School Year Theme and Physical Happiness
This year we decided to have a back-to-school theme. This would help us not only have a reminder for our school efforts, but in all areas of our life and family.
The theme is FOCUS.
I thought this can also be a theme for anyone trying to change their lifestyle to a healthier one.
Without some serious FOCUS, your chances of changing your lifestyle are pretty slim..or should I say...NOT slim?!
You have to have this FOCUS to be able to really stick to a new program, especially in the beginning, when bad habits or addictions are trying to "lull" you back to them.
It is also important to have your FOCUS be on the right things! If you are constantly focused on "I miss eating this...." or "I hate having to exercise..," your FOCUS on the positive attributes of a healthier life are eventually going to succumb to the negative views you perpetuate.
Start with small areas of FOCUS. Maybe it is drinking more water, and less soda. Maybe it is getting better sleep. Maybe it is eliminating one bad eating habit from your lifestyle. Maybe it is simply taking your vitamins. These "small" areas lead to HUGE improvements, and the HUGE consequences of feeling better, looking better, and a better lifestyle in general!
I invite you to join in on the FOCUS of the new school year....or the new lifestyle/body/health that you are looking to achieve!
“It's not what's happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it's your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you're going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny.”
