Living A Healthy Lifestyle for 2008!

No one likes to be sick, have health problems, or experience pain, discomfort or disease on a daily basis. We all want the benefits of great health, lots of energy, and having the perfect desired weight, yet the benefits only come through good choices. Is making healthy choices really that hard, or are we just allowing our habits to control us?

Zig Zigler says as he basically quotes Gandhi, "For things to change, you have to change; for things to get better, you have to become better."

So ask yourself, "Am I willing to make a change permanently?" We sometimes make temporary changes, but remember that temporary changes mean temporary results. If we really want permanent results, we must make permanent changes!

So, what results would you like to achieve this coming year?
Would you like to reach your desired weight, naturally and permanently?
Would you like to eliminate some of your medications?
Would you like to overcome some of your ailments and chronic sicknesses?
Are you willing to make a permanent change to reach permanent results?
Think, what are you willing to change or give up permanently?

Here are some suggestions for living a healthy lifestyle consistently, easily and permanently:

1) Recognize that a permanent change is necessary, is achievable, will take commitment, and you need to do what ever it takes to achieve it. Study and educate yourself to find the resources to make changes that will give you lasting win-win results. Truth is truth, and sound principles should be sought after rather than fads or quick fixes.

2) Goal setting is like reaching a destination. Write down your long term goals, then set monthly, weekly and daily goals. Review your goals daily and keep your eyes and mind focused on them, just as you would for any destination.

3) Take the time to plan and prepare each day and commit to healthy eating and preparing healthy recipes. Shop at a market that will support your goals, then commit to preparing healthy foods that will work with your body not against it. Grab healthy snacks (fruits, raw nuts, etc.) and pure water that will also benefit you. Remember, it's the little things that are often the most important.

4) Commit to a physical fitness program every day - equal to the time you take to eat each day (about 1 hour). Plan different ways to add physical exercise naturally, just like you plan each meal. Challenge yourself, and reward your success (not with a chocolate sundae - but with something that will last like a new article of clothing, etc.). Having a consistent fitness program and being active is a key to increasing your energy, vitality and youthfulness, and losing weight naturally.

5) Surround yourself with health minded individuals, health minded activities, health minded literature, health minded foods, stores, restaurants, and events. This is a lifestyle of your choosing and if you have the support of other people and things, it will be much easier.

6) Your lifestyle, current or future, is all a matter of habits. Good habits of time management and planning, setting goals, eating healthy foods and drinks, and being active with a daily physical fitness program, will help you produce a positive, healthy, permanent change in you. Establish these good habits and let go of the old habits that keep you from reaching your goals.

Living a healthy lifestyle is attainable! And what's more - you can do it!

Have a wonderful year in 2008!

For your best health,
