Music, movement, relaxation, food, plants, optimism, having meaning in one’s life, connection with others, pets and many other things we take for granted have extraordinary healing powers.
Activity and Exercise
Physical activity brings “a sense of purpose and value, a better quality of life, improved sleep, and reduced stress, as well as stronger relationships and social connectedness.
Attitude and Emotions
When it comes to implementing change, attitude makes all the difference. With a step-by-step approach, a healthy lifestyle is something that can be built over time.
Making Change Manageable
Living a healthier lifestyle can sometimes feel overwhelming, confusing, and all-consuming. The idea of giving up our favorite foods or force-feeding ourselves foods we don’t like for the sake of health is simply not a good motivator!
Little by little we’ll crowd out the bad choices by choosing healthy alternatives that we actually enjoy. These conscious choices turn into healthy habits and something very exciting happens: we start feeling better! From there, staying the course is that much easier.
