Why I didn’t wait until January 1st to start making changes

Every year we all hear the same things. “I’m going to start going to the gym more.” “I’m going to quit smoking.” “I’m going to manage my finances better.”

 

Those are all GREAT things! You absolutely should create goals, and start taking steps to reach them. But why wait until the New Year? I promise I’m not being a hypocrite- this is actually something I believe in! Like in 2015 when I made the decision to eat healthier even through the holidays, continuing on after.

There’s no better time to make a change than right now. It doesn’t have to be a new year, or a Monday, or even first thing in the morning. This moment, the very moment that you’re living in is a perfect time to  start making changes.

 

The problem with waiting until a certain date on the calendar is the adoption of the “last meal” mentality. It’s smoking the rest of the pack, gorging on all the food you’ll miss, insane spending. Why start the New Year in the negative? It makes the change even harder, and it’s easier to feel like your goals are unattainable and quit sooner.

Today is a great day to make a change. Even if you’ve eaten an unhealthy breakfast, or had a cigarette. You can stop. Right now, right this second. YOU can make the decision that enough is enough.. And trust me, your body has no idea what day it is on the calendar.

 

Combine mindfulness and your goals, and you’re on the road to success! Just know, I’m rooting for you. We all are.

Days of rest are the best kind of productive.

I’ll keep today’s post short and sweet, today we had a lazy day.

I caught up on e-mails and bird box memes.

We snacked and snuggled.

Our well rested bodies are looking forward to making tomorrow perfect. Mental health days are necessary and beneficial. Just because you didn’t leave the house doesn’t mean you weren’t productive. Our lazy day gave us the opportunity to bond and recharge. We’re feeling healthier than ever.

Enjoy your weekend, and get some rest.

With healthy hearts,

Kate and the Kids.
