Find Your WHY For Your Best Life Mind, Body & Spirit
Today I would like to share some ideas for you to consider for your better life mind, body & Spirit. You see I heard this concept the other day and it fascinated me -
“Human Movement Is A Form Of Nutrition” – Rafe Kelley
Here is his idea of human movement as a form of nutrition. Your body responds to movement just like it responds to real food. We must give our bodies the real food nutrients to provide the essentials for our wellbeing just like we must provide good movement. Meaning moving well provides our bodies with the necessary essentials for strong bodies that will take us through life as they were meant to do.
Yet, I have been thinking a lot about how now is the time for us all to get a better mind, body and spirit.
I see and hear so many people living in fear right now and frankly, it makes me both sad and mad.
If you are living in fear what are you doing to make positive changes for your wellbeing?
What practices have you put in place to eat better, move better, think better, play better, breathe better, hydrate better today? In the last 7 days, in the last 30 days, in the last 7 months?
Taking action is the only way your fear will subside or go away completely. By taking control of your life. You are the only one that can and must.
Yes, I understand completely that all of this can be a bit overwhelming if nothing has been done to uplift your life in the current global situation. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Change happens in tiny steps. But you do have to have a plan, a vision and YOUR WHY.
We have written a lot about creating your WHY. We have shared how I found my WHY way back in 1999 and it continues to be a big part of my WHY today.
You see at that time my mother had an accident and she needed a full hip replacement. When I got to the hospital she was lying in a hospital bed and would not have her surgery until the next day.
As I watched her lying there in pain, confused and afraid it made me think of my life. And that scared the crap out of me.
At that time I was 100 lbs. overweight, low energy, diagnosed with 3 autoimmune issues and it just came to me if I didn’t do something I was going to be my mother in 20 years.
The very next day I began my journey. I borrowed a Tai Bow video and got started. I knew I had a huge mountain to climb. I was overweight, not feeling 100%, out of shape and my food choices had a lot to be desired.
I began to exercise with the Tai Bow video every day. At first, I could only do a few minutes and then I could not do one more thing.
That was my starting point. Every day I did a few more seconds and within a short period of time, I was doing the whole program. But it all came in stages.
I didn’t rush it. I set what I felt were reasonable goals. Do the whole video for a few months. Then I found a local gym and began going there a few times a week.
Eat better by starting to add better foods and not think about giving up anything. The giving up the junk food came much later and it happened naturally because of all the WINS I was having each day.
The junk wasn't serving me anymore. But the changes didn't happen over night. Then I started to do more. Learn more. And today over 20 years later I am not the same person I was in 1999. I am healthy, eat real organic food, cook all my meals at home and enjoy it, do all kinds of exercise that is an absolute joy in my life, have all kinds of wellness practices I didn't even know existed way back then.
If can be the same for you. The bottom line is you must find you WHY. What would it mean to you if you began to take on the things that are holding you back from feeling great?
For me it was everything. That night I could not imagine being my mother 20 years down the road of life. Lying in a hospital bed, overweight, sick and waiting for some kind of medical intervention.
I got myself into the shape I was in that night and I was the only one that was going to get me out of it. And that is the same for you.
So, what is your WHY? The decision to figure out YOUR WHY will be the most important thing you will do if there is even the slightest desire in you to make a change. Let me know your WHY and how I can help.
