We would all like to live a little healthier. That’s only been hammered home more vividly over the past two years or so. But let’s be honest: It’s not always easy to stick to that diet, or that exercise regimen, or the commitment to giving up that vice. Sometimes, we need a little inspiration.
Read on for a few motivational quotes to inspire your healthy lifestyle:
“Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save and preserve it.” – Plato
One of the earliest great intellectual minds in human history was aware of the value of good health. Plato’s words still ring true today. Being inactive is not good for your body or your mind. Staying active is good for your entire self.
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” – Jim Rohn
This quote serves to remind us of an important fact that is easy to forget: We only have one body. That means it’s imperative that we treat it well. If you neglect your bodily health, it can be difficult to reverse the trend and get back to the healthy self that you once were. Being proactive about your good health is a much better approach.
“A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.” – Irish Proverb
Aside from eating well and exercising, getting regular sleep is incredibly important for your overall health. And don’t forget that laughing, socializing, and feeling good with your friends and family is just as beneficial as exercise, diet, and sleep. Your mental health directly affects your physical health and vice versa. Sometimes, a little laughter and a good sleep can work wonders.
“Health is not about the weight you lose. It’s about the life you gain.” – Unknown
Rather than focusing on numbers on the scale, focus on how you feel. If you haven’t lost the number of pounds you would have liked to but you’re loving the way you look, then you’re succeeding. It’s as simple as that. A healthy lifestyle does not always have to correlate to a specific weight or body type.
Live Healthy To Feel Great
Whether you want to exercise more, eat better, or get more sleep, having the motivation to push toward your healthier living goals is important. Keep the above quotes in mind next time you need a little boost.
