The Habits To Quit If You Want To Be Healthy

Although it may seem like it, fit and healthy people aren’t just born that way with an innate sense of how to keep their bodies looking and feeling great. They have to learn, just like everyone else. The difference between the fittest people and those who just can’t get motivated to work out at all is the habits that are formed in their lives. Some habits are good, and some are bad, but all will have some kind of impact on your health. Here are the habits to quit if you want to be fit and healthy.

Being Sedentary

For many of us, a sedentary lifestyle is how we spent most of our days. We lie down all night, then get up and get in the car, or onto a train or bus where we sit down again, and in the case of those working a desk job, you will be sat down for the whole day. By the time we get home we’re usually exhausted by working all day, so may take it easy and be even more sedentary. All this sitting around is not good for our health; it causes issues with our circulation and our weight (which has a knock-on effect on everything else).

This sedentary way of living is a habit that needs to be broken if you want to be fit and healthy. That means going for a walk, a run, heading out to the gym, swimming, and doing anything and everything you can to get moving. This is especially important if you do sit at a desk all day. The more you exercise, the easier, and more enjoyable, it will become.

Poisoning Ourselves

Many of the worst habits that people pick up including smoking, drinking, and taking drugs, either prescription or illegal. Putting these products into our bodies on a regular basis is definitely not the way to keep fit and stay healthy. Our bodies will eventually rebel, shutting down and not working as they are meant to.

Quitting these habits can be difficult, but once it is done, you will be amazed at how much better you feel and how much more you can do when it comes to exercise and life in general. If you are finding it hard to quit drinking or drugs, speak to a professional who can help you. When it comes to smoking, try switching to vaping at This can be a fun and social alternative and may make quitting altogether a lot easier.   

Being Part Of The Group

Just because your friends and family are (or are not) doing something that doesn’t mean you have to follow suit. This habit of falling in with the crowd and agreeing to follow what everyone else is doing is something that can cause a lot of problems. If you know you want to go to the gym after work but everyone else you know is heading out to a bar, it can seem like the easiest path to take to just join them.

Breaking this habit and being your own person when you want and need to be is essential. Once you can forge your own path, you will be able to choose to do the things that make you healthier, including heading to the gym and not the bar, for example. It doesn’t matter what everyone else is doing – what matters is what you do.
