Living healthy is a choice. Overall, it means many things. Being mentally, spiritually and physically healthy is all interconnected. Whenever we work on one area of our overall health, we positively affect the other areas also. The healthier we choose to live, the more we want healthy choices. It feels good for all of the aspects that make up who we are.
Focusing in on physical health, we can commit to moving our bodies on a consistent basis for optimal health. Moving our bodies can bring many positive changes into our lives. Here are some of the advantages that movement can provide us with:
Will Power and Confidence
Incorporating daily movement into our lives requires dedication. When we move our bodies even when we do not particularly feel like doing so, we can see our will power in action. Being healthy is a choice with we make and we back it up with our will power to get it done.
Confidence supports success. When we are confident in who we are and how we show up in the world, we can have the energy to accomplish what we set our hearts to. Daily movement can provide us with the confidence we need to go out and meet the world. When we use our will power to push through the times we do not really want to move our bodies, we grow our confidence in ourselves. We know we have our own best interests at heart and we know we will follow through on them. That gives us confidence.
Being healthy and being successful is all about establishing healthy habits. We are what we repeatedly do. So when our self-care actions are healthy and we feed our bodies good food, and giving our bodies physical movement, we are building a healthy life for ourselves and establishing healthy habits.
When we begin to see the results of our healthy habits, that can be a turning point in our journey to total health and success. We can actually improve our own lives. We do have the power to be the best version of ourselves. We can use this motivation to help guide ourselves to accomplish all of our goals.
Better Living – eating less, taking vitamins, cutting down processed foods, working out and drinking plenty of water will keep you in the best physical and mental condition. This will make you think clearer, be more productive, active and healthy, live longer and happier and with all that, your chances of succeeding are better.
Moving our bodies helps us focus. Movement improves our concentration. We move our bodies and help our overall mental health. As we focus in on ourselves, we remember that the better we care for ourselves, the more we will have to give to others. Mental clarity is vital in success. Setting goals and meeting them is important in both physical movement and success. When we are moving our bodies, we are also expanding our minds and our spirits. We are feeding our entire being good energy.
We achieve health and success through a balanced approach to life. Short term solutions, such as fad diets, prevent us from dedicating ourselves to permanent lifestyle changes that help us maintain our total health. We balance out our lives when we focus on all aspects of healthy living. Movement, nutrition, hydration and appropriate restful sleep can be incorporated into our daily activities and this way we can build our overall health in a balanced and healthy way.
Our emotional health impacts our ability to attend to our health and fitness needs also. We can take care of ourselves emotionally by taking time to relax, choosing to be optimistic and surrounding ourselves with a support system of family and friends. We can choose to deal with our stress before it gets out of hand and ask for help when we need it to stay balanced.
When we are successfully achieving our movement goals, we can understand that we can also meet other goals in our lives. Moving our bodies can be just the beginning of personal success. Moving our bodies does not have to be work. In fact, it is best when it is fun. Taking hikes with friends, dancing in our living rooms, taking classes at the local fitness center are all great ways to move our bodies to success.
