Benefits of a Healthy Lifestyle
We are always told “It is important to live a healthy lifestyle”. But for some of us, it’s difficult to understand what a “healthy lifestyle” is. Is it exercise? Is it eating properly? Is it getting enough sleep? Is it a positive attitude? Is it surrounding yourself with people and things you love?
The answer: It is ALL of these things! Here at Maximise Health and Fitness, we are big on all things healthy! We understand that a healthy lifestyle takes balance, determination and support. And we are here to help you all the way! The most important thing you can do when beginning any new journey, is surround yourself with supportive, positive people who want to see you succeed! They will motivate, support and encourage you daily! Healthy living shouldn’t be a chore; you should enjoy it, love it and feel better for it every day – inside and out!
Let’s start with exercise. For many people, this is the hardest and most daunting path on the road to healthy living. “It’s too hard!” “I can’t do it” “I’m not fit enough” “I’m scared”. How many times have you or someone you loved said these words? How many times have you given up before starting? You need to trust in yourself and your trainers/friends at the gym to be there to help you through the tough times! Everyone has to start somewhere, and the first step is walking through the door! Regular exercise has so many health benefits! It can:
- Control weight
- Reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers;
- As well as improve mental health and increase muscle and bone strength!
A good balance between exercise and healthy eating is important. Forget all the fad diets and promised “quick fixes”. Here at Maximise, we are all about helping you to enjoy your food again. A healthy diet should include a variety of healthy, nutritious foods. Just like exercise, healthy eating can help maintain a healthy body weight and decrease your risk of many diet-related chronic diseases. It is also extremely important to drink an adequate amount of water daily to keep you hydrated! We have a whole crew at Maximise Health and Fitness who are fully qualified to help you get your healthy eating on track!
One of the key factors in a healthy lifestyle is sleep! Ensuring you get a good night’s sleep plays a critical role in immune function, metabolism, memory, learning, and other vital functions. When you wake up after a good night’s sleep, you feel ready to take on the world! Sleep helps control body weight issues by regulating the hormones that affect and control your appetite. Not only can sleep help control weight, it also repairs the body, keeps the heart healthy and reduces stress! So turn in early tonight and get ready to feel GREAT tomorrow!
The bottom line in living a healthy lifestyle is to remember to enjoy yourself, find a balance that works for you and your family and remember – one day at a time! The team at Maximise Health and Fitness are always available to support, encourage and motivate you towards your goals! Call today for a free consultation and be on your way to a healthier you!
