Better health doesn’t happen overnight. It isn’t the result of finding the PERFECT PLAN. It also isn’t random, or lucky, or genetic. Better health comes from choosing to care for yourself, day in and day out. Here are ten reasons why you can focus on your health today, and ten ways to do it.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. You are the only one who can love yourself enough to care for yourself. No matter the wounds from your past, the truth is that you are worth caring for.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. You have one body to live in for the rest of your life. Regardless of that body’s size, shape, limitations, or genetics, you can optimize your expression of health by establishing healthy habits to be the foundation of your day.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. If what’s going on between your ears is adding to your struggle, know that there are tools, and if you need them, professionals who can help you sort those things out. You can try journaling, meditation, affirmations, and practicing gratitude, and if you need professional help, please reach out.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. Moving your body releases feel-good hormones and keeps things loose! Motion is life, and everyone deserves to move their bodies in a joyful way. Find a way to move today.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. You deserve to sleep, to allow your body to rest and restore itself. Sleep is healing. Get seven to nine hours of good sleep every night, and don’t feel like you are wasting time. Relish the time you set aside to rest.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. Your body is seventy percent water, and for everything to function on a cellular level, you need to drink water every day. You can start right away in the morning, and aim for 50-75% of your body weight, in ounces.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. You deserve to eat delicious foods full of nutrition that will fuel your body with energy and vitality. Find healthy foods that you enjoy, prepare them with care, and share them with people that you love. If you need to learn more about how to do this, reach out. At TruBalance Health, we’re here for you.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. If you are experiencing symptoms of poor health, get curious. Ask not only what you can do to deal with the symptom, but also ask what is causing the problem. Advocate for yourself and for your health.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. You can choose what you consume, on every level. You can choose what you drink, what you eat, what you watch, what you listen to, what you read. You can choose things that bring you hope, energy, and inspiration.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. Struggle is necessary for change. There is opportunity, there is hope, there is possibility, for you, and you can create change.
Did you notice a theme? The bottom line is that you are worth it. Wherever you are, there is another level for you, and as you seek to live out your purpose, you can meet those challenges and struggle through them in order to change. No one can want it more than you, and you deserve it.
