“Wow, you look and sound like you are glowing today”, someone said to me at work the other day, “What’s going on?” “I don’t know maybe it is because I exercised this morning” , I said. It truly was because I was taking better care of myself and am committed to working towards getting healthier every day. There is an undeniable link between feeling healthy and feeling happy. How can we meet our goals when our body isn’t feeling up to par? Tiredness aches and pains, and feeling under the weather can really get in the way of our goals. It is very important that we nourish our bodies with adequate amounts of the right foods, condition ourselves to maintain and build strong bones and muscles, rest properly at night, and generally adhere to a healthy regimen if we expect to feel positive emotions. So this week make a commitment to take better care of yourself. Maybe it is a half-hour of exercise or passing on the desert or eating half of your normal portion of a meal or going to sleep an hour earlier, just do what makes you feel stronger and more focused, it will take you far!
