Reclaiming Yourself – 3 Healthy Changes You Must Make by Laura Lynn Smith

Abandoning yourself for different things can leave you in a state of meaninglessness. The same are the results when you choose to work with a false-self system where you edit your thoughts and rehearse emotions and perform according to what you feel others expect from you. Hiding your true self or forgetting who you are will leave you more or a robot than a human and nothing good can come out of such a state. When you want to live your life to the fullest, achieve your dreams and be happy, you must be willing to reclaim yourself from the shadow you have become. And just like most changes, it is not that hard to start making a difference in your life. To bounce back to a life that focuses more on who you are, what you want and where you wish to be, there are three areas in life that you should start focusing more on. HEALTHY THINKING Healthy thinking starts by understanding that you are worth so much more than you initially thought. When you love the person you are, there is really nothing that can stop you from achieving your full potential and remaining happy while at it. Appreciate your flaws and weaknesses and improve on those that you can. Let your thoughts always incline on positivity over negativity and you will have an easy way handling even the toughest times in your life. Healthy thinking also entails stopping to worry about what people think about you and fading of the thoughts that people are always judging you and taking everything that happens to you personally. Concentrate your thoughts on what makes you happy and the goals you want to achieve and you will start matching towards personal fulfillment. HEALTHY EATING What you eat determines your appearance, moods and how strong you are to fight infections and diseases that would otherwise steal off the value of your life. To reclaim yourself, therefore you should also take action towards eating healthy. This way, you will be able to maintain a body you are proud of and happy with, remain active and happy and ward off diseases and infections. If you have been worried about your weight, then it should be time to start making healthy eating choices. Eating balanced, what the body needs and just enough is the key to better health and a better you for that matter. HEALTHY LIVING Healthy living touches on so many areas of life from relationships to habits. Drop unhealthy relationships or relationships that drain you and create beneficial ones when you are ready. It is also a very good idea to adopt an exercise program to maintain good health and keep your good moods and energy levels up to get things done. You will also need to have regular health checks, balance your work and leisure as well as drop bad habits that only rob you value of life. In general, you should strive to be a better person than you are to start living healthy. Life is largely dependent on the choices you make and how you work towards achieving goals you have.

Finding Healthy Replacement Foods by Laura Lynn Smith

There are a lot of different fruits that you can start to eat that will be good for your body. When you are trying to be healthier, you want to make sure that you start to replace the foods that are bad for you with the foods that are good for you. Take one food in your diet that is not beneficial for your body and try to replace it with something that is good for you. There are many different beneficial foods that you want to make sure you are aware of when you are looking to be healthier. A kiwi is a great source of vitamin c and it is also available all year around. There are many people that just do not understand how to find the kiwis that are going to taste the best and are at the best stage for purchasing. When you are shopping for the kiwi you want to make sure that when you gently squeeze the fruit it is not mushy. You also want to make sure that the kiwi gives just a little bit so that you know that it will not be too hard. As you are taking the time to understand which kiwis to buy you do not want to buy the fruit that has a wrinkled skin. When you smell the fruit you should also make sure that the fruit smells good rather than smelling weird. If you buy the fruit too soon you can easily ripen it in your home. When you are taking the time to ripen it you want to make sure that you put it in a brown paper bag and leave the bag in a room temperature setting. When you would rather eat lettuce or make yourself a salad you have to make sure that you find the lettuce that will be good for your body. Iceberg lettuce is not going to give you the nutritional value that you should be getting from the vegetable. Instead, you want to make sure that you find the romaine lettuce in your grocery store. The leaves should be crisp and there should not be brown spots on the leaves and it should not be wilting. You also want to make sure that you do not put the vegetable in the refrigerator for more than seven days. When you keep it in the refrigerator for more than a week you will start to see that the leaves will start to wilt. When you are trying to replace fatty foods or other foods that are bad for you with healthy foods make sure you are making good replacements. There are a lot of people that just do not realize which foods they should be eating consistently. Make sure that you expand your tastes and that you are not judgmental towards the new produce. While you are taking the time to find the produce that you are going to like the most you should understand what is good for you and try a wide variety of vegetables. Being healthy is not just about running on a treadmill or working out at a gym, it’s about eating healthy and feeling comfortable with the body that you are in.
