First brought to life by Alfred Ader, lifestyle has become more than just a word thrown around in conversations and instead, has indeed taken root in our lives because it is, after all, the backbone of the establishment thereof. But what is a lifestyle? Lifestyle, in simple terms, is how you as a person choose to live.
What Is Your Lifestyle?
Do you have interests that are either similar or unique to what other people hold in the same regards? What about opinions; do you ever look at things or situations and have your idea or opinion about what that could be, or of what could be happening? Better still, do you have behaviors or conducts that are unique to you or could even be similar to those of other people in one way or another but at the end of the day, it’s something you relate deeply to? Then all these and even more describe your lifestyle.
This means, therefore, that your lifestyle is how you choose to live your life, the things you believe in, how you carry out your activities, the way you dress or cook, or the clothes you wear and the food you eat; the small and big things that define not you as a person, but your life as an individual being, individual group or even culture. Alfred Ader, the father of the word, “lifestyle,” believed that your lifestyle is stipulated in your childhood-established character. Does it make sense? Maybe understanding how and why it’s important could help make things clearer.
Give your Life Meaning
Do you ever just look at your life and wonder whether the things you do mean anything to you or anyone else, but most importantly, to you? Think about the foods you eat, the exercises you do or choose not to do even when you need them; think about your early schedule of every morning and your how you’re fairing on health-wise. Do you ever feel that something is not right? If you do feel perfectly fine with the way you live your life, then do you ever worry that something may go wrong if you decide to change?
Your lifestyle is meant to source good to you and your life in all aspects of good health, association with people and the tasks you tackle in your everyday life and how you respond to them. You need to be able to control the things that happen around you and the course that your life takes, but you’ll not be able to do this if your lifestyle is not in check. Building your confidence helps on how you relate with people and eating healthy foods and exercising helps improve your general well-being and fitness. At the end of the day, you’ll realize that your lifestyle is more or less like a light shining through your life’s path. It helps you take charge of the course that your life takes and leading a healthy and sociable lifestyle just puts you ahead of everything and everyone else.
