Healthy Mind, Healthy Body

Over the past few week, I have learned a few things, a healthy mind leads to a healthy body.

I have learned this as you may have read before that I am not in the best mindstate when working. I am feeling very overwhelmed not with the job its self but with having to get a family ready and making it to the job on time.

I though starting a new workout routine would help with releasing some of my stress and making me feel good about myself. The workout routine has helped with one of the two, I am starting to feel great about myself and the good changes I am doing for the body. I am so happy that I have it in me to workout almost every evening and burn some calories.

As for the first part, The STRESS! That has not gone away at all. I still feel like I am going crazy every morning trying to get my kids out the door ready for school. Trying not to be late to a job, that in the end is not keeping my attention as my mind wonders throughout the day. And when that happens I feel like more stress has just hit me. The house is a mess and I never have time to clean. We are not eating meals when I want us to or eating as a family like we used to. I am just putting myself down more and more. that is not something that I want or need.

I don’t know at this time how to change these thoughts or a to break free from them stress. I have heard that sometimes just writing it down and talking about it can help.

As I have now written down some thoughts I now have to take the next step to change them. The wondering mind to me is the first step that needs to be changed. As you may have read my past post on why I am feeling the stress and wondering mind and am trying to change it one step at a time.

The road to happiness is the road I want to be on.

Making a change! Healthy Mind, Healthy Life!

My Fitness Challenge

 

As the month comes to an end I am almost finished with my 30-day fitness challenge. The highlights from this challenge for me is that my stamina is a lot longer. I can now last the reps that are required and feel like I can do a few more. I am also not finding it so hard to get started and that my body wants the workout.

During this past couple of weeks, the Easy 30 Day Challenge wasn’t enough so I also added in a beginner 8 pose yoga routine. This routine was a combination of the child’s pose, downward- facing dog pose, cobra pose, warrior pose 1 & 2, cow pose, Garland pose and the bridge pose. Doing these two routines together really helps with building my strength and balance. I also added a weighted ball to my routine just to give some resistance.

I am going to keep this routine up until the end of the month and move on to the next challenge level. With the next level, I am hoping that I can start losing some weight and building some muscle mass. I knew that wouldn’t come with my first month, as I really just want to build a stamina and be able to get through a full month of working out and enjoying it. now that I have almost accomplished that I can move on and set a new goal.

Positive

” One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day”

– @Motivation_Monday – Instagram.

I saw this quote pop up one morning on Instagram and after a few days I could not I realized how true it is. If you walk out your door and start your day on a negative side, your whole day will follow like a domino affect.

The reason for knowing this statement is true, is because this is me. I am one of those people that sometimes wakes up with a negative thoughts or attitude and it really ruins my whole day. I just think why do i have to get up? Why do i have to go to that stupid job? Why do i have to get the kids ready this morning? Why me?

I need to start waking up thinking that this day is going to be great! My job is great! My family is the best! My life is wonderful!

The easiest way to start this whole process of positive thinking may be just waking up on a Monday and saying this week is going to be great!

Yes, I agree Mondays can feel like the worst worst day, but if we start wake up thinking they are the best maybe they will be. Maybe they are the beginning of a new amazing week ahead. Why cant Mondays be great. They may just change our approach on the whole week ahead.

That job that sucks, that feels like its weighing you down. Start thinking that you are the best person for that position. You are the one that has all the knowledge, all the ideas, all the skills. Your company though so when they hired yous so you need to think so.

The people you work with, who you see more than anyone else when you really think of it, are great friends. They are the ones that are going to help picking you up when you are down at the office, or maybe its the other way around. You are helping pick them up from feeling down. Pass the positive energy and the off and the whole office could be thanking you.

If you really dislike your job and need out, then start thinking about in a positive way. If you think the job sucks and you will never find a new one then that will be your reality. If you want out do it in a positive way. Update your resume and start thinking that you are the next best hire out there. You are the one! The one that is going to change that company around. The one that is going to get that next interview you have. The one and only for the job.

Family life, Talk to you kids with a positive attitude. Tell them how great they are. How great of a family you are together. I know deep down inside that my family is not perfect but we love each other and cheer each other on. We are our number one supports for every thing. My kids know that they can count on my husband and i to always be there for them. And to your spouse, how much you love them. How they are one of the best things in your life. How you love doing things for them and you love receiving things from them in return. Even if its just a hug. They always say a little goes a long way.

So I am going to end this off by saying, think positive about yourself. Wake up tomorrow morning thinking you got this, and today is going to be an amazing day! If you do it with a smile on your face, I bet that smile stays all day and you will even get a few smiles in return.
