FIVE STEPS TO BETTER HEALTH

Get ready to feel better.  The following five steps are not easy, but if you can take these five steps, your life will improve. 

 STEP ONE: STUDY YOUR SCHEDULE

If you and I want to feel great, we have to eat the right foods and exercise.  This takes planning. While we wish that our lives could fall magically into place they do not. We have to make diet and exercise a priority, and that means scheduling time for food shopping and cooking and for exercise.

STEP TWO: INTENSIFY YOUR DISCIPLINE

Without discipline we are lost.  It becomes difficult to push our plates away when well-meaning relatives insist we have a second helping of a dish that has taken hours and hours to prepare ~ “just for us.”  It becomes hard to excuse ourselves early in the evening because we must get up in the morning to exercise before work.  One of the hardest challenges is to stick to a diet and exercise plan when surrounded by people who do not care much about diet and exercise.  We must call on an intense level of discipline in order to stick to our goals.

STEP THREE:  CALL ON YOUR PATIENCE

It takes time to make changes.  Rome was not built in a day, and we are not going to lose thirty pounds in a day either.  For those of us who have a lot of weight to lose, the road to happiness is a long road, and we must enjoy ourselves along the way, as we learn to make food less of a priority in our lives. For those of us who have physical mobility problems and disabilities, we must have patience as we do the recommended exercises and therapies.  We can become more mobile than we have been, if we have patience.

STEP FOUR:  REMEMBER TO LOVE

First and foremost, we must love ourselves. We must love ourselves enough to have the courage to make the changes we need to make in order to live happier and healthier lives.  When we feel depressed and angry that we are not changing as fast as we would like, we need to give ourselves a huge dose of love.

STEP FIVE:  BE SURE TO LAUGH

Ha Ha Ha, and say it again, Ha Ha Ha. Let’s be silly, let’s be sarcastic sometimes, and yes, let’s be downright ridiculous.  We need to laugh at ourselves and stop taking life so seriously.  Now that may appear to be a contradiction when we are trying so hard to plan our schedules, discipline ourselves, have patience as we make changes and be loving and kind to ourselves.  But the laughter and fun is our biggest reward, and without it we are surely to give up too soon.  Laugh and laugh and laugh, and as we laugh, we become exuberant and ready to take on another disciplined day.

I can do it, you can do it, we can do it!
