Disclosure: I wrote this blog post as part of a movement by Weight Watchers to encourage people to remember that loving yourself starts with taking care of your healthy everyday. Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative, are my own.
When this project hit my inbox I seriously screamed at my husband that this was totally me and I would be honored to work on it. All because I am a huge advocate of loving yourself. I didn't get to this point in my life for years but when I did, it was clear that in order to be happy with me I had to work on my insides first and eventually the outside works itself out. Naturally change is incredibly hard for anyone and you simply don't have to wait till the new year every year to set new goals - you can start on any given day. And my simple start happened on February 14th and I've been going strong for a whole week! The idea behind simple start is doing small activities little by little to make an easy transition to getting healthy. Think of it as choose your own adventure! I decided to tackle 6 activities and do them everyday.
My days and nights are split between working from home and attending events - snacking is inevitable and I am totally guilty of having chocolate in my bag. I attended a conference and brought fruit in another bag to hold me over till mealtime. I was so proud of myself!
I usually am good about "me" time but it consists of checking Instagram while laying in bed or binge watching bad reality tv. I decided to curl up on the couch and re-read one of my favorite books before bed this week!
So I totally didn't buy this pair but rewarding myself consists of shoe shopping. I am at my happiest when I'm checking out new shoes.
Do you do any of these activities right now?
Do you see yourself committing to one or all of these activities in the future?
