The Importance of a Healthy Lifestyle

Recently, I have begun my journey towards living a more healthy lifestyle. I have been eating whole grains, a ton of fiber, veggies and fruits, and proteins. Learning how to eat right was definitely not on my mind when I was getting ready for school, but let me tell you why living healthy while you’re in school is so important.

I have been known to smoke, have the occasional drink, and am most notorious for grabbing things to eat on the go and on the cheap. Being in grad school is hard work! You’re constantly busy with classes, practicum, homework, friends, and family. It can be hard to think about adding time in to prepare a good meal for yourself. However, let me tell you how this past week has been with my new healthy eating choices.

By taking the time to make eggs and whole wheat toast for breakfast, packing snacks and a filling lunch that includes protein, veggies, and carbs for my school day or practicum site, and then coming home at night to grill some chicken with mixed vegetables, I have had so much energy! I focus better in class and feel more confident in my homework. Including water has taken the place of most caffeinated beverages. I can also attest to the fact that my move and disposition has improved greatly. I feel more optimistic and cheery!  I also feel like I have more time to do household tasks like laundry or dusting. I know that time hasn’t been added to my day, but the energy do things on my to do list after a long day is amazing! I encourage everyone to try this and see how they feel at the end of just one week, even just one day. Cut the cigarettes and alcoholic drinks and feel even better! If you include a walk for 30 minutes too, you’ll feel like a superstar! I look forward to hearing any other success stories by making this change!

I'm living in the Boston area and going to Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology to get my Masters in Counseling Psychology. I moved to Boston from Nampa, ID where I've spent most of my life. I'm married to the love of my life and best friend, Keith. I've spent time working in the mental health care field and am ready to get my Masters so that I can work hopefully somewhere in Community Mental Health. I'm so excited to start this journey and am very optimistic about where it will take me! I love going for walks with friends, drinking mass amounts of coffee, baking and cooking, spending time with family, watching movies, and dying/cutting/doing crazy things with my hair (I think I'm a hair-o-holic! haha). This blog is basically an account of my journey and I hope that you enjoy the tales from this journey!

    Hi,
    The toughest thing in the world is to change your ways and then stick to them indefinitely. Most people fall back into the old way fairly quickly. So please watch for that and try to change your lifestyle and make it last. Then you will truly see the difference in the later years.

  11. Hi,
    I started a similar process 3 years ago, after I was really sick for over a 6 months. The DR’s couldn’t really help. Today thanks to this nutritional change I am 95 % healthy. The only habit I can’t get rid off is drinking coffee. Do you have any suggestions?

  12. Bettie says:

    I usually do not write a great deal of remarks,
    but i did some searching and wound up here The Importance of a Healthy Lifestyle | MSPP Student Voices.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is it just me or does it look like a few of the responses come across as if they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I’d
    like to follow anything fresh you have to post.

    Could you list of all of all your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  13. manish says:

    Having a well-balanced, healthy diet in addition to regular exercise is critical especially as I get older. However, I do miss the good old days of eating whatever I wanted! Nevertheless, there are so many tasty foods that are nutritious as well.

  14. Oh, forgot to mention – any tips on healthy eating for the busy life are greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

  15. I am definately relaying to what you say. Although I smoke and drank my way through University, no at 34 health care is really on my mind. I stopped smoking, cut back drinking and try to lead healthy life with a lot of excercising but battling healthy eating is not where I want it to be yet… Sitting all day, creating turnkey websites does not help either :)
    Hope to get better.

  16. Jery Jhons says:

    As a person who enjoys exercising on a daily basis, I found this article interesting. People have different exercise needs depending on family history, age, weight, etc but it was interesting to me that each source offered a different recommended time and claimed different results. Perhaps looking further into the research of each study would provide insights as to why they differ.

  17. John says:

    Great article I love trying to keep healthy but the temptation and addicitions to smoking are just to powerful. :(

  18. RedJoker says:

    I love reading your great site.

    7c1Im just curious on the views of other pelpoe about the pet trade on sugar gliders.I do own sugar gliders, but there not my pets I rescue them from pelpoe who have no clue what there doing! I would love to see them in australia, gliding across the tree tops, and being free of cages but its too lait for these guys instead I try to simulate what habitat they would have in the wild, I have a very large rec room in my home that I converted to a suggie paradice, its wonderful, it has live trees, a real rock wall that expands across a whole wall, a costom waterfall, theres even a run that gose outside for the summer months. The room has VERY high seelings so theres loads of room to glide, i have noticed that they are MUCH happier now then they were in there cages.I do believe they should be in there natural habitat and I have simulated there climate as best as possible, im just wondering what other pelpoes views are on them being pets?(PS: I know pelpoe are going to say if there happy and healthy there fine but dont you think they should be where they belong? gliding across trees, being free, sure yours are happy but they have never had the chance to live the life of a wild glider so they dont know on what there missing out on.)im not asking HOW TO OWN A SUGAR GLIDER im asking your opinion on having them as pets!!!are you agenst them being pets or do you LIKE it?im also planning on moving to Australia once im old enough, I think its a beautiful place to live! maby if I move over there I will get a ermit and bring my suggs akong with me, if i did I would build a HUGE outdoor habitat so they could interact with other gliders!maby, if it were possible I could rehabilitate them into the wild, that woudl be the coolest thing ever.

  27. It’s hard to start a maintain a healthier lifestyle, but if you do, the results can be amazing even in the short term. Thanks.

  28. Covergreen says:

    Yes having a healthy lifestyle is very important if you wan to live happy and sickness free. This write-up is worth reading for. I’m fat and I’m finding ways on how to reduce it and I keep learning things from this site.

  29. By eating healthy is a great way to stay healthy and lean.

  30. Your discussion was very interesting, I must apply some of your thoughts to my thinking

  31. I would say give up smoking and drinking pop are the two things that can change someone’s life drastically for the better. Exercise is important, but i think a healthier diet is much more important.

  32. I love reading stories like these because they provide the motivation that most of us lack. It just shows that success can be achieved with baby steps instead of drastic diet and exercise plans.

  33. When you’re no more sprinting, take off your moving shoes as well as pile on something comfy. In the real world with a considerably less misery some diet, you possibly can walk. It’s not just that low-carb is not comfortable and also unworkable. Even if you can stick to this type of diet program for enough time to observe results, it’s not healthful. You can be affordable on power, have difficulty thinking, and then throw your body into distress. You will want complex carb like potatoes as well as rice for long term strength to overcome your trusty day time, and also plain carb similar to organic fruit to offer you a boost before together with after your weight loss exercises. Let’s not forget that vegetables are Low Carb Snacks you need to stay frequent and attain vitamin supplements you simply can’t get somewhere else.

  34. It is amazing how quickly our bodies recover and become healthier and lose excess weight just by making a few changes to what we eat and taking some exercise.

  35. Good diet and exercise has helped me stop yo-yoing up and down on the scale. Thanks.

  36. Daniel,
    You could try Dandelion coffee as a coffee alternative, it’s dry powdered dandelion root which you use the same way as instant coffee, just add hot water and milk. It’s not actually that bad. You can get it in main health food shops.

  39. You are what you eat explains everything.

  40. Thanks for a great article. It is often said that “You are what you eat”. Stay fit, healthy and focussed, with energy to spare by taking the time to prepare and eat fresh fruit and vegetables and drink plenty of water. Of course, avoid sodas and other sugary drinks, don’t smoke and exercise regularly. Stay healthy.

  46. That’s a really inspirational story and thank you for sharing with everyone. It is truly amazing how quickly our bodies respond to a few healthy diet and lifestyle changes. Also, as you say, not only do we have more energy, look better but we also feel betterWhen I put on weight or fee tired, I always make a few changes like eat more whole foods, swap refined carbs to wholemeal foods, eat more low fat protein, salads, fruit and water. I also steam vegetables and rice, bbq grill meat and fish and load up my plate with loads of vegetables. I also cut down on sugar and fat and these changes make a huge positive difference, every time.

  64. Very true when you eat healthy food it helps you to focus more at school or work.

  65. You are so right! I changed my diet to something similar and the results were amazing! Thanks.

  66. Natural foods are always best, of course. In the past here have been some questions raised about coffee and its effect on the body, but the answer is always: it’s about quantity. Anything in excess is inadviseable, and it’s always best to avoid manufactured coffees such as instant as opposed to the real thing.

    I agree with you 100%. We need to take care of our body. Everybody lives busy lifes, but if we do not take care of our body while we are young, we will suffer the consequences later. It’s also important to eat high quality food and take vitamins to supply our body what is lacking from our eating habits.

  101. Rainer says:

    I love reading your great site.
    Keep on this informative writing.
    Thanks

  102. What I have found, and I am sure this is common to many people, is that a healthy diet as well as a regular exercise regimen has become far more important to me as I get older. It’s a shame we wait until we’re middle-aged before we start to consider it.

  103. Tongie says:

    I agree with this post… Not only eating foods is beneficial to our body but also workout, is essential for the body as well. Do not forget that household tasks are all the exercise things…. have a healthy life ^^

  104. I’m glad that you’re getting on a healthier lifestyle drive. How has it been going for you? Have you managed to stay on the drive? I heard somewhere that you have to keep something going for 6 weeks before it becomes routine. I’m 3 weeks into a healthy living and I’m finding it jard to get motivated to get moving at the gym and to choose the right food to.

  105. Yeah! I enjoyed reading this blog, it gives me an idea in planning my healthy lifestyle by following the tips that you’ve shared with us. Thanks for this very informative post.

  106. Dave says:

    I have just started to try to improve my lifestyle. Its mainly focused around drinking less and eating healthier. I have just read the “4 hour body” by Tim Ferris, if you have heard of it, and I’m attempting to follow what he has suggested. This is dropping so called ‘bad’ carbs. So anything that is refined or any white carbs, this include potatoes. You replaced your carbs by increasing the good carbs and protein. So eating more bean and tofu for me. What I like about this approach is that you can eat whatever you like as long as it fits into this ethos and once a week you are allow to go crazy and eat whatever you like. I’ve found that on these days the things I’ve been craving don’t actually taste that good anyway.

    Its a different approach that I’ve not seen before but after 2 weeks I’m losing a little fat (I hope)

    Nice post, very informative. Many people today are left with no other options but to look for the safer methods toward treating certain diseases and to keep the body healthy. Use of medications is most of the time associated with various side effects that can at times lead to other more serious health problems.

    In my case, intake of Allupurinol to treat gout lead to increase in BUN, SGOT, and creatinine. Fortunately, there are natural cures for gout ( http://naturalcuresforgout.info ) that are effective and safe.

  108. Nice read. I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. He just bought me lunch because I found it for him! Thus let me rephrase: Thanks for lunch!

    Do have a look at Chia Seeds, Easy to find in any health food shop, they are tiny tasteless seeds that are hign in protien, omega3 oils, and fibre – and have 8 times the amount of calcium that milk has – and other vitamins and minerals too. They are cheap and last a long time in the cupboard too. very good for managing eliminating hunger and keeping the blood sugar low – a miracle food really.

    I’m very happy to read this. This is the type of details that needs to be given and not the accidental misinformation that is at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this best blog.

  117. I agree with Vicki Mah! I was just looking for this information for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the Google’s issue that does not rank this kind of informative sites closer to the top. Generally the top websites are full of garbage.

    Healthy lifestyles can be defined as collective patterns of health-related behaviour, based on choices made from available options. This suggests that health is related to choice of lifestyle.

  118. Hey Marc and everyone – I found your comment by doing a search on Google for “how to garden”. So, I thought I would drop in to let readers know that I agree. Organic (growing naturally) is a very healthy way to eat, but organic food is so expensive in the grocery store. Growing your own food is one way to both save money and also be sure what you’re eating is safe – gardeners control where the water for the crop comes from as well as any amendments to the soil. I author a how to garden blog named Gardens Inspired. Everyone is invited to check out the information available there. Regards ~

    Foods with lots of protein, mixed vegetables rich with vitamins and minerals is enough for me to have so much energy in my everyday works. With the help of exercise every morning. :)

  120. I agree re: healthy living, it’s important to remember your are forming habits and making something a habit takes time. e.g. going for a run/walk every day takes effort and discipline for some time until it becomes part of your routine and you don’t even think about it.

    Isn’t it amazing how your body responds when you eat healthy foods and exercise. A lot of the food that we consume today was not meant to be eaten by humans. A good rule of thumb is that if it does not grow naturally in the garden then you may not want to eat it. I also drink green smoothies with kale, strawberries and banana as a great pick me up when I need a boost of energy!

    I appreciate your blog because any share that recommends a healthy life style and also gives examples of it helps the individual and the world.
    I, too, practice healthy living- I eat only organic foods and ingredients and try to have a “clean” diet (no GMO, additives, gluten-free, artificial coloring, etc). I do yoga and get my cardio in.
    Like you, I get more energy and focus this way.
    One thing that I am real strong about for myself is consciousness living. With spiritual consciousness or meditating- this can do wonders for staying healthy and clear, focused, and eliminating the “monkey mind chatter”.
    Thank you for sharing, I enjoyed your blog and best wishes for you with your grad school studies..
