3 Affirmations For Healthy Living
By Judy Mick
Everyone should have a goal of being fit and staying healthy. We should want to live the best life that we can, have fun in our life and be around with our loved ones for a long, long time. Positive thinking through affirmations can help us to achieve this. Here are 3 affirmations that I feel are important for staying healthy - and why you should say them every day.
1. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I take time every day to eat a nutritious breakfast.
Breakfast means breaking the fast. As you sleep and rest throughout the night - your body is fasting and your metabolism is slowing down. By waking up to a good breakfast, you are jump starting your metabolism. You are getting your engine starting running for the day - and will have more energy throughout the day after a healthy breakfast. Also, by eating a good breakfast, you will be less likely to overcome your hunger by overeating at lunchtime.
2. I am committed to an exercise program and staying active.
An exercise program will help you to prolong your life and can even help keep many diseases away. I know that my running has helped me to have fewer colds and live an overall healthier lifestyle that I would have if I have not been active all these years. So, commit yourself to some sort of exercise every day. Make the time in your day to achieve this. If you need to, make a standing appointment with yourself every day. Put it in your appointment book. Yes, it's that important.
3. I am committed to a good night's sleep every night.
Having a good night's sleep is so important to your well-being. A good night's sleep can make you more productive in the following day. It also keeps you safe as you don't need to get drowsy as you drive or go through your day. Most people need 8 hours of sleep a night. And, your sleep needs to be sound. Clear your head of anything that is worrying you so that you can go right to sleep. If you need to do some sort of meditation or prayer before you go to bed to release what's on your mind - make sure that you do it. Also, make sure that your bedroom is comfortable and conducive to a good night's sleep. You should have the temperature right, your bed and pillow should invite you to them every night.
Being healthy is so important. I know that it is for me! Saying these affirmations everyday will make it important for you - and you will get the ideas in your subconscious so that you will get it done!
Getting in shape and staying in shape is a goal that everyone should have - no matter how busy they are. It's that important! Visit Health and Fitness Tips for more tips on exercise and healthy eating.
