Treat Yourself to a Healthy Lifestyle

At first, I was seeing it as torture, but this simple quote on the wall of my gym changed my perspective on exercise.

I see exercise as a form of self-respect.

Have you ever told that to yourself? I know I do.

What do you do to treat yourself? Most likely something to eat which is often something that isn’t healthy or a café latte.

Believe me, I am not perfect and I do the same, BUT I am working on it.

It won’t be easy, but I am determined to change my lifestyle. I am sure there will be days temptations will win, but if that happens, you pick yourself up and start again the next day.

Why don’t we treat ourselves to a day at the spa once in a while or go for a nice walk in the woods or at the beach instead? It can be relaxing and could open mindfulness. Who knows, maybe it will give you inspiration for a blog post or a drawing.

Let’s stop taking shortcuts and compromising ourselves. Let’s start treating ourselves to a healthier lifestyle and with respect! After all, everything starts with our health.

  1. GUILTY. I usually treat myself to a nice scoop of ice cream of a nice delicious cup of frozen yogurt! But I agree with you – everything starts with our health. Here’s to a healthier 2018! =)
