At Vitruvian Wellness Center, we’re no strangers to the phrase “old habits die hard.” We know that changing routines and breaking out of old patterns can be slow, arduous, and may involve a series of complex stages.
Even so, as we age, adopting new and healthier habits is a critical element of finding personal wellness. As hard as it might be at first, committing to healthier habits and sticking with them will feel easier after a while, and may eventually be as difficult to give up as the unhealthier ones you left behind.
Whether you feel like a change is just around the bend or whether you’re already on the path to recovery, here’s how changing habits can improve the overall quality of your life.
Your Health Will Improve
Bar none, the single best reason to consider dropping unhealthy habits and replacing them with healthier ones is to improve the overall quality of your health. Some ways you can improve your health include:
- Shifting your diet away from processed foods and sugars
- Committing to daily and diverse forms of exercise
- Cutting back on or altogether cutting out the use of cigarettes, alcohol, and other vices
Committing to healthier habits means committing to better health. Many of the unhealthy habits that sap us of our wellness affect both our physical and mental states, so by committing to better habits that affect one, we are in turn supporting the other.
Your Focus and Fortitude Will Increase
Two central elements to changing habits that lead to improved health and wellness are setting goals and developing a personal plan to achieve them.
Creating a wellness plan requires a psychological mapping out of what motivates you, rewards you, and trips you up, none of which are the same person to person. All of this requires the hard and gradual work of digging inward and doing so exercises the parts of our psyche that help us build fortitude, focus, and willpower, all attributes that are rewarded in the long run.
You’ll Save Time and Money
We truly believe that optimal health is priceless, but we also know that no one likes getting medical bills or spending the extra time needed to heal from injuries and illnesses. In this way, steering towards healthier habits is a preventative measure that can keep you from needing to spend unreasonable amounts of money or time to try and fix what could have been avoided from the beginning.
