A healthy lifestyle can contain many different things. Hanging out with friends every day, making time for yourself (by painting, singing, writing or just having some quality thinking time with yourself), eating right, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep all play into how you feel about yourself at the end of a rough and mentally or physically challenging week! So do your body a solid, stay away from Zebra Cakes, the frozen section at Sodexo, and drink water instead of that sugary Mountain Dew. If you need an extra energy boost try putting an energy powder packet in your water or having a cup of coffee here and there! As for exercise, not everyone loves it, but everybody needs it! Go for a walk, play a game of catch outside, or swim a few laps in the pool; whatever you can be excited about long enough to get your daily dose of endorphins. Your body will thank you later without the need for that 2 p.m. nap tomorrow :)
Put all of these things together everyday and eventually it will become a healthy habit! GO YOU!
Until next week!
Peak of the Week:
I made lasagna for 40 people! (Great-grandmother's recipe from Italy itself!) I feel like a big kid when I cook :)
Challenge of the Week:
Pushing through a 2-day fever/cold (still have the cold), 2 tests, 3 novels, and a HUGE presentation due next Tuesday. I think I can! I think I can!
