A Healthy Life is a Wealthy Life

weight scaleTo live a long and prosperous life means that you must keep your mind and body healthy. We hear so many stories nowadays about people with cancer and people who suffer heart attacks because of poor diet.

One of my exercise goals is to work out at least three times a week. Not only is exercise a good way to keep my body slim, but it also gives me energy which increases my productivity. I also feel happier!

So many people go on diets to lose weight, which is fine, but I think a diet must go hand-in-hand with a good exercise program. But then, I've also heard of people who just use positive affirmations along with exercise to keep the weight off. I think it's possible to go that route as well.

Are you someone who can't seem to keep the weight off? Here are a couple things that I've done to keep myself healthy:

1. Post reminders around the house to exercise. Thank God for Post Its!
2. I browse through Health Magazine for education on things I can do to stay healthy
3. I say positive affirmations like: I am happy and healthy or I stay slim and trim.

I've never considered going through a weight loss program, but if you are you may be interested in this website where you can review Medifast, Nutrisystem and other weight loss diet programs . I like the article on the website that explains why diets often fail. Here's a profound thought from the article: "For diets to work, they must be part of larger lifestyle changes, and they cannot be off and on. Successful diets are usually the least radical ones."

If I could give just one piece of advice who want to lose weight and live a healthier and longer life, it would be this: Take it one day at a time. Take baby steps. Don't try to lose 10 pounds in a week if you don't believe its possible. Start with 2 pounds a week and go from there. Go with smaller, achievable steps and once you've done that and have built up confidence, go with bigger goals.

Always remember: A healthy life is a wealthy life!
