When you feel blue, out of energy, glued to the couch, and unable to move, stop for a moment. You aren’t dead yet and you have a choice.
Take a deep breath, focus on that breath, as my friend from Integrative Mindfulness taught me. Center yourself for a moment, then choose a different path.
Some ideas to begin down the new road…
Move. You don’t need to run the Boston Marathon, just begin to get some exercise. Walk to your mailbox, park a couple spaces farther away from the store, do some leg lifts while you sit on the couch in the evening. Just move.
Grab some WATER. Say you don’t like water? Try adding some mint leaves, a dash of no sugar added fruit juice, slice of lemon, or sliced strawberries. Dress it up, put it in a beautiful glass, and enjoy this life giving treat.
Eat more veggies. I don’t want to hear, “I don’t like them”. You’re a grown up, you can find ways to make veggies that you like to eat. Try new recipes. I prefer http://AllRecipes.com they have a TON of recipes, lots of reviews and we rarely fail when we choose a recipe to try. Don’t be afraid to doctor them up a bit to fit your tastes.
THERE. YOU. GO.
