Habits To Quit So You Can Start Living Your Best Life

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 healthy and live your best life!

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 are usually exhausted by working all day, so may take it easy and be even more sedentary. All this sitting around is not good for health. This sedentary way of living is a habit that needs to be broken if you want to be healthy. That means maybe 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 more comfortable, 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 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, many people decide to switch to a vape to help them with the transition. If this is a choice that you feel you need to make, you can find a range of vape juice flavors available to make the transition a little easier.

Low Self Esteem

Having low self-confidence and esteem can really get in the way of being our best selves. When we are not feeling our best mentally, we often feel like we want to curl up inside, make poor choices and shut ourselves off from the world. While this is perfectly fine once in a while, in the long term, it is not going to help either your physical or mental health. Being confident in yourself means you are more likely to go out, face the world and get your life together!

Making Poor Diet Decisions


While we all love takeout or slice of cake, but it isn’t always the healthiest thing we can do for our body. Junk food is okay if eaten in moderation and as part of a healthy, balanced diet. We all know the most significant effect of eating too much junk food - we put on weight. But did you know that is not the only side effect?  Too much saturated fat can clog arteries and lead to high blood pressure and increased risks of heart attacks, heart disease and strokes. For a balanced diet, to keep you healthy on both the inside and the outside, try to eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day, oily fish to help boost our mental energy and plenty of protein to keep us feeling full and give us energy. Work on limiting the amount of fat, sugar and salt in your diet, and do not forget to check the labels of processed foods. For example, a jar of basic tomato pasta sauce can contain as many as eight teaspoons of sugar. Try making your own foods from scratch as often as possible and steer clear of processed food.

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 comply with what everyone else is doing is something that can cause a lot of problems.  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 are best for you. It does not matter what everyone else is doing – what matters is what you do.

Not Getting Enough Sleep

Getting enough sleep is one of the most important things we can do for our body. Try to aim for between eight and ten hours of quality sleep every night. If you are struggling to fall asleep, reduce the amount of caffeine that you drink, switch off screens at least an hour before bedtime and take a warm bath to relax your body and your mind.

By implementing some of these changes, you will soon begin to feel happier and healthier in no time!
