Why are you ready? Are you committed to starting your New Life today? What makes today different? It's time isn't it? It's time to push restart and get moving. It's 2021 and there's no better time.
It's time to learn and grow. Time to heal. We have some guidance for you here at Good Life Designs. You can design your life to make it better than its ever been despite the state of the world.
Change your mind and change your life!
There are so many ways to start. First, you must start thinking differently. That means you will have to learn new things, practice a new way of living and create a whole new YOU. YES. It's true.
There are so many ways, but first, commit. Set your mind on this and just take it one day at a time. Slow and steady wins the race. And here we go.
A few things to think about first.
Fitness - What level are you at? Where do you feel comfortable and confident that you can go?
Time - How much time can you set aside each day to start your new life journey? 25 minutes? 45 minutes? One hour each day. Good!
Commitment - This is the hardest. Just say it today. Speak it. Believe it. Tell people. Tell yourself. One step at a time. It's time to take your life back. It really is your choice. People who have lived through horrible circumstances have gone forward to create a new life.
IT'S TIME TO REINVENT YOURSELF. TODAY IS DAY ONE.
Here's what we believe......
Start with some basic yoga. Meditate. Get in touch with your body. Slow down everything a little at a time. Breath more, literally. Breath slower. Practice self care. Listen to self help recordings every day. Learn new things and let your brain grow at any age. Set aside time for yourself. In fact, schedule it daily. Let go of guilt by focusing on the goal. The goal is you. The goal is health. Health is wealth. Healthier minds and bodies live better and longer. Yes, you CAN do this. You can. Say it..."I can do this". Keep saying it every day for the rest of your life.
I've heard this profound saying from Dr. Joe Dispenza....he says "The body is always talking to the mind and the mind is always talking to the body". With that, listen and talk and listen some more. Let the mind and body do their thing and let your life follow it. Take control back of your life, your emotions, your reactions, your goals, your spare time. Stop your mind from wandering to dark places and stay on track. Now is the time.
How should you start to exercise?
Walking in nature. Are you disabled? That's ok, wheel yourself through nature. Have someone else put you in a setting where you can witness and/or feel nature and take it in. Look at it. Witness it. Feel it. Love it. Embrace it. It's a natural antidepressant.
Even if it's only a few leg lifts or toe raises, you can start to move your body a little bit each day, and then a little more the next day.
What's the key? Accountability. It's always lacking accountability that allows most of us to fail.
Yoga is one of the only approaches to health that assists in keeping your body healthy, strong, and flexible while simultaneously providing mental clarity and emotional well-being. Available to any level of experience, you can combine ancient tradition with innovation. Make this YOUR practice and do what works for your body.
You'll see and feel your body healing itself when you care for it and allow for more "rest and digest". You’ll notice immediate benefits to your health when you use preventative health care and natural exercise for fitness of the body and mind.
From here.....we start. Start today on a new journey for your life. Let today be day one. It's never too late to push restart. Here goes.....let DAY ONE begin!
