You Might Not Be Perfect, But You Can Try To Get Close

IMG_8219

We’ve all come face to face with the idea of perfection in the past. Whether it’s an ideal body shape, a dreamy hairstyle, or the most beautiful home you’ve ever seen, perfection can often be a goal for a lot of people. But, it’s time that perfection doesn’t really exist. When we stop putting pressure on ourselves to achieve the unattainable, we can start to relax a little and enjoy our lives. And this couldn’t be any more relevant to our health. From the size of our bodies to the way we treat them, chasing perfection can often harm your health. Instead, focus on bettering yourself, just because.

Push Yourself In The Gym

Why do you hit the gym? Is it to burn off last night’s pizza or to lose weight? If so, you might want to work on changing your outlook on what exercise means to your body. When you work on improving your health, your strength or your well being, you’ll find that your relationship with the gym and your body improves. Then, you can start to challenge yourself when you’re in the gym and actually enjoy the feeling of beating your best every single week.

Limit Your Units

Having a glass of wine or two now and then isn’t harmful to your health. But, if you start to notice those units creep up in volume, or indulge on a regular (or daily) basis, you might want to think about your health, and not the need for alcohol. But limiting your alcohol intake, you’re helping lots of areas of your health, from your toxin drainage to the condition of your skin. You don’t have to go teetotal to be a picture-perfect of health, just knowing your limits is good enough.

Work On Those Weak Spots

We all have weaknesses and bad habits, and although it’s not easy to change your lifestyle overnight, you can work on making it better and kicking your bad habits for good. Trying to strive for perfection when you have a weak spot can make you feel like it’s impossible, so you don’t want to try to change. Instead, working on better yourself by beating those habits can help. So, try to satisfy your sweet tooth with natural products instead of sweets, and opt for e cig kits from E-Cigarette Direct rather than regular cigarettes.

Take Time Out

Society often makes us feel like we should have it all and do it all and be it all. But, that can often lead to burnout. So, instead of chasing the ideal image of yourself being the woman that can do it all, step back. As soon as you realize that you can’t do it all and stay healthy, the better you’ll be. Allow yourself to take time out, relax, see your friends and do the things you love every once in awhile. You’ll feel calmer for it.

Set Cheat Days

Extremism can lead to self-destruction. Eating super clean can often lead to you craving all of your favorite bad foods and caving. And when you eat all junk all of the time, you’re probably harming your health. So, you want to find that perfect balance. Schedule in cheat meals so that you know you’ve got a treat to look forwards to when you’re eating healthy, and it will make you stay on track.
