Priorities

In a rush push world where sometimes it feels like we are trying our darndest to catch up to what needed to be done yesterday, or even last week, it can be very easy to forget the one thing you need to actually do all those things you need to do. You.

And, in the midst of all the hustle bustle and to do lists and grocery shopping and laundry you might forget to take care of the one thing that is truly truly uncontestably important. You.

When work deadlines and house stuff, or car repairs and bills take over your life it can be very easy to forget the one reason you actually do all of these things. You.

And, sometimes, we get so caught up in eating right, and drinking right, that we forget all the other things that help us stay healthy. Like doing our nails. Or getting a great hair cut. Or wearing our best dress.

Sometimes, it is these things that provide the most motivation of all. Sometimes, these things remind us who it is we are trying to be healthy for, and how wonderful that person truly is.

Taking care of ourselves, taking care of yourself is honestly and truly a non-negotiable step to being healthy.

Sure, cardio does not hurt.

Drinking lots of water is good for you, of course.

But, taking a few minutes each day or week to take care of you, from the inside out, and from the outside in, can also do you wonders.

Like a hot bath.

Or a short drive.

Or a funny movie.

Sometimes, it is the little things that remind us why we try so hard to be healthy. It’s for this. To enjoy all the wonderful things that being healthy allows us to enjoy.
