10 Things Fit, Healthy People Do Differently

I’m not too deep a thinker when it comes to why I exercise. As a Pilates instructor, I can precisely analyze the function of a muscle. But when it comes to deconstructing why I get up at 5am to run, why I go to yoga instead of out to dinner, why I always make time to work out, I don't think about it - I just do it.

Having started gymnastics at 6 years old, fitness was an integral part of my childhood and a practice I carried instinctively into adulthood. But many people are not exposed to fitness as children and grow up without an understanding of how exercise is critical to health, longevity and self-esteem.

So after some analysis, I've identified 10 distinct habits that fit, healthy people practice. I explore these habits in my latest MINDBODYGREEN ARTICLE, practices I invite you to nurture on your journey to becoming the best you can be:


If you have any special habits that help you stay fit and healthy, I'd love to hear them! Feel free to comment and I'll share them in a future post....
