Its great to read all the options in our blog but the solutions probably need some behavioral change. It is so easy to just say to it, but in real life it is never that easy especially as we grow older!
You won’t make a change unless you have a big enough why, something that will motivate you to do what is necessary. It might be:
- You want to be around a lot longer for your children.
- You might want to stay young and fit to play with your grand children
- You might want to look amazing to attract a new partner
- You might already be sick and wanting to get healthy again.
Only you know the why. But without the why, nothing will change or it will be difficult. So spend some time and work out your why.
Also there is a lot of information in this blog. Don’t try changing everything at once. It will be too difficult and you will probably fail. Instead, choose one thing to concentrate on at a time and work on that one thing for a full month. By then you should have turned that into a habit.
You also need to set achievable and realistic goals. You will continue on your program much longer if you have a small goal to achieve.
For example: You may decide you want to get more exercise and take up walking to help you keep fit and lose a bit of weight. If you make your goal to walk at least 5 minutes every second day you are more likely to achieve much more. Once you get your walking shoes on and get out of the house you will feel great and often add more time. But if the goal is to walk for an hour, you will probably just say “I don’t have the time” and do nothing and then you will beat yourself up.
If you achieve your 5 minute goal you have won for the day and you will feel good for yourself. It is about making success easy and then building the habit.
I could write pages and pages about how to change your habits but this is a good start.
You can defy aging, feeling and looking old by following some of these secrets. It all starts with you making a decision that staying healthy for as long as possible is important to you.
I wish you lots of success and please check out our Facebook page where we have an on-going conversation helping us stay and look young.
