Let the world know you are taking care of yourself! 🙌🏼🙌🏼
I loved this quote during this morning’s Peleton workout.
Yes- I’m the person that sometimes posts workout selfies or stats. And I used to worry what others would think. But let me tell you why I do it…
Because, unfortunately, this world is a bit of a toxic place 🤷🏻♀️ I mean, we are physically burdened with toxins (more on that when I explain why I post on my detox days), but social media (or any media) can also feel super toxic.
I will be the first to send support when anyone I know is struggling, but I’ll also be the first to cheer you on when you post your sweaty workout selfie or post workout smoothie or healthy salad for lunch.
Do I think everyone needs to be healthy 100% of the time?? No- that’s crazy and impossible. But, do I think we could all benefit from motivation to move, to choose nutritious foods over toxic ones, to use non toxic brands in bodies and our homes, to drink more water…all of that? Yeah, I really, REALLY do…
I’m in several accountability/support/healthy living groups all over and I can tell you, I have benefited tremendously. There are days I choose to eat something that may not serve my body or to skip a workout- that is healthy and balanced, my friends. But I can tell you this- I don’t stay there for long, because I surround myself with people who are also often making a healthy choice and then sharing it with our groups. And they make me do better too.
Research has shown time and time again that surrounding yourself with people with similar goals is HIGHLY effective in helping you reach yours. So post in those groups!! Cheer yourself on and cheer for others even louder!!
And don’t be shy about posting what you’re doing for the world to see too!! There are many people who may not love my posts, but there are also people who are motivated by them (grateful for those of you who have shared that with me). I know I’ve definitely been motivated to make healthy choices when seeing others post. 🙏🙏
So- let the world know you are taking care of yourself!! Whether it’s eating healthy, moving our bodies, choosing non toxic skincare or cleaning products…we all deserve to do the same and you never know who might move the needle in a positive direction that day because of what you’ve shared. 🌻🌻🌻
Happy Friday, friends. Cheers to you- and whatever healthy choices you make this weekend 👏👏
