Baby steps

During a conversation on living a healthy lifestyle with a friend earlier, I was reminded yet again of why each person has to make the personal choice to do it. Simply, it is something we have to WANT to do. We have to make up our minds and be up for the challenge. We know it's good for us, we understand the consequences for doing it. We just have to be READY for it. It is nothing that can be forced upon you. Once again...Timing Is Everything.

It is also important to identify the reasons why we were not following the healthy lifestyle in the first place. This can be a variety of reasons, emotionally & mentally speaking. Is it a matter of control? (the need for or the lack of?) Could it be a issue of (self)love? (lack of). It may not be anything like this and just be purely physical , although I always tend to think that it's never JUST physical. In any case we should identify it, acknowledge it and take steps to heal it and correct it. It will only make a better version of YOU. It does not have to be a big ordeal. It can be as simple as perhaps being sure to increase your water intake more and more everyday until you are drinking half your body weight in ounces. Begin doing five minute stretches everyday and gradually increase the minutes to a full 30 minute workout a few times a week. The point is to just DO IT.

We all can loose our focus and get off balance when it comes to treating ourselves wholistically. The fault is not in loosing the focus but in refusing to wear the corrective lenses.

Part of our mission at Be.Beautifully.Well is to promote and educate the benefits of beauty and wellness for the mind, body and spirit. This is not only our gift to you, but as a loving reminder for ourselves. We all need encouragement, true?
It's a natural fact that our bodies do not lie. What we do to ourselves internally will eventually manifest itself externally. Take steps towards a better and healthier YOU today!
