There are only 3 weeks left until the official start of Spring and if you are like me and live in California, chances are Spring has already sprung. I love this season because it means the long winter is over and life is renewed. I love planting a garden (at my mom’s) and doing my spring cleaning. But is also a time when I really commit to my health. We all make New Years Resolutions but when Spring comes around it’s a chance to evaluate what is working and what isn’t.
I know life gets busy but before you say “I don’t have time” remember that there are a ton of things you do on a regular basis that you would never skip, no matter how busy you are like doing the dishes and brushing your teeth. Health should be like that too! It should become habit to take care of yourself. I have some things that I do every week for my health and I have made a pact to myself that I will do these things. I even put them on my calendar to remind myself just like I would remind myself of a work meeting or car service appointment.
There was a time when I was so stressed out that I felt like I was going to have a nervous breakdown. I was putting everything in the world ahead of myself and I will not do that any longer. Take care of yourself first and everything else will fall into place.
