1. Be Appreciative
Wake up every single morning and say thank you for the wonder of being able to live another day. You are alive and that means that every day is an opportunity to achieve greatness. Leave the worries and stress of yesterday behind and remember to always live in the moment. Be alive for the present and remember that life is exactly what you make it.
2. Look In The Mirror At Your Beauty Instead Of Your Flaws
When is the last time you looked at yourself and didn’t criticize or critique something? We have been conditioned to hate our bodies and expect perfection in our image and that is just plain unreasonable. Love your flaws and be thankful that they are yours. Look past the things you wish you could change and accept yourself just the way you are. It is healthy to want to be a better you, but not if it means putting down what you have. Accept yourself completely first, then work on being a better you.
3. Eat Healthy Foods
Let me emphasize: Eat healthy foods. Put down the processed junk and spend a little more time on the nourishment that enters your body every. single. day. Your body truly is a temple and if you fill it with junk what do you think is going to happen? Eat organic foods that make you feel good and give you natural energy instead of chugging the toxic energy drinks. If you eat the proper diet and drink enough water, you won’t need energy supplements or medicine. Food is the greatest medicine of all and when you begin to care about what you eat instead of tossing back any old junk food, you will notice a HUGE difference in your body, mood, and energy.
4. Get Active And Exercise Outside
Exercise is SO important I can’t even emphasis it enough. Walk if you have to. Just get out there and move. I know that everyone wants to be in the gym taking “gym selfies” but make sure to get outside for some of those calorie burning sessions. Take a walk around the block so you can absorb some vital vitamin D. People don’t realize how important this essential nutrient is and even though we can get it from a canister, it is WAY better to soak in some au natural sunlight while getting your heart rate up. Trust me, this is a passionate subject of mine. DO IT.
5. Find your Passion
Figure out what it is (besides your 9-5) that makes you tick. What do you actually like doing that makes you happy? Once you find that one thing that really makes you excited about life, invest more of your time into it. There is nothing sadder than the person who goes to work, drinks their gallon of coffee, takes an hour lunch, heads back to the grind, gets off, and heads home to watch TV or drink, followed by bed (repeat). I. Would. Go. Insane if this were my routine. I HAVE gone insane before when this WAS my routine. Get out of it, add something in your day that makes your happy and gives you something to look forward to other than the bottom of a glass.
Always remember to be YOU 100% authentically and love everyone 🙂
