What Is A Health Lifestyle And Should It Be A Priority?

A health lifestyle is a living, and not just in an abstract sense. For example, a wellness program might include: getting enough sleep, exercising enough, avoiding high sugar and salt, avoiding high-fat or processed foods and consuming healthy fats. It would be important to find the best lifestyle to suit your overall health needs.

A health lifestyle is a living, and not just in an abstract sense. While it’s difficult to do a thorough analysis of the specific lifestyle that would have provided healthful results for me, I will share a few things that helped me in my pursuit of wellness. First, I was a heavy sleeper in high school, and even to this day continue to be. I had a hard time transitioning from a time in school where it’s just me, three or four older kids, and a lot of noise to a time where I could attend more classes when I wanted and get homework done less. I was very fortunate to have had a great teacher at the time who encouraged my intellectual growth and gave me space and direction. Even though I worked very hard, the classes often included many of my classmates and some even shared my class with each other. I was often bored, but that boredom was the only way I could learn. By the end of the year, I was ready for another academic challenge after my first college class. After graduating, I felt like I had to do something in order to keep my mind sharp. Although I had been a very active boy, I had only participated in a few sports my entire life. I had tried baseball, cheerleading, dancing and marching band. Even though I had a great attitude, I didn’t really enjoy them all as much as running, lifting and performing.

This is the one thing that would keep me accountable for my health even if it wasn’t always a priority. In order to stay on schedule when starting my journey towards healthy living, I used a journal to keep track of things that were important and I felt were things I was passionate about to improve my habits. Although I found myself spending more time on other things I did not enjoy, the journal helped me stay on track. I often found that I really enjoyed writing in my journal, the way that writing about something brings me out of my comfort zone and into the mind of the journal. While I was in college, I had a professor in chemistry that became my mentor. He often encouraged me to spend time outdoors, to spend time in nature, and to enjoy the joy of having fun. While I enjoyed the physical benefits of having an outdoor environment, I was also curious about what chemicals and other toxins were produced by living or breathing in the air all day long. While I did not always love nature and the feeling of not being completely in control of my environment, I definitely learned the value of being in an enviromental environment when learning about health. As I continued working towards a college degree, my curiosity and work ethic helped me focus on improving my health. I had gotten a better job so I was able to spend more time outdoors in general, and that’s when I started working on fitness, and what would become my nutrition. I did the best I could to understand nutrition and how I should make an impact while dieting. I was not so good at weighing meals carefully, but I felt that by dieting I could not only lose weight, but I could also have a noticeable, positive impact on my health. In college, I didn’t have time for a full time job but I had time for something that I loved, studying and working out. Even though I spent the few hours that I could in the gym, I found a good balance in what I would need to maintain weight and how I wanted to maintain my lifestyle. Although it may not have been the most productive or fun way of life, I found that it gave me the opportunity to meet new people, and explore new places while maintaining my health.

As I started my journey towards a healthier lifestyle, it was my passion that became my driving force. I wasn’t so much driven by money as I was driven by the desire to live more healthy. I had been successful in my career so far and was determined to find a job that could help me achieve my greatest dreams, but I believed that I just didn’t have the time to make the necessary gains that I needed to go further. I wasn’t even sure that I had what it took to be a leader of an organization. I didn’t feel like an achiever or leader. I just wanted to eat, sleep, and exercise without all of the complications that I was having to deal with. I wanted to make the most out of all I had to offer.

Although I had taken some time off from school to work on my business and my fitness, I had always been the only adult in the household.
