Sure, we all want a washboard stomach, strong toned arms, and to look our best. And it's great to work on these things. But let's dig deeper. When is the last time you did something to exercise your mind and soul? For overall health and wellness, there must be a balance between the body, mind, and soul.
It's easier than ever to get caught up in day-to-day distractions which lead to stress and anxiety, negatively affecting our mental and physical health. From the workplace to the needs of your family...the list goes on and on. There comes a time where you need to put yourself first. How can we aren't the best version of ourselves? A couple of small changes in our daily routine can make a big impact on overall wellness.
PUT DOWN THE PHONE!
It's scary how much time is wasted on our phones, and yes, I am including myself here. Social media is a huge contributor to our overall wellness. Of course sometimes for the better, but far too often its effect is negative.
Instead, go for a walk, connect with an old friend, commit to that weekend vacation, reach out of your comfort zone and do some of the things you think about and do not act on. And of course, find time for exercise. I promise you will be happy you did.
DECLARE YOUR GOALS BIG OR SMALL
Talking always makes things easier. I challenge you to verbally declare a life goal to a friend or family member. this can be anything from losing 5 lbs to promising you will spend more time on yourself.
SHARE THE EXPERIENCE
Bringing others in on your goals makes the chances of success increase significantly. Don't be afraid! Maybe this will encourage your loved ones to do the same.
