Welcome to My Healthy Living Daily Plan

No more feeling down, unfocused and out of condition

It's so easy to get lost in the stresses and busyness of everyday living and forget who you are and where you are going. I for one have come to the stage where I need a daily reminder, so here it is- "The Healthy Living Well Daily Plan" that I share with you as a declaration and reminder. At least when life gets tough, it will help me to keep going and I hope that it will do the same for you. If you look down this lens you will find places where you can share your ideas and thoughts too. Having reached middle age I have learned a few things that work for me and I hope they will work for you too.

We could all contribute and benefit more from life if we had something to help us to stay focused and keep going to give us a better life.

Step 1- Thankfulness

Be Thankful and see the difference it makes!

Even as you awake, think of 5 things to be thankful for in the day ahead, before getting out of bed, and then think of 5 things from the day that has just passed, before you drop off at night.

Step 2- Quietness and Words of Life - To Inspire Healthy Living

Spend some time preparing for your day

..over your morning cuppa. Enjoy the quietness of the morning, without any distractions. It only needs to be as long as it takes to drink your cuppa, so think of it as an investment to enable you to be active, rather than passively going through the day. Consciously breath deeply. Read something to inspire you, such as verses from the Bible (there is an amazing amount of wisdom in Proverbs) or your favourite encouraging quotes. Let go of lies that you know you believe. Love the truth and you will know the power of allowing words of truth to propel you through the day and replace the lies that hold you back. If I am walking or driving off first thing, I like to continue in this mode during the journey, gradually thinking about what lies ahead.

Step 3- Plan Exercise Into Your Day

Whether you use aerobics, swimming or plan a walk on a daily basis..

It won't happen unless your mind is set on it, so decide at the beginning of the day that you will do something to exercise your body for your well being and health. I have adopted the mindset that I will only use my car if it isn't possible to walk. Sure it takes time, but it is certainly worth it and saves me money and the environment from pollution. Take advantage and enjoy the countryside where you live. I am fortunate to live on the coast and so really enjoy my walks along by the sea.

Step 4- Dare To Dream

Let Other People's Success Stories Inspire You!

Dream big and mix with and learn from people who have attained such dreams.

Step 5- Set Yourself Realistic Goals-

Use a calendar or diary to plan each day, one step at a time and tick them off as you attain each one.

Each day I'm getting closer to my goals.

Step 6- Decide To Eat A Healthy Diet Today

Choose the healthiest foods with lots of fresh, unprocessed food

Enjoy the vibrant colours and tastes of good food.

Try something new and invest in a good cookbook to help and inspire you. Remember, if you eat well, you will live well and may not need all those pills. Nothing can replace a healthy diet! Make it easier for yourself by planning a week's menu with a shopping list which you stick to, to avoid the temptation of tucking into unhealthy stuff when you can't be bothered. Have healthy snacks readily available, such as nuts, fruit, oatcakes etc. If cooking is a problem, cook in bulk and freeze extra portions for later.

Step 7-People Are Important

We all need one another.

How can I contribute to someone today?

To laugh or cry....What can I give? Who do I need to forgive?

Step 8- Finally At The End Of Each Day

Take a moment to look back for your well being and health

Release any negative emotions in private. Let go of the frustrations and stresses of each day, so that the next day you can begin afresh with a clean sheet. Make a note of anything you need to work on particularly, enlisting help where necessary. Some people find it helpful to play a musical instrument, such as the drums, as a method of releasing their emotions.

Express Yourself Drumming

Drumming is about feeling alive and being creative. It's about letting off steam and having fun. It is also about being focused and gaining more confidence.
