What's the WHY at the core of your health and wellness goals? If you don't have a strong WHY for taking care of yourself, you'll likely keep pushing your own wellness and self-care to the bottom of your priority list (I know I have done this!!). But to be your best for your loved ones and all your other priorities, you need to have energy and feel well.
Before I connected with my deepest motivations for wanting to be healthy, my self-care was put on the back burner time and time again. I didn't make time for exercise, I didn't have effective techniques in place to help me process my emotions or stress, and I struggled to eat well. Rather than eating healthy, nourishing foods, I ate a lot of JUNK. I felt icky and low on energy most of the time and was easily agitated. My low energy meant that I wasn't showing up as my best self with my loved ones OR in my work... my productivity wasn't where it could have been.
When I realized that I wanted to BE my BEST, HEALTHIEST self for my daughter - everything shifted. Not only do I want to be a good role model for her - modeling wellness, self-care, and self-love - I also want to have enough energy to be fully present with her so we can keep doing all the fun things we enjoy.
My second WHY is to be my best, healthiest self for my clients. Taking care of myself physically, emotionally, and spiritually gives me the energy I need to be fully present with them, too. I am more present and effective with my clients when I have done what I need to do to feel refreshed and nourished.
So, what's YOUR why?
Is it your loved ones, your work, or something else?
