Perfect health is the most incredible gift everyone receives from their birth, while very few take efforts to maintain it.

Are you preserving and nurturing that gift? Do you have the trait that a successfully healthy people own to preserve their health? If not, then what are those traits and what you can learn from them?

The trait a person has differentiates them from successfully healthy person to an unhealthy person. Everyone gets the same opportunity, resource and time but few adopt those practices that keep them healthy. The win they achieve isn’t limited to them, their family also receives the opportunity. They develop good traits and also inspire their family and friends.

Everyone receives equal opportunity but few grabs it. But there is no need for chaos, those opportunities are always there. Yet, grab it earlier before the unhealthy lifestyle leads to major damage. Earlier the opportunities are grabbed better will be the health.

Staying healthy is not a tough task, it’s just the disbelief. If you are planning to improve your health and feel that it will be tough, then give up that belief. Staying healthy is not tough, rather it's when health doesn’t support. Health issues, stress, medical bills, emotional crises are few reasons in the list that makes life tough. While a perfect health gives the opportunity to do anything you want.

Successfully healthy people possess few key traits that are learnable. Adopt those traits and you will get the same result.

1. They aren't obsessed with their weight

Change in weight is the biggest obsession these days and also considered as the indicator of health. Weight isn’t the right indicator of health, it’s just to check changes in body weight.

A healthy person isn’t obsessed with their weight to know about their health. They know about their health because their body signal’s through energy level and a sense of wellness from within. They focus on the right nourishment, stay active and practice mindfulness.

Obsession with weight is the biggest hurdle because it’s responsible for stress and creates urgency to take unnecessary steps.

Tip: Forget about losing weight, focus on improving health. Extra 1 to 2 pound won’t matter when you own a perfect health. Don’t let the obsession to lose weight create stressful contain.

2. They focus on habits

Habits are an important influencer of health. If you own healthier habit, you will enjoy perfect health for lifetime. While if not, you end up following unhealthy habits which aren’t good for your health.

Building and owning healthier habits is the core of staying healthy in the coming time. A habit may look small to be considered accountable but they nourish and prevents pitfalls. A habit is routine or behaviour that is repeated regularly and occurs subconsciously with the least conscious decision— the single reason that cut the stress to manage a routine, to stay healthy.

Tip: Instead of looking for quick fixes, focus on building habits. The time and effort you planned to dedicate on quick fixes— use on building habits. Focus on building healthier habits and it will reflect through a better health. The habits that keep you healthy will also promote weight loss, prevent weight gain and support fitness goal.

3. They focus on building a healthier lifestyle

No trick or quick fixes will keep you healthy. The reason behind perfect health is a healthier lifestyle. Healthy people’s build their health on the foundation of a healthier lifestyle. They follow a healthy lifestyle and that lifestyle nourishes them.

Healthier lifestyle doesn’t mean to quit everything and worry about health. It’s about living a balanced lifestyle in which they eat healthy, stay active, enjoy treat in control, keep a distance from quick fixes, focus on the rate of progress even its slow.

Quit pizza, ice cream, burgers, french fries, and other such food to stay healthy is a common recommendation. It’s tough to quit these foods suddenly. You can eat the food you like on weekend rather than daily while having control over the portion size. There are many healthy foods loaded with nutrients, taste, and flavor. If you eat varieties with a healthy balance, you get to enjoy food and keep lifestyle healthier.

Tip: Keep a perfect balance. Eat healthy while giving a day to enjoy outside food, while minding portion size. You don’t need a hardcore workout regime - light exercise like walking can do the trick.

4. They stay disciplined

Build a routine, dedicate on eating healthy, limit processed foods intake, never skip planned workout routine, etc. 

If you have planned anything, it’s important to follow that plan with dedication. Discipline to follow the planned routine is the most important trait. An excuse, can derail all your effort. Keep following healthier habits to stay healthy.

Tip: Whatever may be your goal, focus on small actions but stay persistent. Stay disciplined to follow the routine you have planned with no excuse.

5. They take help

A mentor can help to get better progress in less time. They can cut the time spent on trial and errors. They lend you their knowledge and experience, thus helping to make a smarter and faster decision.

Your friends, trainer, dietician, online forums are the place to take help. They will guide you and also motivate you to stay on track. Read books that help you build a healthier lifestyle — the core of staying healthy and losing unhealthy weight without compromising health.
