If you look in the mirror and like what you see, that makes you feel better about yourself. Feeling healthy and looking healthy makes you more attractive. It’s natural for people to be more drawn to healthy individuals. It happens in the animal community, too. The healthier an animal is, the more potential they have for having a healthy offspring or can provide for basic needs. Of course, a lot more goes into choosing a mate, particularly in humans, but healthy is definitely the new sexy. You can start your journey immediately by starting with small changes.
First decide what changes you want to make and be specific.
I want to look better or I want to be healthier may be what you want, but you have to be more specific in order to find ways to achieve your goal. Your goal has to be more specific and something realistic. Start simple with goals like following a healthy diet and exercising at least a half hour a day.
Our exercise program will be designed specifically for you and your goals.
Maybe you’ve been a couch potato for years and never exercised. When you start by working with Wholly You Fitness, we tailor it to your needs and level of fitness. However, if you’re not ready for a formal workout program, start by becoming more active. Set aside a half hour a day to go for a brisk walk. The good news is that you don’t have to do it all at once. You can get the same benefit from taking three ten-minute walks throughout the day. Another option is to do a ten-minute workout in the morning, walk ten minutes at noon and do another ten minutes of exercise at the end of the day.
Learning to eat healthy is a key component of becoming a healthier you.
Again, our program includes meal plans and helps you learn how to eat healthier. The plans are based on the information you provide, such as food intolerance and food preferences. If you’re not ready for a formal plan, start by making small changes. Cut out food with added sugar first and follow that by replacing processed food with whole foods. You’ll start to notice food tastes better and you’ll feel better.
- Don’t expect to transform your body overnight or see the changes immediately. However, once you start on the road to a healthier lifestyle, you’ll notice how much better you feel in just a few weeks.
- Even if you don’t have the look you want right now, be kind to yourself. Self hate is counterproductive. You need to know you deserve to take care of your body and feed it the healthiest foods.
- Getting adequate sleep is also important. You need eight to nine hours a night. Too little sleep takes a toll on your heart and can cause an imbalance in hormones. It slows the creation of hormones that make you feel full and increases the creation of hormones that make you hungry.
- Getting adequate hydration is also important. You need approximately eight glasses of water a day. Cut out soft drinks, including artificially sweetened ones. Drinking a glass of water before a meal can also help you eat less food.
