The tie between healthiness & happiness

Have you ever gone on the wild binge of finishing off a bag of potato chips and ended up feeling guilty afterwards? Or have you ever stayed up until the early morning hours studying for finals? What you put in your body and how you treat it can affect your well-being. It goes hand in hand with the idea of happiness and health. When you grab that bowl of salad, you are rewarding your body with nutrients and vitamins, but when it comes down to the chips, you might just be adding inches to your waistline. When you finally decide to go to that yoga session you have been putting off for months now, you are relieving your body of stress. Making small changes in your diet and habits can be better for you in the long run.

You Look Better

Eating healthy, not smoking, and de-stressing are all ways that could benefit your health and happiness. When you give your body the nutrients it thrives on, changes will show! Taking the stairs instead of that creaky elevator can give you a quick jolt of energy. Rather than stressing over assignments and projects, take a few minutes out of your day to do something you enjoy.

You Feel Better

Your health can most definitely impact the way you feel. When you look better, you feel better. All of the healthy eating and exercising will reveal itself. Sleeping and relaxing can do wonders for your skin and physical appearance. Sometimes, it just takes a little confidence booster from knowing that you are looking better while eating right!

You are Better

The more stress you are under, the more “wear and tear” you experience. What this essentially means is that you are overloading your body with unnecessary tension. Overtime, this begins to cause you to feel more fatigued and look more tired. It’s time to make a change. Whether it be a small one, or a complete makeover, your health and happiness will thank you in the long run.

What are you waiting for? Go on a hike, bake batches of delicious cookies, and just start relaxing
