Living life healthy, happy, sexy, and pain-free are timeless desires for our masses. There is a unlimited amount of info out there for you to do things like: “Attract the Perfect Babe”, “Lose 10 Pounds in 10 Days”, or “Get a Quick Fix for Your Chronic Pain”. There are drugs, programs, and schemes that throw themselves at anything and everything listening.
So many people have lost faith in themselves. They try these semi-empty tactics with little to no results. I am here to tell you that whatever you want is sitting right there, inside of you. Yes, sometimes it does take a lot of hard work and discipline. Short cuts generally do cut your results “short”. Yes, you can lose 10 pounds in 10 days, which can be a lifesaver when you try on that nice outfit that you need to wear next week just to find out that you have gained a few pounds. The reality though, is that people just don’t keep those 10 pounds off.
Would it not just be better if we were living the lifestyle that allows you to fit in that perfect outfit at any given whim? Be honest with yourself, a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle is actually a lot less stressful than a hodge podge, impatient lifestyle.
Discipline is what we need anytime we want something in our lives to change. Discipline to be the person we desire to be. Whoever that may be.
My very last Advanced Chiropractic blog article has past. This is it. My very last Advanced synopsis. Woah.
While I am excited to start this new journey of independence, I am so glad to have had this opportunity to help other people heal along this particular part of my healing journey. I appreciate every single person who has been along for this ride. (I love you for all of your support Jacqui, it means so much to me!)
I am just so excited to be writing on my own topics! You guys will really start to see me coming out- wild and free, not unlike an armadillo. I like dragonflies though. Easy, breezy dragonflies- a symbol of renewal, growth, and change.
Remember, we will be getting back to discipline very soon.
In my previous Advanced Chiropractic synopsis for The Importance of Hydration | Answering the Whys, Hows, Whats, and More, we talked about the ultimate health trio: eating well, being active, and drinking plenty of water.
I stand by this trio and would like to add a bit of a note. Simply living this full, unadulterated lifestyle does not necessarily take any special program or attractively compiled tricks. It simply takes discipline.
The first step of discipline is education. In other words, get yourself inspired for your goals. How else will you care enough to reach them? Once you have the Why’s in your mind, you will be ready to follow through with the How’s.
This very last Advanced article, 13 Reasons Your Health Relies on Your Active Lifestyle, you are bound to find some inspiration for having and keeping an active lifestyle.
If you would like my researched explanations of these benefits, follow the link to the original article.
The reasons are as follows:
- Weight Management
- Heart Health
- Type 2 Diabetes (management and prevention)
- Cancer Prevention
- Bone Health
- Muscle Health
- Mental Health
- Mood Management
- Brain Health
- Memory Strength
- Daily Function
- Pain Reduction
- Longer Life
