Christmas is a few days away now, which means preparations are probably reaching their climax. This year, if you want to avoid one of the pitfalls of the most wonderful time of the year, which is the kind of over-indulgence that will have you piling on the pounds, you have to work a health-conscious approach into your Christmas planning.
Chances are you can probably already detect the pattern building up to that precarious place where the madness of the season has you believing it’s okay to overdo pretty much everything. Resolve to take control immediately. Don’t put things off a day longer, because the aim is to get one over the challenging task of negating what is likely a set of bad habits built up over pretty much your entire life!
You do not want to leave it until the New Year to try and gain control of your health, going through that familiar process of making New Year’s resolutions you just know you’re not going to see all the way through.
An overall lifestyle adjustment
What does something like buying only the best e cig on the market available to you have to do with the successful avoidance of a festive period that deals a serious blow to your weight and health? It’s simple really and doesn’t only specifically have something to do with smoking.
It’s a matter of taking a bigger-picture approach to living better all-round. It’s about resolving to enjoy a better quality of life, in all the composite areas of your life and not just directly targeting your weight as a measure of your health.
By going through the process of hunting down the best deal on items which make up the elements of your lifestyle, such as comparing pod mods on their price-to-quality ratio, you are training yourself to always put a bit of thought into every single decision you make.
It gets easier with time and becomes second nature.
Eventually you’ll get to a point where you do it without even thinking about it.
So, in addition to targeting specific habits to switch up and contribute to a healthier way of life, such as swapping cigarettes for vapes, embrace the underlying learning process that helps you construct the habit of always seeking to make the best decision.
When you go out shopping for cooking ingredients, for instance, what are the best of these ingredients can you get? Organically raised turkey, perhaps, with leaner meat and less fat? Dessert which has a higher nutritional value and less processed ingredients?
If you have to dash to the store, why not take a walk instead of jumping into your car? Or perhaps cycle the distance there and back.
Select fun holiday activities which require a bit more of a physical engagement and perhaps try to use those as sparks for a more active, physical lifestyle going forward and into your regular life, to be maintained or stretched further once the festive cheer has come and gone…
You’ll find that it’s a lot easier than you think, but requires a sustained effort of making small adjustments in the very intricate lifestyle elements of your life. It all adds up rather beautifully.
