Today I’m learning that being fit and healthy takes a lot of work! Do you struggle with taking care of your mind, body and soul. I know I did. Here are a few tips that I have been learning along the way on my journey.
Before I could begin the journey to a new healthier me, I had to make some decisions and set some goals for myself. Long and short term. If you are anything like me, my best thinking landed me overweight, unhealthy and defiantly unhappy. This is where having friends and a support group were essential for me. Take suggestions from them on workouts, meal plans and routines was uncomfortable and seemed like a lot of work. But with little practice, rearranging of the busy schedule, I make it happen!
Knowledge is not everything! I went overboard many times reading every blog, recipe and health magazine out there. End result….TOTALLY OVERWHELMED! I used up all my time when not running on the internet and in self help books. Left me with a racing mind and couldn’t enjoy this new “normal” life I was living.
While it is a true, a healthy body and a healthy mind, lead to a healthy soul, I am finding that meditation and quiet time each day is a key part of an overall healthy life. It’s hard to find the time to be still with life going on, but even if it’s a few minutes in your car on the drive to work, or the drive home, it make all the difference in the world. Don’t believe me….try it!!
