Getting healthy can be a difficult task, and sometimes we don’t even know where to start. It is important to gain control of your life around you and setting a plan. Dr. Goglia has these helpful tips to help you jump start a healthy lifestyle.
We can all understand that sometimes we get too busy with work, school, or life in general. Taking time to make a routine or a schedule can help us find ways to incorporate exercise into your lifestyle. By creating a time gap and committing to a consistent routine can help you reach your goal much faster. Consistency is key!
Eat When you’re Hungry
Most people can agree that sometimes we find ourselves at the foot of the refrigerator or pantry, doors wides open, looking to see what we can snack on – not because we’re hungry, but just bored. Eating out of boredom, stress, depression, or other negative emotions can be a difficult thing to fix. It’s important to recognize these patterns and making proactive steps to fix them.
Do it for Yourself
This is key. Don’t do it for anyone else but yourself. At the end of the day, your health affects no one else but yourself and making a commitment to yourself can be the greatest gift. Learn your weight loss type to help individualize your plan to lose weight.
Reaching a goal is probably one of the best feelings we can have. This is why setting short-term and realistic goals is so important. They are motivating timestamps that can help us stay committed and on track. Try writing your short-term goal on a sticky note and putting it on your bathroom mirror to remind you! If you feel like you’re stuck, read these helpful tips to prevent plateauing.
Of course making a plan is important, but actually getting started is just as important. Take charge of your decisions! Don’t rely on other people’s input on when you should start or stop. Also, don’t let others take control of your own attitude – sometimes something that is important to us, may not be important to others. Keep a clear mind and stay motivated.
