We live in a chaotic world that has become driven by here and now. In a world where news is at your fingertips through the power of a status update or tweet it’s easy to become flustered or overwhelmed. A few years ago I felt myself becoming burned out by the constant need for speed, at this time I made a vow to slow my day down in strategic ways and keep my Mind, Body, and Spirit in mind for personal fitness and wellness goals. Being healthy is a lifestyle, it’s about what we ingest mentally, physically, emotionally, etc.
As I examined my lifestyle I decided I was going to start my day with positivity, eat better and force myself to get more rest. Now, that might not sound hard for many, but as a recovering insomniac it took training and still takes a bit of effort. Check out my Fitness and Wellness to do list;
1. Wake Up and Meditate
2. Do Sit ups/Crunches (the never ending ab battle)
3. Eat A Balanced Breakfast
4. Go over my vision board
5. Take computer breaks
6. eat a healthy lunch
7. Don’t bring work to bed (still working on that, lol)
8. Eat Dinner
9. Pray/Meditate before bed
10. Try to get at least 4 hours of sleep.
My lifestyle isn’t perfect, yet, but I’ve noticed a lot of positive changes in how my body feels because I’m eating healthier… I’ve made it a point to eat less meat and dairy. I now eat more fish, veggies and drink a lot of Silk Soy Milk or Silk Almond Milk. Eating regularly throughout the day keeps my metabolism going too. I know making lifestyle changes can seem like trying to climb a mountain, but I suggest making small changes at a time… each day is a new day to become a better you!
Be sure to check out more tips and information on Silk Soy Milk or other milk substitutes here. I know sometimes people are always curious about the taste or health benefits, I can definitely say I love it!. You can also like Silk on Facebook here.
