Create Healthy Habits To Make You Feel Better Inside & Out

Friday, April 24 2015 10:01 AM

This article is directed to those that have just started taking care of themselves and are trying to create a healthy lifestyle.

Since I have been involved in the fitness industry I often meet people that lack healthy habits and they’re not achieving the results they want because of it. The majority of people are absorbed by stress and lack of time, lack of time to eat, taking care of themselves, etc. If this is your case, you have come to the right place. I can work with you to find a solution, it is never too late.

From my point of view, the ideal is to acquire healthy habits that help you in your day to day life. Perhaps many of you already have some of these habits incorporated in your lifestyle, but for those that do not, take notes!

Key recommendations are:

Start by being consistent at the gym
Three days are enough to notice changes in a short period of time. Your strength, flexibility and energy levels will improve if you remain consistent and these changes will start showing faster than you think…

Drink 8 to 10 oz. glasses of water a day
You will notice the difference right away. Being well hydrated is essential for our body.

Eat 5-6 smaller meals throughout the day
Too often we meet people that do not eat breakfast and can go the entire day with only eating 1-2 meals. When they ask us for dietary advice, the first thing we tell them is to start by eating breakfast. We do not recommend drastic changes. Everything should be a progression. We find it to be easier for people to change their habits slowly and they tend to maintain it for longer.

Find a workout partner
The simple fact of being with someone, causes us to miss less days of training and have more motivation at the gym.

Stretching is essential
The more flexible you are the less likely you will injure yourself at the gym or through day to day activity.

If you miss a day at the gym it’s not the end of the world
Don’t let guilt get the best of you and cause you to miss consecutive days. This tends to effect women more than men. If you miss a day simply get back on track the next day.

Search for exercises that you enjoy
The time in the gym has to be enjoyable, because if you don’t have fun training you will lose motivation.

Plan out your training days
When you have a plan you are more likely to succeed. Working out at least three to four days a week.

Lose the fear of asking questions and advice
Personal trainers are a great option if you don’t know your way around a gym.

REMEMBER!! When building healthy habits it takes time and in many instances it is necessary to use the help of a professional (coach, nutritionist, personal trainer…) Once these habits have been created they will become a part of who you are.… don’t you think it’s worth a try?

Start little by little and ask for help whenever you need it. You’ll see how fast the results will come. What are you waiting for? Take the first step!!!!
