How To Fall In Love With Healthy Living
Ah, springtime and thoughts turn to falling in love…
∙ The fresh sense of discovery when you’re excited by the newness of it all.
∙ The rush of endorphins.
∙ That sense of belonging that you just know will last forever.
And here’s the kicker: I’m not talking about falling in love with another person!
I’m talking about falling in love with being healthy.
∙ With taking daily actions to improve your body and mind.
∙ With feeling good every time you exercise, eat right, and get a good night’s sleep.
∙ With knowing that you’ve found a path and other people you will enjoy for a long time.
Seriously! It’s true. You can fall in love with healthy living just like you might talk about “falling in love” with a job, a hobby, and – yes – even a special someone.
First of all, open your mind and your heart to the possibilities. Forget about negative experiences in the past.
Second, when you find something that you enjoy doing, keep doing it! Don’t focus on what you “should be” doing instead. When you find the right one, trust your heart.
Third, nurture this affection with honest self-appraisal and solid reliability. That means you support yourself with loving tenderness and commitment to what you’re doing.
Fourth, accept there will be struggles. And believe it’ll all be worth it.
Fifth, smile! Be proud of what you’re doing and how great you feel and look.
You got this!
