Hope everyone had a fantastic day! One more day until Holiday Time! Lots of good food, family, & friends having a peaceful day showing “Thanks”.
My one advice to you comes from this new segment I read tonight…. Be Authentic
“Being authentic is knowing who you are and confidently expressing this truth to others. It means that your thoughts, actions, words, and deeds are aligned with your underlying character. Becoming authentic- being true to yourself- is one of the most powerful things you can do for your mind, body, and spirit. I believe that at any point in time, you can do anything you want to do or become anything you want to be.” Christmas Abbott
Be true to yourself! 🙌🏼
Happy Monday all!!
I hope you set the tone for this week and are off to a good start!! 😊
Just finished reading my next segment and what I read is so fitting for Monday!!
Day 8: Fuel Yourself For Success
This segment is about “fueling” yourself mentally, physically, & spiritually.
Fuel your mind with positivity! “You can’t think out of the box if you’re sitting in the box.”
Fuel your body with nutritious and clean foods! “Choose your foods wisely, because having a nutritious diet is the foundation of great health and mental fitness.”
Fuel your spirit. Explore a form a spirituality that speaks to you- a religion, a practice like yoga, spiritual readings.. Another great way is by helping others!! “Performing acts of kindness makes you feel good, increases your happiness, improves your immune system, and forges connectedness to higher things”
✨Be mindful of your thoughts & actions
Today was a day of catching up- whether it be laundry, house work, business building… I was on track all day and kept moving until I was done!! 💪🏼
I leave you with my Day 7 reading.. Hope this motivates you to set the tone for the coming week…..
“What separates those who fail from those who achieve greatness is the reluctance to accept that event as failure. I believe that if you continue to do what you know you can, eventually, on a long enough timeline, you will achieve what you once thought was impossible. Most people fail because they give up on their goals. Giving up in my life is simply not an option, ever. Your mental state controls the rest of your being. It’s your hard drive for life.” Christmas Abbott
Have an awesome week!
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!!
Today I had a pretty balanced day.. I did some house work this morning, then went to visit mom with the kids, ran over to a kids birthday party and then finally ended my evening out to dinner with my husband and kids!
I just finished reading my next segment which was about setting a schedule for our days in order to succeed! You do not have to schedule minute by minute, but a quick list of things you would like to get done should be handy to you in order to have some form of organization.. And hey, if you don’t get to all of it- move it over to the next day..
“Schedules and priority task lists really work! Because I wake up knowing how I will spend my day, I can hit the ground running. I’ve prepared myself to succeed- that day. Whatever the day holds, I try to give my best and be as effective in the moment as I can.” Christmas Abbott
So, think about some things over the rest of your weekend and maybe try to get a rough draft of a list going.. See how it works for you! And make sure you do not leave out fun time for yourself!! 😉
Enjoy the rest of your evening!
We’ve made it to the weekend!! 😃
I’d say my week was hectic but I feel content that I got a lot done and I’m ready to enjoy some time with my family this weekend!
I will share what I have read this evening which I think is so fitting for tonight!!
Day 5: Visualize!
This segment was about visualization and how we can practice this day to day to achieve a specific goal we are working towards.. This goal can be anything from reaching a promotion at work, building our business to the next level, a fitness goal, relationship goals, and so much more!! “Visualization is very powerful. You can use it to break bad habits, form new ones, and get results you want.”
So tonight I visualize myself having a fun weekend with the people I love most!
Have a great weekend!
What are we thankful for today?? I am thankful that I made it to my gym class this morning! My little one was sick so my husband stayed home with him this morning and I was able to make it to class! 🙏🏼 It’s the little things in life I appreciate!!
Here’s a great quote from the current book I’m reading… Day 4- “You know how you feel after a really great workout- strong and renewed and bursting with energy? Well, in addition to keeping your body strong and flexible, exercise does wonders for your mind and spirit. It boosts self-esteem, gives you the satisfaction of striving for and attaining your goals, and helps keeps the blues at bay.” Exercise is great for the spirit, too. Sure, the changes in your physique are exciting, but you’ll begin to notice that not only do you feel better physically but you feel better spiritually as well. You’ll have more spiritual energy- the feeling that what you do in life matters.”
Yup!!! I’d say that’s pretty accurate!! 👍🏼
Here’s a delicious and super healthy recipe that’s quick and easy to put together!
Happy Wednesday All!
We are 1/2 way through this week and things are looking good so far! I am happy to say that I had a great workout this morning and felt good and full of energy the entire rest of my day!!
Just finished reading Day 3: This section was about a “powerful tool to help achieve our goals, reinforce a positive attitude, and help you obtain all that you want: Affirmations, which are short, formal statements repeated time and again, either verbally or mentally or in writing, that express your desired condition or outcome.”
My exercise was to create my Affirmation..
So, here it is:
Today, I will be my best version of myself and I will be content with how far I have come closer to more Love, Happiness, & Peace! 🙌🏼
Please feel free to share your affirmations!
Have a good night!
Today was an “ok” day… I got my workout done which was a plus! Did I eat according to my goals?? Not exactly.. But tomorrow is another day and a fresh start!!! I am grateful that I at least got my nutritious shake in for one of my meals! 👍🏼
Just finished reading Day 2 of my personal development book.. So, time to share::
Day 1: I leaned how to separate my goals into mental, physical, and spiritual. Mental goals deal with mental preparation, visualization, or productive thinking. Physical or personal goals are very actionable and have to do with day-to-day choices we make. And spiritual goals focus on personal characteristics to be practiced and developed.
Tonight (day 2), I will be expanding on these goals and thinking the following:
What am I most grateful for today?
What was the biggest success for me today?
What was the biggest challenge for today?
How did I overcome it?
What Can I do to make it a better day?
So- how about you try this! Would love to hear your feedback and how it helped you!
I hope everyone had a good start to their week! I was super busy but that’s a good thing.. I even tried to work on my goals that I spoke about in yesterday’s post which referred to self growth. There were a few obstacles today- but I managed to be a better person and “did the right thing”!
I also started a new book today which I am totally excited about!! It’s a personal development book, “The Badass Life” written by Christmas Abbott
This book focuses on 30 days to a lifetime of great habits- Body, Mind, and Spirit.It gives you exercises for you to practice to achieve your goals!! I just did my first journal exercise tonight, and I feel awesome already! As I get more into this book- I will definitely share some important parts!
Stay tuned this week for some new lifestyle tips, healthy recipes, and some good energy!!
Have a great night!
