As a continuation of my last blog I wanted to report back to you on how the healthy eating and exercising is affecting my mental health.
I actually feel like a new person. Here’s why . . .
First off, I am one of those weirdos who actually enjoys getting older! Are you one of those too?
The reason I love it, is because I look at life as one big “practice.” The same way we might look at any practice, such as yoga, riding a bike, singing, playing a guitar, riding a horse . . . you get the picture.
We all know what happens when you practice something long enough. It becomes a part of you, you become the master!
In this first full week of my new regime I found out something new about myself! I’m so much nicer to ME than I used to be. I’ve given myself permission not to overdo it. Going to the gym three times a week is enough and if I find myself hungrier on a certain day or two I will eat the extra calories I’ve burned at the gym.
My all or nothing, overachieving personality has surrendered to a gentler approach. It’s also given me a new perspective on my self-confidence in my personal life and my business.
Carrying this gentle approach forward in other areas of my life I have noticed a shift. I’m truly realizing that I am capable of learning and becoming a master at all the things I love.
I have some goals in my biz that I’ve been putting off because I’ve felt overwhelmed and lost. Well I am thrilled to report that ship has sailed! Bye! Bye!
Look out world, my goals are to master video editing, start my own YouTube channel and develop a HUGE outreach so that I can change the world!!!
Feeling energized and excited means that you are exactly where you are supposed to be in life and on the happiness scale. Creating your own happiness and seeing the good is a huge part of that!
However, if you feel sluggish, tired and overwhelmed most days, then promise me this – next week you will pick 2 things that make you feel great and keep doing it! Maybe that’s taking a walk in the sunshine, getting lost in a book, making time for your best friend. Whatever it is DO IT, small changes make big ones!
Remember, activity drives results so get active and make a change! I’m right here cheering you on!
I’d love to hear from you. What is something that you love to do for yourself to get you out of your funk? Remember your input matters, we are after all women helping women!
