Sometimes you will need a little boost, a little pick me up on this journey of becoming a healthier you. Below are 5 quotes that will give you the boost you need.
Quote #1 “The ground work for all happiness is good health.” – Leigh Hunt
When you have good health you are a happier person. When you get sick, your happiness gets buried under circumstances you are dealing with at the time. The mind and body are connected and when either one is not in tune, there will be an imbalance. Strive for happiness!
Quote #2 “True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are ever united.” – Humboldt
Always exercise your mind, by reading and learning something new everyday. Move your body everyday and watch your mental and physical go where they have never gone before. The enjoyment of keeping your mind and body active keeps you young and alert. Never stop learning and moving!
Quote #3 “The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before.” -Steve Young
Compete against no one on your journey to becoming a healthier you. If you slip you know you can do better the next day, but don’t ever compare your journey to another person’s journey. You will end up failing every time.
Quote #4 “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle
If you repeatedly put junk (unhealthy foods) in your body, then it will become a habit and the result will be poor health, obesity and a host of other things. But if you put healthy, life-giving foods in your body then you will reap amazing benefits and you will feel it in your mind, body, spirit and soul. Make it a practice to put the good stuff in your body (most of the time), then it will become a habit.
Quote #5 “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Elliot
As long as there is breath in your body, you have a chance to become the person you want and to meet the goals that you have set. Keep pushing and never give up!
