To be healthy every day is not easy! Staying motivated to eat healthy can be even harder during this season. You smell BBQ every where, ice-cream or fresh soft drinks. All so tempting. And the big excuse that we can hear during summer ‘Oh it’s okay we are on vacation!’ Be careful! Bad habits can come back so quickly. But it’s a shame to quit so close to your goals because ‘winners never quit and quitters never win.’ So let’s keep motivated, no more excuses! In this article you’ll find all the best tips to stay healthy.
1. Set your goals
First you have to set realistic goals which are achievable. Make sure that you can adapt your lifestyle around meeting your goals. Also you have to make you goals specific with a short term goal such as running a 5K toward running a marathon. Your goal needs to be measurable.
2. Exercise as much as you can
As you know exercising is so good for your mind and your body. But also it can help you to eat more healthy by helping you to resist temptation and it reduces craving for junk food. When you start exercising you don’t want to eat junk food but healthy food to see the results of your workout.
3. Don’t get bored
Sometimes eating healthy can be boring…At CHI HQ we say NO! It’s not true now, and thanks to the internet, we can make some yummy and tasty recipes. And lucky as we are, we can find some really nice restaurants! Try new things, don’t stick on one kind of meal. By nature, humans need changes and variety to stay motivated.
4. Healthy snacks
Always bring a healthy snack with you before to go out. This will help you to stay away from the junk food and you won’t be hungry. Studies showed that if you go grocery with an empty stomach you are more tempting to buy junk food. So get a snack before going to the supermarket!

First thing that you have to remember, you are not on a diet but you choose to eat healthy! So enjoy eating all kinds of food, even your favourite foods (usually not healthy).
