So it’s a new year, everything seems great, and it seems like the year is already starting off good. You have good intentions and you are determined to implement better habits that will get you better results with your life mentally, physically and spiritually. You have purposed in your heart to eat right, exercise regularly and get along with everyone in your life.

You go to bed feeling determined and looking forward to the next day which will be full of awesome new things. These new resolutions are going to transform you into a powerful new person. Little do you know just how hard it will be to get into the routine of actually doing it!

Ring! Ring! Ring!… as soon as your alarm goes off and you open your eyes for the first time in 8 hours, you realize that you do not have the same great feeling and positive outlook on life and the new possibilities that your new commitments can bring. You just plum don’t want to budge. You were enjoying your sleep and the wonderful dream you were having and you definitely do not feel like getting up to go jogging out in the cold winter air.

So what do you do? Do you just tell yourself that you will just post pone your goals for another day? Or do you push past that tendency to procrastinate and get stuck in your comfort zone? That critical moment when you are in that valley of decision, where a fraction of a second is enough time to decide the entire course of your day, is the most important factor in changing those bad habits into good ones.

If we never push past that first inclination to stay comfortable and not get up and get out, then we will never strengthen our will to fight for what we really want and need deep down inside. We must take the first step each day, the hardest step of them all, the step that involves self denial and much will power. But once we learn the power of simply tapping into our will power and committing to not letting anything or anyone keep us from our goals.. It suddenly becomes easier to keep on taking more steps…

Soon what started out as the hardest part of the process becomes so natural that it’s almost like second nature, and that is when we’ve won the inner battle with the laid back, lazy, undecided, wimpy, loser that wants nothing else but to be comfortable. No one needs him to ever win again.

Welcome to today’s post on health. We want to start this off by wishing you plenty of health and financial wellness in your life going into the new year. Our health is very important to us and we hope your health is just as important to you.

Many of our goals, dreams, and aspirations depend on our health and how much energy we have to put into the work and effort it takes to achieve them. We want to encourage you and remind you to always keep in mind that our priorities can either make or break us. Make sure your health is one of your top priorities.

Here are a few tips to help you maintain a healthier lifestyle full of passion and energy.

  1. Decrease, or Cut out, any consumption of processed foods. Pastries, pastas, refined sugar, white bread, and almost all packaged foods are processed and should be kept to a minimum in your diet if not completely excluded. Processed foods have a lot of empty calories and can be difficult for your digestive system to break down and assimilate.
  2. Include fresh juiced fruits and vegetables in your diet. Kale, carrots, cabbage, apples, spinach and celery are all great foods that provide a lot of great nutrition for your bodies needs, and can be easily juiced into a tasty, healthy drink.
  3. Drink tea or carbonated flavored water instead of soda. Soda is one of the leading contributors to diabetes. The sugar content in soda alone is enough to harm you, not to mention soda is highly acidic and bad for the body’s PH balance.
  4. Spend some quality time with yourself. We often look past our emotional health and don’t realize the impact it can have on us physically. Take some time to gather your thoughts and relax by yourself. It can really help you reboot.
  5. Exercise everyday. Exercising releases healthy hormones into our blood stream that help improve our mood. Exercise is also crucial to maintaining healthy circulation and overall strength.
  6. Get a good nights rest. Sleep is absolutely crucial for our body’s metabolism. Without adequate sleep our bodies can’t repair and reboot for the next day, causing us to be sluggish.
  7. Do what you love. Doing what you love is the best way to enjoy life and promote health in your life. So start living life the way you want to today! Don’t wait.
