There is a simple tip that’s very important for living a healthy lifestyle for the long term. The tip I’m referring to is enjoying yourself! You must have fun when you’re building your new lifestyle, because if you’re having fun, you’ll keep building better and stronger habits that constantly improve your health.
I have 3 things that you must do if you want to have fun and enjoy your healthy lifestyle. All 3 of these things should be implemented to see the best results on a consistent basis.
These 3 things I’ll be sharing are important for having success for the long term. I recommend these tips to our clients in our practice every day. These are strategies that we incorporate at Slim Down Smart on a daily basis.
Enjoy The Foods You Eat
This is an important ritual that you should always follow. You should always eat the healthy foods that you like to eat. Eating anything that you don’t enjoy can cause frustration, which is something you’ll want to avoid.
What I tell clients regularly is that you should always eat the foods you enjoy while trying new foods a few times each week. Once you try new foods, you can build up a bigger list of foods that you enjoy, while avoiding the things you didn’t enjoy.
Try a new recipe from the recipes section of Slim Down Smart, or be creative and think of a recipe that you think you and your family may enjoy.
You Do Exercises That You Enjoy
Another important part to having success with your healthy lifestyle is having fun with exercise. Exercise can be exciting and fun because you can customize it to the things you enjoy to do.
Dancing, resistance training, walking, swimming, bike riding, and zumba can be great ways to improve your results while doing exercises that you enjoy.
The combination of following an exercise routine that you enjoy, and the release of endorphins in our brains that make us happy from exercising, you’ll be having lots of fun while improving your health.
You Have A Workout Buddy
Workout buddies can really help you make a dramatic difference in your health. If you work with a family member, spouse, friend, co-worker, or community member within Slim Down Smart, you’ll set yourself up for lot’s of success.
The fun part about working with a buddy is that you can compete and have competitions for who can stay on track or do more healthier things more often.
You can keep track of points if you’re competitive or just have a buddy to talk with so you both stay on route to your ultimate health goals.
