What does a healthy life look like, or more importantly, feel like to me?
It’s a life where I’ve turned away, for even small moments of time, from the fast pace of the age we live in. Where I decide, purposefully, which activities to participate in, rather than drifting thoughtlessly from one activity to the next.
It’s a life filled with exercise, that invigorates and energizes my body, and food that supports my body’s functioning…with maybe a little sugar sprinkled in every once in a while, because although I try to avoid it, I do love chocolate!
It’s showing up to time with my family as the BEST version of myself, rather than the stressed out, frazzled one, that saves the best for everyone, but them.
It’s a life where each day is filled with happiness, peace and contentment!
What I’m learning from Dr. Brene Brown’s book, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are, is that pivotal to a healthy, fulfilling life, is play.
Play simply for the sake of play. And without it, I may easily fail on my quest to lead, in her terms, a more, “wholehearted life.”
