Alright! Week 7 asks me to list things that make me feel healthy. The 52 List Project listed Mind, Body & Soul. So I will do that as well. And then I want YOU to list what makes you feel healthy. Feel free to add to my list, and let me know how I can help you along the way!
A protein shake in the morning. When I’ve bought some protein. And I don’t mind a sugary taste. (+Vitamins!)
Being productive early in my day.
Care packages. Nothing special, really. Just notes of sentiment and tiny gifts that make me realize people are randomly thinking of me.
Travel. Not traveling itself, but the adventure in the destination.
Journaling. All types of journaling.
The gym. I never feel good when I leave or before I get there (or while I’m there), but my mind knows I’m being healthy. I can acknowledge a more active lifestyle, to say the least.
My new essential oils. Seriously, they’re little miracle workers.
A phenomenal music playlist.
Live music. It does nothing for my earbuds, but I feel alive.
Letting my eyes rest when I’ve been on screens for the majority of my day.
Open conversations with friends and family.
Adventures with my boyfriend.
Matcha green tea lattes with skim milk.
Helping people when they need it.
Singing and dancing. Singing or dancing. Being a dork.
Making someone’s day brighter with a random note/thank you note/gift.
I really enjoy taking care of people. Momma Bear style.
Compliments. And smiles from strangers.
A really great outfit.
Yoga. To Justin Timberlake or another amazing vocalist, of course.
Having an open mind.
Creating a checking off my to-do lists.
Planning ahead. Always brings me more joy.
Veggie chips + vitamins.
Visits to the beach… when my toes can squish in the sand and connect with the salt water.
Deep breathing techniques + When I realize I’m being patient. Often they go hand in hand.
When I let the high expectations and pressures from my friends and the world around me fall to the wayside.
Cuddles with my puppy.
When my boyfriend talks to me. His voice calms me down.
Scalp massages/Getting my hair done. I LOVE IT WHEN PEOPLE PLAY WITH MY HAIR!
The realization that I have friends who reside not only around the US, but around the WORLD. And there are gems in there that are genuine and care about me to such a great extent.
Being asked to hang out with people. Coffee dates, shopping trips, concerts… they’re thinking about me and they want to have fun with me. And that’s a very strong compliment and makes me feel bubbly.
Eating fruits + veggies. (+ spinach smoothies!)
Baking vegan/gluten-free/healthy alternative desserts.
Consuming copious amounts of sorbet. Just way too much.
Not getting exhausted or short of breath during cardio.
A long, hot shower.
Days without makeup.
Lemon water first thing in the morning.
Sore leg muscles.
A round (or 5) with a punching bag.
ETC. (ADD TO THIS, GUYS!)
