The Virtuous Cycle

February 1, 2013

Healthy Living

Wellness is the choice of assuming responsibility for the quality of your life. It starts with the conscious decision to shape a healthy living and to keep at it. Being healthy is a continuum. You’re either healthy or you’re not.
The good news is that once you start being healthy it’s very unlikely that you’re going back.
Leading a healthy lifestyle is a virtuous cycle.

Make the first step, and you’ll generate a success leading to another success which will generate still more successes in a chain of events that reinforces itself through a positive feedback loop. 

So start, don’t give up, and most importantly do not let any slips get you down!

    1. Turns out, it does :) "Physical exercise may be associated with reduced activation in food-responsive reward regions, which are in turn associated with reduced preferences for unhealthy high-calorie foods" (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24080950). Love this, IronYou. Cheers.
