After a fast paced visit to the farmers markets on Saturday, in and out like lighting to buzz home to prep for the first health talk event of 2017 I got lost in a trail of thoughts (as women can so easily do) and the word gratitude kept resurfacing and ability to have an attitude of gratitude.
As I drove home watching people running, walking and getting ready for a day at the beach I imagined, what if we all came from a place of gratitude?
Gratitude when we get red lights, for rainy days, for negative relationships, for price increases, for injuries… What would our world be like?
(eye roll) I know right, the whole WORLD. A bit far fetched to change the world as it’s completely out of our control so I wont even go there. Rather what can we control? Ourselves.
On a scale of 1-10 where’s your attitude?
Imagine coming from a place of Gratitude during instances like I mentioned above. Being grateful for having your flight delayed, for dropping and smashing your phone, for getting an overdue bill, for gaining weight or loosing fitness…
Ponder on that for a moment, I’m about to ramble.
Many people I come in contact with have big sights set on achieving big goals with their health which I LOVE! These goals require consistency, time and commitment.
Do you have health goals, intentions or visions for yourself?
If you could choose only 1 thing to do embrace and do first, what would it be?
Eat more greens, exercise daily, give up chocolate, drink more water…
These are all things I have no doubt will play a role in assisting you with what you’re working towards achieving but what matters the most in my mind is, your attitude.
Have you ever met someone who’s a picture of beaming health yet is completely unhappy? I sure haven’t.
You can’t become healthy with an unhappy mindset, it’s almost completely impossible. Happy comes first and healthy follows.
HAPPY MIND = HEALTHY BODY
It’s generally the smallest and simplest tips that lead you through the door of change. Try starting with this one; shifting attitude.
Starting each day with gratitude as your attitude would that improve your happiness or reduce your happiness? Finishing everyday on a gratitude high rather than a big dumping low?
Awesome, let’s embrace an attitude of gratitude together. PLUS it’s Free! Cost’s you nothing financially and you can take it anywhere with you. A blender on the other hand, ouch – heavy and a worthy investment.
Here are some ways I add more attitude to my life day.
