How to make Fitness A Lifestyle

Whether you’re in the ‘zone’ with your workouts, or in a serious workout slump, the rule for your best, healthiest life is the same – get fit, and make it a lifestyle; not a mere destination. Here are some of the easiest and most efficient ways to get you in the mood to tighten and take your workout up a notch, until it becomes a natural way of life!

Yoga for Strength: Is yoga as effective as strength training?

You learn to enjoy life when you are on vacation and away from your gym and kitchen because you have developed the habits and skills to live a healthy lifestyle no matter where you are.

You just need to set some extreme goals for your life but when your expectations are not intense then you end up messing your fitness and health and may have to start again.

Here are a few tips to start making fitness a lifestyle today:

1. Find an exercise you enjoy

This is important when it comes to staying consistent with your workouts. If you are continually doing exercises you don’t enjoy, and they leave you feeling drained physically and emotionally, it’s only going to last so long. You are better off finding exercises that make you feel good, and you can stick to long term, even if it’s not the most intense. Consistent low-intensity exercise will always triumph over inconsistent high-intensity exercise.

2. Be patient when it comes to reaching your physical goals

Remember, results take time. Be easy on yourself.
Nothing good comes easy. Learn to fall in love with the process and the person
you become throughout the journey.

3. Don’t give up the foods you love

I’m a firm believer in never giving up the foods
you love. Find a way to make your favorite foods healthier. If pizza is your
favorite food, don’t give it up. This will leave you feeling deprived. Get
creative and use clean ingredients to make your healthy version.

4. Don’t compete with anyone

This is your life and your journey. No two people
are the same, so you should never compare yourself to others. As long as you
wake up every day and try to be better than you were yesterday, you are on the
right track.

5. Try new things

Step out of your comfort zone. Try a new fitness class with a friend and explore different foods. Grocery shopping based on what’s in season is an easy way to begin experimenting with different foods and exposing yourself to a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Stepping out of your comfort zone and switching things up will keep things interesting and help you stay motivated and inspired to make this way of living a permanent lifestyle.

Physical fitness linked to better brain function

As you change your mindset about fitness and look at it as a lifestyle (not a mere destination) you’ll become happier, lighter, smarter, and look younger than ever. Live your life making excuses for your body, or live your life feeling empowered by it. It’s your call.
