Is An Active Lifestyle Better For You Than Exercise?

Exercise VS Active Lifestyle For Weight Loss
When it comes to determining if you need to lead a life of health and wellness, it all boils down to your goals. If you have a significant amount of weight you would like to lose, then building a strict fitness routine into your life is your best option. Incorporating a mix between strength training and cardio are great if you are striving for a trim physical appearance. While exercise regimens are good for some people long term, they may not be sustainable for other people. Some may want to incorporate a slow weight loss plan into their lifestyle. This is best for people who don't have the time or have medical disabilities that might hinder their ability to do so. 

Exercise VS Active Lifestyle For Maintenance
If you are able to participate in an intense fitness routine or healthy lifestyle program, that is wonderful. But after you have achieved your goals, you may not want to hit the gym every day. This is a good time to take a look at your life as a whole. Take a look at what kind of physical activities you participate in on a daily basis. If there aren't any that you can think of, the take time to plan some activities that you think you will enjoy. Find a park you like and jog there a few times a week. If you live near water, take time to be in nature and swim for your daily dose of exercise. Whatever the activity, make sure you enjoy doing it. This will help you stay motivated to move and maintain your weight loss. 

Make An Active Lifestyle A Habit
Healthy lifestyles are exactly what they sound like: Making it your goal each day to move your body in some way while eating as healthy as you can. Changing your lifestyle is not easy. In fact, when it comes to habit forming, it can take a long time for your mind and body to commit to your decision to be healthy. Take one day at a time, and with everything you do and eat, as yourself this question: "Am I making the right choice for my body at this moment?" 

Living a healthy lifestyle is all about balance and deciding what is right for you. Different people thrive off of an intense exercise routine to keep them fit, while some people may prefer to get up and move multiple times a day. Keep your goals in mind and listen to how your body responds to different things to discover the best healthy lifestyle path for you.
