The Blueprint: Things Are Changing Around You!

July 13, 2011 |  by  |  The Basics

So… I see you! You have started on your path to wellness and you are feeling really good! You are tossing out all the processed and artificial foods from your pantry. You are drinking more water and you now know the difference between quinoa and millet.  You easily can identify kale from swiss chard and your yoga teacher now knows you by name.  You should be feeling great and looking good.

You are beginning to see that taking the time to take care of yourself pays off in a lot of ways. It helps reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases like diabetes, blood pressure and high cholesterol. And, it increases your chance of living an active vibrant and fulfilling life for many years to come.  It improves your mood and your attitude and helps you sleep better at night. But, wait there’s more!

Please believe that others are watching the changes you are making…whether they say it or not. They are noticing that you are setting higher standards for yourself and are no longer just accepting the status quo. In turn, you will find that people will begin to treat you differently because they realize that you won’t settle for less and you won’t accept “good enough”. This phenomenon will likely spill over into your workplace, personal and family relationships in a very positive way.  Your new lifestyle choices are indeed creating a blueprint for how you see yourself and how others see you. The changes you are making really do matter!  Keep it moving!
