I recently read an interesting article from Best Health Magazine about how food influences the way we feel, check it out here. Remember though, it is not just about what foods we put into our bodies, but staying fit and keeping a positive mental attitude as well. Sure you can crunch on as many carrot sticks as you want or drink down those protein shakes, but if your lifestyle is not serving you in a positive way, it is time to make some changes… Staying organized and managing your time will prevent unnecessary stress. Exercising regularly and making it a priority will also boost your mood. Read about Livestrong’s thoughts and ideas about that here.
The phrase, “JUST DO IT.” is trademarked by Nike®. The reason these three words are so well known is because they are not just a slogan, they are a lifestyle. Jumping out of your comfort zone and immersing yourself in something that will be a long-term benefit for you is what it is all about. Running, lifting weights, joining a yoga class, playing a sport (professionally or just as a hobby), will all affect your body, intellect, and will. It could be something as simple as taking the stairs instead of using the elevator. I find myself craving to go on a run at night because I am so stressed or overwhelmed with what the day has brought; by doing so, it instantly changes my mindset and relieves me from what is taking away from my positivity. It is freeing really, to “just do it.” A healthy lifestyle comes with what types of food we eat, but also having those “just do it” moments. This truly affects each of us, especially college students, and being able to fit all of this into our schedules is a necessity.
So, just go do it.
