10 Habits Of Fit And Healthy People

Have you ever met anyone who is a health fanatic? Maybe they rarely touch dessert or fried  chicken, or they go to the gym every day. Maybe their favourite lunch includes a whole grain bread sandwich with sprouts and a wheatgrass juice chaser? Possibly they don’t engage in  unhealthy behaviours like smoking or excessive drinking?

There are people who live by a strict code of health that of course includes regular exercise  and a healthy diet.

These people never miss a check-up, they stay up to date with all the latest medical news  and take great care to follow their doctor’s orders.

What sets these people apart?  

Taking care of themselves is their highest priority. These people take their health seriously, it  is ingrained in them and a huge part of who they are. They live by the code of self-care and are rarely tempted by the indulgences some of us take part in every day.

Good health really does come down to self-care that is at the core of all health-conscious people, it is what drives and motivates their behaviour. They care about their health, their  wellbeing and living healthy lives. 

Many have had this attitude their whole lives, and for some it all began in childhood with  parents who role modelled positive health habits. But, in reality, anyone can adopt this  attitude, even if it is not something you learned while growing up.

Good self-care can be learned and adopted at any age, and a good place to start is by  learning about the 10 habits of these healthy folks who make self-care a priority.

10 Habits of Healthy People 

Habit #1: To Exercise or Not Is Not An Option 

Healthy people get exercise on a regular basis. They rarely wonder if they should go to the  gym or not, they just go. They workout with gusto, some because they love it, and for some  it is simply necessary for good health, a great body, disease prevention and overall  well being.

Habit #2: Moderation 

Healthy people understand moderation. They don’t eat whole bags of chips, and they do not  regularly eat junk food or unhealthy sweets. They have accepted that these foods are not  conducive to their health, and they are simply not a regular diet choice.

Healthy people enjoy an occasional indulgence, but instead of eating a whole slice of cake,  they eat one or two bites. Some may occasionally order French fries, but it is only on a rare  occasion.

They pay attention to portion sizes and avoid mindless eating that can lead to weight gain and other health problems. Their typical diet is filled with healthy whole foods that support  their health, improve their energy levels, and prevent chronic disease.

Habit #3: Setting Priorities 

Health-conscious people know how to set priorities. They don’t look for excuses to skip a  workout, instead they make those workouts a priority, even if that means skipping an  evening out, or postponing some other activity that interferes. Exercise always takes priority  on their daily schedules.

Habit #4: Goal Setting 

Healthy people set goals that they wish to achieve. Whether it is to maintain a certain  weight, or to lift a certain weight, or to improve some aspect of their fitness and health  level, they set goals and plan what needs to be done to achieve them.

Habit #5: Set Time for Relaxation 

Healthy people set aside time for relaxation and plan activities that help them to de-stress. They understand that self-care is not only about the things you do, but also about things you  don’t do. Too much work, the hustle and bustle of life and everyday tension that results from  a busy lifestyle must be counteracted with enough relaxation so that stress does not become  an impact on good health.

Healthy people understand that relaxation is a reset button, and they take the time to push  that button regularly.

Habit #6: Stay in Touch with Their Bodies 

Healthy people are in touch with their bodies, they pay attention to what their body and their mind need as they strive for optimal health and wellness.

Habit #7: Social Relationships 

Healthy people strive for healthy social interactions and interpersonal relationships. They  know that their emotional state and overall fulfilment plays a key role in their health.

Habit #8: Sleep 

A big part of self-care is getting enough sleep every single night and health-conscious people  strive to do so because it helps them to be healthier and function at their very best  throughout the day.

Habit #9: No Addictions 

Healthy people don’t engage in addictive behaviours, including, smoking, illicit drugs, and  excessive alcohol use.

Habit #10: Preventative Care 

Healthy people get regular preventative health screenings, as well as preventative care. They  visit their doctor and get tests like those for cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes.  They get regular physicals, mammograms, testicular exams, and pap smears to ensure there  are no issues that need their immediate attention.

They also engage in regular preventative care, like visiting the dentist for cleanings and eye  care specialists for eye exams.
