If you’ve ever heard the term fit and finish, you probably never thought about where it came from. It’s from the automotive industry and describes how the parts fit together and how the final finish looks. It’s been used to describe people who are living a healthier lifestyle and with good reason. When you’re living a healthy lifestyle, the lumps and bumps of overweight disappear. Your body runs smoother and you’re just healthier. There are fewer injuries and illnesses. You look and feel better.
Your body runs better when you eat healthy and exercise regularly.
Not only does healthy eating give you a lower risk of serious conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and even cancer, it also boosts your energy level. You’ll have more energy to get things done and the flexibility and strength to avoid injury from muscle pulls and tears. Building muscle tissue can also help prevent joint injury and healthy eating can help rebuild healthy cells. Both boost immunity.
Adopting healthy habits will help you look better.
Are you tired of pants that you can barely zip up or looking lumpy and frumpy in form fitting clothes. A healthy lifestyle will make you fit with a great finished appearance. Clothing looks better on you. That slim trim appearance is more appealing, especially to you. You’ll feel more attractive and feeling more attractive is really what makes you attractive, since people see you as you see yourself. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look your best.
No matter why you want to get healthier, starting it is the toughest part.
Newton had it right when he stated that a body at rest will remain at rest. However, the next part of the First Law of Motion adds…unless an outside force acts on it. You don’t have to wait for an outside force, like a doctor telling you that you have to get fitter for your health. You can become your own driving force to reinvent yourself if you’re out of shape. The new you can be your own outside force to push yourself to success.
- You can get into shape by tackling it head on and making all changes at once or do it slowly, making smaller changes until they become habit. It’s all up to you how you do it, just do it.
- Eating healthier doesn’t have to be a chore. In fact, you might actually find you enjoy this new type of eating. You don’t have to give up foods you love. Just eat them far less frequently and remember portion control.
- If you aren’t ready for a formal exercise program, just increase the amount of activity you get. If you’re sitting and watching television, get up during commercials and do a few jumping jacks or other exercises.
- You’ll be amazed at how little it costs to eat healthier. In fact, you might even save money and even time. It takes planning, but it’s well worth it.
