It's important to keep my body healthy and maintained, especially because the mind and body are so interconnected. I started working out almost four years ago when I sobered up. It changed my life. The feeling of tuning your body is really something unlike any other. These are our bodies we're talking about. The things that are going to get us as far as we can go.
The feedback I get the most is that eating healthy is too expensive and finding the time for healthy activities is too difficult. I think even with the busiest schedules you can find time and budget for your body. The fact is you have to make it a priority.
Each morning before work I go for a hike. The sun is a body and soul healing star. Getting moving first thing actually keeps me feeling more energized throughout the day.
When it comes to eating healthy, my fridge always contains: some kind of meat, leafy greens, various vegetables, various fruits/berries, yogurt, milk and lots and lots of water. If that sounds like boring food - you should pick up a cook book. My main advice for people who don't know how to start eating better is stop eating things that come out of boxes.
Make some time for yourself and your body - your physical and mental state will thank you.
