It was your senior year of college when you decided you wanted to change your lifestyle a bit. You loved candy bars and couldn’t get enough of them. Your diet and exercise up to that point in your life was the exact opposite of what would be deemed healthy. Somehow you still managed to receive good marks in school and graduate with a degree in speech language pathology.
Certain successes in life didn’t take away the disappointment you had with how you had let your physical health slip. You wanted to get in shape to get the most out of life. You feel like your lessons with students would be much better, your overall energy level better and the way you operate as a whole would be better with some minor adjustments. You can read any health and fitness blog and haven’t looked back since. You are now a runner and eat an extremely balanced diet. Your career seems to be going well and you are at the stage in life where you want to try something new. In this case it is going to be a blog.
You are no Stephen King, but you enjoy writing a bit. A blog is no novel, but it is something you enjoy doing, nonetheless. You truly believe that your blog can help inspire people to be healthier, just as one helped you years back. You want to present health in a way that relates to the reader. Health is something that can be fun. Nobody has to be a grouch as they get up from their slouched position on the couch.
Regular physical activity matters for one’s health. What makes up physical activity is long and wide. This is precisely why starting a blog attracts you: one can find something they enjoy doing while simultaneously getting the added benefit of exercise. Walks in nature, bike rides on paved roads, picking berries from the bush or mowing the lawn–one doesn’t often think of tasks as physical activity that can be rewarding, but there are certainly a lot out there.
When it comes to physical activity, one has to understand his or her limits. If they are having muscle fatigue and struggling to push forward, it is best to take a step back and assess the situation. Sometimes it is possible to play or participate in an activity injured without a chance to aggravate it further, but one needs to listen to their body. Diet is something that is also mandated for health.
People need food to survive, but often lack in getting the right nutrients. It’s a common misconception that healthy can’t taste good. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be bland or looked down upon. It can be colorful, fun and taste great. One shouldn’t hesitate to find healthy food options for themselves. Laying it out in a blog with step by step instructions makes eating healthy that much easier. Blogs can have purpose, especially when it comes to health.
