My first floating blog post is going to be Wellness Wednesday. I need accountability and I figured that you guys could help me. I want to take time once a month to check in and see how I’m doing. I want to share my water intake, physical exercise, and mental health.
I’m trying to drink 30-40 ounces of water every day. So far today, I’m about halfway done. I also want to drink 10 of those ounces first thing in the morning. I don’t like to drink my morning coffee on an empty stomach, but 5 am is way too early to eat breakfast. I also read online (I know, right) that water first thing in the morning wakes up the organs. It sounds good, so I’m going to go with it.
A while back (actually, about this time last year) I posted about how I stay fit for photography. And that day was probably the last time I did anything. But this evening, I practiced yoga again. And once my muscles stop aching from the lack of activity, I’m going to be glad that I did. I also want to commit to riding my bike this summer.
I’ve been struggling with this for several years. Part of it was the day job, and part of it is that winter lasts eight months where we live. Well, I have a new day job so my anxiety is pretty much gone. And I’ve been taking extra Vitamin D in the winter. Which helps. But it’s not the same as the sun.
I’ve also decided to take Facebook off of my phone. I was sick of the mindless scroll whenever I had a few minutes and all the junk that was there. Now, whenever I want to kill time, I scroll through Instagram and see all the beautiful photos.
This is what I have planned for my Wellness Wednesday posts. What are your wellness goals? We can encourage each other.
