Try asking, ‘Is it difficult to choose salad over biryani?’ And trust me, you won’t even get an answer, an eye-roll will do the work. Choosing health over happiness is sure hard. Living a healthy lifestyle is our least payback to our precious body and a way to put an end to all our cribbings, but this seems to be, and is, a hell of a difficult task.
Seeing the sunrise from behind the clouds is surreal, but leaving the cozy bed is almost cruel. Tuning to the greens and activeness is no cakewalk, but neither is it a punishment. I’m sure we all have heard this saying, “happiness is a state of mind” and if you take a deep breath for a second, stop your involuntary groan, I can guarantee you can start liking early mornings and the greens. And to help you fall in absolute love and feel ecstatic about your new lifestyle we have come up with the best possible tips and tricks.
Fool your brain:
I know it sounds evil but you’ll have to. Your brain, sadly, is going to give you a hell of a time parting with its comfort food for fresh fruits, salads, etc. But a little self-talk might help and eventually, you’ll sleep with the desire to behold the magical sunrise every night.
Understanding the dynamics of a healthy lifestyle:
Only eating healthy or only exercising is not a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle is a mindset. Taking your nutrition seriously and understanding your body needs can prove to be a potential boon in your new undertaking.
Knowledge is everything:
Before going on a trip some research and in-advance preparation is a must. Fire your screens and type in the silliest things such as ‘benefits of waking early in the morning’, and gather information, similarly search about eating patterns, or healthy diets. This will motivate you to start things.
Next, depending on your research, set goals. Remember to give humble targets and practice patience, your body will take time to adapt to this new routine and then get accustomed to it and eventually, will show results. Once you have started your not so wonderful but also not painful journey, you need to, from time to time, counsel yourself and keep calm, your dream body or prefect figure won’t be achieved in a single month or a week. The 7-day or 15-day challenge is not where you should focus. The mantra is to smile and do this, the more you enjoy the less task-like this whole transformation is going to look.
Doing it right:
After setting off on your own, having your body motivated and all settled in the healthy zone you can go forward and seek a nutritionist to guide you further and get a professional trainer to assist you in your workouts. Testing waters before diving in is really smart and who doesn’t want to be smart.
It would be waste if you do something and you don’t enjoy and do it happily. Beauty is in the eyes of its beholder as well as in his thoughts. With summer around the corner, it’s time to dig out our yoga mats, skipping ropes, shoes, and sippers and start-off towards a healthy lifestyle.
