When I kicked off the year with the intention of making it the greatest year ever, I was full of hope, maybe a bit of delusion. So how did I far 6 months in? If I could start all over again, what would I change? Taking some steps into improving your life is not easy but well worth it. Here are my top 2016 resolutions and the impact it had on my life.
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” – Barack Obama
Wow I didn’t pick the easiest resolution to start with. Hell, even eating healthier sounds more fun than cut my expenses and earn more cash. It was actually pretty easy to cut down on spending in the first few months. Winter made it harder to go out to eat and drinks, so I focused on home cooking. I’ve also stopping visiting local casinos and started playing on my Iphone instead. I really like the Zodiac Casino app as it allows me to save money on transportation and drinks.
“Meditation is a way for nourishing and blossoming the divinity within you” – Amit Ray
Before 2016, my only experience with mediation happened during an intense session of hot yoga. The teacher just gave directions but I was too busy wondering what I would buy for dinner that I missed the supposedly deep emotional awakening that was promised by meditation. Well I’m proud to say that I’ve fallen in love with meditation, will even go as far as saying we’re soulmates! It only takes 10 minutes a day and it brings me so much joy and inner peace. Without a doubt it’s the best gift you can give to yourself. Start today and you won’t regret it.
“Respect your body. Eat well. Dance forever.” ― Eliza Gaynor Minden
Without realising it, I’ve been neglecting my body and overall health for years. I’ve suffered from an injury that does not heal and frankly, I had given up any hope of a cure. Boy was I wrong, with the help of a fantastic team of chiropractor, personal trainers, and dietitian I feel the best I’ve been in over ten years. My advice would be to not give up, keep searching for the people that can help you. In any circumstances, your health goes on first. The rest can wait.
