Long-Term Habits are the Most Important

Do you like to feel good? To look good? Yes, who doesn’t? For me, looking good makes me feel good. There are several ways we can do this, from daily habits such as putting on makeup or doing our hair to longer-term habits such as exercise and eating healthy. But to me, the most important long-term habits are exercise and eating nutritious foods because this affects our health as well as the way we look and feel. We are all given one body. Are you a Mercedes or a junkyard car?

How to Properly Fuel Your Body

Just like a Mercedes, you need to fuel your body with “premium,” healthy, natural food. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks are all premium fuel. Take in enough fuel or your Mercedes isn’t going to get you far, in fact, it could break down.

The Importance of Proper Form and Technique

Just like you wouldn’t take your Mercedes out on the highway without learning how to drive first, you need to learn how to properly work out. Do you know the proper way to work out? Do you have proper form, proper technique? Are you aware if one side of your body is stronger than the other?

Proper Alignment and Avoiding Injuries

Speaking of misalignment, are you in alignment? Do you tilt your head to the side as you become fatigued? Are you curving your neck forward and down? What is going on with your back? Are you aware of what is happening to your body? Do you know how to accomplish your goals? Do you know how to set goals?

Invest in Your Health with Exercise
