If I want to be full of joyful energy, I must live a healthy lifestyle that provides all the energy I need. I also practice mental exercises daily that facilitate my healthy lifestyle and my optimism, happiness, and self-fulfilment.
My choice to be healthy includes eating nutritious foods. When I choose between picking up fast food and having a healthy meal, I opt for the healthy option. To make this easier, I plan and freeze leftovers, so there is always healthy food in the freezer to heat and eat on those harried days.
I make it a point to exercise every day. Even if I don’t have time for a workout, I stay active and make healthy choices. I take the stairs instead of the elevator. When I go shopping, I park further out in the parking lot. I play active games with my kids and pets and go for pleasant walks with my family and neighbours.
My joyful and adventurous attitude helps me feel vibrant. I pray or meditate every day to inspire and motivate me. I practice positive self-talk and repeat positive affirmations to banish negative thoughts and feelings. I venture out of my comfort zone to take on new adventures with gusto.
Today, I plan to make healthy choices and experience total enthusiasm in everything I do.
1. Do I choose to live a vibrant life?
2. Do my exercise choices and food match my real desires for how I’d rather live?
3. How can I add more enthusiasm to my daily life?
