Day 6 Eat Right and Be Fit! Part 2

Day 6: Eat Right and Be Fit. Part II – Small Changes challenge.

Hello to all of the Happiness-Seekers out there!

We got your attention!

We got your attention with Batman!

 

It is time for your weekly challenge!

This week is all about being the healthiest, strongest you that you can be.

Every year we make a resolution that will supposedly change our lives for the better. We tend to be highly ambitious and set very big goals. Most of the time we begin actively living this big goal on January 1st, the first day of the new year. Some of these big goals include:

 

– To eat healthier

– To lose a large amount of weight

– To exercise on a regular basis

– To be more gracious and mindful

– To be kinder

– to spend more time with friends and loved ones

– To spend less money or manage financially with a set budget

…and a myriad of other things that we pledge to the universe that we will do.

 

This time it is different. It is not New Year’s Eve, although you are going to make a decision to be a healthier you, because you want to. You will decide to become fit and eat nutritious food because you like the idea of feeling strong and alive.

When you make a change for the right reasons you are more likely to be successful.
