These steps are more focused on you and your body. They will help you to understand that focusing on health means to do what is best for your body and mind.
To achieve good health it does not mean to push your body daily beyond the limits and end up eventually one day.
Rather it means to take things slowly and allow your body to adapt and grow.
1. Commit to yourself.
You are the most accountable to yourself.
So when it comes to starting the journey towards a healthier you, you should first commit to yourself about the positives changes that you intend to bring.
You should be accountable and dedicated to yourself for these changes and then and only then your journey will be consistent.
Take small steps towards them but those steps should be consistent and meaningful.
2. Eat healthy meals.
The most important part of health and fitness is the diet or food that you intake.
Many people stop eating or cut down their meals by huge quantities under the impression that this will help them manage their weight efficiently.
But that never works.
The biggest and the most important rule of diet is:
Do not make big changes to you diet.
You should eat everything in your meals but it should be a well-balanced meal.
It should not focus on only fats, proteins, or carbohydrates.
It should focus on each part of it and maintain the balance.
3. Exercise regularly.
Exercise is the best way to maintain your health.
You can choose from a variety of exercise types that best suits your ad your body for a healthy you.
Also, regularity or consistency is the key when it comes to exercise.
A general rule is that you should not let go 3 days in a row without doing an exercise.
So try to be as consistent and as regular, you can be with your exercises to get the most for your health.
4. Do the things that you enjoy.
The desire to achieve a healthy body is yours. So why to do things that you do not enjoy.
Having a healthy body should be fun and not stressful.
So, do the things that you enjoy. Plan, alter, and customize your routine to your own will and make the most of this journey towards better and healthier you.

5. Take care of your mind.
We have always stressed on the importance of mental health.
Taking care of your mind is as important as rather more important than taking care of your body.
So while you focus on your body, never forget about your mind.
You can take care of your mind in various ways, and the 7 such ways are already shared by us in this our post: 7 ways to maintain good mental health.
6. Rest is important too.
Exercising regularly is surely exhausting and draining.
So rest and take a break as and when you wish.
Understand this, in the very first step I said, you are committed to no one but yourself so you do not have to follow any rules.
Just do what suits you the best and also do not do anything when you feel exhausted and drained.
The whole intention of being healthy is self-care and taking rest when exhausted is also part of it.
But keep in mind not use this as an excuse or an escape method from your exercise.
7. Keep a good company.
It is rightly said that our surroundings have an impact on us and we should keep a good company if we want to grow because that impacts our mindset.
The same is true for health and exercise.
When you do it in a group or in a good company, the whole motive and intention boosts.

So if possible, try to get together with a group of people who are also committed towards the same healthy goal or at least find something that should help you to stay in the mood and inspired.
Having a pet around can also help and inspire you.
8. Positivity and gratitude.
While you exercise and work on your health, the focus should always be on positive outcomes.
Also, you should always be grateful for the results that you have got.
As I have already said, healthier you is a combination of both mental and physical health.
So this positivity and gratefulness will help you in working on the mindset and seeing the bright side of your efforts.
These are the 8 steps towards a healthier you.
