Each day we are faced with choices.
We can choose to head to the fast food drive through or pack our own health lunch and snacks.
We can choose to sit and watch TV for hours and talk about how we don't have time to prepare healthy meals or to work out.
We can choose to work out while watching our shows or aim the TV into the kitchen and watch while preparing healthy snacks and meals for the day or for the week.
Or, we can just watch a lot less TV and get out of the house and enjoy a walk or run in nature.
We can go to the gym or work out in our living room, kitchen, office, garage or even the yard.
We can complain about how healthy food is so expensive and too expensive for our budget or we can take an honest look at how much we eat, how often, the nutritional value of the foods we eat and do a true comparison.
We can choose to invest in ourselves or we can choose to put on blindfolds of false beliefs (I'm not good enough, I don't have time, I am too tired, I'm in too much pain, etc) and false information (good food is too expensive and hard to find, etc) and we can take simple steps daily towards our self care.
It's hard watching a loved one kill themselves slowly with toxic foods and beliefs and filling the air with their excuses and "I can't" statements. Are you that loved one that others are losing to poor choices?
You can choose to look into the mirror and say "I love you, and I'll show you that I do" and get out there and commit yourself to daily acts of self love.
You can focus on the why you want to achieve, succeed, shift, release, etc.... the "WHY" that pulls you forward.
Or, you can focus on the "why I can't" statements that keep you stagnant, broke and in ill health. This why sits you down and leads to deeper depression, more physical and mental and emotional pain. This why keeps you broke, unhealthy and sets you up for failure. YOU are worth MORE than that! :)
You can use the "instead of" mindset.
One simple shift daily can make a HUGE difference in your overall health, safety and success.
Instead of watching a movie or two hours of shows I'm going to watch a documentary relevant to my goals: career, health, wealth, etc. Or I'll listen to an audio book about wealth building, health, or something I've really been wanting to learn more about while I workout or clean or drive.
Instead of eating that fast food, I'm going to bring a salad and some fruit and perhaps dried fruit and nuts or protein shakes.
Instead of that soda for today I'll choose herbal tea, water, 100% fruit and/or veggie juice or 100% produce smoothie.
Instead of complaining, I will invest that time in writing down all I am grateful for in my life.
Instead of thinking about what's wrong with me or others I'll spend time looking for things that I CAN DO and do them.
Just for today I will....
