While there are some things not in our control, living healthy IS within the controllable circle. Everyday we make choices that can help or harm our overall health and well being.
I do believe that in some cases, we, as humans, are like a stray dog who sees something to eat on the other side of the road and dashes in front of a speeding car to get to the other side…
We are so focused on one objective that we do not consider the consequences of our methods to reach that objective.
In this post, I am going to share 6 healthy lifestyle choices that will keep you from running out in front of a speeding vehicle but will still allow you to “cross the road.” Choices that will help you smile and enjoy your life.
#1 Healthy Lifestyle Choices: A Personalized Health Plan
Every person on this planet is different. One health and diet plan make work great for Jim but not for Joe. One exercise strategy may be fabulous for Annie but is actually dangerous for Susan.
We need to use a personalized, customized health, diet and exercise plan that considers many factors:
- activity level
And the other fact is, not every person is able to design their own plan. We all have talents in various areas… While I would never cut it as a CPA, an accountant probably would not have the ability to lay out a complete weight loss plan for a person based on the above factors.
So do you need a plan? I can help!

#2 Healthy Lifestyle Choices: Enjoy The Meal… Social
Life has become like a speeding freight train for many people. Hurry, hurry, hurry… Eat that broccoli because we have to go!
Many families have veered away from the days when we sat down as a family and enjoyed a finely cooked meal.
It is time to find those days again!
When we enjoy the meal and the discussions at the dinner table, stress is lower and our health is better.
You CAN do it… Get your loved ones in on the “Let’s eat and talk together.”
#3 Healthy Lifestyle Choices: Positivity
My grammar checker tells me that isn’t a word… It is now… Positivity!
There is ample research that shows people who maintain a positive attitude no matter what they are surrounded by are healthier.
Make a conscious decision to stay positive. Stay clear of negative influences. Check your words and attitude at all times and you will smile and laugh more.
Positivity = Healthy lifestyle.
#4 Healthy Lifestyle Choices: Keep Moving
It has been the Tara Christopher tagline for quite some time… Keep On Movin!
It may seem like you do, but I bet you could find ways to get up, get out and move more.
I love technology but technology has also made non-movement easier. As a result, there is more obesity and health problems.
Instead of using the remote, get up and change the channel yourself. Tell your Alexa to put you in check when you ask her to turn on the lights…
“Hi Mr Jones, this is Alexa; what can I do for you?”
“Alexa, please turn on the kitchen light so I can get some cake.”
“Mr Jones, please forgive me but NO! Do it yourself because you have to keep moving if you are going to eat chocolate cake.”
Now admit it, you are laughing aren’t you?
Keep On Movin!
#5 Healthy Lifestyle Choices: Drink More H2O
A high percentage of humans do not drink enough water. They instead reach for soda, coffee or other flavored drinks.
We need water and just because those other drinks have water in them, they don’t count. The sugar and other chemicals take away from the benefits the pure water give to your body.
My suggestion is, carry 2 bottles of water with you and make a choice to drink from them at regular intervals. Throughout the day, try to drink at least 6 of those bottles.
#6 Healthy Lifestyle Choices: Try Some Varieties
There are superfoods in every culture on this Earth.
I challenge you to try some fruits or vegetables you have never tried. Just do a search online on how to prepare or eat them.
- Long beans
Don’t know what any of these are? Google it!
We can get so many other nutrients for our bodies just by trying other superfoods.
Now I will say I could keep going and going but there is no sense in overwhelming you.
Start with these 6 healthy lifestyle choices and I will be back with more in a future post.
