Attentive with a Daily Outlook for Health Improvement

No Comments

Good health is an overall concept that harmonizes mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Having a fit body is as much essential as is having a stable mind and a sense of profound happiness. Achieving this essential harmony is a matter of maintaining a daily outlook of positivity and working hard to maintain it.

For the sake of simplicity, you can classify your health regimen into diet and exercises. In addition, include recreational hobbies such as painting, reading, writing, sewing, or anything else that satisfies your soul. Maintain a balance of spending time with yourself and socializing. Just like partying all the time can diminish your connection with yourself, spending all your time alone makes you go out of touch of the human connection of friends and relatives. So, somewhere you always have to strike a balance for your well being.

This is not a difficult thing to achieve. Once you have the desire to be well, simply apply it in your activities arranged in a good daily routine. Maintaining this regular discipline is vital as it serves as an automatic motivation by itself, encouraging you to keep well.

Getting rid of laziness   

Laziness has to be the most obvious, yet the most understated of vices hampering well-being. It prevents you from getting up in the morning, affects the willingness to stay well, makes the mind dull, and resists the motivation to train in the gym. Simply remember that whenever you got to do anything fruitful, you need to overcome this internal barrier again and again. Essentially, the only way to beat it is to realize that it is not good and keep working on your realization actively.

Always keep alive your inbuilt momentum and deny the temptations to lie down or chill out unnecessarily. Remember that one must even earn repose and it is not anything that you should take for granted. Kindly forgive the language, but being a ‘couch potato’ gets you nowhere except into a dull dissatisfaction heavy on the mind. This depressive feeling also makes you heavily dependent on junk food, thereby only adding to your worries.

Once you identify your traits of laziness beyond the self-manipulation (that it is alright) and denial (that you are not lazy), actively work against them with gusto. The results may not show in a single day, but keep up with the efforts. Once you achieve the activity quotient you wish, work hard to maintain it from one day to the next. As for rest, set a specific time for getting to bed and waking up (careful with the snooze switch). Weekends are times for relaxing and use the weekdays to pack in as much activity as you can. 

A personalized diet

Plan your diet from a personalized viewpoint. Begin with setting your goals? Do you want to lose weight, or gain some, or rather still, be just as you are now? Remain flexible with these objectives as per changing requirements. For instance, in case you see you lost too much weight, put a pause to your current diet and change it for the reverse. So, here are a few general tips to set up neat food habits for the fit.

  • Never fill yourself up with food. Whatever you eat, always keep a little bit of dissatisfaction (positively). It is good for you as it keeps you light and helps the body to digest the food well.
  • Plan the diet practically. Fat is not your enemy, but excess fat is. Some vitamins are fat soluble as well, and you may want that extra layer of butter with your boiled carrots. Include veggies for vitamins but do not go over the limit. An excess of anything, even vitamins is not advisable. (Point to note: They are micronutrients, requiring only a slight amount.)
  • About the sugar, intake only that much carbohydrate that your body can burn without storing as excess fat. Keep your personal BMR in mind while you schedule these things.
  • As for animal protein, avoid too much spicy food all the time. The occasional indulgence is okay, but not always. If it is possible, avoid animal protein. People who practice veganism testify that they do not lack essential proteins. Besides, a vegetable oriented diet is more peaceful for the mind because you are already sacrificing your greed for flesh. There are ethical concerns. However, cooked poultry and cattle meat has been a part of the normal staple diet since the caveman days, so as such there is nothing wrong with it.

Just go easy on it and try to avoid the obsession to use your canines all the time. It eventually diverts to junk food addiction and leads to liver problems along with constipation. Finally, drink plenty of water. It is undoubtedly the best natural solution for detoxifying. Staying hydrated also means that your blood circulation is working fast, which means better absorption of the essential nutrients into the body.
