In fact, healthy living is a long-term commitment, and needs a lot of work from your part. However, there are steps you can take right now that will make today healthier than yesterday and pave the way for healthy living future.
Make appointments with your doctors
The first thing you need to do is catch up on your routine screening and immunizations. After that, once the doctor is looking at the results, take the opportunity to ask him or her any questions you might have. Moreover, being afraid of asking questions will eventually lead you to an unhealthy lifestyle.
Assess your activity
Before doing anything, you need to ask yourself the following questions: How much physical activity do I get in a typical week? How intense is that activity? How much variety do I get in your activity, and how much do I enjoy it? In fact, adults should get at least two and a half hours per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or one hour and 15 minutes per week of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, in addition to muscle-strengthening activities at least two days per week.
Keep a food diary
This is the best tip ever! Not only it will help you eat less, but it will contribute to keeping your ideal weight as well as losing weight if that is he desired thing. All you need to do is write down everything you eat for a day, and make sure that you do not forget the items that you are embarrassed to admit. “The idea is to write it down … without judgment,” says Kathianne Sellers Williams, MEd, RD, LD, a nutritionist, wellness coach, and personal trainer with Cafe Physique in Atlanta. “You can’t change what you’re not aware of or don’t acknowledge.”
