Happy #SelfLove Sunday!
No preachy video today! LOL! I want to remind you to take care of your heart, and by that I mean your cardiovascular health. As a whole health advocate, I cannot stress how important it is to not only take care of your mental wellbeing, but also your physical wellbeing.
I know how challenging it can be to get up every morning and exercise because I suffer from lack of motivation at times too! I’m human, but I never let too much time pass in between my exercise days and my non-exercise days. It can be easy to get behind and let your physical health fall by the wayside if you are not mindful and actively thinking about your health.
SO, here is your reminder that physical fitness is #selflove and #selflove means putting your physical wellbeing first and foremost. You should do at least one thing for yourself first thing in the morning and hopefully it’s exercise to get your day off to a positive start and on track for a great day!
I absolutely love lifting weights, but when it comes to cardio I’m like the Grinch! I really don’t like it, but I do it for heart health and fatloss. I lost my mother to heart disease. She never exercised and smoked cigarettes daily. Eventually, she had four strokes and two heart attacks, which led to congestive heart failure and eventually her death. Watching my mother struggle with her mental and physical health my entire life is what has motivated me to do and want better for myself.
If you don’t have someone in your life to keep you motivated, hopefully I have helped you today! HAPPY #SELFLOVE!
Maintaining consistent effort in your self-love journey only helps to improve your love and relationship with yourself. Just like in a partnership, marriage, friendship, etc., you have to put forth effort consistently. Here’s why…
Have you ever wanted to do something so bad yet didn’t want to go solo so you decided not to go, but later found out you missed out on a really good thing?
I have done this a million times, and a million times I have wanted to kick myself because I found out I missed out on something really nice. Well, I have gotten to a point in my life where I have realized life is too short to wait on others to enjoy something that really interests me. Of course I would prefer to have someone to share experiences with, but it doesn’t always work out that way.
If you can’t find someone to go, it doesn’t mean you can’t go. It is more important that you JUST GO, if possible! You never really know the outcome of attending alone. It is more than likely that you will make a new friend, or run into someone you know whom you had know idea had similar interests. You may find someone whom you can ultimately hang out with going forward.
It is easy to focus on the negative which blocks you from enjoying your life, but it is important to consider the positive alternatives, step out of your comfort zone, and just do what you like to do!

Many of the reasons we have health issues as we get older is because we have never really paid attention to what we consume, and a lot of the things we consume are really bad for us. If you truly love yourself, you will start paying attention to things you consume and their effects on your health – mentally and physically.
From my own research, I have learned a lot about clean eating, health, wellness and fitness, but there is always more to learn. No one knows everything. So, I met with my friend Viktoria, a Holistic Health & Nutrition Coach, and I have learned so much more!

We have a tendency to impose our own expectations on others and situations. It can cause discord, instability, emotional stress, anxiety and disappointment. We must stop having so many expectations of others for our own mental health.
When I stopped having expectations in certain situations, it always felt like a weight had been lifted. It is amazing how much more you can enjoy just being or doing without being attached to specific outcomes. It allows you to savor the moment(s) without prejudice!
