Balance & be glad

Just step outside and feel the warmth of the sun on your face! Stir that Vitamin D, feel the fresh air, take a deep breath and just be glad! It is so important to relax and enjoy your life daily. Set a new goal: spend 5 minutes everyday focusing on the ‘simple you.’ Put your feet up, flip through a magazine or just close your eyes…it’s just 5 minutes of commitment to yourself.

A sense of calm and balance is important to vitality, resilience and a good sense of humor.

Close your eyes, take a deep breath, drop your shoulders then your jaw, feel the strain just flow out of you – Try it RIGHT NOW!   It really feels good, to feel good, doesn’t it?

A healthy life has balance, sometimes we forget to maintain our balance, & we feel stress, anxiety, frustration and general grumpiness. When we remember to give ourselves a break from all the chaos of daily life, we generally have a calmer sense of well-being and are in turn better balanced. This is what I call a great wellness practice that is good for your overall health!

What does it mean to be In Forward Motion?

“Health is a large word.  It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit
as well… and not today’s pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and
outlook of a man.”  ~James H. West

So I drank more than usual and ate too much over the holiday, oh yeah, just another average American; but today begins the resumed mindset of a person who needs to ‘get back on track!’ In Forward Motion is simply a phrase to me that means don’t look back and dwell on things you cannot change; rather, move forward in being the best you that you can be in the moment and the future! Learn from the past- yesterday, last week or even years ago- remember that you choose with ‘no regrets’ yet are in a constant state of trail and error. Moving forward is good for the heart and soul; moving forward is the best choice as long as you learn from mistakes!

Welcome to my blog! In Forward Motion is about all things that produce lessons well learned, and a life in forward motion.
