The tagline of Healthy Tipping Point is “When everyday decisions add up to something amazing.” For years, I struggled with being healthy because I thought healthy = perfection. If I wasn’t perfect (um, and who is?), I had “blown it.” And then all hell broke loose.
Now, I realize that being healthy is about making small steps towards a larger healthy goal. Each little step forward counts, and when you manage to make healthy choices a habit, you achieve something amazing.
It’s helped me so much over the years to just look at each day, each meal, each snack and think, “What healthy choices can I make RIGHT NOW?” It motivates me to go for a run, add a vegetable to my plate, or take a few minutes to meditate. I never feel overwhelmed. And when I do engage in not-so-healthy behaviors, it’s easier to get back on track because I don’t demand perfection – all I have to do is make one more healthy decision.
To inspire and motivate others, I encourage you to leave a comment describing ONE healthy decision you made yesterday or today. How are you improving your life? What are you doing to make your mind, emotions, and body feel good?
