I have three midterms today and tomorrow that I should be studying for but I’d rather blog. Don’t worry, I’m totally ready for them (or at least I will be). I want to take a break from studying to suggest something totally different from what I’ve done on this blog. I know that I’ve given lots of tips and advice on health/fitness/nutrition and the like. But I think the key to success of sustaining your good health is to individualize it.
To keep it sweet and simple, I’d like to invite you to write a letter to yourself. Date it 6 months, a year, 5 years, 10 years from today. In the letter, write to yourself and detail the things that you want to accomplish for your health. Include specific goals that you hope to have accomplished by the time you read your letter. Include small things in addition to big dreams. I hear from my friends and family that they want to get started on building a healthier life, but it’s often sound and fury personifying nothing. Once you write it all down, you’ll really see how capable you are to do it. Also, it’s a yet another way to hold yourself accountable.
I truly believe that health and fitness are accessible to all of us. The catalyst that will make it happen is the motivation that we find within ourselves. Sadly, many people need a health scare to get them going. But remember, it’s never too late to get on the fitness track. Sustainable Health/Fitness is not a state of being; it is a state of doing. It’s a complete lifestyle, mentality, and physical commitment that continually occurs everyday. It starts when we make our health and happiness top priorities.
Everyday is a new day. Make positive change to better yourself, your life, and the others around you.
And as Ellen Degeneres always says, “Be kind to one another.”
