We become obsessed with so many things in our life so why not become obsessed with moving?
Not homes. Not locations. But your booty! The more you move, the better you’ll feel. It really is that simple. I know life is busy but many of us are stuck in the same daily routine. Wake up. Work. Make small talk with people. Go home. Eat. Netflix. Sleep.
REPEAT! Life was not meant to be lived in cruise control. Falling into a repetitive routine limits your ability to connect with others and for some, living a healthy lifestyle. We get stuck in that routine and make excuses for not having time to exercise.

Try waking up and taking a morning stroll to change things up. Make the time to try out a new breakfast or coffee shop. When you apply a new spin to some of your monotonous tasks throughout the day, you will experience more joy, fun, and fulfillment in your daily routine.
If there’s a routine we must all try to follow it’s eat well, move daily, hydrate often, sleep lots. Repeat for life.
With everything going on around us right now, many still worry more than ever before. Self-care can be our sanity. Do you shape your environment, or do you allow your environment to shape you?
We must accept how we experience life starts with us and be the change we want to see in ourselves. Many of us already know what giving up feels like. Let’s see what happens if we don’t. We’ll have better health, more joy, funand fulfillment. One workout at a time, one day at a time, one meal at a time!
Seems there are more demands on our time than ever. Especially now with football season, the holidays coming up. Now is a great time to get active.
Increasing your level of physical activity not only makes you look better but feel better too. Exercise has a big impact on our emotional well-being. You’ll feel the positive effects within a few minutes of becoming active, and as your fitness level increases, your response to stress decreases.
Let exercise be your stress reliever, not food. Yes, there are side effects of exercise: a good mood, weight-loss, reduced stress, improved quality of life, increase in energy, boost in immune system, boost in productivity!!
To change things up can be difficult but for many, not to change can be fatal. Desiring change without making exercise and proper nutritional eating a priority only leads to short-term gains. We all have busy lives. It’s not about having time. It’s about making time.
Make yourself a priority occasionally.
It’s not selfish. It’s necessary. We must stop being afraid of what could go wrong and think of what will go right. Many want to improve their level of fitness but consider the price of change too high. But if there’s anything that is priceless, it’s our health.
