When it comes to our health, we all have some serious investment in our well being, and for good reason. It’s literally a matter of life and death. Not only could poor health lead to an early death, but it can also severely reduce your quality of life, which is kind of like death lite, in a sense. Sorry to get morbid there, but those are the stakes when it comes to health. Therefore, it helps to know early and be reminded often how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. And, don’t worry, you can buy most of what you’ll need at Target.
First and foremost, there’s the all important matter of your diet. Many of us, espcially Americans, subsist largely on processed foods, and that’s not good. Processed foods offer convenient and affordable alternatives to other foods, but that comes at a price. See, the “process” in processed foods entails adding preservatives and fillers to make them last longer and cheaper to produce, but this severely detracts from their nutritional value. Therefore, you need to replace them in your diet with fresh ingredients and home cooked meals to see benefits both in the short term and in the long term, including, but not limited to, weight loss.
Then, there’s exercise. Exercise is a tricky thing for many of us. For example, my problem is that my legs are “ripped” from walking and biking everywhere naturally, so it seems like I’m good, but then my arms are relatively weak, so there’s still the need for a workout routine. That’s the whole issue of exercise in a nutshell. Find a routine that works for your unique needs and stick to it. You’ll be tempted to give up when you can’t keep up, but that’s the point; you’re there to improve, and as they say, “no pain, no gain.”
