7. Enjoy the Benefits and Commit to a Healthy Lifestyle!
Living a healthy life does not have to deprive you of the things that you love. I like to think of it as a lifestyle that pushes you to a new and exciting way of living. Work these seven steps into your daily life, and don’t be afraid of trying new things or doing new activities. Try a vegetable or a fruit that you have never eaten before. There are plenty of ways to prepare them or add them to a favorite dish. In addition, enjoy this warmer weather by going somewhere different each week for a hike, a run, or a bike ride. Also invite friends and family to join you in your journey. Having a support system holds you accountable and makes it more fun. Along the way you may find something new that you love to eat or love to do! As a result you will feel better and have more energy to make good choices and maintain healthy habits.
