No Longer Living on Leftovers

by youcannow


[This is a Wellness Wednesday contribution with Fitness & Nutrition Life Coach Flossie Alexander of You Can NOW! Coaching.]

In the mist of a busy day and juggling demands sometimes we find ourselves reaching for the fast-food or the vending machine snack. We might even be telling ourselves, “I’ll have more time next week to make a better choice”.

Our lives are filled with busy times, demands and responsibilities. Far too often it’s tempting to put everything else before taking good care of ourselves. When we do this too often we find that we’re living on the “leftovers” of our own life and turn to food for comfort. Maybe we sit down in the evening to our favorite junk-food and think, “I deserve this!” But, how do you feel after you eat it? Do you feel guilty, tired and uncomfortably full? Do you deserve to feel miserable?

Making yourself a priority in your own life will fill you with a sense of pride and build self-esteem. The action of putting yourself in the mist of chaos will send the message to every brain cell that you’re important!

You can start to develop this habit by simply finding time to take care of yourself one time each day. Get away from your desk to eat lunch, take the time for a gentle walk before dinner, ask your husband to watch the kids, or ask a work college for help with a project that’s too demanding.

How does this feel? Notice a difference?

Make yourself a star in your own life. Taking care of yourself and taking steps into a healthy lifestyle will insure that you’ve got the health and the energy for all the demands in the future.

Yours in Health,
