Keep your body healthy! It’s your home where you have to live in.
Today, people are so busy running from one place to another, having stressful days, sitting for hours at the desk, grabbing something to eat on their way and ignoring the most important thing. Health! Take care of your body every single day.
You have this body to live in for the rest of your life so you better keep it healthy. If you are healthy you can do everything you want. Think of it this way…imagine your body as a crystal ball. Once it has a scratch, a crack or it’s broken there’s no way back!
An unhealthy body has limited actions. Sure, our body is an amazing thing and can heal itself. Like a small injury.
But, if you don’t pay attention to that injury it may develop into a serious problem that your body won’t be able to heal by itself. And even if it does you may remain with problems for the rest of your life.
“God gave me a great body and it’s my duty to take care of my physical temple” – Jean-Claude Van Damme
This is one of my favorite quotes …and you know why? Because Van Damme is right. You have this body you live in and it’s up to you to take care of it. And exercising it’s a good way to do it.
Want to know how exercise can make you better, happier and healthier? Keep reading and you’ll find out.
Listen To Your Body
Treat your body with care, listen to it, don’t neglect it. Even if it’s just a minor pain. Untreated it may become worse…like when you’re having a tooth ache. Don’t wait until the pain becomes unbearable thinking it will go away. You’ll end up losing your tooth.
Usually when something hurts, something in your body went wrong and the pain it’s the way your body communicates with you. So pay attention to what your body is telling you.
Improve Your Mood And Build Self-esteem
Exercising is an amazing way to get your body healthy. Hard to believe but this can make you succeed in your every day challenges. You’ll improve the quality of your life, your image, your whole body will benefit.
Working out not only shapes and designs your body making it look awesome…but also improves your mood your health and your attitude. It will improve your heart, your mobility, boost your immune system, give you more energy and it will make your whole life better. So how about some gym time?
I know it’s not easy and there are excuses all the time. But if you don’t make time for yourself today when will you? When it will be too late? There are so many types of sports and exercising and you are free to choose whatever makes you happy.
Too many people have a sedentary life. Sitting for hours at the office and at home it’s not good for your health. I hope the reasons above will motivate you to lead an active life. There are so many benefits so why not enjoy them?
If you don’t like going to the gym you can work out in the comfort of your home or outside…whatever suits you. Just make sure you have the proper equipment and you do the exercises the right way.
Excess body weight can put your health at risk. For example…it puts a lot of stress on your joints and heart. But you know this don’t you? You hear it everywhere.
So you want to hit the gym? Keep in mind that just exercising without a proper diet won’t get you results.
Lots of people see the word “diet” as something scary to do for a while. A good diet to me means healthy eating. And that’s a way of life not just something for a few weeks.
Exercising combined with healthy eating will improve your immune system and your ability to move. It will keep your heart in shape, make bones, joints and muscles stronger.
Eating healthy and working out will also boost your mental health and keep diseases away.
In a word it will make you HEALTHIER.
Work That Stress Away
Health is necessary for your body to function properly. To have a healthy body you need to have a healthy lifestyle and that may require some changes in your life so it’s important to have your priorities straight. Put your health on the first place not other things because you won’t be able to fully enjoy those things with a bad health.
Mental health is also very important and has a big impact on every aspect of your life including your physical health. We all know that stress can give stomach problems for example.
Work out and get that stress away! You’ll sleep better, feel better, look better! A fit body will make you feel stronger and confident. Don’t let stress ruin your life.
Today it’s easy to get lost and forget to really live. Give yourself some free time. Learn to enjoy every day and make the best of it.
You can’t really be happy and enjoy life if you’re not healthy. We tend to forget about us, about our body, our health and why? You have the power to make things better!
Exercising, eating healthy and making the necessary changes for a better life won’t be easy… it requires time, dedication and willpower. But the results will be awesome. So are you ready for a better and healthier you?
Keep your mind and body healthy. Eat properly, drink water, get enough sleep, exercise and let your body rest when it needs to. Remember prevention is better than cure !
Don’t push it over the limit thinking it won’t happen to you.
One more thing to keep in mind…make sure you ask your doctor before starting any form of exercising, especially if you know you have or had some health problems.
Thanks for the great reminders in taking care of our precious bodies. I have to admit that some days I do better than others!
I wonder why everything else is more important than our health? I admire people who seem to get the balance right.
Good question ! From my experience, I think people are not aware of the importance of a healthy body until they have a problem. Even if you are healthy you need to take care of your body to keep it that way.
Some don’t even know how to take care of it. They don’t know what it’s good or bad or too much. When you’re healthy, you don’t worry about your body and you think it will never happen to you. Some people just don’t care.
Thing is…many don’t know this, especially when you’re young. So an education on health is very important 🙂 What do you think?
My obstacle is myself, I know what healthy eating and a balanced lifestyle looks like, however my will power to make healthy choices especially in winter is limited 🙁
I keep on telling this to all my colleagues. Unfortunately most of them believe life is meaningless if they cannot eat whatever their favourite items. Wish to forward this to some of them to who my advice sounds crazy.
Some people have the wrong idea about living life to the fullest. I totally agree with the idea to live and enjoy each day as much as you can, but destroying your health by making excesses isn’t a good idea. One thing I learned is that you can’t help someone who doesn’t want to be helped.
Excellent post Cristina. The first step to a happy life is a healthy life. To me, health is the most important aspect of our lives. Without it, we can’t enjoy any of what life has to offer us — money, love, friendship, success, etc. It’s also one of the very few things that money cannot buy.
I’m glad you think this way ! I wish you a wonderful weekend 🙂
This is good stuff. sometimes we forget the simple things “taking care of your body”.
Note to self: DO what Cristina said!!!
I’ve been a bit off track this week so this is a really good reminder. It’s what I needed to get back into the right mindset. Thanks 🙂
Great writing… a healthy mind and body are as important as long as we live on the earth.
Very important things in this post.. you need to listen to your body – thanks for posting!
