How To Kickstart A Healthy Lifestyle

If you’ve ever attempted to make healthier changes but failed to see favorable results, you’re NOT alone. So many women aspire to live healthier lives but are often confused and overwhelmed with the plethora of information available to them, oftentimes leaving them worse off than when they started. But, I promise it’s a lot easier than you think—and this SkinnyFit guide is going to simplify it for you! 

If you want to start living healthier, these are three simple and effective things you can do to get the ball rolling…

1. Change Your Perspective About Getting Healthy

How we perceive the world around us directly influences everything we do. When we’re faced with a particular challenge, like going on a diet or exercising for the first time, our perspective can directly manipulate the outcome of that challenge–and whether that outcome is positive or negative is entirely up to us.

For example, if you see yourself as one of those people who have very little willpower, you might believe on a subconscious level that you’ll never be able to stick to a healthy diet, so you simply avoid it. Or maybe you’ve been procrastinating signing up for a gym membership because you think that if you start lifting weights, you’re going to get “bulky.” These types of limiting beliefs, or “false truths,” we tell ourselves constrain us, limit our success, and ultimately prevent us from accomplishing the things we want most. If we believe them, we allow those limiting beliefs to influence our perspective in a negative way.

If you truly want to live a health-conscious lifestyle, changing your perspective about the process and adopting a positive mindset can be the determining factor in whether you will reach your goals, or not.

Here are some affirmations to help you gain a positive perspective about getting healthy:

2. Set Clear Goals 

If you’re ready to start living a healthier lifestyle, chances are you already have an idea of what that means to you. Maybe you’re looking to lose weight, reduce your stress levels, or maybe you want to improve your sleep quality. No matter what you’re looking to accomplish on your journey to better health, having a very clear set of goals is crucial to your success. In fact, one of the biggest reasons people fail to see results after they’ve started exercising or eating healthy is because they fail to plan properly. Improper planning can lead to a weight rebound that can trigger a series of yo-yo dieting and can even cause metabolic damage! Who wants that? Not me!

Using the S.M.A.R.T. goals strategy is the most effective way to not only ensure you are setting goals you can actually stick to, but also to ensure that you can maintain your results over the long-term.

3. Determine Your Action Steps

Once you have a clear idea of what your goals are, you’ll need a plan of action. List out everything you need to do (literally) in order to reach your goal. Let’s say you want to lose weight, you’ll want to set your action items around a healthy diet, exercise, accountability, and supplementation. Here’s an example of how you can create a plan of action in order to see your best results…  

How to clean up your diet

Cleaning up your diet is just one of those things that you have to do if you want to lose weight. It’s almost a non-negotiable. After all, weight loss is simply a balance of energy input (food/calories) versus energy output (exercise)—ensuring that your energy input isn’t exceeding your energy output will result in weight loss. Use these action items to help you transition into healthy eating.

How to exercise regularly

Regular exercise is not only helpful for weight loss, but also for reducing stress, improving cardiovascular health, and preventing diseases like heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes. If you want to make exercise a part of your regular routine, here are some action items to get you started.

How to stay accountable

Holding yourself accountable can sometimes feel like the hardest part of your weight loss journey because, let’s face it, saying no to things is hard when you’re on a diet. But, there are some simple ways to develop more self-discipline and willpower and stay committed to your goals. Try some of these accountability techniques to avoid falling into old patterns that can slow your progress. 

How to add supplements to your regime

Supplementation is a key factor in healthy living. However, it’s important to learn which SkinnyFit supplements are best for you and your goals, when to use them, and how to use them properly in order to get the best results. So, let’s go over them in a little more detail, shall we?
