Valuable Lessons I've Learnt This Semester.

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

1. Pace Yourself.
Burn out isn't fun. It exhausts you and everything will not turn out the way you want when you are in this frame of mind. Everything you want to do is not going to happen in 1 day.

2. Talk. Write.
Any way to express yourself, whether it's talking, writing or something else is good. Keeping things bottled up will only lead to explosions.

3. People Want to Help.
Most people are compassionate by nature and want to help someone who is struggling if they can. But they are not mind-readers. Ask for help. Tell people what you want or need.

4. Exercise Is A Drug.
Exercise is key to keep your spirits up and feeling good. It does not have to be continuous to help. Even 10 minutes gets the blood pumping and endorphins going.

5. Listen To Your Body.
This is a hard one that I am constantly trying to learn. Listen to your body. It knows when its had enough and can't take anymore. Pushing yourself to a certain extent is good because it extends your limits. However push too much and injuries are very likely to happen.

6. Know your Limits.
This goes hand in hand with the previous one.

    Great lessons. I need to remember #'s 5 & 6. Exercise is definitely a drug.

    Excellent lessons, each and every one. You are one smart cookie! I especially liked 'listen to your body' and 'know your limits'. They do go hand in hand, once you know your limits, you can push them if you are listening to your body!

    Excellent lessons. You also have to be kind to yourself. Not every day, every interaction, every action that you take is going to turn out for the best. But if you can be kind to yourself you always have a friend to turn to.

    All good lessons!
And having read about you on your page, you're right - it's not a matter of "losing weight" but learning to live healthily, NOW, while you're young, so that you WON'T develop weight problems later on.
And find your identity in Christ - see yourself as your Heavenly Father and the Lover of your soul sees you. Get into Song of Solomon, which has often been taught as a metaphor of Christ's love for His Bride, the church, of which you are part.
Blessings on this journey to a healthy, holy temple for His presence.Shel
