Beyond the Active Living Challenge
I’ve participated in a lot of health and fitness challenges. Some I completed to the end. Others? Not quite. There was something about the Lorna Jane and Fit Approach #ActiveLivingChallenge that has stuck with me. Maybe it’s the timing for me personally or being more open to new possibilities and change. Maybe it was having the wonderful opportunity to meet Lorna Jane and hearing her speak at Blogfest. Regardless of the reason I’m living ACTIVE LIVING beyond the challenge.
have had a tendency to go to extremes with things. Extremes that were not sustainable. Extremes with trying to incorporate everything I read about how to be a better me. I mean, they’re experts so they must know, right. Wrong!
I needed to make a change. A change from extremes to a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. I’ve talked a lot about my personal journey with things like A Happiness Found Within and Letting Go of Control. Knowing and trusting that I know how to be the best version of me is
the a destination of that journey. It has changed the way I think and how I make decisions. It has changed my perspective.
I’m adopting Lorna Jane’s mantra. Do you think she will mind?
Those 3 words embody a sustainable lifestyle. A simple perspective that has helped me get rid of all the extraneous “stuff” that I don’t need. I’ve actually lived an active lifestyle for many years but MOVE, NOURISH, BELIEVE breaks it down to simple concepts that remind me living my best, most beautiful life doesn’t have to be complicated. With busy lives it’s not always easy, but the concept is actually quite simple.
Every morning I start the day with setting 3 simple daily intentions to move, nourish and believe. The intentions help start the day on a positive upbeat note no matter what awaits in the hours to come. The intentions keep me on track and remind me to keep it simple and trust what I know. Most mornings it’s not even a conscious decision to set the intentions. I wake up with the mindset of, “how am I going to make the most of this day?”
