I live my life in a way thatย feelsย right. By that, I mean when I make a decision, I always pay attention to my initial reaction. Before my logical mind processes it, I get a feeling either in my gut or in the center of my chest. My gut reaction is typically a “no”. If I feel something in my gut that feels heavy or like a sucker punch, I know to walk away from that situation or decision. On the other hand, if it feels like a balloon is being blown up in the center of my chest, that’s a “yes” for me.ย  Continue reading “Where the Answers to All of Your Questions Lie”

Emotional First Aid

I found a talk to share for today’s post. I really enjoyed this but just wanted to advise that if you watch, please watch it to the end.

One of the most unhealthy habits I had was not only constantly complaining but not being able to let go of things that happened. It greatly contributed to fueling the negative mindset I had.

I’m not going to lie, weight wasn’t something I struggled with until recent years. I was very athletic growing up and was always in a competitive sport. Some because I enjoyed playing them and others because they helped keep me physically conditioned until my favorite sports came back in season. About 7 years ago, I put on quite a bit of weight. Between hormone imbalances, depression, and a desk job, I packed on the pounds. Before I knew it my test results Continue reading “How a Test Result Helped Changed My Perspective of Exercise”
