Try the S.P.O.T. Approach to a Healthy Lifestyle

Many people find it easier to achieve a goal if they have an acronym to associate with their plan. If you’ve set a goal to dedicate yourself to living a healthy lifestyle, the S.P.O.T. (simplify, prioritize, organize, take control)plan may help you achieve your goal.


Reducing stress and lightening the daily load you’re carrying may be part of your lifestyle transition process. Decluttering your home, work space and your calendar can help you simplify your life. Reducing your commitments and managing your obligations effectively can free up some of your time. The time you save by simplifying your life can be spent exercising, relaxing or indulging in a little self-pampering.


It’s helpful to prioritize the obligations you remain committed to. This assures that you can handle the most important things first and, if necessary, shuffle the lower priority items around so that you don’t feel overwhelmed as the end of the day, week or month draws near.


Stress is an enemy to a healthy living goal. Once you simplify and prioritize, you can more easily establish a system of organization that will prevent you from wasting time and energy. Before going to bed each night, have the next day’s wardrobe laid out. It’s also helpful to have the items you need to take with you placed together in a central location. This can eliminate frantic morning searches that are sure to get the day off to a bad start.

Take Control

It’s important that you get control of your time. The kitchen is one area where that is especially important. During the simplification process, you should donate items that are cluttering your cabinets and counter top. Focus on keeping or purchasing a few time saving appliances such as a good quality blender. Gather a collection of blender recipes that can help you prepare healthy meals quickly so that you can remain dedicated to your healthy eating goal. You won’t find yourself skipping breakfast or grabbing unhealthy takeout when you can quickly and easily make something healthy at home.

To live a healthy lifestyle, it’s important that you take care of your nutritional needs, get some physical exercise and implement stress-reducing techniques. Set small goals so that you can quickly see your accomplishments and will be encouraged to stay on track with your overall goal.
