At least in theory, staying healthy is actually quite simple. I think the biggest challenge I've had for years in this area has been thinking that being healthy was a place where I would arrive one day and settle there forever in glory!
#5 I keep track of where I am, where I'm coming from and where I want to be
Please, do not interpret this one, as obsessing with weighing myself and exercising. Because I'm NOT doing that and I do NOT advise you to do it either. That said, I do believe it's important to have an objective measure of where I stand, what I have accomplished and what my future goals are, to keep me motivated.
There are 2 very cool iPhone apps that I find very nice and helpful for this:
While summer is here - at least for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere - we can still obsess about creating those outfits that show some skin... Plus, you can shop today for a lot less than at the beginning of the season .... and if done wisely you will wear your items for summers to come! For those of us down here - in the South of the globe - we can get our closets ready for upcoming Spring and Summer.
So this goes to all of us female-fashion-junky-earthlings: my new monthly obsessions - items I've purchased myself and that will most likely make it to my closet real soon if the mail allows it! Some of these items are currently on SALE, so if at any time you wish to get one, you can simply click and start shopping :)
... keep reading if you'd like to learn why and where I purchased each one!
So, let me tell you about the first time I noticed Lola, my exotic shorthair Kitten, could see in 2D. I think it was about a year and a half ago, she was only 6 months old. My husband was travelling every quarter to Minneapolis, Minnesota for business. And Lola and I were staying at home all by ourselves. Even though I was pretty busy with a heavy workload myself, and that helped while he was away, my husband and I have worked together, sometimes with different clients, but mostly sharing the same office space, for almost as long as we've been married. We are rarely apart, so I was glad I had Lola to keep me company on the days he was away.
We don't need no lecture on the importance of drinking water. You and I have heard it a million times: helps in weight-loss, detoxes the body, clears the skin, gets rid of headaches, among other great benefits. There's nothing new in all this and still, we all have such difficulties getting as much of it as we need each day ( at least 3 litres or 100 oz). Why oh why do we resist to feel better, by this simple act of drinking H20? It's just puzzling, isn't it? I will tell you why... It feels boring and dull. There, I said it! I must confess, that I need to make a conscious "note-to-self" every single day or I will very easily fail to drink enough water.
Now, that said, I've lately been doing a much better job at this, so I wanted to share my new and very simple 3 tips, that you can put them into practice right now, to stay hydrated.
You REALLY are ENOUGH. Not in a year, or 10... Right now. You DON'T have to wait for the right time, for the right moment, for the right education, for the right weight, for the right man, for the right approval, for the right amount of money to prove to yourself what you're worth... You truly ARE enough, and ALWAYS were.
You may have been told otherwise, and may be doubting these lines for a minute.... So let me I'm tell you more about who you are. I'VE SEEN YOU. I've witnessed you EVERY day and EVERYWHERE.
- You are SO VALUABLE: You are a hard working woman, underpaid in comparison to your male peers at work. And yet NOTHING stops you. You can have the strength and determination to keep fighting for what you know you're worth.
