Influences & Motivations

Valerie Bertinelli, Charles Barkley, Janet Jackson, Oprah, The Kardashians... Who or what influences you to live a healthy lifestyle? With celebs becoming spokespersons for the latest diet, and nutritional systems... What are we to believe? They have the latest trainers, nutritionist, and personal chefs... But Where does that leave the average person? Feeling like you're in a never winning battle! What about your Doctor, family, spouse, friends, co-workers; do they influence you? Those are the people who matter, right? Listen to your loved ones, listen to your doctor, they usually have your best interest at heart. Your health & quality of life should influence you, those who have similar positive goals and are acheiving those goals should influence you. The bigger question, what motivates you to live a healthy lifestyle? Everyone pulls motivation from all places. I personally, am motivated by physical results, music, and "negative nancys" telling me I can't & to shut up about healthy living.

In order to be healthy; self, soul, and space, you must ask yourself these questions, and answer them honestly...
1. What influences you to live a healthy lifestyle? Positive & negative?
2. What motivates you to live a healthy lifestyle?

Now, take the positive influences and surround yourself with them, and tap into that motivation and get moving! Healthy living begins with you!

P.s. it is contagious, once you start those "negative nancys" will catch on!

New Year's Resolutions or Goals?

Every year, as a new year approaches people make their list of resolutions. But how many of us loose focus come February? Don't be shy, be honest... Raise your hand (mine is raised)! So last year, instead of make lofty resolutions, I made a list of short term & long term goals that will be completed in the future. Then I outlined the steps to get me to acheiving my goals.
Some of my personal short term goals:
run a half marathon
recycle more
continue to fill my house with healthy organic foods
spend more quality time with my loved ones
Some of my long term goals include:
become a certified personal trainer & yoga instructor
help my extended family get on a healthy life path
get out of debt
save more money
continue to spread the info from Self Soul Space to anyone who is willing to listen (in the community, online, etc)

What are your goals?
