Strategies For Success – 2018 Ways To Stay Mentally And Physically Fit
How To Get Healthy And Fit:
In 2018 let’s make an effort to stay mentally and physically fit. After all, this is all in the plan for your Strategies For Success! But how do I do that, you ask?
In the first place, learn to care as much about your mental and physical health as you do about other things you are passionate about. After all, if you are mentally and physically fit, you will have the characteristics needed to be truly successful and be able to plan for success.
Equally important “Love” taking care of yourself just like you “love” other things. Uniquely you are the only you there will ever be. Furthermore physical and mental health depend on each other to make a person whole. Whereas one without the other is only a partially healthy person. Likewise one needs to have a healthy mind and body to be on the road to success.
We all know that exercise is a must for a healthy body. We also need to exercise our minds though. On the other hand, if we truly have a plan for success, we will work on exercising our body and minds. Besides this will aid in your strategies for success.
Any type of exercise for your body that you enjoy and feel that you can safely do is great if it works your muscles and burns fat.
Low impact aerobics, walking, playing your favorite sport or any type of exercise that builds up your metabolism along with building up your muscles including your heart is imperative.
LOW IMPACT AEROBICS
BUILDING UP HEART MUSCLES
After you have exercised, you will feel exhilarated and much happier than if you do not move around. You will be more flexible and it will also help to improve your self-esteem. So keep moving!
Types of Exercises:
There are many types of exercises to do.
Here are a few:
Yoga or Pilates:
Did you know that yoga actually protects your muscles, your spine, your cartilage, and tendons? Additionally stretching your body regularly will help your body be more resilient and help you avoid injuries. Moreover Yoga also usually incorporates some form of meditation. This aids in helping your mental capacity. By the same token calming your mind a couple of times a day will reduce your stress levels too. Of course, this is all a part of your strategies for success.
I have taken part in both of these exercises. Yoga is a mind/body experience developed in Ancient India; whereas, the Pilates exercises were developed in the 20th century by Joseph Pilates. Although Pilates is an exercise that is practiced Worldwide, it is more prevalent in countries such as Canada, the US, and the UK. Pilates can actually improve balance. It can also help to condition your muscles and is much better than not moving or doing any exercises at all!
Namaste and enjoy!
Yoga Or Pilates Are Not For You?
These exercises are not for everyone. But you need to find some type of daily exercises or at least one type of exercise that you can do five times a week. Especially if you have a job where you are sitting a lot at a desk. If so you will develop poor posture, neck, and lower back pain. Try to do an exercise that will rotate your muscles – your hips, knees and ankles, shoulder and spine. Exercises such as lunges or squats are a great way to move these muscles and keep them limber.
GOOD AND BAD BACK POSTURE
I try to do low-intensity aerobics at least five times per week. After working out I feel invigorated, happier and sleep much better. Furthermore, I keep the workouts down to around 30 to 45 minutes almost daily. This way I am burning fat for energy, helping my heart to be healthy; and also aiding in much better sleep.
LOW IMPACT AEROBICS
Confront Mental Issues:
Sometimes we hide our feelings and harbor negativities that can cause mental health problems. We need to confront them and sometimes a person needs help. That is great, that is what counselors are for. They are there to aid in our mental health. Remember positive thinking leads to success!
Listen To Your Body:
Along with proper diet, exercise and mental health you need to give your mind and body enough rest to replenish itself to go on. If your body is telling you to slow down, then slow down and relax and rest your tired muscles and your brain! In reality, these are a few of the secrets of success.
However, if you develop any muscle pains or aches that just linger on and on, see a medical professional. Besides they are there to help you.
Try to take some exercise classes with other people – group exercises with friends or make new friends. Spending time with like-minded people will aid in your self-esteem also. Spend time with people who like you and enjoy the same things you do. Of course, you may not like everything another person likes, but share and try out new things and get acquainted with people who like and accept YOU FOR YOU! This does not mean just sharing with friends on Social Media which is the way many people keep in touch or meet new people these days. You need to get in touch with real live people who you can talk to, exercise with, go out to dinner with, etc., in person. Making friendships with good people will aid in your strategies for success.
FRIENDSHIPS WITH LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE
Try to eat a balance of fruits, vegetables, grains, and proteins. Not only will eating healthfully aid in physical health but it will also improve your mental state. That means you will experience a higher quality of life. It has been proven that eating green leafy vegetables including broccoli, kale, and spinach actually keep you physically and mentally fit. These tips are just some of the ingredients for success. I incorporate a lot of antioxidants into my diet, especially blueberries. Foods high in antioxidants will help you build up your immune system along with sparing your body from damage from illnesses. Limit your alcohol and caffeine intake.
FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Drink Plenty Of Water:
About all that I drink at home is water. Once in awhile, I enjoy a soda when going out to lunch, but water is my main thirst quencher.
Did you know that water will flush out toxins, reduce inflammation, and lubricate your joints? Plus it even supports a healthy metabolism. Then again it can actually help you have better energy, digest your food better and help you function mentally.
If you increase your water intake, it can only help you in your health and energy. Remember WATER is a life source. It is one of the ingredients for success.
Take Care Of Your Body:
A healthy, pleasant-looking person will attract more friends and will help one’s self-esteem. This in all will keep you feeling pleasant about yourself and will help in one’s mental attitude. Furthermore, people will be drawn to your pleasant happy persona.
Keep Life Interesting:
You need to have some challenges or interests that make you happy, keep you going. After all, you want to keep living no matter what your age is. Given that by striving towards goals, you will keep your mind healthy, alert and happy. Keep working on your mental health by constantly learning new things, studying different cultures, and keeping in touch with people.
STUDY CULTURES AROUND THE WORLD
KEEP LEARNING TO KEEP YOU BRAIN FOCUSED
In A Nutshell:
Try keeping a positive happy mental attitude. Try to find something that makes you happy every day. Have some fun!
Don’t try to change yourself or your lifestyle in an instance. It will take time so just keep working at it and you will soon find yourself in a better physical state, with a better frame of mind – healthier and happier.
Keep moving – keep your heart pumping!
Warm up before you start vigorous exercising and do some mild stretching before and after your exercises.
