Be Happy, Be Healthy!

exercise every day...
...often when people take this to heart they feel like they have to workout daily, but getting some simple exercise in every day does not mean you have to go to the gym daily to be healthy
...there are so many different ways in which you can get in some simple exercise every day, like walking your dog, running a few days a week, and maybe a day of yoga here and there
...make sure to change it up constantly to keep your mind motivated and your body interested
...it's all about what makes you happy if you're not working towards an intense fitness goal, so don't feel like you have to force yourself to run every day because it'll train your mind to think that working out is a pain

eat clean...
...eat as natural as possible, without over analyzing and counting calories
...avoid processed foods as much as you can, and stick to whole grains, vegetables, and legumes/beans as the main components of your diet
...be sure to treat yourself now and then because naturally your body will crave a treat day, and it's not only important to treat yourself, but it's just as important to be able to do it guilt free

be happy & love your body...
...it's important to do the things that make you happy
...stop comparing your self to others, and this includes not only your body but your general lifestyle
...everyone is made to be different, and your body allows you to do the things that make you happy, so make sure you respect it
...a key component that people ignore is stress because we can't always directly control it, however it is a major factor in disrespecting your body
...some stressors are good, like exciting events coming up, but make sure to reduce stress caused by work or school (your body will appreciate it)



Enjoy!
