Changing Your Life Through Changes

Changing Your Life Through Changes. That was the main topic of discussion at this week’s meeting and we navigated through such things as reasons for fitness, nutrition, good and bad fats, separating meals from indulgences and good habits. WOW! There is power in identifying our good health ideals and recognizing what we need to change or incorporate to be a better we. I’ll say it again, we don’t all want the same things but in the end we all want to feel healthier.

I would like each of you to take a few minutes to write down a success that you have accomplished so far this session. We have been meeting 5 weeks now, how are you changing your direction to becoming a better you? We will take some time to share May 11th. If you check your calendar and find you haven’t been at many of the sessions it may be hard for you to come up with a success, hmmmm, just saying.

Need some mind jogging? Here are some topics we covered: Cleaning Clutter, Mindfulness (addictive behavior), Stress, Farmer’s Market, Resistant Starch, Communication Awareness, Take Back the Flavor, Changing Your Life Through Changes, Being Good at Aging, Summer Salad Recipes, Choices, Laughter and Friendships and Breathing. Now if you have not been regular with your attendance I do hope this helps you recommit.
