What is hiding behind a "healthy lifestyle"
Rumor rumors (and good hearing – This is also health!) what is the most important – This is a properly built system! And the system consists of elements. Let’s go through the elements of the table of a healthy lifestyle, as the famous periodic sleep of Mendeleev.
So it is important to eat right. No fat is. No flour. V «McDonalds» don’t even go to the toilet. Don’t drink firewater. And a lot of water drinking ordinary. Do not smoke (they say it concerns not only cigarettes). Stay in a healthy atmosphere and in the relevant environment. Although even the most healthy environment can be significantly worse than some unhealthy surrounding Saturday. And in the morning you need to run. And not only beer. And if for beer, then it does not drink it. And also drugs can not: if you use, it is very difficult to keep track of the quality of the products that eat. So it is possible and not to notice that the inscriptions «does not contain gmo» No on packaging. By the way, the greatest inscription «without GMO» I saw on an associate car in Odessa. After which he repeatedly reflected on genetics.
And they also say that a healthy lifestyle is easier, because for unhealthy need much more money. And here I think it’s not quite so. All these environmentally friendly pieces made on the basis of something perfect and magical, – they are some notable. Try only to go to a vegetarian restaurant – Everything is pure, noble and morality every square meter satuned. And smile to you so much the meatyad in life will smile. And if you try something to taste there (especially food), then you want someone to quickly give money. A lot of money to move away from there. And even pay extra – so that it never is.
Jokes jokes, but why there all such a fresh?! Whether my taste has long been perverted and unable to perceive healthy food, whether health in itself requires catastrophic victims.
A healthy lifestyle is some miraculous way directly related to restrictions. And somehow inconvenience a lot. At least at first glance. You won’t go to the ordinary store, you need a special. Restaurant around the corner is also not particularly suitable. If you, of course, do not live in some vegan Bronx.
Why do people restrict themselves? A number of researchers, in particular psychologist Barry Schwartz, believe that «Modern cultures have excessive freedom». This leads to a decrease in satisfaction with life and an increase in the number and duration of depressive states. Too wide selection leads to «tyranny freedom».
Lengar and Lepper researchers, based on the experiment and subsequent analysis of the data obtained, concluded that people who choose from the thirty proposed product varieties were significantly less satisfied than those who chose only six varieties. At the same time, the degree of satisfaction did not depend on what kind of grade they chose.
In other words, voluntarily introducing some restrictions for themselves, we currently can increase their satisfaction. Here is such a paradox.
In addition, there is another factor: the more anxiety, changes, including unpleasant, the more around uncertainty, the more people need a clear understandable structure. Structure and some restrictions reduce the alarm. «I lead a healthy lifestyle, I eat only healthy food» – quite clear sending both society and yourself. The algorithm is clear: you are looking for a healthy food, read on the labels, which is written. Walk exclusively in the vegan restaurant. And you yourself are at the same time – a complete imitation subject. Love animals. Berzhing yourself. About others cared. What good and wonderful!
Run to ideal
Ideally, there is always the one or another share of attractiveness, whatever meaning we in these words. Yes, and love without idealization is hardly possible. And we all need love. Term «Practical idealization», That is, the system of measures to achieve an ideal based on working on itself is quite crowded from professional pickuparters. And somehow from a healthy lifestyle, we on the template methods of dating girls came out. Suddenly. But maybe someone is nice.
In general, idealization – This psychological defense. It can be a specialist, whose actions, according to Idealizing, can change its life, will meet hope, will bring some benefit and so on. What is it bad!? If helped – Great. Did not help – Here you can appreciate. Delov something! Load responsibility for their lives will be much less. And the psyche always strives to reset the nose.
Healthy image – good object for idealization. No wonder lectures «How I started running and how it changed my life» Collect extensive audiences. I started to run and happiness came. But if the desire for a healthy lifestyle takes obsessive character, then the castings are already. Here you can already start talking about obsessive state syndrome. Or speaking otherwise, – about obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Between a healthy lifestyle and whatever neither the direct communication disorders exist. Rather, people who are predisposed to the obsessions can obsessively strive for anything, including – To a healthy lifestyle than those who are fond of refinery can receive a predisposition to some disorders. In addition, of course, disorders associated with the impossibility of lie down a little on the sofa without remorse.
Try to regularly go to the gym throughout, say, years, and then take and stop. And then you can collect material on an excellent article: «Broke or abstineent syndrome». Whoever gets better to follow all the canons of a healthy lifestyle: a person with a dependent personality structure or without?
No matter how we relate to addiction, it is worth recognizing that such her kind (and holy pitching and blissful Powerlifters forgive me!) It looks much more attractive compared to many other.
And if you have the impression that I am against a healthy lifestyle, it’s you in vain. I’m just actively for. And I am for mental health. For freedom and free choice. Which everyone does for himself, on the basis of his desires and his volitional decision. And not on the basis of public trends.
