Remember This While On Your Path

wellness quote,matthew killorin,health

We’ve all been there.

While on our path to self-improvement it seems like we’re stuck, or maybe not making a dent in those long-range goals.

Well, that’s when we must remember wellness is a lifelong journey and if it seems like we’re not doing anything substantial – it’s still okay.

Remember, every positive action, thought or intention is important – and it matters.

Here are the small things I’ve done recently that I think matter –

I drink more water throughout the day.

I read spiritual teachings or philosophy of the great masters for a few minutes each day.

I walk every day.

I’ve developed a brief yoga practice that I try to deepen each day.

I meditate at least ten minutes every day.

I don’t envy others (or at least catch my thinking when I do).

I remind myself to breathe consciously.

I bought an adult / mindfulness coloring book and work in it a few minutes each day.

Have you walked today?

With all the fancy, hi-tech ways to workout and stay in shape these days it’s easy to forget the benefits of walking.

Yeah, I know it sounds really boring, but walking has tons of health benefits with almost no bad side effects (like more intense activities have).

Check out the article below from Phil Mutz at Little Things for a dose of walking motivation.

“From a very young age, I was taught that exercise is good for my health. This may seem pretty obvious, but that doesn’t mean I always make exercise a priority. After all, going to the gym every day can be an extremely large commitment.” – Phil Mutz

Let’s educate ourselves on some of the myths about the body’s metabolism. There’s a lot of misinformation out there about this important health topic. For example, did you know many of the claims about metabolism-boosting foods is highly exaggerated?

A new article from Huffington Post and Nicholas Knock highlight the most common beliefs about how metabolism affects weight loss.

“When it comes to ruining your health goals, metabolism is an easy culprit because it can’t really defend itself. It’s time to put an end to the unfair accusations by debunking these metabolic myths.” – Nicholas Knock
