Health there say is wealth, getting into the habit of eating well and working out consistently is hard enough. But staying healthy and fit is even harder. Not until you get into a good form & healthy habits. It can be challenging to figure out how to stay at your physical best and stay highly fit and healthy. So, for that reason, I have decided to stipulate three principles or methods that you must follow if you sincerely want to stay fit and health all through your life. These principles that I am about to share with you in this post will help you to be able to stay fit and healthy at all time.
So, here are the three principles that you must apply in your everyday life and in your day to day activities so as to help you stay healthy and fit for the long term.
- Eat More Than Three Times a Day
It is always advisable to eat more than three times a day. Many people are used to eating three large meals a day because that is what our ancestors did when they arrived the New World. A decent breakfast in the morning, a light lunch in the middle of the day and a hearty dinner after a long work day. When you do get hungry in-between, you’ll usually either grab a vending machine snack or wait until your next meal, which can lead to unintentional overeating.
Also eating smaller meals more often can help you be more mindful of how much you are eating and when you are eating it. The best way to manage eating smaller meals more frequently is to learn to eat when you are hungry, stop eating when you are full and resist from eating out of boredom or stress.
- Write down a Detailed Description of What Being Healthy Means for You Personally
You sincerely need to write down a detailed description of what being healthy means for you personally, it is no longer news that the biggest mistake we make when we decide to start living healthier is using someone else’s parameters to shape our new lifestyle. One person’s fitness routine and dietary habits or way of eating is not meant for another person to follow, we have different approach to eating, and the best approach is to eat to your satisfaction. The key to staying healthy and fit is to figure out your own definition of health and decide how you are going to stick to it. You may define being healthy or getting fitted as getting six to eight hours of sleep every night, working out for 30 minutes three times a week and eating all five food groups every day. Anyways, if that is what is going to work with your schedule, then there is no right or wrong in it. The best strategy is to write down how you plan to modify your lifestyle and let that description shape your actions. When you follow this method then you can be able to stay fit and healthy all through your life.
- Make Exercise Part of Your Everyday Life
This one is the most crucial step you must apply if you really want to stay fit and healthy all through the rest of your life. You need to make exercise part of your everyday life. Exercise is very important to every human being who sincerely wants to live a healthy lifestyle, that is why sport and games have become very popular in the world today because it enable people to stay healthy and fit all the time.
Just because you don’t live at the gym or own your own fitness gear doesn’t mean you can’t stay fit. Sometimes it’s the small actions we add into our daily lives amidst other activities that make all the difference.
You sincerely need to find creative ways to stay active no matter how busy your schedule is. There might be days that you really don’t have time to head to the gym, even when you want to. You can do squats and stretch while you are on the phone. Invest in a standing desk or put together a makeshift version if you sit a lot during the day. Walk instead of drive, if it is practical. Ask a client or co-worker if he or she would rather talk and walk instead of sitting down for coffee. Also trekking a long distance is equally important, some people cannot do without motorcycle or their car, but I tell you, if you can park your car somewhere and have a distance trek or joggle, it will help you to stay fit and healthy all through the rest of your life.
