There are a variety of components that constitute a healthy lifestyle. Some of them are very difficult to argue about. There aren’t too many people who would argue about the need to incorporate physical activity and good nutritional choices into your life to help improve your health. No one doubts the negative impact that smoking has on your health anymore, not even the smokers themselves.
There are some, however, who question the role some other lifestyle factors have on people’s overall health. The amount of sleep you get at night has been shown to play a role in the amounts of both fat loss and muscle gain, but many have yet to take those findings seriousy. The use of dietary supplements is a huge source of contention among health professionals.
In the next few weeks, I’ll look at these components individually and how you can take responsibility for improving your health.
Today, however, it’s time to look at the most important component to improving your health: what you see when you look in the mirror.
You are the most important part of your health. Period. End of story.
It may sound harsh, but it’s true. And what it means is that if you don’t like what you see in the mirror, there is no one to blame but yourself.
But on the flip-side, that means that changes are completely possible if you want to make it happen.
The only thing that can stop you? That pesky guy in the mirror again.
So what are you supposed to do then? In simplest terms, just start doing something. There are literally dozens of ways to improve your health. Better choices, more activity, more sleep; all good ideas. Drink more water, cook your own meals, watch less TV; more good ideas.
Use common sense, and make good choices. You can do it if you make the commitment.
The vessel needed to make the changes you desire is staring you in the face every time you look in the mirror.
