Your health is an investment

   You only have one life. You only have one body. You are in full control of what you put in it. Choose wisely. Please please please don't get me wrong, I am not telling you to cut out all "bad" foods or restrict yourself from eating the food you love, but I am rather encouraging you to look at things more holistically. Growing up, I did not care about what I put into my body. I remember snacking out of boredom, drinking sugary beverages, and so many other things that left me feeling unenergized and uncomfortable in my skin. One day, I decided to turn everything around and transform my lifestyle. Learning about nutrition and making healthy recipes got me so excited, and it was definitely a new found passion. From that moment on, I started trying my best to fuel my body with the right things.

 It's safe to say that it's been a journey, but I finally feel like I have found a balanced diet. My definition of a "healthy lifestyle" is focusing on getting in all of my necessary nutrients, but treating myself and not being afraid to have that Reese's Blizzard at 10:00 pm on a Friday night, because life is too short to be restrictive. When I eat mindfully and listen to my body is when I feel the best. My best advice for anyone looking to live a healthier lifestyle is to think long-term. A diet promising you to "lose weight fast" may work for a certain amount of time, but chances are, it won't be something you can follow for your whole life. Healthy living doesn't have to consist of salads and low calorie foods, but should be something enjoyable and maintainable. I like to think of health as an investment because what you do now will affect how you feel in the future. Eating whole and nutritionally dense foods has so many benefits, and really does make a difference in your well being. Thank you so much for reading - more health related posts to come.
