Health is not just a goal or a period of time; it is an adventure that starts now and goes on forever. Health is a lifestyle. It is about building daily habits that benefit your body, your mind, and your future. Health is building the will power and the mindset with your wellbeing at the center.
Creating a healthy lifestyle begins with taking small steps and making small decisions daily. Although these decisions might be uncomfortable at first, they eventually become habits and ultimately your own choices make you feel energized, fulfilled, and joyful. It has to start from within… Health has to be something that is of worth to you, something that you cannot live without. Ask yourself the question, “What drives you?” Once you find the answer, focus on that one thing and put it at the forefront of you thoughts because it will take sacrifice and will power, but it will be worth it. When it comes to fitness, find something you love to do. If however, you do not know what that is: TRY EVERYTHING until you find it!
Health is something that incorporates all aspects: nutrition, exercise, faith, and the most important…FUN! Each element is just as crucial as the next and when working together they can all lead to a very joyful life. Health looks different for everyone and should be something that is simply sustainable. Once the effort, small decisions, and will power come into play, it is easy to create and maintain the habits of a healthy lifestyle!
So ask yourself the following questions:
“What is your goal?”
“What drives you?”
“Where would you like to see yourself in a month, a year, or 5 years?
Write the answers down, tell someone your goals, and find a P.I.C. (Partner In Crime). Make health happen!
