Wellness Check-In

Over the past few weeks it has been so incredibly hard to focus on my wellness pillars. Everything from reading books, to listening to professional development podcasts, to working out, to focusing on the present, to eating clean has been an uphill battle it seems. I am doing my best but if I am being honest, I am not exactly where I want to be.

It’s such a slippery slope. A few small not-so-great decisions turn into a day full of bad decisions. And that can spiral into a week filled with unhealthy decisions. It can happen in the blink of an eye, which is the scary part.

But one new tool I have in my life this year is discipline. Becoming disciplined has completely transformed so many areas of my life over the course of the year. I couldn’t see it along the way, but as I look at my overall healthier state now, I almost can’t believe the person I was before.

So as I find myself struggling a bit to stay focused on my wellness pillars, I will lean on my faith that small positive decisions each day will continue to open doors in my life. I will just keep doing my best and focusing on the small decisions each day. It’s worked so well for me before so I know the sky is the limit if I keep moving ahead.

This Week in Review

The first full week of Autumn has been very eye opening for me. I realized that although it is my favorite season, it tends to be the season when life is busiest for me. Despite my best efforts I have just been overwhelmed and out of sync this week. Life has been hectic is every way, shape and form.

But after taking stock of week one, I realized that I need to reset myself. And I also realized it is completely okay to stop the train that is life to make sure it is securely on track. In order to fully embrace the season I love so much, I will take the rest of the week to stop and remember the things that are most important to me. My plan to reset involves:

  • Creating/updating to do lists
  • Pausing to deep clean up all of my spaces
  • Creating time each day to read and listen to some favorite podcasts
  • Focus on increasing my vegetable and water intake each day.
  • Remember to do one thing each day that reminds me of the season I love so much.

I actually look forward to resetting myself this week. I refuse to waste another moment of Autumn.
