It's easy to observe music videos and television and envy the the appearance of someone. We are constantly bombarded with images that show us to look a certain way. It's easy to get caught up in trying to look like or even be like someone else. But the truth is, that's not happening. Instead of aspiring to be like someone else, focus on being the best you.
1. Pinpoint your goals
Do you want to be toned? Gain muscle? Lose weight? Whatever your goal is, make sure you identify it so you can plan how to better achieve it. Make lists. Talk to a trainor. Consider taking group fitness classes that align with your goals. And don't forget your cardio. It's good for everyone.
2. Remind yourself of your good qualities You are a unique individual and there are things about your personality that no one else has. As cheesy as it sounds, make a list of all your positive attributes and read it every morning. These reminders will give you a boost before you start your day. Additionally, remember to always set some time aside every day for yourself. You deserve it.
3. Get your diet right
Don't focus on completely changing your diet, but take a look at your current diet and make note of where some adjustments can be made. Substitute sugary drinks with water. Eat more protein. Plan out your meals and find fun ways to incorporate healthy foods into them. Once you get used to a healthier diet, you will see results and it will get easier.
You can't be the best version of you if you're stressed out. Try a yoga class. Light some candles and take a bath. Watch your favorite movie and tune out for a couple hours. Whatever it is that eases your mind, do it. Stress has a surprisingly large impact on overall health.
Go ahead and admire that super-fit supermodel, but remember-aspire to be YOUR best.
