A Balanced Lifestyle isn’t Easy to Maintain

Food is Medicine

At the beginning of any new endeavour or change to the usual routine, it’s understandable that things will be rough. Having a desire to change something that isn’t working is a great step to making the changes many people will never face-up-to. Seeing the goal is the easy part, you may be reminded of the goal just by stepping outside your home, walking down the street and looking at all the fit and healthy people that make this look so easy. The reality is far from that if you were to ask many of those people, they have hard days and soar days, they make bad meal choices and run low on motivation as anyone does.

If you’ve been waiting for a sign to help you kick-start your healthy lifestyle, now really is the time to make action reality. People are dying around the world and people are worried about many other reasons including how to keep food on the table.

A balanced lifestyle is subjective but I’m talking about balance in terms of dietary choices and exercise levels, two key components that will help you keep your engine tickin’ over. Yes, exercise and gaining understanding over what you eat rather than caring only about the taste.

“The problem is my gym is shut and I can’t get to the shops earlier enough!” you may exclaim. Calm down my friend, you probably have the ideal food combinations in your pantry and cupboards right now and you can walk with your family as well as do a series of bodyweight exercises at home with no cost but sweat (a good trade).

Yes, it’s hard at the beginning but sweet in the end and I’m on the journey with you. We’re all on the journey maintaining our health so every pound lost and every healthy meal you make further strengthens your resolve. Good times and hard times will arise but keep going and remind yourself of the journey rather than the end goal. Another tip or two to help you along is to keep a diary of your great achievements and also look for a friend or family member to share the journey with, to talk to and to share difficulties with.

The times we live in require the wise man to look into what he feeds himself and his family because some foods are better than others in nutrition and affects upon your body. Take it a day at a time and get in contact with me for any questions you may have.
