5 Tips To Stay Healthy

There are already so many things that we have to deal with on a daily basis, is it fair that we must also deal with keeping ourselves healthy. I mean can't our brains and bodies just take care of all our needs and if we do happen to abuse our bodies with unhealthy foods can't our organs just make do with it. Like that's their only job.

Staying healthy is never easy and staying healthy, especially in college, is almost next to impossible.

You can have so many excuses to eat out or eat something absolutely decadent and ridiculous. Forget about trying to maintain healthy eating habits but there are literally a million excuses to not exercise or maintain any sort of physical activity. The world is your oyster to remain an unhealthy blob that is always too busy, stressed, or "out of it." You will always have a million reasons to not convert to a healthy lifestyle, but truthfully, you only need one reason to try your utmost to live your best healthy life.

Here are some ways in which you can maintain a healthy life:

1. Keep Impulses At Bay 

It is often very tempting to give into sinful impulses especially if you have been hungry for the whole day and haven't had the chance to eat yet. In this situation, try to keep yourself away from the grocery store, fast food restaurants, or even the kitchen. If you enter any of these places on a hungry stomach then you are bound to purchase or cook impulsively and impulsive cooking leads to unhealthy choices. Food is the best way to monitor and maintain a healthy lifestyle and often can be the hardest one to control, but you just have got to push through and instill a discipline.

2. Try One Thing 

It is important to get into some sort of physical activity. It's not necessary to have to do something highly intensive as long as you are doing something at all. It can be as something as simple as just walking everywhere you go to running three times a week.

3. Work Out With A Friend 

Working out with someone is a very effective method of working out. You don't necessarily need to do every physical activity with another person but working out with someone gives you an opportunity and motivation to head to the gym in the first place.

4. Don't Try Crash Diets 

Crash diets or diets that promise weight loss or something dramatic in a short period of time is a health hazard. Healthy living is an ongoing process which requires time. Don't indulge in crash diets that might often lead to frustrations when results are achieved in the given limited time frame.

5. Find Something You Love 

Finally, when trying to involve yourself in a physical activity try to engage in something that you find an interest in. It can be something like dancing, boxing or any other thing that interests you. As long as you are engaged you will be more encouraged to stay involved.

Healthy living is hard but not impossible. As long as you keep your wits together you will come out on the other side being healthy, wealthy and wise.

Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
