Small Changes For A Healthier Lifestyle Change
You may have big ambitions, we always go hard in the beginning but make sure you are realistic.
The big targets can feel so far into the future and you start to get discouraged.
Then you end up quitting. I’ve been there time after time.
making small, reachable goals will keep you motivated to achieve your end goal. One baby step at a time.
Instead of running through your neighborhood just go for a brisk walk. Enough to get your heart pumping.
Or instead of heading straight to the free weights at the gym try the treadmill for 20 minutes.
You want to gradually build stamina and endurance. it feels amazing when you hit those goals and do them regularly.
And though your beginning was small, your latter days will be very great. (Job 8:7)

Find someone that is already where you want to be, for inspiration and guidance.
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17)

Also, there are a few FB groups that you can join that will inspire and encourage you as you begin your own journey.
There are so many blogs out there that you can follow if you want to remain anonymous.
Often these blogs are full of tips and tricks for things such as different exercises that you can try and alternative ways you can reach your goals.
It’s More than Exercise, It’s A Lifestyle Change
It is not just about your exercise routine or schedule. It’s about a complete lifestyle change.
So this is down to the food you eat, the supplements you take, the amount of sleep, and the rest you get.
First of all, your diet is important. You won’t see any benefits of exercising if you are still munching on burgers and chips at every opportunity. Believe me I know.

Thanks so much for sharing. Small changes, I think that is key….and having patience with yourself. Really good and inspiring read!!
Wonderful reminders for how to make a lifestyle change. I’m currently in the throes of doing just that. I’ve found comfort in several self-help book. Exercising in nature has been very helpful too. Walks on the beach, in the forest, etc. It gives me time to meditate on my worries.
All great tips you got here, exercise is a form of self care for me also. Glad Im on track with your tips.
It definitely is a lifestyle change, and that needs to be the mindset before moving forward. Otherwise it’s easy to get discouraged if you see a lack of results. Great thoughts and tips here!
Indeed we also need to take good care of our bodies and that starts with the food that we eat, the activities we do and the lifestyle we live. Oh, how guilty I am of these things, especially with exercise! Thank you for the good reminder.
Thanks for the tips. This area of exercise has really been a struggle for me, but I am taking it easy on myself. I try to stay active and walk and do light exercises when I can.
I really liked your suggestions. When I was young, I was the skinniest kid, just naturally, and so exercise wasn’t something I cared about one bit! I got into exercising about a year ago after I had surgery and was gaining weight. I feel much better but sometimes it sure is hard to keep up with it, because its not “really” something I enjoy and didn’t grow up with good exercise habits. You’re right – something we just need to go with some small goals otherwise we’ll feel overwhelmed!: )
