4 Pillars of a Sustainable Healthy Lifestyle

After working with several women and being on my own healthy living journey, I’ve identified 4 areas, really they are the pillars and foundation, for living a sustainable healthy lifestyle.  

Today I’ll provide the overview and over the next few weeks, I’ll go into more detail about each of the areas and how you can implement them into your daily living.  

I’ve been on a healthy living journey my entire life.  However, I haven’t always gone about it in a healthy way.  I got all the knowledge…..certified Fitour group fitness instructor, followed Weight Watchers, used Calorie King faithfully, even went the Beachbody route for awhile, etc.  But I got obsessive about all of it.  However, I found some freedom from those numbers and specific plans and began working with other women to help them implement healthy living strategies.  

What I learned over time is that there are 4 areas that we need to focus on daily to live a sustainable healthy life.  Those 4 areas are:

But the thing is, you have to find how the implementation is going to look in your own life.  You are unique.  It doesn’t happen overnight, and it’s more involved than saying a prayer, eating the right food, exercising and drinking water.  

You have to spend time learning what the right food is for you.  What exercise you like to do and that your body responds to.  Everyone’s water requirement is different.  How much do you need?  And faith.  It is the most important piece to this puzzle and it’s one that is too often overlooked.  

Over the next few weeks I’m going to break these down and help you figure out the plan that is right for you.  

Are you ready?  Please be sure you are following me on social media, especially Facebook and Instagram.  My posts all point back to one of these 4 pillars and give you tips and insight into living a healthy life that is sustainable.  Your life won’t look like mine, but you’ll get a glimpse into what it takes and what it looks like to live this all out.  I’m not perfect.  I don’t get it right all the time.  But that’s the thing.  A  healthy life that is sustainable isn’t one that’s perfect.  It’s one that’s livable.  No more starting and stopping a plan or program.  

When you begin to implement these things it will become a natural part of the way you live.

    Marsha this is so right on. We are all unique. Not a one size fits all. It is so easy to do what is easy. It takes effort on our part to figure ourselves out and what is right for us to achieve and sustain a healthy life style. I believe through prayer and being in the word I will start to uncover what is below the surface in me that has held me back most of my life to really feel comfortable in my on skin. Thank you for your encouragement. God bless you always.
