Many people are terrified of making changes in their lives. They want to cling to what they have because that feels safe, even if it’s boring and tedious.
However, some of the most challenging changes we need to make are related to how we treat our bodies. We all know deep down what we need to do, we just refuse to do it. We know that we need to eat better, sleep right, and meditate more often, but for one reason or another, we just don’t do what we should.
As some motivational speakers, such as Tony Robbins, like to point out, how your body appears right now is a reflection of your standards. If your standard in life is to look and feel great, your body will reflect that. You’ll be toned, slim, and fit. You may have muscles, and your skin will be clear from all the fruits and veggies that you eat. However, if your standards are lower, and your lifestyle revolves around eating chips and watching Netflix, then that will be reflected in your body, too.
In this post, we take a look at some telltale signs that it’s time to make a change in your lifestyle so that you can improve your body and achieve the level of well-being you desire.
You Get Winded Walking Up Stairs
If you find yourself getting winded after walking up a couple of flights of stairs, it’s a sign that your cardiovascular health is poor. You’re not doing everything you should be doing to keep the system healthy, and now it is laboring under the weight of high blood pressure and furred-up arteries
The solution? Simple. Eat whole plant floods. Studies show that practically everyone can reverse their heart disease if they stick with this simple diet.
You Get Migraines
Most people get the occasional migraine at some point in their lives. But if yours are chronic and undermining your ability to work, then it is a sure sign that you have a problem.
Migraines typically result from lifestyle factors. Perhaps you’re staring at a screen for too long each day. Or maybe you are drinking too much soda. Whatever it is, look at your lifestyle habits and change them one by one to see which is the culprit.
You Keep Reaching For Pick-Me-Ups
Reaching for pick-me-ups or using drugs to make yourself feel better is a great way to land yourself in a methadone clinic. If you start relying on things in the outside world to make you feel better, you’ll eventually become dependent on them, no matter what they are.
The trick here is to feel content and blissful in yourself. It’s a switch that you need to flip.
But how do you do that? Simple: make the switch from expectation to appreciation. Once you are grateful for what your life is right now, you can immediately improve your mood. And that’s where energy comes from.
So, what type of changes do you need to make in your life to achieve greater wellness?
