Tips for a Healthy Motivated Lifestyle
Oftentimes it can be hard to keep up with a new workout routine or diet regimen. Some days it may feel like all hope is lost. I am here to tell you that I have those days too, and so has everyone I’ve encountered in my life. But it is not over. Far from it.
Here are a few tips that I and close friends of mine have used in the past (and present) in order to stay motivated and focused on the goal.
Tip #1. Think happy.
It sounds silly, but sometimes silly works. Instead of focusing on what is bad. Focus on what is good, even if it’s small. Imagine how happy you would be at the end of your workout, or the end of your week once you’ve gotten a few of your health goals completed. The mind is a powerful thing. Happiness works!
Tip #2 Look Around You
Who do you look up to in life? Is it your dad? A celebrity? A famous chef? If they have something that you don’t – try and look up or ask them their habits and how they found success. Chances are they’re human just like you and whatever they are doing that is working – it is something that you can do too!
Tip #3 Be Patient
Rome wasn’t built in a day. My high school Geography teacher used to say that all the time. I don’t think I understood exactly what she meant then; but I do now. It means slow down, forgive myself if I happen to mess up or fail at one of my goals. And most of all – be patient. Most of the time it’s not the failure of the goal itself, it’s the time it takes to reach it. Slow down! Realize that you have a good head on your shoulders, think happy and thinks will fall into place sooner or later 🙂
These tips are words that I have lived most of my adult life by, and I know that you can too. If you are patient, mindful, and paying attention to your surroundings – a lot of the *hard* work has already been done for you.
Dr. Nick has been practicing medicine for over 10 years. After finishing his MD he began his residency in Laboratory Medicine where he gained first hand knowledge of some of the effects of dietary supplements. Dr. Nick now specializes in gastrointestinal health, Over the years of vigorous study and in-depth experimenting with a variety of dietary supplements Dr. Nick found that there are few sources of clear, evidence-backed, honest information about what the supplements can help achieve - and what they cannot. There are many companies out there selling promises without providing results.
Dr. Nick's goal is to educate the general public and do his part to help the world get healthy again. The industry needed an honest educated practitioner to reveal the real benefits of specific dietary supplements and to unbiasedly dig into the formulas and companies selling these formulas to reveal the true Pros and Cons of each supplement and to educate the general public about these ingredients found in various dietary supplements. Dr. Nick promoting general health and proper use of nutritional supplements is step one of the goal. In order to get the best effects without wasting time and money, a proper understanding of chemistry and human physiology are critically important. Since not everyone has the time to master these topics, Dr. Nick hopes to help clarify otherwise complicated topics and give the best, clear, evidence-backed input to help each person select the most appropriate supplements.
