What Its Like To Be A Wellness Junkie

 

Spreading the gospel of nutrition.

“Everyday I am constantly drinking water, and constantly being active – I am cautiously making healthy decisions for myself because it makes me feel good."

It is no secret that leading a healthy lifestyle can be difficult. With influences to give into fatty foods and the temptation to binge watch Netflix, it takes a lot of discipline to eat well and stay active. There are many things to be learned for those willing and dedicated to their health. Wellness junkies realize the importance of staying healthy and see it as an opportunity rather than an inconvenience. After all, your body is a temple and you should treat it right. These are a few ways that van give you an idea of what it is like to be a wellness junkie.

Doing something for yourself every day

Whether it's giving your body essential nutrients or getting some exercise, being proactive helps maintain good emotional and physical health. Taking care of personal needs is something wellness junkies find pride in and know as an important daily component in life. You are your own expert, so only you can determine how you feel. By being good to yourself, you are choosing to love yourself.

Knowing food produces energy, so you eat how you want to feel

Have you ever heard the statement, “you are what you eat?” Well, when you are a wellness junkie, you know that what you put into your body has a direct influence on energy levels and overall health. Finding fun new recipes is a hobby for wellness junkies that, in turn, has the most delicious and beneficial rewards. Eating nutrient dense foods increases clarity, motivation and productivity. All traits that can drive ambition and bring happiness.

It is okay to have cheat days

Contrary to what you may think, wellness junkies know what it's like to indulge in their favorite junk foods. Coming from a wellness junkie, I am telling you it is okay to have “cheat days” and it is healthy to have balance. Being healthy does not mean completely cutting out all the good things life has to offer like champagne and cupcakes, it just means take everything in moderation. As long as these empty calorie foods do not make it into your daily diet, enjoy them every once and awhile and do not beat yourself up for it later.

Making fitness fun

Wellness junkies see being active as an opportunity to be welcomed into a new world of experiences and adventures. A positive mindset is key to a progressive fitness journey as working out boosts self-confidence and creates positive self-esteem. There are many fun ways to get active. From the gym to hiking, playing sports or going out dancing, it is important to switch up your workout routine in order to keep your interest. You can even recruit your friends and make it a competition. Setting goals is a great way to push yourself, feel accomplished and break a sweat. Fitness is what you make it, so why not make it fun?

Being sick less often

Through eating healthy and staying active, wellness junkies tend to have a strong immune system to do more of what they want, when they want. Overeating and drinking every night can weaken your immune system and make you feel sluggish or gross. This affects your attitude and sets a lousy standard for your day. Why wouldn’t you want to fuel your body with nutrient rich foods in order to feel great every day?
