Finding a balance can be hard when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. Whether that means being happy with who you are or making the choice to better the person you know you can be. Being happy comes from the inside out. Finding the balance of life and all it has to offer can be hard, but its possible. Making the decision to be healthy on a day to day basis isn’t easy, but it’s possible. Going to the gym and watching intake of food isn’t easy…but it’s possible. Leading a healthy life is possible.
Find yourself losing interest in exercising and eating a healthy diet? Maybe you were gung ho for a few weeks and then your get-in-shape determination quickly faded — and you went back to your old, bad health habits. What if instead of making mega-changes with the all-or-nothing approach to weight loss and good health, you resolve to tackle a few simple changes at a time? Studies show that the health and weight loss habits that have the best chance of lasting are the ones that call for minor, doable changes.
According to Penny Kris-Etherton, PhD, a nutrition professor at Penn State University, the key is to take small, positive steps and move ahead consistently. “People need to be realistic about the changes they can achieve.”
