It’s no secret that a healthy lifestyle is beneficial for everyone. Creating a positive mental state, making healthy food choices, and partaking in regular physical activity are all major factors to your overall well-being. When you can maintain a balanced life that includes a healthy mind, body and soul, you’ll find that the external events of your life – all that stuff you can’t control – have much less effect on your happiness and success in life. Your health does not just make your body look better and help to ward off disease and disorders, it provides a solid foundation to the reality that you can create a better life and it doesn’t have anything to do with what is happening outside of you.
Losing weight is definitely a worthy goal of an exercise program, but it shouldn’t be your main goal. We know you have to expend 3,500 more calories per week than you take in to lose one pound. That breaks down into a 500-calorie-per-day deficit.
