Every New Year we promise ourselves to start a new life, start to learn new things, go to gym more often and become more active. Unfortunately, we usually fail to do it because of the lifestyle we are used to and because of our habits that we cannot manage to change. But if we want to become more successful and achieve better results in our life, we have to become free of bad habits! So, what are they?
Being a couch potato
It is good to have some rest lying on your couch and doing nothing, but some people spend days lying there. A new study showed that preadipocyte cells (cells that contribute to the formation of fat) turn into fat cells faster and crank out even more fat if you are just lying on your couch. Being inactive, forces your body to produce more fat cells, spread them out and create good atmosphere for their growing. Moreover, it is proved that such changes can not be stopped by doing exercises. And it means that you cannot justify yourself spending hours in front of your TV and promising that you will work out in a gym tomorrow. In this case, even if you spend some hours doing exercises, you will not manage to stop your cells from turning into fat cells. (For more information visit).
Also, it is proved that sitting in front of the television increases the risk of heart problems. It is stated that people who spend more than two hours watching television are more likely to get a heart disease in comparison with those who spend less time staring at a TV screen.
Trying to lose weight sticking to an unbalanced diet
Really often when we want to lose weight, we decide to exclude every food that contains any fat or carbohydrates from our ration. We exhaust our bodies and our mind eating only fruits or vegetables that we think will give us perfect shape. And we end up standing in front our fridge at night and deciding which part of a cake we will eat next. (For more information visit). And then we blame ourselves for such awful behavior, for the fact that we failed to lose some weight again. But we have to blame not our willpower but the diet itself. It is almost impossible to follow such a strict diet, because our body does not get enough protein, fat and carbohydrates it needs for proper functioning.
If you want to lose extra weight it is a good idea to ask a nutritionist to create a healthy and balanced diet for you. In this case your body will get enough nutrients and you will not feel bad or unbearably tired. On the contrary, you will feel much better and much healthier.
Envying other people
We use social networking sites every day and often when we open Instagram or Facebook we see posts of our friends, who we believe are more successful than we are. We envy them. This feeling makes us think worse about ourselves, our achievements and our lives in general. And as a result, these thoughts cause depression.
If you want to become successful you have to stop envying other people, because comparing yourself with other people you will feel miserable. You should find things that inspire you to move on and change your life for the best, but not focus on the things that make you feel sad and depressed. The grass in your neighbor’s garden may seem greener, but in fact it is not so. Your neighbor may have the same problems as you do and even worse.
Every time we want to change our life we meet some obstacles that does not let us do it. They are our habits. Such habits do not help us to become better, so, we have to get rid of them. And in this situation we may achieve the things that we want and that we deserve.
