Motivational Quotes - Health and Wellness: 05/06/11

"Don't sweat the small stuff."

This concept is one that really should be followed in all aspects of life. Too much time, energy and emotion can be spent being concerned with things that, really, in the big picture of life and what's important, are very insignificant. Take a moment to think about the last week - Were there any moments that left you feeling stressed, frustrated, angry, sad, or mad? Now, think about the cause of that feeling. What happened? Chances are you may have a difficult time even remembering or if you do, it is now seemingly silly that you even got so wrapped up in whatever it was that took place. The same holds true for health and wellness. Don't get overly obsessed with the relatively minor details (see Tip #5 of my Top Five Nutrition Tips) and you will find that living a healthier life really is enjoyable. Miss a day in the gym? SO WHAT! There are many more days in the gym ahead of you. Eat a large plate of nachos smothered in cheese and all other sorts of unhealthy goodness? WHO CARES!? There will be many more meals you eat that are far more healthy. Furthermore, getting frustrated or upset with yourself about doing so will only cause you to experience unnecessary negative feelings that will do nothing to improve the situation any how. Move on and continue with your life!
