Choose You!

by Annie Isler

Freedom, excitement, and endless possibilities! This could describe someone’s emotional state walking into a buffet, but it could also describe how someone feels starting their day.  We make thousands of choices every single day. Each choice connects us to how we see ourselves and how we see the world. Our lifestyle, our brain, and our body become the sum of our choices. When you’re in the moment of choosing, the moments towards healthy and happy, choose you.

Let’s start with the most basic choices that impact us the deepest. Sleep, diet, and stress play a key role into becoming the best version of ourselves. Making consistent choices, ones that get us closer to our best, is where we win the day. Getting a full night’s sleep, enjoying the flavors of fruits and vegetables, and learning how to stay balanced emotionally is where your wealth in health is won. Be intentional about what time you go to bed. Be intentional about what is on your fork. Be intentional about the thoughts and feelings you harbor. 

When we break down our choices on a moment-to-moment basis, it is simple. Each day we have a buffet in front of us. Our habits, tastes, and goals fuel what we put on our plate. 

Choose the things that bring you closer to your best. Choose the things that make you happy. Choose the things that empower your journey.

Choose you.
