Another Benefit of Healthy Living

There are so many benefits to exercise and eating healthy. We can get caught up sometimes on only focusing on one benefit. But what happens if we do not achieve that benefit, such as our desired weight loss, as quickly as we want. We quite!Managing our stress and anxiety, which leads to a life of balance and wellbeing, is one of the great benefits to exercising and eating healthy. There are so many days when I don’t feel like exercising or could care less what I eat, but then I quickly remember the euphoria that exercise provides and the energy nutritious foods gives me to get through my daily task. Research has shown that even 5-10 minutes of exercise each day consistently for 12 weeks can significantly reduce stress and anxiety. Taking a few minutes in the middle of the day to take a walk around the block, walk a flight of stairs a couple of times, or conduct a few Yoga moves or light stretching can give a whole new perspective for the rest of the day. Eating High fat foods regularly can leave us feeling lethargic and greatly affect our moods. Filling our diet with fruits and vegetables, healthy carbohydrates and foods that are rich in fiber can give us energy and a feeling of satisfaction. To start the day off right, make sure to get a jump-start on your fiber for breakfast with high fiber breads or cereals and a great piece of fruit. Realizing there is more than one benefit to a healthy lifestyle can help keep us consistent in the choices that week.
