If you keep doing the same thing you will keep getting the same result. This is why I’m doing #stylingcurvyactivechange which just means I’m actively trying to introduce wellness and change into my life. Change that improves my overall wellbeing.
I’ve even created a hashtag so you can all join in. Post your photos on social media of your ‘active change’ and use the hashtag #stylingcurvyactivechange so I can cheer you on 🙂
One of my changes is juicing, everyday. I don’t ‘actually’ juice it myself because I don’t own a fancy pants juicer…or even any juicer. I’m also being honest with myself, I know that I don’t have the time or even dedication to buy the veg everyday. So I’ve found a great local juice place and I visit them instead.
Today it’s carrot, pineapple and sweet potato.
I’m very partial to the assorted green juices too..
Some days I have 2 bottles of juice (it’s pure not watered down) but everyday I make sure I have at least one. With 1kg of produce in each bottle I’m making sure I get that injection of nutrition.
Because I’m juicing I know I need to drink plenty of extra water which is hard to do in winter but I’ve been getting the water in so I’ve actually created another active change, win win✔️
I’m also doing some extra fitness with walking and tomorrow I start a new 10 week yoga course, wellness from the inside out. See, once I started creating change it changed the way I was living and the positive momentum took over. Nothing huge, just achievable.
Another reason for saying ‘yes’ to a Monday morning yoga class was I liked the idea of starting my week right, and taking some regular time out just for me. This decision has actually led me to take no work appointments until after 1pm on a Monday…a change I really needed to implement.
Look, I know that juicing and yoga aren’t for everyone and I’m cool with that. Creating active change and wellness can mean different things for you, it might be about health and wellness but it should mean introducing change that will benefit you.
SOME ACTIVE CHANGE IDEAS
♥ eating meals at the dinner table instead of the couch (guilty)
♥ getting into the garden more often
♥ watching less T.V. and reading more
♥ using your best teacup every day
♥ picking up the phone instead of texting
♥ catching up with friends more often
♥ keep a gratitude journal
♥ speak kind words to your body
♥ get more sleep
♥ move your body more
♥ gossip less
See, it’s all about creating achievable goals, no crazy stuff. Goals that will improve your overall wellbeing.
I’m off to finish that sweet potato juice and do some reading.
Tell me, what changes for your health and general wellness would you would like to introduce?
Til next time,
