The fact is that none of us can get our health completely under control. None of us know what our health might look like in ten years, and of course, what issues we may be genetically or unfortunately predisposed to experiencing. Health is wealth, but it’s never something we can perfectly predict. Anyone promising you otherwise will be selling you snake oil.
However, it is important to consider that to a large extent, depending on your levels of wellness and the ability to make executive decisions that help assuage issues or promote a good lifestyle, you do get to have a say. For this reason, getting your health under control is often much easier to do if we know what little victories we can find, and how to win them sustainably in the long term.
With this, we do have an approximation of what we may consider control. It’s how some people have managed to lose 150lb over the course of a few years, and why those with unfortunate health issues still manage to squeeze the best quality of life they can. How do they do this? Let’s discuss this below:
Try & Substitute Your Bad Habits
Bad habits can take positive progress and completely overcome it. Anyone who has dieted all week only to drink a couple of bottles of wine and absolutely demolish a charcuterie board at the weekend knows that struggle. This is why it’s good to try and work on those bad habits to begin with, such as by making sure you drink plenty of water in the evenings and switching out the alcohol for fruit teas, or using CBD patches to help with anxiety. Over time, it can help you enact a new normal.
Read Into The Health Topic & Become Fascinated
Personal health improvements and wellness care are fascinating topics to consider. Trying different skincare products, reading into how different ingredients help your skin and the history behind them (aloe vera, for example, is fascinating), will help you feel more interested about learning; and you may gain some great advice or draw your own excellent conclusions from that. In other words, don’t think of personal healthcare as a chore, when it can also be a fun exercise you enjoy doing. The best example? Trying all new healthy cuisine in the kitchen.
Take The Proper Route
Shortcuts and simple pathways never really lead to good outcomes, only constant repetitions of the same bad practice. For that reason, instead of taking weight loss pills or yo-yo dieting, eating a simple balanced diet with 500 calories less than your maintenance can be the best way to make consistent progress that lasts. You’ll probably think the same way over time, enjoying your path forward in the best possible sense.
With this advice, we’re certain that you’ll get your health under control, as much as is possible, by focusing on sustainability and enjoyment instead of a dour, sombre, duty that you don’t really wish to keep up with. It’s all about that forward progress.
