Navigating The Long Road: Following Your Own Path To Total Health

October 22, 2019





These days, we are swamped with information about living a healthy life, and that we have to choose one path. But while so many people go on these health retreats, and pay for products that may very well prove to benefit our lives, what about those people that just don't have the money to go and live in a cave for six months? When it comes to being healthy we've got to follow our nose. But when it comes to following your own path, especially when it comes to total health, are there any keys that we should follow?

What Would You Like To Achieve?
When you set yourself a goal, it becomes a more tangible fit. Sometimes, you need to ask yourself a big question; do you want to climb a mountain or do you want to be able to walk across a tightrope? But the fact is, once you start to ask yourself these big questions in conjunction with the goal that is when you can start to plan a health routine or a workout plan that helps you. If you wanted to walk across a tightrope, you may very well want to go down the yoga path, and practice yoga for flexibility, and the great thing is that as soon as you set these goals in place, it provides that automatic focus. So ask yourself, what would I like to achieve? Whether it's physically, mentally, or in terms of your own internal health.

Choosing One Choice For Change
When you are looking to make a total change in your health, the big mistake so many people make is doing too much too soon. Picking one choice helps you you to focus, but it gives you a better chance of achieving it. Fix one thing that feels like it could be achieved. If you want to eat healthier, or exercise more, or minimize stress, if you can focus on one thing at a time, as soon as this change has become part of the norm in your life, focus on the next one. Perhaps if you are focusing on too many different areas, you're not giving each area the significant time or attention it really needs.

Remember To Reward Yourself
You may feel that achieving a certain goal is reward enough, but if obstacles are in your way (and there will be obstacles!), this can be the quick way to giving up. It doesn't have to be anything major, but you can give yourself a little reward so you can remember why you're doing this and it can keep you on the path. Because there are obstacles getting in the way, we can very easily take this as a sign to give up. But by consistently rewarding yourself with something little, not only does it feel like you are going in the right direction, but a little bit of what you fancy is absolutely fine!

Following your own path to total health is a long road, but this is why you need a goal in place. And remember, there will be setbacks! It's not something that can be done overnight, but if you can start to make positive inroads in the right direction, you are doing it correctly.
