Hey guys, how has your week been? Mine has been interesting (like always) I was also quite sick during the week and my blog photos didn’t turn out that well so I thought I would just leave writing a blog last week. But don’t worry you can’t get rid of me that easily 😉 . During the last few weeks I have been pretty busy seeing friends, went to my first ever book club and helped out with a fashion show in Garden City, which was fun! Although I was also so sick I did kind of want to just curl up in a ball and sleep at the same time.

Today I thought I would talk about why I think it is way more important to prioritize your happiness then your weight when it comes to improving your health.

I am very passionate about this topic and believe that if you are able to be truly happy everything else will fall into place, including your eating and exercise. After all laughter is the best medicine. 🙂

You would not believe the amount of time clients, friends and even strangers have told me they want to lose weight (way too many times!). While it is very important to maintain a healthy weight actually focusing on losing weight might not be the best place to start. In my opinion the best place is to start feeling more happy 🙂 .

Focusing on being happy means that you will want to look after your health. The choices you make will reflect your happy mind frame so you will not feel the need to overeat on unhealthy food choices. You will also want to get out of bed an hour earlier to exercise because you know that you will feel great once you have finished. This in turn will have a positive effect on your weight.

I seriously think that being happy within yourself will have a ripple on effect in all areas of your life and that will look completely different for everyone.

I thought I would share some of my ideas on ways to improve your happiness

  • Trying lots of different styles of exercise until you find one you love! Keep doing that until you find you would like to give something else a try and then do that!
  • Stop listening to negative self-talk, it is literally a mind and mood killer. Remember none of it is true and you are stronger then anyone could know.
  • Focus on the positives in your life, they are there you just need to see them.
  • Eat healthy – pretty much everyone knows what this involves: eating more fruit and vegetables and less of the highly processed crap, this will automatically make you start feeling happier because you are consuming food that will give you increased energy and vitality.
  • Have a bloody laugh! Find funny and kind people to hang out with, they would love your company.
  •  If you are working in an environment and or with people who you don’t like that much see if there is a way of making it better by changing your approach or maybe quitting you are a very important person. It is also important to remember those people who do like you and see the best in you; they will always be there for you.
  • Smile 🙂 A challenge that I have started is to smile 5 times per day for 1 minute. It can be fake, it doesn’t matter your brain wont know the difference, although you might look strange.  😉 It’s a great mood booster. I got this idea from Tony Robbins.
  • Hug a friend, hugging is a great mood enhancer and it’s always good to spread the love, right 😉

I hope this helps guys, if you are feeling down remember it will pass. Try something new and set a goal, it doesn’t have to be fancy but it is important to decide on one.

If looking at my fashion choices makes you happy then hopefully you like this look, it doesn’t involve any black!

Take care and dare to be seen.

Anna 🙂
