I think being healthy is not always about eating right and exercising to your max. Sometimes being healthy is merely about a mindset. It’s about being happy and joyful. So, at times I will tell myself, “don’t let it steal your joy.” My sister-in-law taught me this and I’m so glad she did. I love that thought because so many times we (I mean I) can let the little things get in the way of my joy or simply enjoying something. I think we all love being happy and at times it’s as easy as reminding yourself about what brings us joy.
For me some things that bring me joy are:
– A Hug from my boys
– Lying with my dogs
– Reading a good book
– Church on Sunday morning
– A Good Sweat
– The Beach
– Watching my boys hit a ball, catch a ball, score or perform
– A finished project
– When teaching a workout class just clicks
– A Warm Fire
-My Highschool Friends
-Being with Girlfriends
-When my boys are nice to each other
-Preparing good food for my family
Find your joy and don’t let “IT” steal your joy!
What brings you joy? How cheesy is my list?
