I want to encourage you to take one step to become the new healthier you – today!
Some people get very discouraged about the shape they are in; their weight, fitness, relationships – or just overall health. Some people “feel bad” almost every day – what might be called malaise or a lack of well-being.
You can begin to make changes today – even by taking small steps toward a healthier lifestyle.
Wikipedia defines health as: the level of functional or metabolic efficiency of a living being. In humans, it is the general condition of a person’s mind, body and spirit, usually meaning to be free from illness, injury or pain (as in “good health” or “healthy”). For some people, it’s been so long since they’ve felt like they were in “good health” that they’ve given up. They decide that since they don’t feel good every day that food and activity choices they make don’t really matter.
Don’t fall into this trap!
Every day of life and breath that you are given is an opportunity to feel, live, love, think, move and be all that you were created to be. Every day presents new opportunities to make healthy choices; choices that can lead you toward good health.
Make a conscious choice today to choose good health. This site has ideas on how you can take small steps to begin to move in the right directions; small changes that you can sustain that will become part of your lifestyle.
You are uniquely you and no one has the same body as you; today you have an opportunity to choose at least one thing, one change that can lead you to better health. For many, it’s as simple as eat a little less and move a little more.
Here are a few simple suggestions to help you start today to the new healthier you:
-skip that candy bar -have a piece of fresh fruit
-skip soda today -drink an extra glass of water
-skip the dessert -have a little more salad, fruit or veggies
-skip the butter for today -skip the salt too
-skip that angry thought -tell someone thank you
-skip 15 minutes of TV -spend an extra 15 minutes walking
-skip another 15 minutes of TV -spend 15 minutes praying or meditating
