Remember, the difference between who you are and what you want to be is what you do about it. No-one can hand it to you on a silver platter, served up as health. You alone must recognise your own true worth. Healthy lifestyle isn’t about diets and great looking legs, although that’s a by-product of changing your lifestyle for sure.
When you look in the mirror what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Nearly ALL women and some men too, don’t like all of what they see. They want better hair, nails, skin; well, there isn’t any reason you can’t have it. And, get to keep it your whole life. The only thing stopping you is you. If you’re one of those people who want quick fix remedies for everything in life, then don’t read on-or maybe you should!
Quick fix remedies for all life’s problems are not the answer. Have you ever heard the saying, “you are what you eat” well, it just happens to be true, in-fact you are also what you do? If you want to make positive changes in your life you need to start by changing your lifestyle NOT your diet. Being healthy is about caring for yourself enough to make the lifelong changes necessary for excellent health.
It usually takes a few days to get into the new habits that will support your new lifestyle but stick with it, don’t go back to what is familiar, stay strong and cling to the new-found beliefs about yourself and the change will come. In fact your beliefs about yourself are integral to your lifestyle changes. Scientifically, being positive uses less energy than being negative so next time you find yourself grumbling or having a negative thought about yourself, know that it’s just a bad habit you have learned and you can unlearn it quickly. Just keep replacing the bad thoughts with alternative good ones. This feels strange at first but when you get used to it it becomes the new habit and hey presto!!
HEALTHY ISN’T A GOAL-IT’S A WAY OF LIFE
The body is a temple and deserves your attention day and night to care for every part of it both externally and internally.Think about this for a moment because it will make sense to you once you understand the implications. If you feed your child unhealthy foods all its life no doubt he/she will grow up very unhealthy and, worse, have those same yearnings for BAD foods. This eventually turns to an unhealthy lifestyle through years of abuse. Literally, when you are feeding yourself and your family BAD food you should know it is a form of self-abuse, self-sabotage in action. This isn’t necessarily your fault.Now, to stop all the years of abuse means having positive beliefs and courage to know you CAN do this. You can reverse the unhealthy to healthy.
Start by eating healthy -energy proving foods like vegetables: Cabbages, kale, Broccoli, carrots, leeks, root vegetables are best. They grow upwards from the ground and are known to be beneficial to healthy skin, nails, hair, but also, they feed the internal organs and blood supply the nutrients it needs to produce energy. You’ll notice the difference in your health after a little as a week when you throw away all the junk TV watching foods and replace it with all healthy types. Thinking about that, TVs make us lazy, it’s distracting us from real life, we go into a semi-conscious state watching it, and then switch it off to realise we just ate a whole bag of crisps and a big bar of chocolate!
MOTIVATE THE MIND AND THE BODY WILL FOLLOW
Your mindset is everything. Your body keeps an accurate journal regardless of what you might write down. It also recognises when you’re trying to fool yourself. Why? Because it’s the most advanced and excellent creation on planet earth. You might hold the key to your body on earth, but your body can choose to accept or reject it. The body’s signals are often subtle to start with, when something is wrong, you’ll get spots on your face, or blotches. Time to take care of the skin, how? Eating healthy food, the root vegetables I mentioned, fruits, are great too, try to eat them in season, and your body clock is in perfect union with nature. Go for apples, oranges, kiwi fruits, bananas, plums, and one of my favourites for blood cleansing, pomegranate. The best thing is to start investigating what fresh foods are available in your area and go from there. There may be items you need to order on the internet from health shops but, once you get used to eating healthily, so your body adjusts to its new-found wellness. By the way, once you’ve adapted to a healthy lifestyle your body will fight to keep it, so be warned!
Drink plenty of water, try not to go for plain old tap-water, but filtered water, or bottled water, preferably spring water, not the carbonated stuff. One of my favourites is drinking a tall glass of pure water with a slice of lemon and ice, with a sprig of fresh mint on top. Lemons are blood cleansers and kill bacteria in the gut, and mint is cooling and helps digestion. Remember-Healthy Life, healthy body, healthy mind all go hand in glove.
