The biggest issue many people face when transforming their bad habits is that they don’t know how to move forward when obstacles are thrown into their lives. Many people let life get in the way and tend to start and stop with healthy habits and frequently recommit after they’ve slid back into fast-food habits. So how can you continue with a healthy lifestyle when life interrupts you?

Stressful life changes
There are certain things in life that are unavoidable. Moving, changing jobs, a death in the family, these obstacles happen and we lose control of our routines. Parents most often fall victim to busy times when children are involved in activities that claim more time during certain seasons throughout the year. Life is a revolving door of activities and appointments, but we treat many things as requirements and place exercising and eating healthy meals on the back burner.

The easiest way to stay with your routine is to make it flexible. Even if it feels as thought every moment is consumed with other tasks, there’s always time for a 15-minute walk. With a brisk walk on a daily basis you’ll reduce the feeling of mounting stress. There’s no need to get sweaty or even change your clothes, just grab your sneakers! Whether it’s between appointments, a walk around the block after dinner or during lunch, there’s always time to talk a walk and center your mind and body.

We all tend to fall victim to letting our relaxation time take over on vacation, even though this is the best time to ramp up our workout routines. Our ample free time during vacations is the best time to take advantage of being able to exercise at your leisure instead of forcing it into your busy work schedule. Whether you’re relaxing at a resort or heading to an amusement park, beginning your day with a quick workout will only elevate your vacation. Keeping to your exercise routine will help you stay in the swing of things when you get back to the “real world” after vacation.

Going Out to Dinner
One of the most difficult things to do is stick to your diet while eating out. It’s easy when you’re preparing your meals at home because you’re in control of spices, sauces, and high quality food. Whether you’re dining with friends and family or taking a client out for work, it’s tough to make sure you’re eating a nutritious meal. Nowadays, there are more options opening up for the health conscious consumer making your task of eating out less of a struggle. So if you’re left with the choice for dining out, try to choose something that you know offers healthy options. If your fellow dining companions are not game, then you need a plan B.  A Holistic Nutritionist can help decipher “menu clues” which will enable you to make healthy choices at your favorite dining establishments.  Furthermore, do not be shy!  It’s okay to ask how certain foods are prepared, request healthier cooking options, and ask your wait staff to put dressings, sauces, etc. on the side.

Living the Healthy Life
Part of choosing to live a healthier lifestyle is to live your life accordingly. Developing a desire to eat healthy food and exercise on a daily basis is key. If it’s something you want to do instead of something you have to do it’ll be easier to make healthy living part of your life.
