The Goal is Not Size 0 But a Healthier Body
The goal here is not to fit into a specific size but to become the best version of yourself. Being in the best physical shape and health that works best for you. When you attach yourself to a goal and once it’s been achieved, you lose the motivation to work towards your continuous growth. Therefore, it is essential to stick inspiration to the habit of wellbeing.
Often, you’ll see people with goals such as losing 6 pounds, fitting into a smaller size dress, building bulk, and returning to where they started soon after achieving their goal because they couldn’t sustain it.
When it comes to wellbeing, it is a lifestyle, it’s a continuous habit and effort, it’s a commitment to one’s self to do better for themself every day. It doesn’t matter if they pulled an all-nighter or stayed long hours at work. In fact, once that commitment is formed, it becomes their priority, and they avoid such situations that would interfere with their wellbeing.
So here are some tips that can help to form a committed attitude towards your wellbeing:
Commit to the Wellbeing, Not to the Size
When you commit to your wellbeing, you start to choose things that are aligned with a healthy lifestyle and are appropriate for your wellbeing. For example, if you are trying to lose weight, you may go on a diet, starving yourself while craving all the things that got you into that excessive weight. Once you have achieved your ideal weight, you will fall back into your old routine and gain the weight again.
Whereas, if you focus on your wellbeing and having a healthier body, you will automatically start to value your body. You will make choices that resonate with a healthier body. You will choose foods that make you feel good and active instead of eating things that make you feel bloated and lethargic.
Your wellbeing becomes a lifestyle instead of a short-lived goal. Which is incremental, continuous, and consistent.
Focus on Maintaining a Workout Regimen
Doesn’t matter if you are doing intense training or moderate impact exercises. If your workout regime is not regular, it won’t reap any results. Form a habit of working out at least three times every week. Remember, even with consistency, it takes time to see the results, and you perhaps won’t get your desired outcome until the first 60 days. But it is the consistency of your workout regimen that will actually make a difference over the period.
Think about it this way: if you have consistently gone to the gym or engaged in physical activity every 3 days a week, you would work out 156 times in one year. How do you think that will impact your physical health? From where I’m guessing, it would be pretty incredible.
Increase Positive Habits to Reduce Negative Habits
Instead of focusing on getting rid of harmful habits such as drinking, smoking, junk food, and procrastination, focus more on building healthier habits. The more positive practices you engage in, the lesser your negative patterns will become.
Healthier habits include making healthier food choices and engaging in fun yet active recreational activities such as playing sports with friends, hiking, water sports, networking events, and movies. When you fill your schedule with meaningful positive activities, you have less time to spend on activities that are low vibrational.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun or can’t have alcohol if you want to. This just means that you are having fun differently now. You are engaging and connecting with people in a different way, and you are prioritizing your health and staying fit simultaneously.
