On my quest to finding out how can a healthy diet make a person feel really good and happy. I came across this great picture which says it all. Hats off to the artist who created this picture.
It shows the comparison of the thought process of a healthy and an obese guy who pretty much say it all through their body language.
Notice the triangles on these guys. The happy guy has his triangle facing downward which indicate broad shoulders and a narrow waist and the not so happy guy has his triangle pointing his head thus indicating his broader waist than his shoulders.
The colours represent the thoughts and actions of these guys and what they actually mean is given at the bottom of the picture. The happy guy has got a lot of green on him, whereas the not so happy guy has very little green on him.
Our thoughts,actions and the diet we have exhibit the kind of person we are and you and only you can bring about a change if you are not feeling really happy all the time.
I don’t know what kind of person you are, but by looking at this picture you very well know in which frame do you fit. If you are in the not so happy frame then just flip the triangle and start turning things around for good.
For somebody who has a tough job to look after all health resolutions for 2013 go for a toss eventually. This happens as the job seems to get the most of you. You mind stays more focused on job and is under constant stress. This not only destroys your resolutions but also the overall health goes up for a toss.
When under job stress it’s not uncommon to get hunger pangs and hence there is not much time to have a proper meal, you tend to go for anything which is readily available and that stuff is mostly high in calories. So it best to have resolutions which are easy to follow and you can stick to them for the entire year.
So I have set up certain health resolutions for 2013 which I can stick to and also focus on my job (where there is no fix time to come back home and it often gets late)
Health Resolutions For 2013
- Have breakfast like a King , lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar
- Carry a small tiffin box containing dry fruits and nuts for the hunger pangs or protein bars and fibre bars are a great option
- Avoid elevators and escalators wherever possible
- Avoid deep-fried snacks and colas with drinks
- Minimum 4 days work-out in a week
- Have pizza only when you know that you can make time for some heavy work-out for the next two days
- Mostly eat vegetarian.
- Minimum sugar and no chocolates or ice-cream
- Make green tea a part of diet (minimum 2-3 cups in a day)
- Avoid taking a cab for small distances and walk instead.
- Not to sit idle in a place for more than 20 minutes
These simple resolutions can a bring about a great change in your health and will also make you feel more energetic. You can tune your resolutions according to your lifestyle but it’s important that you stick to them. I will try my level best to stick to my health resolutions for 2013.
Last night while going through my facebook wall I was amazed to see this picture of a gentleman with physical disability but a fine sculpted physique. Have you ever wondered what must have taken for this man to achieve this feat ? But defying all odds this man has made the impossible very mush possible for him.
If you have the will and determination you can make it possible for yourself as well. You might be suffering from a chronic disease or some other form of physical disability, but that does not mean you can’t give your body the right to stay fit. I feel so sorry for certain individuals who have a physical disability and on top of that their body has to bear the excess weight due to fat gain, obviously due to in-activeness. But I strongly feel that this situation is only because these individuals lack encouragement.
This man in the picture above is so fit that he can almost lead a normal life, like any healthy adult, I hope his prosthetic leg is making it possible to him to walk As a matter of fact he can enjoy a much better life that some people who do not have any physical disability but are troubled by problems arising due to excess weight on their bodies. He has turned his disability into powerful force for his body. As it is rightly said, “Health is Wealth”.
I am highly inspired by this man. So, what’s your excuse for not staying fit? Just have a look at this picture if you have any.
Modern day lifestyle can come with its own share of drawbacks. With more money in wallet these days, there seems to be an increasing tendency towards eating anything which appears to be mouth-watering. Its food, food and food everywhere, attracting you towards it and within no time it has found a way to your stomach. Without any doubt the waistlines are increasing globally like never before. This in turn is giving rise to diseases which are today known as lifestyle related disorders like obesity, diabetes, cardio vascular diseases, etc.
There are people who are willing to take some stringent measures to keep their protruding belly in check, but where is the time for all that? They have got a career to make, don’t they? They will work from morning till late in the evening and will spend the remaining time with their families. This cycle continues until you have realised that it has taken a toll on your health. Then there comes a very funny situation that you have got lots of money but no good health to enjoy it. This story lies true with millions of men and women worldwide.
The pleasure of having money can be even more greatly experienced when you are in the prime of your health. My blog is basically for the people like me who work hard in the office and find very little time to take care of their health. This blog will encourage you to take up a healthy lifestyle .
