Loving and taking care of ourselves is sooo important. We always want to feel good in our own skin, and why shouldn’t we?! When we feel good in our skin it helps us feel more confident and strong. *insert arm flex emoji here* We need to create the best versions of ourselves to feel our best! We need to do this by fueling our bodies with good food and exercise! I am very passionate about healthy living and having a healthy lifestyle, (and I know that’s not the case for everyone ;)) I truly feel that with a healthy lifestyle anyone can be on top of their game.
Trust me when I say I love dessert just as much as the next person but it’s all about moderation. I know you’ve heard this a million times but it’s so true! We can’t expect ourselves to be on top of our game when we are fueling our bodies with the wrong kinds of foods! It is so important to eat a well balanced diet with lots of fruits and veggies, and an occasional dessert ;). With the right nutrients and vitamins our bodies can be at their very best!
Other than eating healthy we need to be working our bodies too! I find that too many people put their needs and health on the backseat burner, and that shouldn’t be the case. I know that it can be hard becasue people “lack time”, (I use the excuse every once in awhile too ;)) but really you don’t, you just need to find and make the time. If you truly want to feel your absolute best you’ll make the time. If you need to go earlier in the morning, later at night, in between classes, or whenever you have a few extra minutes. It doesn’t even have to be a crazy workout, you could just go for a walk round the block or stand at your desk. Anything to get your body up and moving is better than nothing!
I know some people need extra motivation or encouragement, and if that’s the case for you find a workout or encouragement buddy! Go to the gym with them or have them text you reminders to get up and get moving! I personally enjoy going to the gym with my mom or some friends. It helps make the experience more fun and enjoyable! So, if you haven’t done this before I suggest ya give it a go at least once! 🙂
Take today to nourish and fuel your body! Make today great and get moving!
