Tips for Staying Healthy and Fit
We all know how life can be. We set a goal to work out, or eat better; but then last-minute shopping trips, kids birthday parties or seemingly a million other things always come up.
Although life can be stressful for most individuals, it doesn't mean that you have to skip out on the most important thing - your health.
Ever year, whether it's in the summer or in the start of the new year - people are always trying to "do right" by themselves and their bodies. Perhaps we want to get back to a time in our lives when we were feeling healthy and fit - or maybe you just want to feel a little bit better than you do now.
And the good news is - it's not all over. You can still be on the up and up and not sacrifice your personal life, or your body.
Here are a few tips to stay healthy and fit all year long:
Modifying your diet
Now this doesn't mean you have to survive off cantaloupe and saltines all year round. It doesn't even mean you have to eat fruits and vegetables every single day. But, if you're serious about getting and staying healthy, you should be able to set just one food or diet goal for yourself to either eliminate or add to your diet. Maybe it's nixing the late night chocolate, or maybe its no pancakes for a year.
Whatever it is - get a goal and stick to it. If you fall off, that's OK! Dust yourself off and get back to work!
Mental health is a HUGE thing these days and for good reason. You can't have a healthy body without a healthy mind. After all you mind is what gives you the idea take notice about your body, right?
Throughout the year, different levels in your body can fluctuate and added to the amount of stress you may or may not have - a lot of people have the tendency to lose motivation. Especially when trying new things. Combat this by being mindful about your actions. Write notes to yourself in your phone, or verbally say aloud what your daily or weekly goals are. This can help more than you know.
Once you get the mind on track, the body will soon follow.
So many of these tips can be implemented in any life or routine. Just remember: it does not have to happen all at once. You can take time, you can even "fall off the horse", so to speak; it's just important that you get back on and try again!
You only get one body, why not give it your all?
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.
