The term “health” usually brings to mind the physical body and its condition. However, some of the fittest athletes, nutritionists, or overall health nuts, can have completely unhealthy behaviors. Psychological aspects and lifestyle make a great impact on how somebody feels, and their levels of motivation or lack thereof.

The lifestyle of an average adult or young adult is generally not very involved. A daily routine is hard to get out of, and people find themselves simply going through the motions, eating what they want, and wasting free time on their electronics. On the other end of the spectrum, there are the driven, determined, ambitious people that practically rule the world over all the lazy ones. How are they so enthusiastic about getting things done?

Eating a well-balanced diet and exercising regularly is always a good place to start. Many times participants of diets such as the whole 30 or gluten-free boast that a major effect of their diet is an overall good feeling and motivation. According to a psychology blogger, Kendra Cherry, setting clear goals, trying new things, and rewarding yourself are all ways to keep motivated. Oftentimes going outside and keeping busy will also benefit people. Sometimes doing a couple push-ups after you wake up, or reading a book in the middle of a busy day has a great influence. The main key is to step outside of you comfort zone, and put in a little extra work for big results.
