Transcript of 01.07 Module One Summary
Most Americans hope to pursue a clean, healthy lifestyle. Only thing is, it's easier said than done. Once you are on a healthy living path: eating clean and exercising regularly should only be expected. But, where do you draw the line between staying on track and relishing your life?
Life is for living and should be enjoyed to its fullest; a flourishing lifestyle can be shaped into one in which all the grand things in life are enjoyed. Moderation is the key to indulgences; if you're looking for a way to justify McDonald's on a regular basis, then you're not truly interested in a healthy lifestyle, but there is certainly a way to enjoy life and keep your health a priority. However, staying healthy is made up of various components. Like keeping a nutritional diet, getting a full nights rest and overall staying active on a daily basis.
Making excuses for yourself only adds fuel to the fire. Find motivators that will make you WANT to wake up at 6am and run a mile. Whether it be grocery shopping for veggies/fruits more often, or going shopping for cute workout clothes. There's plenty for everyone, and there should never be an excuse. Bad weather? Do some Zumba indoors with your hubby or make it your duty to do 100 crunches and then eat your favorite Greek yogurt.
One does not wake up one day and magically decide it is time to lose some weight. This is typically something that the person going through said issue is the most aware. Thus adding unnecessary stress to the individual is quite immature and silly. These changes, specially when talking to children should be taken step by step. There are a few ways to make this process as efficient as possible.
Children need constant reassurance, and they need to feel loved and accepted. Whether overweight, weird, timid, a child deserves to be aware he or she has a team of supportive, loving people who will be there for them through anything and everything. Also, if the child’s lifestyle is in need of a change for health reasons, an ideal goal weight should be chosen with moderation. What is the most realistic? Losing 30lbs in one month? These questions should be analyzed and made clear with a licensed professional.
The steps that follow include becoming a role model not only for dietary purposes but academically, and morally. Changing your diet will one way or another trigger something in your child’s brain saying: “Wow, that looks good, I should eat it too”. Staying farther away from electronics (tv, phones, computers) will also influence them to be more inclined to go outside and stay more active than they would be on the couch.
Many other habits can become useful to acquire when trying to drastically alter ones lifestyle. For example, eating together as a family can not only change ones mindset physically, but mentally as well. Eating together is much more efficient and healthier as meals shared at the table are mostly home made. Eating together teaches children food sustainability. It's essential that our children learn where our foods come from, and what is in it. Again, mainly learned when food is home made. And finally, eating together builds closer relationships within the family which is always essential for families in today’s modern society.
