We live in a world, where there is so much information on the internet. A person who is only just starting to live a healthy lifestyle can easily feel overwhelmed and frustrated. Yes, it seems like we are only going to contribute to that big pile of information that is already out there. Some might take it that way, but we have put together 4 crucial tips and advice that everyone should realise.
These people who do not exactly know where or how to start, will then spend money on some diet pills and other stuff that will probably not work. This advice you’re about to read is simple, easy to understand and will not cost you any money.
To know your goal and how to achieve it might seem super easy, but a lot of people struggle with it. Having a six-pack of the best glutes does not mean that a person is fit or healthy. Being healthy and fit does not just come down to physical appearance, but to your happy inner-self as well. It is okay to want to look a certain way, but it is important to not take it to an extreme. The goal can be big and life-changing, but do not lose your mind in it. Make sure you remind yourself what you’re doing and why. Write it down to your phone, on a piece of paper, put it on the fridge. That way you will always be reminded.
Everyone’s body is different
And not just body, everyone’s life is different. We are working different jobs, studying, have different schedules and priorities. There is no one correct way to achieve your goals. Metabolism can affect how your body looks and reacts to certain foods. Everybody needs different amount of calories to lose or gain weight. Experimenting is the best way to get to know your body followed by applying what you’ve learned. You might like intermittent fasting, not eating till the afternoon and then having all the meals later. Your schedule might not allow anything else. Or you like having your meals evenly divided throughout the day. Do what works for you and only you. Do not look at others. Just because it works for them, doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you.
How much time you have
Yes, it is true that each and every one of us has the same amount of hours in the day. But, we are all different, we work different jobs, lead a busy life, have kids, there are so many factors. Sometimes after a 12 hour work shift, you just cannot be bothered to go to the gym and then wake up in a few hours and do it all again. And we are here to tell you, you don’t have to! Go when you have the time and energy and your training will be so much better. Plus your body will appreciate it more. But do not use your busy life as an excuse. Sometimes you know you should go and you have the energy left, but you just want to relax for the rest of the day and you don’t get it done. That’s called laziness and no discipline. We have to push ourselves out of limits.
Divide your day into small pieces, you’ll see what you’re doing and where you can fit your gym session in and when to eat. It all comes down to your time management and organisational skills. To live a healthy lifestyle does not have to be dreading and hard.
Another major factor is training. We all prefer a different type of exercising, intensity, how many days we can train. Again, there is no right way to do it. If you’re only getting into this new healthy lifestyle, do not set your goals and expectations high. You probably won’t train 6 times a week straight away. If you do, you are more likely to quit way earlier. You might have seen someone doing a certain type of training, you like it by the look of it and the results the person has achieved. Well, you might hate it. You have to try and find what works for you. You need to enjoy it in order to stick with it!
There is no right or wrong way to live a healthy lifestyle. It is different for every individual. It only comes down to what you enjoy and what works for YOU.
We hope this article will help you in realising that there are so many factors, which have an impact on your healthy lifestyle. You don’t have to train 7 times a week and eat a meal every 2 hours. Find what works for YOU.
There are also ways how to make a healthy lifestyle a little bit easier and those are supplements. No time to eat? Have a protein shake. Creatine will help you build strength. Zero energy? Pre-workout will give you that instant pump. A healthy lifestyle also means taking care of your body internally. We have a large selection of vitamins and minerals that will do the job.
