When I was a kid, my dad told me that if I wanted to be healthy and feel good, I needed to take care of myself. It wasn’t an easy task in those days—no apps or websites made it possible for me to log my food intake, track my weight loss or gain over time or even see how many steps I walked every day. But somehow, by keeping track of these things on paper (or whatever piece of paper was around at the time), I managed to not only stay motivated but also find ways to improve my health without even realizing it until later when we looked back on our progress together!
Stop labeling food as “good” or “bad.”
Labeling food as “good” or even “bad” is not at all helpful, and it can cause you to lose sight of the bigger picture and it’s easy to get caught up in a label that doesn’t apply to every item on your plate.
Some foods are good for you in certain situations and bad for others—even if they’re both labeled as fruits! For example, blueberries may be full of antioxidants but also contain high sugar and carbs (which will spike your insulin levels). If you’re trying to lose weight, eating this fruit would be counterintuitive because it’ll make it harder for your body to process information about what’s happening when it does so much work metabolizing those carbs into energy; therefore leading straight back into fat storage instead!
Try going for a walk when you just can’t imagine doing anything else for exercise.
· Walking is definitely a great exercise and easy to do anywhere.
· You can for a sure walk with a friend or family member.
· You can walk alone.
· If you have time and money, try walking with your dog!
You don’t have to be perfect to take good care of yourself.
If you’re feeling stressed out, it might be helpful to remember that these feelings are temporary and normal. It’s essentially important not to beat yourself up about them or try so hard that you end up hurting yourself. If something specific is bothering or troubling you, talk with a trusted friend who can help guide your thoughts back on track. You should also take time each day for some exercise—even if it’s just walking around the block—and try not to feel guilty about eating healthy foods when they please your palate (or satisfy hunger).
Now that you know how to stay motivated while improving your health, don’t forget to keep yourself accountable. If you need help getting started on your journey towards better wellness, try reaching out to friends or family members who have been through the same thing so they can give you advice. And always remember that it takes time—but with patience, hard work, and dedication, you’ll be well on your way!
