I've learned so much in these first two months of 2016, and pushed myself to places and things I thought I would never experience. I'm on a healthier road. I wanted to share some of the things that have been effective in my journey. Super corny but many people go their entire life without Truly loving themselves & that's a shame. You're a beautiful person, unique In your ways. I think that there's always room for improvement and in my road to be a better me, I've discovered many different things that I wish to
Share with you too.
Exercise: just go for a walk.
Consistency: this ties into working out. No matter what never stop. Make a plan to enjoy some time for you and your body.
Read: I love Audio books, I listen to them when I need something extra and I can't get myself to actually sit down and read.
Write: I started a gratitude journal, everyday I write down something that makes me happy. I'm also a fan of lists. You have a notepad in your phone. Jot down some thoughts.
Drink water: this is supposed to be #1 but I'm still working on this everyday. I play a little water game with my friends. We kind of battle each other to see who's drinking more water.
Take a break: I've taken a break from activities that don't suit me. Actually take a break from anything that distracts you from all above.
Create: it's so easy to get caught up in life and work, you forget your passions and what makes you feel alive.
De clutter: I'm working on this, I read a book last year & it suggested you throw out a bag of stuff each day. I don't do it everyday but it's such a simple trick that really works wonders!
Go outside: nature is so important and we have to enjoy it. I'm trying to get outdoors more. It helps me appreciate the little things like changing color leaves.
Don't stress about it: I gave up stress for lent. Find what triggers you and avoid it if possible. Breathe and if your neck feels tense there's always Icy-Hot
