Health Is Huge

There are certain subjects that can be discussed continuously non-stop and health is one of those topics. Since we have been talking about organizing, there is another kind of organizing I want to do. I need to continue to organize my health regiment tuneup. Try to fine tune my eating and exercise but with balance. What do I mean? It's called accountability for our own health.
You've heard it said that you can't look for someone else to make you happy. You can have someone in your life that enhances your happiness but ultimately you have to be in charge of your own happiness. It's the same when it comes to your well being and your health. We should be in charge of our own health.

This summer I fell off the exercise routine because it was just too hot for me. There are two choices. I could beat myself up because I stopped or I could get right back out there and continue where I left off. I chose the latter. Don't beat yourself up because what you didn't do, that is wasted energy. You want to use your energy to revise your game plan. If you don't have one make one - TODAY!

Make little changes that can give big returns back. Remember, it's all about long term care. When I talk about being healthy I use the words - be good to yourself, be kind to yourself and be patient with yourself. Any kind of woe is me takes our energy away from what we need to concentrate on. We need to get back on the horse and keep it movin.

It's like the old movie reels for example. When there was a part of the movie they didn't want they would splice the movie tape and cut what they didn't want and tape the two parts together and walla, you couldn't tell by watching the movie that they made that change.

That's what we want to do. Stop playing over and over what we didn't do, use what we didn't do as a lesson learned. Splice out that part in our mind reel and tape where you left off to where you are continuing and move it on from there. Easier said then done but the point is that it can be done. Our goal should be to release negative energy and bring in positive energy and action. It's all about not giving up.

For about the last five months I got back on the band wagon and I continue my walking regiment. That is going well, but I am still working and struggling with the cooking part. I don't intend to give up but continue to improve reminding myself that if I want to do more of my crafts, using my working hands, I need to make sure I keep my health up.

A new year is approaching. Don't wait, be good to yourself and start today working on your plan. Build on it as you just take baby steps, if need be, into better health for a better year. Here's to mine and your health.
