Lifestyle. We mean, we’re sure you’ve heard this term before. Your lifestyle, the lifestyle you live. But what exactly does that mean?
In the simplest form, it is the way in which you live. Lifestyle can be a combination of the people that you surround yourself with, where you live, religion, as well as culture.
According to the World Health Organization, 60% of related factors to individual health and quality of life are correlated with your lifestyle. But unfortunately, millions of people follow an unhealthy lifestyle. Let’s make the switch, here are 3 things you need for a healthy lifestyle:
#1 Support System
It is important to have support that is going to positively reinforce what you want to accomplish. If your spouse, significant other, coworkers, or roommate are not on board, it is going to be so tough.
Think of your WHY, and share it with your support system. Let’s be honest, if someone loves and cares about you, and they know something is important to you and understand the emotion behind what you’re trying to accomplish, they are going to support you.
#2 Strive for progress over perfection
Life happens, things happen and it’s okay. It’s what’s important to strive for with progress is finding the bright spots. Find the things that you are doing well, so that positively reinforces those habits and behaviors, and gives you motivation to continue.
How are you moving better? How’s your mood? How’s your energy level? There’s so many other factors. How are your clothes fitting?
#3 Keep it simple
Ditch this all or nothing mentality.
This is a problem because everything in our culture is instant gratification, many people want to see results yesterday for work that they haven’t even put in yet. It’s not possible when talking about achieving a healthy lifestyle and achieving lasting results.
In order to see lasting results, you really need to slow down and focus on only one thing at a time. Sometimes it’s tough to figure out the one thing you should be focusing on and that is where coaches come in.
