What exactly is a healthy lifestyle?
Healthy Lifestyle is a way of life that incorporates regular exercise and healthy nutrition to improve overall well being. It isn’t about achieving peak performance or reaching elite-level athlete status. It’s an approachable, maintainable way of life centered on holistic fitness. It’s open to anyone – men and women, young and old.
From improving confidence in helping to reduce stress, Healthy and Active Lifestyle philosophy is about inspiring you to take the leap and become your best self. A healthy body and mind provide one with a strong sense of self-confidence and creativity to achieve a successful life.
A healthy lifestyle provides one with a healthy mind that in turn creates a positive community, which supports and empowers everyone, no matter what their fitness level or goals are.
People often shy away when they hear the term ‘healthy active lifestyle’ as they imagine having to dedicate hours to extreme workouts. While that certainly counts, a healthy active lifestyle is simply one that contributes positively to your physical and mental wellbeing. It is not as hard as it sounds. Small changes to your daily life and diet can add up to big results in the long term.
Whether you are already fit or just starting out on your fitness journey, you can live a healthier and more active lifestyle.
Improved Work/Life Productivity
Studies have found that after exercise, our brain is more active and this makes it easier for us to learn and retain information. Taking a break for activity when you feel drained will also improve your focus and productivity.
When you make a conscious effort to improve yourself by being more active, your confidence gets a boost. Even better, your new positive approach can convince those around you to also make a positive change.
High levels of stress can lead to weight gain and make losing weight more difficult, so finding time for activity has never been so important. Stress also often causes over-eating, which can lead to weight gain. This, in turn, can increase stress, contributing to the vicious cycle.
Physical activity provides an excellent vent to bust off the stress and focus onto a goal towards self-improvement.
Improved Sense of Well Being and a Higher level of Happiness
Being active promotes the release of endorphins in your body similar to those that are released when we eat foods such as chocolate.
