Use The 80/20 Rule When It Comes To Exercise And Healthy Eating
You could think of your health and wellness like a bank account, your own personal bank account to be more exact. You can make deposits and you can make withdrawals. If you continue to make deposits over time you will end up with a healthy balance, have a body you are proud to live in and reap the rewards of peak health and fitness.
If you continue to make withdrawals at some point your account will become overdrawn and you could find yourself on the sharp end of poor health which can in the short term lead to a lower quality of life and in the long term to disease and a shortened life.
As it takes time to build this bank account it is all about the small deposits you make on a daily basis. Each healthy macro-nutrient balanced meal (protein, carbohydrates and fat) and each proper exercise session (where you are working your muscles properly) will add to your account balance.
Think of this as a journey – and a journey is made up of hundreds of small steps rather than being a one time event. It is the little things you do and do not do on a daily basis that add up and make a difference. Not a small difference either – but a really big difference over time.
It is easy to ignore habits that you know are not helping you to reach your long-term goals. We get busy and we get lazy and we just continue down the same old path because it is easier to do so. Change is hard so we tend to put it on the back burner. But as the years pass those add up and combine to work against our health.
