Have you ever wondered what a health conscious person did differently than us ? Well, I did. And here are some of the things I noticed.

health concious

  1. THEY DRINK WATER : This is the first thing someone who cares about their health tells me. It is very annoying but I have experienced it work. When I drink 6 to 7 glasses of water everyday, my skin is clear as the  sky.
  2. THEY GROCERY SHOP WITH FULL APPETITE: One of the biggest mistakes people do is go grocery shopping when they are hungry. They end up buying instant food that they will not have to cook, including junk food which ends up in fat on their bodies.
  3. THEY LIKE BEING HEALTHY : You cannot force yourself to do something you do not want to. If they are vegetarian, it is because they like it. And it is easier to do things that you like. So develop your interest in that one activity that involves moving your muscles.
  4. THEY HAVE A POSITIVE OUTLOOK ON LIFE : Healthy minds reside in a healthy body. That also means believing that things will work out even if you have lost your job or your loved one is suffering from Leukemia. You will get a better job or due to his disease, he will get to see all his family together.
  5. THEY INDULGE FROM TIME TO TIME : Being health conscious does not mean eating soy free food and Zucchini noodles. They like Pizza, Chocolate, Red Velvet Cake, Beef Burgers etc and have them from time to time. And when they do indulge, they make sure to spend some extra time on the treadmill or in the pool.
  6. THEY FOLLOW A ROUTINE : It is a cliché but routines help you get fit. That means, getting at least 8 hours of sleep at night, getting up on time and eating a good breakfast. That does not mean that you have to follow it precisely. Wake up whenever you want on the weekends to assure your wild side.
  7. THEY HAVE LIKE MINDED FRIENDS : How many times have you bought new clothes just because your friends were buying them as well ? Or read a book they recommended ? When you have friends whose priorities and interests are similar to yours, it is easier for you to do something. A working out boyfriend will motivate you to get of bed and for a run with him.
  8. THEY DO NOT DIET : A lot of people have this misconception that health has a lot to do with diet. It actually has to do with a great body. People with good health do not necessarily follow the latest diet or the juice cleanse. They eat a lot but they eat clean. They also up there amino acid intake if they want build strong muscles.

You do not have to follow all of this. Start by taking a step forward. Do that one thing which makes you a little bit more healthy.
