The Mindset Needed For Living Healthier
Everybody wants to live healthier. However, many people fail to do so. It isn’t because they lack the motivation needed. Most people fail because their mindset going into their change in life is all wrong. This post will help you understand how you have to look at living healthier.
The terminology of living healthier often gets misused. First of all, you are not dieting. You are going on a healthy nutrition plan. That means you are not starving yourself and you can have bad snacks every once in a while. A bad meal one to two times a week won’t hurt your progress. You are not supposed to starve yourself either. Allowing your body to right amount of calories is healthy. It isn’t healthy to deprive your body of hundreds of calories every day. So, don’t diet, go on a healthy nutrition plan.
The next thing that trips people up is exercise. If your goals are just to get healthier, you don’t have to be in the gym every single day for hours every time! You can go around 3 times a week for around 45 minutes each of those days. Do some cardio (treadmill, cycle, etc.) and do some weight training (free weights or machines). If you miss a workout, it’s not the end of the world. Exercise is a lot easier than it seems if you take it a little less seriously (although don’t take it too lightly!).
Another thing that gets in the way for many people is the cost. Everybody thinks living healthier is so expensive! Many people give up because they believe that they can’t afford it. However, living healthy can be cheap. One of our earlier posts gives tips on how to eat cheap and healthy at the same time. You should definitely check that out. Other problems that people think arise are the cost of the gym membership or the cost of nutritional supplements.
Gym memberships don’t have to be a cost at all. Save up some money and invest in your own home gym equipment. You will save A LOT of money in the long run. Plus, no gas is used to drive to the gym. Even more money saved! Also, you save time by not having to potentially wait for a machine at a gym because you are the only user! Hard to beat that in my opinion…
Supplement companies do a lot to try and make you buy the most expensive product. However, many of the top supplements aren’t even necessary. If you can get it from food, you don’t need to supplement it. Things like our homeopathic HGH supplements are not something you can find in food though, so that is a good example of what to invest in.
So, now you know how to approach living healthier. It is all in your head. Don’t think about dieting and a strict workout program. Don’t think eating healthy is expensive, because it really isn’t. Don’t think you need to spend hundreds every month on supplements. If you have the right mindset going in, you will succeed with the results you desire!
