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.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
