5 Good Fitness Habits You Should Start Today

by | Sep 10, 2022 | Fitness | 0 comments


When people think of fitness, they often focus on the physical benefits. But a healthy lifestyle is more than just having a six-pack and being able to do 100 pushups every day. It’s also about developing good fitness habits that will help you live longer and feel better.

Here are five things you can start doing today that will boost your physical and mental health.

Exercise even when you don’t want to

While the physical benefits are important, the mental and emotional benefits are just as vital. Exercise can improve your mood, help you sleep better, and even make you more productive at work.

So how do you stay motivated? It might be tempting to skip a workout if it’s been a long day or if it seems like there are other things that need to get done first. But if we choose not to exercise because of some obstacle—even something that seems reasonable—we risk letting it become an excuse for never exercising again. Instead, try finding ways to make exercise part of your daily routine so that your body will start recognizing it as part of life rather than an interruptive event every once in a while.

Eat balanced meals

Eating a balanced diet is important for your health, and it also helps you to feel better during workouts. You should include a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, fish, and dairy products in your daily meals. That doesn’t mean always eating healthy though! You can still enjoy some treats from time to time; just make sure they aren’t too sugary or fried.

Here are some tips for eating well:

  • Eat breakfast every day. Start the day with a healthy breakfast that contains carbohydrates (such as fruit or toast), protein (like eggs), and fat (like nuts). If you don’t have time for breakfast in the morning then try snacking on something nutritious instead such as an apple with peanut butter on it later on in the day – this will keep you feeling fuller for longer so that cravings do not kick in at lunchtime!
  • Avoid junk food! When we say junk food here we mean anything high in sugar or fat content but low in nutritional value – think cake or chocolate bars rather than apples! These types of foods provide little benefit nutritionally but can cause long-term damage if consumed regularly over time due to their high-calorie content so try not to eat them all together with other unhealthy snacks either!

Keep up your workout regimen

When you’re trying to get fit, consistency is key. It’s tempting to take a day off from training and binge-watch Netflix, but if you do this often enough, it can lead to burnout. Instead of skipping workouts here and there, try setting up a regular schedule that works best for you—whether that means working out five times per week or three times per week—and stick with it! If something comes up that prevents you from going to the gym one day (or two or three), don’t beat yourself up about it; just make sure not to let those missed sessions add up too much over time.

This is especially important if you’re exercising for the first time in years: start slow by committing yourself only once per week at first, then slowly build up from there. And when life gets busy? Make sure that going for walks around your neighborhood counts towards your exercise goals—it will keep things fun while also giving your body some movement every day!

Before Workout: 10 Things You Should Avoid

Sleep at least eight hours a night

You may have heard it time and time again, but it’s worth repeating: Sleep at least eight hours each night. We all know how vital sleep is to our health and well-being, but did you know that your body actually repairs itself while you sleep? The reason why we feel so rested after a good night’s rest is that our bodies went through some serious work while we were in dreamland.

Sleep also gives us the opportunity to process memories, learn new things, and consolidate information that we learned during the day. This can help improve performance as well as memory recall skills. So if you’re looking for another reason to get more shut-eye—there’s one!

Keep a fitness journal

You need to keep a fitness journal. You should write down what you’ve done in your workout and how it went, both good and bad. This is important because it helps you stay motivated and gives you an idea of where improvements can be made.

Keep track of:

  • What exercises you did do that day, with the amount of weight used for each one
  • How many sets and reps for each exercise (this may vary depending on your goals)
  • How long each set took (you can use timers on some apps)

Once this information is recorded, review it so that it’s fresh in your mind when you go back to the gym again or look up new workouts online. You might notice patterns like how certain exercises are feeling harder than others or that one workout was easier than another day’s workout, which will help with motivation as well as planning future routines!

Find the right balance for you.

Finding the right balance for you is important because, as we’ve mentioned before, it’s impossible to be perfect. You’ll never be able to do everything 100 percent all of the time. So don’t stress about trying to reach perfection and instead focus on finding a healthy balance between exercise and relaxation that works best for you and your lifestyle.

For example: If you are someone whose job requires a lot of sitting down (like most office jobs nowadays), then perhaps working out at a gym isn’t going to work well for your schedule or body type. Instead, try doing yoga in your neighborhood park twice a week and then walking around town on your days off from work. This will allow you time with friends while also giving both your mind and body some much-needed exercise!


The important thing to remember is that these are just a few of the many things you can do to be healthy, and they’re not meant to be set in stone. You can find your own balance between working out and relaxing or eating healthy foods and indulging once in a while. The important thing is finding what works for you—and doing it consistently!
