Change Your Life: Three Ways to Implement Healthy Living

healthy living

By Mikkie Mills

Do you want to change your life? When most people think of healthy living, they consider things like diet changes or exercising more. However, true healthy living goes far deeper than the care of the physical body. It’s about creating and maintaining a healthy balance between body, mind, spirit and the world around us.

Getting Started: Learn from Experts

When venturing into a new world for the first time, it helps to have a guide you can trust. Unfortunately, there are dozens if not hundreds of people claiming to be experts on diet and lifestyle, and many of them offer contradicting advice.

When determining who to listen to, look for people who are making a difference in the world versus just trying to sell you something. Choose to follow the lead of people like Jordan Rubin, who develops creative and environmentally responsible farming techniques to produce nutrient-dense foods. After battling a serious health condition, Jordan began exploring the world of organic nutrition and spirituality, and he was able to turn his health condition around. This real-life experience provides a solid foundation from which to teach others.

Making the Shift: Turn Down the Noise

Just like pesticide-laden food is bad for our bodies, negative messages from the media can harm our minds. Although social media can be great for keeping in touch with friends and family, promoting businesses or simply learning new things, studies have shown that it can also be harmful.

Research from UC San Diego and Yale found that people who liked more social media posts and clicked on more links reported poor mental health in surveys. Other studies have found similar negative outcomes for social media users. However, research seems to indicate that the way we use social media has a huge impact, so use these sites to directly interact with long-distance loved ones rather than mindlessly browsing social media feeds.

Negative noise also comes in through television, news feeds and a variety of other sources. Through tuning it out and tuning into a higher vibration, we’re able to deeply connect to who we truly are. Have you ever spent an entire day in silence? Quieting the noise is sometimes scary because people are afraid to face who they truly are. However, once you do, you’ll begin to develop a compassion for yourself that you’ve never known, and that compassion will grow and spread to others as you continue to see the positive rather than the negative in life.

Moving Ahead: Refuel Your Passions

Life is nothing without passion. There’s a reason you’re drawn to the things you love in life, and that shouldn’t be ignored. Most of us have to maintain some sort of job to get by, but if you let yourself get trapped in a negative routine, you’ll begin to stagnate. No matter what you have to do to get by, don’t let it get in the way of the things you truly want to do, whether that be making art, traveling or anything else.

If you aren’t sure what your passions are, now is the time to get out and begin exploring them. A lot of people want to be creative but fear they don’t have the talent for it, but you don’t need any type of skill to begin creating. Studies have shown that creating helps people feel happier and more resilient to the challenges of life. When you combine that with a healthy diet and positive outlook on life, you’ll be amazed at the heights you can reach.

Making adjustments to your lifestyle is never easy, but if you keep your focus on the big picture and your overall well-being, it’s easier to stay on the path. Rather than thinking in extremes, make small changes each week to your lifestyle and way of thinking, and before you know it, you’ll be living the life you once only dreamed of.
