Making good choices for your life leads to good health
Challenging yourself to embark on a life full of purpose is a decision that no one will live to regret. Sure, people say to live your “best life”, but at what cost? (And really, what does that even mean!?) Bad decisions can wreck your life, and living in a “best life” mental state can be damaging to your mental psyche when you’re left picking up the pieces later on down the road once you snap back to reality.
In actuality, living a life filled with good choices nurtures positive outcomes. Overall you can learn to expect great things, rewarding experiences, and a bigger sense of purpose for yourself in this life. Not only should you aspire to do this for yourself, but to radiate positive energy all around you. After all, it’s contagious and you never know when someone else might need it.
Last year I watched the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, and in the film there was a repeated quote in there that Freddie Mercury’s father would say to him that resonated deeply with me: “Good thoughts, good words, good deeds.” If you’ve had an opportunity to see the film, then you know exactly what I mean.
Life with purpose, and most of all, positivity, has the power to carry over a trickle effect onto every aspect of your life. And the same can also be said when it comes to making positive and progressive choices concerning your health.
The age-old saying “we are what we eat” has never been more factual than in this day and age. We know the difference between good and bad foods, and we are also well-aware of the rewards or consequences associated with them.
By actively choosing to live a healthy lifestyle, that’s exactly the point that must be executed properly to achieve its benefits. Being healthy is a lifestyle choice, and by no means a fad. To live a life where you are making good choices for yourself and your health, it’s not a constant “struggle” or a daily battle. Once you make the commitment to yourself to be healthy and stay healthy, the solution is simple: you do it because you feel better from the inside out. And you cannot imagine living the life you had before it.
Sure, everyone has cheat meals or one too many cocktails on occasion, or perhaps skips the gym because they simply “didn’t feel like it” or they were tired. But it’s when these excuses creep in and infiltrate the healthy life you’ve created for yourself that you start to crumble.
This could not be any truer when it comes to the fuel that we put into our body, because good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. We are fortunate to live in a time with so many options that don’t force us to sacrifice indulgences. But to be mindful and present between wants and needs when it comes to your health is what sets some of us above the rest.
The great part about making the wise decision to be a good person and to maintain a healthy lifestyle is that anyone and everyone has the ability to do it. No one is perfect, but everyone can try and be proactive about making themselves a priority.
At Lunchology, we cater to individuals just like you who understand the importance of the fuel that we put into our bodies each day, but may be pressed for time. We want to help you achieve your health goals, that’s why we do what we do each day.
There are a number of factors that play a key role in helping us to find that perfect balance that allows us to achieve good health, but starting with good deeds–especially for ourselves–is the crucial first step to get us there.
