How Committed Are You to Your Health?

New diet fad.

New workout routine.

New lifestyle.

2020 is approaching and in less than a week, most of us will again start a health-and-fitness regimen to burn off what we stored from the holiday feasts. But until when can you stay committed?

It’s quite easy to start on a new something especially at the beginning of the year — but it’s rather difficult to keep the pace going and stay committed.

If you don’t commit to your health now, then when will you start taking your health seriously?

Being fit and healthy is not a fad. You do not do it just because it’s a new year and it’s one of your life-long new year’s resolutions. You do it because you are ready to make it a part of your life.

Do not wait until you get too old before you finally make time to do something to reach your health and fitness goals.

Please don’t get it wrong – there are older people who work out at the gym, do yoga, jog, or are engaged in sports activities. They are doing great! Perhaps they have started to lead a fit lifestyle since they were younger. Perhaps not. But the good thing is, they are there. They make time. They show up. And the better thing is, they do this almost regularly, if not every day.

When it comes to your health, you do not find time — you make time.

Being fit and healthy is definitely not a fad. You do not do it just because your friends do it. You do not do it just because it’s a new year and it is one of your life-long new year’s resolutions. You do not do it just because beach season is approaching and you want to flaunt a beach-ready body.

You do it because you want to. You do it because you need to. You do it because you are ready to commit yourself to it. You do it because you are ready to make it a part of your life.

Sadly, there’s a lot of people who complain about their bodies. Some complain about the different health issues that they experience. Most of them blame their age. Others blame their work and super busy schedules. But are they doing anything about it?

Your fitness goal should be fueled by a clear intention, and you should seal it with a life-long commitment.

If you are constantly discontented with your physical appearance, or if you have serious and persistent health issues, you really need to get out of your daily schedule and start changing your lifestyle to improve your health — physically, mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually. At first, it may be difficult to stay committed especially for those who claim to be very busy. However, when it comes to your health, you do not find time — you make time.

And the time to make time is now.

Health starts from the inside, it begins with the right mindset. And if you set your heart into it, it won’t be too difficult to commit yourself fully.

To be successful, your fitness goal should be fueled by a clear intention, and you should seal it with a life-long commitment.

How long do you think can you stay committed to your health?

  1. Well said. I’m trying to kick my sugar addiction. I’m in the process of developing my daily/monthly goals but I know it’s needed because I want to live a long life. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I agree completely… What you do now does affect tomorrow, and our health is one of those things. It’s important. I’ve talked to a lot of older people that are still moving and doing great. A lot of them have told me when you stop using it you’ll lose it.
