Just Do It!!!
The holidays are over, but you may still not feel like yourself. Feeling tired? Feeling anxious? Do you wish you had more energy for 2018? Here are five ways to add ZEST to your life! It all starts from working from within to make the outside sparkle!
Write a list today of your pros and cons about yourself and your life. Prioritize the top two pros. Focus on the triggers that block you from reaching your goals. Be realistic of how you can move in the direction from the con to the pro issues. Remember the Nike slogan, “JUST DO IT!” Put your foot in the door and make baby steps each day.
2. BE THANKFUL:
Everyday find something that you are thankful for to start your day. Every few hours be cognizant of the small things that brighten your day. These thoughts should be breathed in deeply like a breath of fresh air! Breathe out the worries fears, anxiety and dis-ease that’s pulling you down. DO NOT BREATHE IT BACK IN! It’s like pollution!
Give to others. Don’t over focus on yourself. Giving to others gives you a natural endorphin feeling and lowers your stress. Even making a compliment to someone comes from a giving heart. However, don’t let giving to others hinder you from your own needs. You need to take care of you, so you can take care of others!
4. BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER:
To be who you want to be you need to be surrounded by other like-minded people. Be a good influence and let others be a good influence on you. A positive friendship encourages and inspires each other to live a healthy life.
5. CHOOSE WISELY:
Think before you do. Think of your choices of foods, actions and thoughts. Don’t let an impulse occur without thinking of the cause and effect. The craving for poor quality foods should be a rarity. The lack of movement in your body affects your musculoskeletal system and your metabolism. Plan for the type of exercise that rejuvenates you. Don’t injure yourself as a weekend warrior. Change your bad habits.
Our patients at our center seek our care from a holistic approach. They desire a logical program that is proactive for great health and longevity. A pattern of healthy instincts, healthy thoughts and healthy actions make a happier and more fulfilling 2018!
