It’s day 7. It’s happening. Dude, you’re almost a week in this training.
We will take a minute and celebrate your success. You’ve surpassed the moment where people quit. They follow Day 1 and don’t show up the next day. But not you. You’re committed to change.
Showing up is a powerful act. Making time for self-care is an act of respecting oneself and it will change your life. So bravo on showing up and doing this training everyday.
Today is a rest day so you don’t have any workout routine. Instead, we will explore the benefits of the lifestyle you’re building.
A human body is built to be active. But the modern world has gifted us with a life filled with convenience. But the gift of convenience is killing humanity.
Do you know?
Millions of people die every year because of this single reason. Often, every death is not common but starts from a single path.
You might have heard about the rising rate of death because of a heart attack and stroke. Type 2 Diabetes doesn’t cause death but leads to health conditions those lead to death.
Obesity is also a factor reason for low quality and a shorter lifespan. Alzheimer’s and Dementia are also the reason for many deaths.
We, humans, are always seeking for an option that will lower the burden. Or ease the process. But the time-saving search can lead to an undesirable situation.
Today we will not talk about convenience food. Although you should check if those are in excess. If you are not over-dependent, then it’s good. If you’re overdependent, make sure it doesn’t ruin your health and happiness.
We will focus on convenience that made us inactive. This factor made us an inactive species — the species who were very active.
The life of students get inactive because of long hours of lecture and study time.
A life of working people be like a long hour of commute, and 8-9 hours of job sitting on desk.
Similar change repeats in others life, someway or other. These days people rarely prefer to walk even a walkable distance. We take the elevator even for 1 floor.
Technology and the modern lifestyle have provided convenience. But it doesn’t provide what our body demand — an active lifestyle to keep a stronger and healthy body.
The modern lifestyle gave human convenience but took away the quality of life. We will die, it’s not changeable. Yet we all can make sure that we and people we care, have the lowest risk of health problem.
Why leave time decide our fate when we can make it better with small changes.
The goal of this 30 day challenge is to get you started. Once you get started, you can figure out better strategies later. But there will be no improvement when you don’t get started.
So let’s discuss the solution.
A fitness routine and an active lifestyle can break unhealthy habits of convenience. These two will keep you in movement, which our body likes and need.
The routine will award you with benefits like.
1. Weight Loss and Weight Management
You know that, fitness routine helps to lose weight. But there is one more important things it do — helps in weight maintenance with ease.
Every achievement goes to waste when it’s not preserved. You might have struggled hard, gave every effort to lose weight but it won’t matter if it doesn’t stay.
By choosing a fitness routine you will get faster and lasting results. Fitness routine will boost weight loss, increase strength and vitality.
There are many saying that continuous sitting can do more damage than smoking. The phrase might look like a hype, but it’s a real deal. If you stick to a fitness regime but avoid an active lifestyle, you won’t get the best from your routine.
While another thing, major people take active lifestyle and fitness routine lightly. They don’t give enough priority to it like they give priority to dieting.
Dieting is popular, but in the end, everyone knows it leads to a consistent struggle. Struggle to make changes — body face setback and throw people into a difficult situation leading to failure. These failure leads to loss of hope.
If you want to failure proof your eating routine — you should try an active lifestyle with dietary changes.
Don’t believe me…
Here’s a stronger reason.
There was 2680 participant who went on a 15-week training of 30-minute aerobic exercise for 3 times per week.
Before starting, they were recommended not to make any changes in their diet. Within a few weeks, it was found that people choose lean meat, fruits, and vegetables. They started to limit soda and other unhealthy food consumption.
It’s all due to dopamine release and appetite-regulating hormone. Food high in sugar, fat, and salt is the reason for dopamine release which makes us overeat them. But when you get those from fitness routine, you will enjoy dopamine guilt-free.
Fitness routine cut stress level a reason you don’t need a never-ending supply of dopamine to calm you down.
2. Longer and Quality Life
Heart disease, stroke, and osteoporosis are the reasons for a lower life span and quality life. Healthy lifestyle also provides protection against many types of cancer.
Loss of strength starts between the age of 30 and 70 not due to aging but due to an inactive lifestyle. With an active lifestyle and fitness routine, you stay protected from such health conditions ensuring a quality life.
3. Mental Health
Fitness has a great impact on mental health. Stress, depression, and anxiety makes life tough. It is a key reason for unhealthy lifestyle changes and eating habits.
If you’re dealing with such conditions, go get some fresh air — go for a walk, or you can try cycling or swimming.
Your stress will lower. Also, take care that you get enough sleep. You will feel better without any medication. The benefit isn’t limited to low stress. You can get smarter because exercise can help you build a bigger and better brain. It increases the brain’s grey and white matter.
4. You Learn to Keep Yourself and Your Family Healthy
Concluding with the benefits. I can list every small detail, but those aren’t necessary as you can feel them. The last one is the best and most important benefit.
Everyone wants their life to be better giving them complete power to live a better life. But along that we all wish that everyone in our family and people we care should be healthy.
By adopting an active lifestyle, you learn everything essential to keep yourself healthy. As you see the result, you will be able to replicate the same in your family and friends. By taking care of a few people you will start a chain that will spread.
