With everything going on in the world, it can be easy to forget about ourselves, and our bodies. We have to take care of so much else in our daily lives, that it is easy to slip into bad habits. Next thing you know, you are six donuts deep in a box of twelve and you are not sure how you got there. (Yeah, I have been there too).
Taking care of ourselves is super important and staying healthy plays a big part in that. And I am not just talking about your body, I am talking about your mind. The two go hand-in-hand. Our minds are connected to our bodies, and our bodies to our minds. If we only take care of the one, we can still feel miserable.
Below you’ll find some resources to help you keep healthy. But in the meantime:
Figure out what health is to you. Think about what areas in your life you would like to be healthier. It could be something as simple as getting more sleep. Just start making small and easy changes.
Be patient. You are not going to become a kung fu master in a day. Sometimes you’ll manage to keep up healthy habits, and other times you won’t. That’s okay. Don’t be hard on yourself.
Hang in there.
Change your perspective and uncover a way forward for you!
