“‘If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done” – Thomas Jefferson
This is true in so many areas of your life, including your health. If you want to improve your health and truly live a healthy life, then you have to be open to change. Even more importantly, you need to understand what being healthy really means. When it comes to being healthy, many people assume that if their weight is good, then their health is good. But that is not enough. There is so much more to living a truly healthy life aside from weight. What the scale says is just one factor in the bigger picture. The other areas of your life that also affect your overall wellbeing are:
- How effectively and efficiently your digestive system works
- The strength and resiliency of your immune system
- The health of your kidneys
- Your cholesterol, blood sugar levels, nutrient levels, etc
- Amount of energy you have and how often you feel tired
- The quality of your stress
- How often you are stressed
- And so on this list goes…
If you are looking to make changes to improve your health and whatever you are doing right now isn’t working for you, then you need a new approach. There is always a way, you just have to find it. But most importantly you have to be willing to make changes. Habits need to change whether its around your routine, lifestyle, or diet, you must begin somewhere. It sounds quite harsh and dramatic, but if you take it one step at a time, then its not so overwhelming.
When it comes to making changes, your thoughts as well as actions all play a role. Every part of your daily routine influences your health from the time you wake up and the time you go to bed. And in between as well. Its not just food or exercise changes that often need to be made. Other changes such as bedtime routine, stress management techniques used, or what you do when you eat all matters in the bigger picture.
