Figuring out what caused me to drift away from my wellness plan. Was it vacation, injury, sickness or lack of planning.
Planning my workouts for the week.
Just start. It does not have to be a super hard work out, it can be as simple as going for a walk outside.
Implementing good habits daily, and this often starts with a healthy and fulfilling morning routine. Having a morning ritual sets you up for the day.
Reading and researching topics on health and fitness.
Having positive thoughts and remembering this is self-care.
Never give up.
