So, one of the most important topics in life for me is health. The most vital habits in life for me must be centered in a healthy lifestyle. Without health you cannot truly enjoy life. Without health you always fear falling ill. Without health you lack energy, you get upset easily, you fall into temptations easily. I have learned throughout my life that if I don’t feel well, or if my immune system is weak, then my mental capacity is weak as well. And when my mental capacity is weak, then I don’t really feel a desire to enjoy life, to start new ventures, to better my relationships, to find new perspectives and become better in general.
And one of the things, or the most important thing, about health is to create passion. So many people follow strict diets, others exercise like crazy, others force themselves to eat something they hate just because others said it. And what about when doctors or friends tell you to follow keto diet, or some particular routine to follow to lose weight?? It can all be overwhelming. And the fact is that many people quit because of this pressure they bring upon themselves. But the truth is that we are all different, our bodies and minds, our genetics and ways we have been taught since childhood are different. So, in order to make it stick, in order to enjoy a new change in lifestyle, you must feel passion for what you eat and do. So, do your own research. Give your body and mind the nutrients it needs based on healthy foods, but healthy foods you do not hate. Taste is very important, so you can desire to eat healthily and not make it a hard chore.
You must wake up each morning and feel good about yourself. I personally do intermittent fasting, which means I do not eat breakfast; I let my stomach clean itself and rest from the prior meal. This rest gives my body and mind an energy boost, my immune system strengthens because my extra fatty tissue, and what my body doesn’t need to store, is converted to cleaner energy. Then I eat lunch and later dinner. Each day I have many fruits. Fruit helps with digestion, and fruits have the benefits my body needs, specially fiber. I just turned 41 years old, so I know how challenging dieting is; and that is why I do not diet. I eat candy, and breads, and pastas, etc. But the trick is to also eat foods that bring all the nutrients your body needs. Because if you only fill your stomach with food, you are not really giving your body and mind the nutrients they need to use energy from fats properly. So, remind yourself to do research on the internet and find the knowledge you need to become healthier.
