When we think about being ‘healthier’, we associate some sort of effort with it and a drastic change in lifestyle. Although it is a change in lifestyle, it is also a change in mindset and day-to-day habits that has led you to believe that you are not living as healthy as you could be. For me, when I think about being healthy, I associate it with much more than what goes into my body but what I project onto the world too. You see, if you project positivity, the likelihood of you receiving it back is greater than if you were to project negativity.
When looking to gain a healthy lifestyle, you have to look at your own personal life and choices because my approach may not be the same to yours and that’s okay. So, I’m going to share four ways I plan to stay healthy!
- Eat breakfast!
I was never really one for breakfast and that would usually affect my entire day. It boosts your metabolism and for me, helps to subside some of my sweet tooth cravings.I really want to get into the habit of having a good breakfast each and every morning! For breakfast, I usually go for a nice full bowel of ingredients consisting of nuts, rolled oats, wheat flakes and raisins. I usually have far less yoghurt than in the image, but hey! I had to take a cool pic for you guys! As you guys can see, I used four key ingredients for my breakfast. Can you see the pun? I want to find more healthy and yummy breakfasts that I can incorporate into my daily routine so that it doesn’t feel structured because we usually associate diets with that of structure.
2. Doing what you love or find a hobby.
I am so lucky to be doing what I love but if you have a job that doesn’t allow for much creative stimulation then you should do that just to keep your sanity. For me, I am going to try and focus more on my photography and taking more creative images. I’ve always loved photography and it goes hand in hand with my career so that’s always a bonus!
For some of us, this is the last thing we want to be doing but start off in light doses. Maybe go for a walk on the beach or take advantage of that first free trial class to that yoga class and see if its something you would be in to. For me, I would like to focus on my running so I have entered a half marathon and I want to beat my previous record. When starting something, it’s always good to give yourself a goal. I have given myself a goal because it’s easier motivation.
4. Quality time with the RIGHT people.
I’ve always liked to surround myself with positive people because it definitely affects your progress in life. Sometimes we don’t realize that people are toxic but this is so damaging to your mental health and can impact the way you think and your habits that you adopt. Never surround yourself with people that bring you down or belittle your aspirations so I am definitely lucky to have the best people and I want to continue to attract positive people into my life. It’s easier to achieve your goals when you surround yourself with people who have a similar positive mindset to you.
