What does being well mean to you? Being healthy? Feeling good? No illness? No stress? What is the value you place on that? And why is it that many of us have such a hard time doing the things we need to do to achieve our optimum well being?
We could spend eons asking why and belittling ourselves, or we can just reassess and maybe make a choice that has us being a little bit more healthier or feeling better about ourselves. The human mind is complex, and there are so many things that are unanswerable. But it does us no good to dwell in dis-empowerment. Instead, we could look at what would give us the most power in taking care of ourselves? Remembering that we have choice is powerful, and that we can choose to think a different way, or choose do something differently in our everyday lives. I’m not talking about huge changes or achieving that perfect vision you have for your self. I am speaking about little, doable things that we can do to be healthier, happier and live a better quality of life.
Maybe it could be taking more 5 minute breaks? Occasional walks, not eating that hamburger and fries, taking a few deep breaths when something pisses us off, or indulging in a bubble bath. I’m sure you can think of other things, little things, that you can do to improve the quality of your life and improve your well being. I invite you to consider what the cost is of not taking care of yourself and start finding (and doing) those little things to enhance your life today.
