I Too Am Health Conscious
About half a year ago was when a friend of mine introduced me to running. Since those were the days that I'm also half a year removed from being solely employed for a company, I really didn't have many friends. Its one downfall of people who rely on online freelancing to earn a living, you'll have to actively seek out people to be social with. Otherwise, you can really turn into a hermit inside your home or apartment.
So there I was, out of shape and letting all my social skills drift. Perhaps it was my friend's intention to get me into a much active lifestyle or maybe it's just coincidence, I don't know because I haven't asked him yet.
Whatever the case is, running has made me appreciate health. It's as simple as that. Sure there will be folks who's going to throw some arguments at you abour running and endurance sports in general, but really, you have to listen more to those who's enjoying it. Their opinions about running should be magnified enough for one to wash out the voices of two pessimists.
Let me recount how my life is now three times as fun because with my friends' help, my outlook on being healthy has totally turned around.
One argument that you would often hear, and I've shared this one too previously, is that being healthy takes too much time out of your day before it becomes effective. This is true, but if you dig a little deeper, there's more out of this statement that would actually benefit endurance sports more. Although activities like running does take a huge chunk of one's time, the benefits you'll gain by being physically fit far outweighs the limits naysayers are spewing. A healthy person does his work more efficiently because he's more likely to have better focus, more active brain cells, improved posture, positive thinking, all because he engages in endurance sports. Remember what having a healthy lifestyle can give you and how it positively affects your overall performance, which includes work. Thus, you don't even have to spend as much time with your duties. Because you simply breeze through them faster if you're at tiptop shape.
Another wrangling thrown out by people who probably haven't even experience being health conscious yet is that endurance sports, like running, can be dangerous. While some parts again of that statement is true, do not easily be discouraged. Like most lessons in life, we have to be critical and not readily accept things as factual. Do not forget that being a sack of potato lying around during your weekends has its downsides as well. Something as simple as coffee has its dark and helpful sides. Too much caffeine is bad for you, but with proper intake, some form of coffee has garcinia cambogia, which does help a person to become fit too.
I hope that your takeaway from this article is for you to have the tendency to balance things. Do not get easily discouraged by people who tell you not to do activities just because they haven't tried it themselves.
