small change that you can see, that keeps you motivated to continue.
If you have difficulty in changing your eating habits, you can seek the help of a dietician, an expert in nutrition and the regulation of diet. A sample of healthy menus to support your daily eating can help a lot.
Fitness exercises that are easy to start:
- doing push ups, step ups, lunges.
By doing them regularly, you can burn a lot of unwanted fats and gain more energy in your life. These are great cardiovascular exercises as well.
