This month I really want to write about choices. Every day we encounter varying amounts of choices. What shoes do I wear? What shall we all have for breakfast? How am I going to get me and the family out on time? What will I cook for dinner? And the list goes on and on. You would think we would all be masters of making choices that benefit us and enhance our life. So why is it, sometimes we make choices that don’t enhance our well being, our relationships, our finances, our jobs etc etc. Well, because life doesn’t always work the way we want it to I guess.
Although we don’t have control over some situations, we do have control over how we react. We have a choice. We can choose how we deal with whatever life throws at us. So lets put this into choices about health. When you wake in the morning you have a choice of how you are going to fuel your body, how you are going to get your body moving, choose wisely. When the morning is well under way, you have a choice on what you do to sustain a good energy. Think about lunch, how do you want to feel until dinner, make your choices accordingly. As I have said before, if you fuel your body on sugar, quick releasing carbs, empty calories, you will feel rubbish, sluggish, low mood, have brain fog, tired. If you fuel yourself with sustaining nutrients you will feel awesome. Your choice.
Make a good choice on how you want your body to function. Move, dance, lift weights, run, yoga whatever it takes to get the blood pumping around your body to release those endorphins.
Choose decisions that will nourish your soul, think positive thoughts and if that is hard, make a choice to make someone else feel better, which in turn will hopefully make you feel better.
If you have a bad day and you make bad choices in regards to your health, get back on the healthy choices as soon as you can. Even better, have some support for times when you feel you are about to make negative choices, you can contact them and hopefully they can help you with a more positive option.
There is an anonymous quote ‘Choices, not circumstances, determines your success.’ What do you choose?
