How do you feel when you wake up in the morning? If you’re fit and healthy you should feel great because you have the world at your feet. There are not much people that enjoy the same pleasure because through no fault of their own they are in bad health. If you feel horrible every day it could be because of the way you’ve treated your body and you have to take responsibility for it. What would you do if you could change the way you live your life so you did always feel great.
I’m not talking about waking up and looking forward to work because if you don’t enjoy your job you won’t be jumping about with joy, but some people even struggle to get out of bed because they’re so overweight or they are so stressed because of the way they live. Tomorrow could be a day unlike any other and you could start taking the necessary steps to change your life. You don’t even need to think of what you’ll do because we can go over a few important things now.
Don’t get stressed
People think stress is a mental thing, which it is, but it’s also a physical thing that can lead to health problems. It’s easy to think you won’t get stressed because you don’t see it creeping up on you, but eventually it does and if it happens slowly you might not notice any difference even through you’re not firing on full cylinders. The best thing you can do in this situation is learn how to meditate because even if you only do it for 5 minutes per day it can make a big difference.
Light on your feet
When you are going through a hard time you might start eating more, or you might just stuff your face because you like the taste of pizza and cakes. No matter your reason for eating unhealthy food you need to cut it out because if you don’t you will turn into someone you don’t like. When you are eating yourself to death there are only two ways you can go. One way is to an early grave, but the other way is back down to a healthy weight that can only happen by eating the right food.
Strength of Hercules
People are scared to lift weights because they have a bad impression of it from bodybuilders. They think touching a weight will make them huge, but this isn’t the case and they are missing out on so much. If you don’t want to lift a piece of iron then use your bodyweight and do exercises on the floor, but you need to build up some sort of strength. It will keep you healthy and looking young, plus life is easier when you can open a jar of peanut butter yourself.
Smoking and drinking has to be two of the worst things you can do for your body. Damaged liver, yellow fingers, cancerous lungs, and a smelly breath are just a few of the things you can hope to get. If you don’t want any of them you need to stop smoking and drinking. If you want a casual drink then learn to control yourself and have one glass on special occasions, but the same can’t be said for cigarettes and you shouldn’t be doing it at all.
One of the easiest ways to catch a disease is by having sex without a condom and if you’re still playing the field it could be you. When we used to talk about playing the field it was mostly young people who hadn’t settled down, but these days’ older people are at risk more than ever. When you have to crawl out of your bed to the toilet then it starts stinging when you go it’s not a good start to the morning. Start using protection before it’s too late.
