“Get in the habit of asking yourself:
Does this support the life I’m trying to create?”
I have been thinking about this quote a lot lately. I think this quote is so powerful. It is the epitome of self-responsibility and creating the life you want.
I feel like I always think of this quote after I have done something or made a choice I wish I hadn’t made. My goal is to switch this quote from being the afterthought to being the thought at the forefront of my mind. I want to think of this before making decisions big or small. I’d love for it to become second nature.
This past week I feel like I fell off my game, which is okay because life happens, but I don’t feel the best. Taking care of your physical and mental health is so important! It is what this platform is all about, and the message I try to spread.
I don’t know about you, but I need a refresh.
So, I am going to share with you my goals for the next two weeks. I am hoping to form new sustainable habits that will ideally carry past the two weeks, but I need a reset. I hope you find a few that resonate with you that you might want to try!
- Drink 1 gallon of water every day. I struggle to drink enough water, and I can feel it affecting my body. We all know water is one of the simplest, yet most effective ways to improve your overall health.
- Go on a 20-30 minute walk 2x a day. Ideally, I’d like to walk in the morning and the evening. Gotta get those steps in (ha-ha)! Plus, it helps with digestion.
- Read an educational book. I think I am going to order a book called Fiber Fueled by Will Bulsiewicz, MD. It is a book on gut health. I am passionate about this topic. I suggest reading about something you want to learn more about, or a topic you love! 🙂
- Get off social media by 9 pm. I keep reading how blue light negatively affects our sleep. Ideally, I’d only like to be on social media from 12 pm – 9 pm, which I know is still a long time, but who else jumps on their phone as soon as they wake up?!
- Eat clean. Last week, I ate a lot of foods that disagreed with my stomach. I knew they were going to, but I ate them anyway. Especially when you have pre-existing stomach issues, this is not the smartest choice! I know I have mentioned in past blog posts, but your stomach and brain are best friends. I can feel my anxiety rise when my stomach is unhappy (it’s crazy). So, I want to focus on eating foods that fuel my body and won’t affect me negatively.
I hope you will take the next two weeks to recharge and reset with me! Please feel free to create your own goals to accomplish. We can do this!
