You’ve read hundreds of articles on superfoods, supplements and the benefits of the perfect workout.
Hungry for more information and motivation, you search the Internet for that one magic cure that will fix your health problems.
But the sad truth is: you’ll never find it.
Your health is the end result of complex, dynamic interactions between your body, mind and surroundings. Practicing yoga or drinking green smoothies can definitely boost your wellbeing, but there isn’t one single thing that will restore that precious balance on its own. Unlike some health guru’s may tell you, healing yourself or ‘leveling up‘ your health requires more than munching on kale chips or trying that special meditation technique. It’s about developing your own routine of timeless health habits, having loving relationships, pursuing meaningful goals and having fun.
Consistently changing your lifestyle, one small habit at a time, will slowly lead to a fitter body, healthier weight and happier mind. It won’t happen overnight. True, lasting change takes time.
But in order to create those lasting changes, you need to step away from the computer and make things happen.
What is the one small habit that you can start, stop or change doing today that will impact the quality of your life the most?
You already know the answer to that question.
Whether it’s swapping your cup of coffee for green tea, going for a short walk after dinner, making an appointment for a medical check-up or eating more vegetables during the day, you just have to do it. Today.
Not tomorrow. Not next Monday. Today.
It isn’t an instant, magic cure. But gradually adding healthy habits to your daily routine will change your life over time.
So what will you do today to start feeling healthier and happier? Share it in the comments – and then hurry up and go do it!
