Here's something I’m pretty passionate about: how we measure our progress while on our fitness journey. Stop comparing yourself to others, stop obsessing over your weight, and stop expecting too much too soon. Otherwise, you’ll never be satisfied. There are so many ways to measure and see your progress, so don't get hung up on the wrong things. If you're on a fitness journey to be healthier, this post is for you. You may be making more progress than you think.
As far as I'm concerned, when it comes to life-changing habits, gratitude is the best practice I've ever started. I read a book a few years ago that sparked my interest in the practice of gratitude, and haven't been the same since. It's so vital to my overall well-being that when I feel out of balance in life, it's usually because I've let this habit slip. I've written about it before from a more scientific perspective (Practicing Gratitude) explaining just how gratitude can help re-wire your brain, but this post is purely anecdotal. Here, I just want to write about what practicing gratitude has done for me in hopes that you will give it a try.
