It can be argued that the in the World today many people are searching for help with weight loss, fitness and improving energy levels. Busy lives, unhealthy temptations, lack of regular exercise, lack of sun and lethargy can all sabotage our efforts to be healthy.
It can be hard to make healthy eating choices when we are bombarded with television commercials advertising unhealthy foods. In our home we call these foods ‘naughty’. In our supermarkets cakes, sweets, crisps and an array of unhealthy foods adorn the shelves. We are offered two for one deals and half price on many items so we end up filling our baskets with foods that offer no nutritional value and can in fact harm our health in the long term.
When our energies are low we reach for a quick fix like a bar of chocolate, a cup of coffee or a packet of crisps. But these highs are short lived as the artificial high comes crashing down and we reach for the next pick me up again. In the long term these foods can make us put on weight and can even lead to diseases like diabetes.
All these high sugar and salt foods are annihilating out taste buds. So it becomes increasingly hard for us to eat the apple instead of the cake. It is much harder to exercise when we haven’t got any energy so eating the wrong foods can also sabotage our fitness efforts. It is important to try and break this destructive cycle.
So what can we do?
It would probably help if we were taken away from the environment we live in and be transported to somewhere super healthy. This way we would be free from our daily stresses that cause us to make bad food choices and not to exercise. This super health haven could hopefully inspire and motivate us to make better health choices. Which we could then bring home with us and the knowledge we have gained would be put to good use.
So do these types of healthy havens exist?
There are health and fitness holidays, detox spas and centres, fitness boot camps and fitness retreats. These types of places will offer diet and weight loss advice and fitness activities. Here you will be surrounded by like minded people and it will be much easier to stick to a healthy eating a plan and exercise schedule. After one of these holidays you would expect to lose weight, feel fitter and come away feeling refreshed and renewed. The knowledge gained can be taken home so you can continue with your new healthy lifestyle. Visiting one of these places could be the kick start that you need and away of you starting a new healthy lifestyle. These types of health and fitness holidays and detox resorts are all over the World.
During your research look for a company that has good testimonials and a good web site. Look at the photos do they look like real people? Check out their Facebook page and check that the holiday is current and they are uploading up to date information about their holiday. You can also see if they have a You Tube channel so you can see what type of activities they get up to. Also make sure that their fitness team are experienced and qualified. Do some investigative work on Google to see what is an offer.
To your good health and happiness.
