Healthy Lifestyle Comes From A Few Good Habits
A Few Good Habits…For your Healthy Lifestyle. I have followed Shawn K for quite a while now because I value her ideas for a fit and healthy lifestyle. She really does walk her talk, is in great shape, healthy, and vibrant. Today I want to share something with you that may help you develop a few good habits for your best life. Check it out:
It Takes Time To Establish A Healthy Lifestyle
“It really does take some time to establish a fit and healthy lifestyle. If you were to look at mine, you’d probably think I’m the most boring, non-spontaneous person around. And you’d probably be right to a certain extent. I know what works for me to keep me feeling good though, and I do all I can to keep doing what seems to be working.” is something I recently heard Shawna say about her healthy lifestyle!
A Healthy Lifestyle Lesson Learned Early In Life For Shawna K
She goes on to say “I learned this early in life. I was a serious competitive swimmer and spent morning and night in the pool. Shawna indicated that she was probably the only kid whose parents never told to go to bed. I had to get up before five most mornings to be in the water for 5:30 am. I remember getting up at 2:30 am sometimes and my mom coming into the kitchen and asking what I was doing. I’d be eating breakfast and getting ready to go, I’d be so worried that I’d miss my alarm that I’d misread the clock and just get up and get going.”
Lessons Learned Early In Life
One of the ideas she learned early in her life to have a healthy lifestyle and be able to do all that was necessary to compete in sports and do well in school was, “now granted, that’s just weird for a 10-year-old. One thing I knew though was that in order to feel good in the day, in order to get my morning and evening swim workouts in and to feel good all day in school, I needed to sleep. So off I’d go to bed every night in the daylight to get my sleep.”
Discipline Develops A Healthy Lifestyle
Shawna says “I guess you could call me a disciplined person. I wasn’t really born that way; I just learned that I didn’t enjoy feeling over tired and cranky. When I didn’t get enough sleep Id get stomach upset, head aches and have no energy. I learned an easy solution and applied it. That’s not discipline so much as common sense.
11 How To Live a Healthy Lifestyle In Any Year:
Make food count –
Stop mindless eating and make a promise to be more mindful of what goes in your mouth. Then promise yourself that everything you eat should have some nutritional benefit.
Don’t starve yourself –
This is slow down your metabolism and makes it more difficult to lose weight. Eat every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism revved up.
Go for the most decadent –
If you’re going to splurge for a dessert, go for the very best. Make it an occasional occurrence, but truly enjoy it. A quality treat of what you really want is more satisfying and will likely result in not overeating.
Find the exercise that you love –
It’s so much easier to do an activity when you love it. We call it exercise love. Spend the time to learn about yourself and what you like to do so that you can incorporate it daily.
Workout with a friend –
I don’t train with anyone currently, but in the past, this has been a great way to keep a commitment, motivation, and energy up for any workout.
Be uncomfortable –
Seriously, if you can talk all through any kind of workout, you’re clearly not working hard enough. If you want your body to change, you need to challenge it.
Try a fitness date –
See if your significant other would be interested in a date that involves fitness. You may just end up between the sheets for more intimate fitness with the fun that exercise brings to a relationship.
Treat yourself –
Turn off the TV –
Exercise your brain by reading a book if you need some down time. Honestly, what good has ever come of watching TV? At the very least, limit your viewing to what you really enjoy and stop the time wasting habit of turning it on just because.
Enjoy some quiet –
Life is so busy that if you look at your day, there may be a very little time when there is no back ground noise, people, traffic, whatever. It’s hard to ‘think’ in this chaos. Give yourself 10 minutes a day to do nothing, hear nothing and just let yourself enjoy some quiet and think clearly.
This brings me back to the start of this conversation. I think going to bed is one of my favorite things. I know that after a busy day, I look forward to crawling into a warm bed and turning off my head.
“And, I know that tomorrow will be a great day when I give myself at least seven hours of shut eye. You need to figure out how much sleep you require to feel great and then just sleep. If I can figure this out as a 10-year-old, surely this isn’t that hard a lesson.” Sleep is the forgotten pillar of health and by simply getting more sleep each night we can truly have a healthy lifestyle!”
