Small Steps to Big Changes
We all want a body that we love right? That is the goal of many people’s health changes, they want to look better, they want to feel better and they want to function better for as long as they can. We’re supposed to love ourselves and our bodies, right? However, most people don’t know what the first steps to better health should be and even where to begin. This not knowing “how” to do what is necessary to really be healthy is sometimes so daunting that people choose to do nothing and make no sustainable changes that result in anything that even remotely resembles health.
The Battle Is Real
Face it folks, we are in a real battle over our waistlines and our bodies and our health overall. Fewer and fewer adults in America are at or even near normal body weight, and many of those that have “normal” weight have a poor body composition and they have a skewed muscle to fat ratio that makes them even more susceptible to the biggest killers including heart attack, diabetes, other cardiovascular disease, cancer, infection, thyroid and hormone problems and early death. We are in a sickness spiral in America.
Many people need to get a grip on their health and do it quick or the damage may be irreversible. Don’t be a statistic. You can change your life. You can take control. You are the master of your destiny and understanding that it just takes a series of very small steps to make huge changes in how you look and how you feel and function. Exercise doesn’t have to be hard. Just walk farther, move more, stretch, use your body as much as you can without hurting yourself. If you can start to move again, you will get the ball rolling and small amounts of daily exercise will begin to show you results over time. And most importantly get a coach! Our therapists and trainer can show you how to move and not injure yourself.
Small Changes Make A Difference
Small changes in your kitchen can have a huge impact. NO MORE SODA can change your life! Simply taking a few highly processed fat and sugar laden foods out of your diet and replacing them with real, whole fresh foods can benefit you in a matter of days, and over time, your gut and every part of your body will thank you for making the small step away from processed foods.
Small changes in your exercise and food habits, like always preparing meals at the same time and always designating time for exercise at the same time every day can begin to program you to make small changes grow into bigger and bigger achievements. If you can get to where you are walking two miles per day, you can reduce the risk of dying from all diseases by almost 50%! Think of the time you will have to spend with your children and grandchildren!
Simply replacing all of your fluids with water can have a profound impact on hair, skin, fingernails, wrinkles and fat loss. Simply improving your mineral balance in your body can get you feeling more flexible, less pain and better sleep. Simply balancing your hormones can get you losing weight, feeling younger and improving muscle. The changes do not have to be drastic to have a profound impact.
Getting your pain under control and fixing your posture can dramatically improve the quality of your life and as your posture improves, you’ll look and feel younger and stronger.
