Have you ever stopped to really think about how your lifestyle impacts your health and wellness? If you’re like most people, you’re struggling to lose weight and stay healthy all while trying to keep up in a fast-paced, super-stressed, and overworked world. And with more than one-third (36.5%) of U.S. adults struggling with obesity, there’s no denying the impact your lifestyle has on your quality of life. That’s why the first step to a healthier you is to stop and take the time to examine whether you’re truly leading your healthiest life. Making efforts to analyze your life and identify your hurdles can greatly help you set more realistic goals to achieving optimal health and wellness.
The best way to get a more accurate assessment of your lifestyle is to record your eating habits, mealtimes, and other activities throughout the day. The more detailed you are, the more accurate picture you’ll have of your current lifestyle. You may discover that you frequently skip breakfast and binge at lunch. Or that you mindless snack in front of the television late at night. Or that you suffer from the same dull headache around the same time of day after a cup of coffee. It’s also good to keep a log of your physical activity and length of time devoted to exercising (or lack thereof) throughout the day.
Mapping your daily activities and eating schedule will help you become more mindful about your food choices, portions, exercise, and daily routines. When you take the time to pay closer attention to your daily life, you’ll begin to have a better understanding about what’s working and what’s not in regards to your health and happiness. Devoting just ten minutes a day to sit down and really track what’s going on in your life is the first step to a healthier you, because you’ll become more aware and mindful of what’s happening in your life instead of just running on autopilot.
