A new era has come and the old pillars of normalcy are crumbling beneath the weight of the new. What that means is that in the continuation of the pandemic and the vaccine that is just around the corner, nothing will ever be the same as before. This change urges you to alter the lifestyle that you had pre-covid-19. This is the time where you make resolutions that give you purpose to commit to your goals. This might be the time where you implement new activities to keep you healthy spiritually, mentally, and physically. In this post, we will be exploring how leading a healthy lifestyle and developing good habits can make staying at home fun rather than boring.
The term lifestyle can be perceived differently within our minds. This post defines it as a form of practice and discipline to make sure you are persistent in achieving the goals that you set for yourself. Habits, on the other hand, are the foundations of putting your objectives into practice. Habits can be developed by two methods: one by observation, and two, by actively engaging with the thoughts and the objectives you have set for yourself.
For example your objectives maybe this new year would be primarily eating healthy, exercising, sleeping on time, spending time with family and friends virtually or in person, and meditating. Regardless of what they may be, you should create concise objectives as to how you will achieve them and apply them to your lifestyle. Exercising and eating healthy could be a valuable objective to have because now that you are home every day you want to find an outlet to be active, which can include from normal walking to just doing individual body parts exercises such as push-ups. This will make you feel a sense of achievement mentally and physically.
“Depending on what they are, our habits will either make us or break us. We become what we repeatedly do”
To conclude this post it is important for you to have objectives to turn them into habits and to put those habits into action by engaging with them regularly, which in turn becomes part of your lifestyle.
