What does Health mean?
Thursday, July 11, 2013
This prompt intrigued me. What does health mean to me? Eating healthy and doing some sort of fitness a day definitely fall into that rubric. Eating healthy means eating more fruits and veggies, making my own marinades and rubs and relying less on 'easy' prepared foods.
But being healthy means more than eating right and exercising; it means doing what I can to lessen the stress in my life. It means being politically active on issues that are important to me and it means reading newspapers, books and listening to podcasts to expand my mind. It means choosing a Natural deodorant, face wash and body wash and moisturizers. It means caring about what I use on my body as much as what I put into it.
In other news: I did a 20 minute yoga workout today that was quite strenuous since it was focusing a lot on upper body strength. That was fun. I also ate really well today. I made the breakfast I said I would and opted for fruit as a snack.
Goals for tomorrow:
- eat another healthy breakfast
- drink 8 glasses of water.
- do either a 20 minute cardio routine or a 30 minute yoga routine.
