Feels, not looks

What does healthy feel like?

Kind of a simple question, but likely not one you have asked yourself recently. We often think about what healthy DOES or DOES NOT do (eat well, refrain from smoking, exercise regularly, reduce stress, laugh more), what healthy looks like (reduce stress response, cardiovascularly fit, strong, able to keep up with the kids) …

What healthy looks like is very different on me than it might be on you. Skinny doesn’t mean healthy; healthy doesn’t necessarily mean skinny.

How often do we think about what healthy FEELS like?

My thoughts:

Healthy feels like-

You have energy.

You are optimistic.

You are content.

You are active.

You are confident and happy.

You feel empowered.

You feel mentally focused and clear.

You notice things because you slow down and take note.

You are in tune with your body and eat when you are hungry, enjoying what foods you select.

You feel well-hydrated.

You wake up feeling refreshed each morning because you get enough sleep.

You rarely feel ill, and when you do get sick, you recover quicker.

You are mindful of what you think of others.
