One Simple Change - a lifestyle decision
For me, I’ve experienced all types of excuses. But what I have found, is that if you start to look at your overall physical health as a marathon, instead of a sprint, and begin to make one simple change at a time, you can succeed in transforming your life.
Here are 4 simple changes you can always come back to in order to improve at least one area of your personal health at a time:
Eating - take responsibility for the choices you make when it comes to the food you put in your body. Start listening to your body and see how it reacts to certain foods. If you’re really serious, find a doctor, nutritionist, or coach to come up with a personalized nutrition plan.
Sleeping - whatever you are working on, can wait. Our bodies NEED rest in order to recover from a hard day’s work. Schedule time in your calendar TO SLEEP. Set an alarm for yourself to turn off the screen, and go to bed.
Being active - you don’t have to be a triathlete in training to be active. Whenever possible, move: go for a walk, stretch, and if you enjoy formal exercise, find a group you can plug into (YMCA, county sports league, or friendly pick-up games)
Hydrating - get up right now and grab a glass of water and drink it! This is the SIMPLEST change you can make RIGHT NOW. And hydrating doesn’t mean just putting any liquid in your body - your body needs good ol’ dihydrogen monoxide.
