Brought to you by the letter "H" for...
Health in all areas of life.
* Health in the traditional sense. More exercise. I'm on Day 8 of my Wii 30 Day Fitness Challenge, and I have more and more energy every time that alarm goes off at 6 am. Yay! Eat healthier. More fruits and veggies. I am a notorious veggie-hater. I'm getting better. Baby steps, baby steps. Cut out soda and alcohol. I have a Coke every couple of days. I haven't had a drop of wine (or any other alcoholic beverage) for 10 days now. Instead, I drink about 10 glasses of water a day. Doin' good.
* Family health. We are spending a lot more quality time together. Dinners at the dining room table. Mondays are family movie night, Thursdays... family game night. Once it warms up, we'll be spending a lot more time playing outside. Hazel is now a Daisy Girl Scout, and I am a co-leader for her troop. It's an excellent way to spend quality time together.
* Creative health. I was taking on so many jobs and projects that it was starting to burn me out. I've taken a creative break to get the juices flowing again, reprioritized some of my commitments, and hope to be back to inspiring you all very soon. I will continue to reevaluate my commitments in the industry until I find a happy medium.
* Mental health. Not in the loo-loo crazy sense. More in the remembering not to be so hard on myself, and introducing more time for relaxation in my life sense. In this day and age, I think we could all benefit from taking some time to breathe and appreciate all we have in life. It doesn't always have to be so high-stress and go, go, go all the time.
I think the best idea behind new year's resolutions is to set small, attainable goals and build on them. If I went in with the goal to work out 3 hours a day, that would last maybe 3 days. Instead, I started out with the 30 minute Wii fitness challenge. Then, I'll slowly add too it... a couple of days of yoga here, some Wii Fit exercises there. It makes everything seem that much more possible. On that note, I have some organizing to do before I can get back to creating. So, I'll leave you with some snap-shots from the holidays...
Happy New Year, and here's to you achieving all your goals for 2010!
