This week’s word is WELLNESS.
Wellness is the act of practicing healthy habits on a daily basis to attain better physical and mental health outcomes, so that instead of just surviving, you're thriving.
Sis, when you take a look at your life and daily habits, would you say that you’re just surviving or intentionally thriving? Are there some areas that you can improve in? If so, what will you do today to start making steps in the right direction?
In the past, I was extremely careless with my health. That was until my body made it crystal clear that if I’m not mindful of what I consume, I will see and feel the consequences. I can no longer pretend that eating unhealthy is no big deal because it will show up on my skin and on the scale, in my thoughts and in my words, and through my energy and my actions. A few years ago, I took a long hard look in the mirror and asked myself if I wanted to continue going through life trying to find ways to hide the damage my unhealthy lifestyle was doing to my body or implement healthier habits that would give me the confidence to show up as my authentic self. I made the choice to thrive instead of just survive. My wellness journey has been full of stumbling blocks and moments when I could have made healthier choices, but each day I wake up with the intention to be better than the day before. I keep in mind the vision I have of my best self and keep working towards becoming her every day.
This week, I encourage you to start, continue, or recommit to your wellness journey. Take inventory of your current habits and eliminate anything that is getting in the way of you feeling your best. Implement healthier habits that will lead you to achieve greater success. Write down a description of what your best self looks and feels like and make intentional steps to get closer to becoming her every day. Remember, the better you get, the bigger you’ll win!
