5 Good Reasons Why You Should Embrace A Healthy Lifestyle Today

5 Good Reasons Why You Should Embrace A Healthy Lifestyle Today

Nowadays many people are stuck with the idea of getting the perfect slim body, often so influenced by media and magazines. The thing is there is not such a thing as the perfect weight and you do not have to look like a supermodel in order to feel good about yourself. The key in maintaining a balanced lifestyle is to do some little healthy changes daily in order to start seeing improvement in your health, appearance, activity and energy. Here are five key reasons why you need to embrace a healthy lifestyle today:

1. You will live longer

The truth is that by eating healthy and nutritional food and taking care of your body you will add up to your overall health and well-being. That will increase your life expectancy simply because your immune system will get better, you will suffer far less from diseases and colds and you will have much more energy to do the things you love.

A healthy way of living will give you a better quality lifestyle with increased confidence and excitement about being part of this world. Exercising can reduce stress and anxiety that comes from different areas of your life and make you aware that you need to focus more on your own health and body. With better life expectancy you will have a greater appearance, glowing skin and hair and you will look fitter and firmer.

2. You will look happier

By reducing stress and anxiety, your mood will improve and you will have much more happiness and excitement in your life. Being healthy from inside and looking amazing from outside will definitely increase your emotional state and you will start seeing things from the brighter side. Feeling great about yourself from inside and outside is the key to living a more abundant, happy and confident life.

Healthy food, exercising, meditation, yoga are all incredible things you can include in your day to day life in order to start seeing results in your attitude towards the outside world and bring more optimism and positive vibes around yourself. These are only a few things that can make you happier as part of a balanced lifestyle-you might want to practise a different kind of sport and create other healthy habits such as going to bed earlier, drinking herbal tea, reducing fat and caffeine, eating more green vegetables, etc. The list here is endless and it is up to you what kind of habits you want to create in order to live a healthier and happier lifestyle.

3. You will become more confident

When you start feeling good about your body, you become a much more confident person every time you look at yourself in the mirror. Maintaining a healthy and fit body can really boost your self-esteem and confidence. When you look good outside, you start feeling amazing inside too and that can be seen in all different areas of your life-at home, at your workplace and when you are out with friends. It is simply a great way of feeling confident and amazing at the same time about yourself.

4. You will inspire other people and become a role model

When you start feeling great about yourself and your body there is no way you cannot motivate other people around you to do the same. Your friends and your family will start seeking advice and ask you how you have succeeded in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When you are so full of life, excitement and confidence, other people will be seeing you as their role model and will be inspired to take care of themselves too. Each time you are going to the gym or including a healthy snack in your diet you are giving an example and encouraging others to do the same.

We all need to consider our actions in terms of what food we eat and how often we exercise as this has a huge influence on the younger generation-kids, nephews, nieces and cousins. What a greater way to be good role models for the younger ones when we could teach them more about nutritional food, health and sport?

5. You will look younger

Here comes the best part of embracing a healthy lifestyle-you will look and feel much younger! You will be full of energy because nutritional diet, enough exercise and sleep are the key ingredients in maintaining a balanced life. Eliminating junk food from your plate can have a huge influence on how your skin and hair look like. The truth is cutting out on bad food can clear your skin, reduce blemishes and spots and deliver a smoother and shinier skin.

That’s why-you need to have daily healthy habits if you want to maintain a fit body, have younger appearance, softer and shinier hair and glowing skin!

The 10 Essential Habits of Positive People

The 10 Essential Habits of Positive People

Are you waiting for life events to turn out the way you want so that you can feel more positive about your life? Do you find yourself having pre-conditions to your sense of well-being, thinking that certain things must happen for you to be happier? Do you think there is no way that your life stresses can make you anything other than “stressed out” and that other people just don’t understand?  If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, you might find yourself lingering in the land of negativity for too long!

The following are some tips to keep positive no matter what comes your way. This post will help you stop looking for what psychologists call “positivity” in all the wrong places!  Here are the ten essential habits of positive people.

1. Positive people don’t confuse quitting with letting go.

Instead of hanging on to ideas, beliefs, and even people that are no longer healthy for them, they trust their judgement to let go of negative forces in their lives.  Especially in terms of relationships, they subscribe to The Relationship Prayer which goes:

 I will grant myself the ability to trust the healthy people in my life … 

To set limits with, or let go of, the negative ones … 

And to have the wisdom to know the DIFFERENCE!

 2.  Positive people don’t just have a good day – they make a good day.

Waiting, hoping and wishing seldom have a place in the vocabulary of positive individuals. Rather, they use strong words that are pro-active and not reactive. Passivity leads to a lack of involvement, while positive people get very involved in constructing their lives. They work to make changes to feel better in tough times rather than wish their feelings away.

3. For the positive person, the past stays in the past.

Good and bad memories alike stay where they belong – in the past where they happened. They don’t spend much time pining for the good ol’ days because they are too busy making new memories now. The negative pulls from the past are used not for self-flagellation or unproductive regret, but rather productive regret where they use lessons learned as stepping stones towards a better future.

4. Show me a positive person and I can show you a grateful person.

The most positive people are the most grateful people.  They do not focus on the potholes of their lives.  They focus on the pot of gold that awaits them every day, with new smells, sights, feelings and experiences.  They see life as a treasure chest full of wonder.

5. Rather than being stuck in their limitations, positive people are energized by their possibilities.

Optimistic people focus on what they can do, not what they can’t do.  They are not fooled to think that there is a perfect solution to every problem, and are confident that there are many solutions and possibilities.  They are not afraid to attempt new solutions to old problems, rather than spin their wheels expecting things to be different this time.  They refuse to be like Charlie Brown expecting that this time Lucy will not pull the football from him!

6. Positive people do not let their fears interfere with their lives!

Positive people have observed that those who are defined and pulled back by their fears never really truly live a full life. While proceeding with appropriate caution, they do not let fear keep them from trying new things. They realize that even failures are necessary steps for a successful life. They have confidence that they can get back up when they are knocked down by life events or their own mistakes, due to a strong belief in their personal resilience.

7. Positive people smile a lot!

When you feel positive on the inside it is like you are smiling from within, and these smiles are contagious. Furthermore, the more others are with positive people, the more they tend to smile too! They see the lightness in life, and have a sense of humor even when it is about themselves. Positive people have a high degree of self-respect, but refuse to take themselves too seriously!

8. People who are positive are great communicators.

They realize that assertive, confident communication is the only way to connect with others in everyday life.  They avoid judgmental, angry interchanges, and do not let someone else’s blow up give them a reason to react in kind. Rather, they express themselves with tact and finesse.  They also refuse to be non-assertive and let people push them around. They refuse to own problems that belong to someone else.

9. Positive people realize that if you live long enough, there are times for great pain and sadness.

One of the most common misperceptions about positive people is that to be positive, you must always be happy. This can not be further from the truth. Anyone who has any depth at all is certainly not happy all the time.  Being sad, angry, disappointed are all essential emotions in life. How else would you ever develop empathy for others if you lived a life of denial and shallow emotions? Positive people do not run from the gamut of emotions, and accept that part of the healing process is to allow themselves to experience all types of feelings, not only the happy ones. A positive person always holds the hope that there is light at the end of the darkness.  

10. Positive person are empowered people – they refuse to blame others and are not victims in life.

Positive people seek the help and support of others who are supportive and safe.They limit interactions with those who are toxic in any manner, even if it comes to legal action and physical estrangement such as in the case of abuse. They have identified their own basic human rights, and they respect themselves too much to play the part of a victim. There is no place for holding grudges with a positive mindset. Forgiveness helps positive people become better, not bitter.

How about you?  How many habits of positive people do you personally find in yourself?  If you lack even a few of these 10 essential habits, you might find that the expected treasure at the end of the rainbow was not all that it was cracked up to be. How could it — if you keep on bringing a negative attitude around?

I wish you well in keeping positive, because as we all know, there is certainly nothing positive about being negative!
