Are you really in control of your life? Are you doing all you can to make the most out of it? The chances are you think you are but there will be general lifestyle choices that you are making each day holding you back. Some are obvious, some not so much. I thought I would share with you some of the common things to overcome if you want to take back control of your life and start living the healthy lifestyle you deserve.
Taking Your Power Back
Taking your power back – Cut out the addictions once and for all
One of the first things you might want to consider is any addictions you might have. Some might be really obvious, whereas others might not be so simple to overcome. Some of the obvious addictions we can all have would be alcohol and smoking. Some of which are easier to overcome by taking on other methods like vaping instead of smoking. Alcohol might be tougher, but getting rid of the temptation of having alcohol in your home could be a good start.
Other addictions we may not be aware of would be the addiction to our phones and the internet. Endlessly scrolling through social media and feeling like we are not even concentrating, sound familiar? Many of us will struggle with little addictions like this but it is noticing the behaviour and making the changes that can start to help you see improvement.
Focus on a balanced diet rather than something you can’t sustain – Taking Your Power Back
Diets are notoriously associated with things such as intermittent fasting, cutting out certain food groups, or just eating certain foods for a period of time to help with weight loss. But these diets cannot be sustained on a long-term basis.
So it is important for you to focus on your diet being more balanced than anything else. Thankfully there is an array of information online and also recipes to help you ensure that you eat all of the food groups that give you the nutrients and vitamins to function.

Taking your power back – exercise more frequently
Exercising is a great way to feel good, but often we can be lazy and choose not to be active in favour of driving somewhere or sitting down to relax. But exercise is great for your mindset as well as your lifestyle. It isn’t about joining a gym and attending each day, that might not fit your lifestyle and could be more of a hindrance than a pleasure. But choosing to be active each day is a great way to start.
A run or a brisk walk in the fresh air, walking to a shop instead of driving, an at-home workout on YouTube, or yoga in the garden. Small significant ways to be active can have you feeling at your best in no time at all and really help with taking your power back
Taking your power back – change your mindset
Finally, your mind is a powerful tool and it controls your actions. So a negative approach to life could be causing you more problems than good. Try and focus on a positive thought process and make some good changes to the way you think. Even the language you use could make the biggest difference in day-to-day conversation.
I hope these tips help you take more control of your life and help you on the path of taking your power back
