Making Health a Priority

posted on October 17, 2017

We all know we need to lead healthy lives, right? Figuring out what “healthy” means to you though can end up being a little tricky. And on top of that, how do we integrate healthy living into our daily lives? Follow the tips below to begin to integrate healthy living into your daily life.

1. Define what being healthy looks like to you

Maybe this means quitting smoking finally. Or only consuming alcohol twice a week. Or trading your soda for water. It could mean getting a handle on your nutrition. Perhaps it involves trying a new fitness routine and sticking to it. Whatever health means to you, actually defining it and writing it down can be a great start to making health a priority!

2. Start small

Now that you’ve defined what healthy means to you, that doesn’t mean you have to accomplish everything at that exact moment! Start small with smart, tiny changes to your daily life. If you’ve decided to quit smoking, start by talking to your doctor. If you’ve decided to find a new fitness routine, start by talking to a coach here at UF. Baby steps to positive changes.

3. Start tackling your goals step by step

Baby steps to positive changes! Figure out your short term and long term goals and the different steps and paths to get yourself there.

4. Have an accountability partner

It always helps to have someone that can keep you accountable or merely someone to lend you an ear. There may be times you’ll need to vent, scream, cry or voice frustrations. And who better to share your many future victories and accomplishments with than your accountability partner?

5. Put a reward system into place

So you made it to the gym three times a week for the last month, go reward yourself! It’s great to have a reward system in place for the times you meet short term goals. Just be careful to not let your rewards cancel out all the hard work you’ve put in so far.

6. Enjoy the fruits of your labor

Don’t forget to take the time to notice the changes happening. If you quit smoking, take in some big breaths of fresh air and notice how differently your sense of smell has become. If you started a new fitness routine, check out yourself in the mirror and point out all the new muscle growth you see. Take the time to appreciate the fruits of your labor, whatever they might be.

Only you can make your health a priority but our staff here at Union Fitness can always be of service! Talk to one of our coaches today to help you make your health matter.
