The truth of the matter is, there is no right or wrong way to be healthy. There is no competition, method, or fad that is going to work for everyone. I find that to be very fascinating about health and nutrition. As much as we hear and learn about the benefits of certain foods, or the multi-vitamins we should be taking, it’s amazing how unique each and every one of us really is.
Today, I really want to focus on honing in on what works for you and understanding your own self. I think that because of how different we all are, it can be overwhelming to be surrounded by so many different options of eating healthy, exercise, and overall well-being. It’s fun to try out new things, experiment with a meal plan, or join in a fitness challenge. However, always understand that what works for one person may not work for you, and that’s okay. The important thing is to feel good in your own skin and to never stop being you.
As people, we are constantly driven towards goals and dreams, but don’t ever let that stop you from enjoying the things (or food) you love. Aim to be the best version of yourself. For some of you, maybe you’re thinking “what does this have to do with food at all?” But really, how we treat our bodies is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves. It feeds into all the other areas of our lives, including the relationships we have with others.
Sometimes I feel so wrapped up over all these different aspects of health and nutrition because there is so much information out there! At the same time, I feel lucky to be able to constantly learn and see what works for me. I’m a very curious person by nature and will never stop asking questions. I also feel grateful to have a support system of friends and family that I can always discuss various health topics with, cook with, offer and receive encouragement from, or experiment with on these very things!
I will continue to promote healthy eating and wellness. I think it’s important though to live a balanced life, full of the things you enjoy, and with the understanding that we are all unique. I hope stopping by has given you something lighthearted and enjoyable to think about, and thanks for taking the time to read my random thoughts! Happy Wednesday!
