Many people think being committed to a healthy lifestyle means living a life filled with restrictions. In fact, it is an overall mindset that changes your life for the better.
Being committed to your health means making yourself a priority. It means surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals who support you in those endeavors. You’ll have to be okay with losing some people along the way because they’re incapable of growth. They are stuck on the ground while you are reaching new heights.
Being committed means not letting others affect your version of happiness. Happiness is not having more muscle definition, weighing less on the scale, or comparing yourself to other people. Happiness is accepting yourself for who you are now and knowing you’ve done your best. It’s rewarding yourself with self-love for not giving up.
Being committed to a healthy life empowers you to focus on progress, not perfection. Changing your focus to positive affirmations, instead of negative attitudes, benefits everyone in your life. Your relationship with your spouse, your children, and every other person you encounter improves when you commit to being your best self.
