Health Is Wealth
Remember the saying “Health is Wealth”? This has never been far from the truth. Imagine you have lots of wealth, good circle of friends, happy family, good job but if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness, having all these abundance will mean nothing.
NOTHING at all.
Instead, you will have to spend your time (and money) for doctor’s consultation, hospitalization, medication, countless follow-up checks, restricted diet, loss of energy and strength.
Do you want this? What measures can you take to prevent yourself from falling ill or contracting terminal illness? Is there a way?
The answer is YES.
There are 2 paths in your eating habits:
- You give in to instant gratification and shorten your lifespan.
- You are mindful of your own food choices and live a long, healthy life.
The choice is yours.
Start by making today healthier than yesterday!
But… How do you do that?
The very first step to make a change is to set achievable goals – Goals that will gradually change your health status and overall lifestyle into a better and healthier one.
- Do you want to skip sugar from now onwards?
- Avoid drinking caffeinated drinks in the morning?
- Avoid junk food such as chips, crackers or biscuits?
- Or start tracking your daily calorie intake?
It doesn’t matter what your goals are, write them out for clarity and take massive action!
You will see and feel the difference once you start working on achieving these goals in a timely manner.
Notice this awesome feeling and enjoy the process! Cultivating this proper mindset will fuel your willpower to stay on track and also significantly improve your mood on a daily basis.
Thus, it is extremely essential that you enjoy the process while you constantly practice your new eating habits. This is an incredible way to reward yourself! – And here lies the Secret to keep a habit.
Frequently imagine yourself in your dream body because it can radically boost your self-esteem. If you look at people who are struggling with eating disorders, for example anorexia (refuse to eat) and bulimia nervosa (binge eating), you will notice that the mental pattern falls into the same category, which is having a false self-belief – thinking that they are not good enough.
Anorexics look in the mirror and see a fat person. They think that they’re fat even though their body figure is extremely under-weight or even obviously boney.
It is a mental illness that leads an individual to problematic eating disorder that harms one’s overall health and lifestyle. It can be life-threatening as well.
Therefore, it is important to have a positive mindset about your own body and how you see yourself.
