Starting to become healthy while you are young is important, it is not about just eating healthy, it’s an overall lifestyle change. You can take up an activity you like which helps you to be fit. It can be yoga, Zumba, dance fitness or even something simple as taking the steps without the lift. The important thing is that your fitness regime doesn’t have to be something boring. It can be what you like and gets your adrenaline thumping. In the same way healthy food doesn’t have to be boring or tasteless.
Most of the health wannabes have gotten so used to making up excuses and postponing their resolutions. Either it’s a “cheat day” for them where eventually everyday turns into a cheat meal/junk good, or maybe you think of taking up jogging, and the weather is too gloomy or too sunny. Excuses, excuses!
