I'm sharing some tips for getting healthy by implementing simple changes in your life. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing!
Really how is it February already? How are you doing with creating your New Year Resolution?
We don’t participate in creating resolutions. We work on being our best selves ( Mind, body, spirit, family and home). It’s been an amazing transformation for me as I am able to stick with everything and succeed without having a “resolution”.
I began this journey of being my best self almost 6 years ago. Through using this mindset I have successful lost 185 pounds and turned my life around.
Which ever way you choose to welcome the new year, you don’t have to do a complete upheaval to create a healthy changes in your life. Often small steps in the right direction are enough to make you feel better. Feeling better leads to you feeling more confident. Your confidence keeps moving forward so you can keep taking more steps in the right direction. Before you know it, you’ve got some momentum going and then you start to see your progress developing!
I wanted to share with you a few changes I made to my life when I first started on my journey of being my best self. I knew that if I implemented a lot of BIG, new strategies I would feel overwhelmed. So instead each week, I added 1 or 2 from the list below to my weekly plan.
I am all about making things simple! Here is a simplified list so that you too, can start on the road to a healthier life!
