5 Habits of the Fit-Minded
Being Fit is Acting Fit -
Being fit is all about the lifestyle habits we make and not the quick fixes we take, so let’s take a glimpse at the habits that "fit" people have. These following five habits are typically held by successfully fit people…let’s see if you could apply some to your own life.
1. They See Each Day with New Perspective
Fail to meet your fitness goals today? Move on. Do NOT waste energy on what “was” and what you cannot change. Tomorrow is another day to make a plan to make smarter decisions. When you wake up, reorient yourself to your fitness goals without a single comment beating yourself about whatever mistakes you made in the past. After all, you can’t change what you did yesterday. All you can control is right now. So get to it taking the next action step.
2. They Find Ways around their Excuses
If you’ve ever wondered why you can’t quite get to the fitness level you are desiring - it may be your tendency to cave to pressure. Your own thoughts or those actions of others around you. Notice if the pressure is self-induced. Fit minded people DO NOT give into excuses for why they shouldn’t exercise. I am tired. I don’y have the time. I will do it tomorrow - Quite the contrary. They are continually finding reasons WHY THEY SHOULD hit the gym and find pockets of time to do it—even if the trip to the gym is shorter than usual.
3. They Eat and Sleep Well
Study after study has shown the benefit of eating whole, unprocessed foods. It provides energy and strength, helps you feel full throughout the day, and makes your time in the gym as fruitful as possible. Whole food is absorbed better by the body. The body KNOWS what to do with real food - where as it must guess what to do with processed chemical laden food - and typically sees fake food as a toxin. Sleep is also critical. Getting good sleep is equally as important, as it keeps all your bodily systems in rhythm. Sleep is when our body expands energy healing and replenishing itself. Put these two fit activities together and you’re well on your way to optimal fitness.
4. They TRACK Progress <——— GAME CHANGER ALERT
For some, keeping tabs on health progress is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Once you get into the routine, however, you will become a believer in the power of tracking your progress. Tracking serves to both reward and motivate you, as you see that the countless hours in the gym and smart food choices lead to a healthier weight and greater strength—a.k.a. better overall fitness and health.
