So let’s crack on, not too much chit-chat and let me show you a what are the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for you!

So first, what is a healthy lifestyle?

As an ex-professional athlete, myself my definition of a healthy lifestyle is very simple: working on your health well-being every day it’s a lifestyle which includes: Eating healthy and regular exercise.

I also must say it’s not a 1-day thing, it’s a lifestyle.

By eating healthy, exercising regularly you also feel good. Let’s be honest it feels good looking in the mirror and looking very fit which is great for your self-image which is great for your mental state, which is very important because there is where everything starts between your ears.

Exercise and healthy eating 

I have personally exercised my whole life as a little kid gymnastics was my favourite school lessons loved it with a passion? just the feeling of running around, competing with others, winning competitions made my whole day good again. Whatever happened when I was sporting I always felt good for those minutes the adrenalin rush was pumping through my whole body.
Running, for example, I don’t know exactly when it happens, but after you have a runner for a while you just go in a high called endorphin and I can tell you that is a really good feeling. Is that, I can conquer the whole world feeling, its really good try it if you haven’t yet.

Why should you make it your goal to live a healthy lifestyle? 

Why? That’s a very important question why but it’s also the question which will help you when you go through some tough times and believe me they will come when you make that decision to live a healthy lifestyle.
Those MacDonald’s commercial will start to pop up from everywhere. Those Krispy creams store will pop up from everywhere. Those KFC’s… you get my point?
With every goal in life, I would suggest to get yourself a piece of paper grab a pen and start to write down 10 reasons why you want to start to live a healthy lifestyle.

For example:

So, I can be on this earth longer to spend with my loved ones
So, I can look better and have a better self-esteem
So, I can feel more energetic in life
So, I can reduce the chance of getting some health issues

And the list goes on, believe it me when those hard times come to grab yourself that paper or document and start reading your why’s it will help

So, there you have it people the end?
