You may have noticed, if you follow me on Instagram, that I've been posting more photos of foods that I cook/create at home. I recognize this may be the equivalent of seeing your friends post photos of their amazing life and how great they're doing and how their child is the best child ever and yada yada....but what I've found is that by posting these healthy creations, I feel like I'm being held accountable for my diet. I feel like I am being held accountable for maintaining a healthier lifestyle, as well. It's super motivating! I certainly get excited when people comment or like my photos, but the pleasure for me comes out of putting it out there, what I created and took the time to make.
For this Wellness Wednesday, maybe try to take these kinds of moments more. Step away from the iPhone, iPad, MacBook, SmartTV, and be present. Read one of those books that's been sitting by your bed. Organize a junk drawer. Cook a healthy meal and totally boast that sh*t on social media. Go for a walk, even if it's only around the block.
In doing any of the above, I've found that I feel a huge sense of accomplishment and productivity - something a coworker and I were discussing earlier today. No matter what size the accomplishment is, I acknowledge it and it keeps me feeling more positive, motivated to continue to wisely utilize every precious minute of each precious day to it's fullest. Those little moments of productivity add up and boost those happy fuzzy feelings. Wouldn't you rather feel fulfilled and present, versus unproductive, lazy and lethargic? Work within your limits, start small, and see how you feel.
