10 Thoughts for Healthy Living

During the holiday season there are so many different emotions. At least for me. There are feelings of happiness, sadness, anticipation, kindness, and feeling depressed because people tend to over-eat between Thanksgiving and Christmas!

This is not something I plan on doing, in fact, Clint and I have been diligently working out and eating healthy. I have also been on a quest to make healthier snacks such as cookies and cakes. Mmmm..I recently have been using applesauce and bananas to substitute for butter. But, since we live in a remote village in Alaska (I love saying that!) we don't have access to a lot of healthier foods.

So, in order to stay consciously happy and healthy-and not just about weight, but my overall being- Here is some Thoughts:

"1. Allow yourself the chance to really savor each moment.

2. Optimism isn't just a shift in perspective. It's an act of bravery.

3. Only you can decide the path worth taking.

4. Don't wait for your mood to change; take action despite it.

5. Approach gift shopping as an opportunity to honor the people you really love.

6. Rather than search for a single miracle food, strive for a varied and delicious diet.

7. You can't grow without pushing your limits.

8. Stop worrying about getting sick; focus on your health instead.

9. Don't believe what you hear. Life is good.

10. No one knows what the future will bring. Put your energy into now."
