There is no quick fix that will make you healthy. You can’t take a magic pill to achieve health. You can’t pay someone to do it for you. You can’t wish your way to being healthy either. Being healthy is a lifestyle. It is a process of making choices that affect your body, mind and soul in a positive way.
While you may think that is a bit harsh and it sounds all but impossible to do, you really just have to take one step; the first one. Make the decision that you’re going to choose health!
It doesn’t have to be a complete change of your current lifestyle all at once. Start with something small, like taking a few minutes, even 15-20, to do something you find relaxing. It can be walking in the park, reading a book, listening to music, playing with your dog, planting some flowers, or just sitting quietly doing nothing. It’s just a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of your busy life. A time to decompress and let yourself just “be.”
You may think you don’t have time for such nonsense, but you will find that even a mini-break like this will refresh you and allow you to deal more easily with the normal craziness of your life.
Welcome to the LAFF path to a healthier you! A simple start – with more easy changes ahead.
