“The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith.” -Franklin D. Roosevelt
So far, you have created a vision and are now preparing to take an action… Part of your preparation is to imagine what reaching your goals will look and feel like.
THRIVE-ing is an overall sense of well-being in the physical, mental, and emotional parts of life. What does a vision of Thrive-ing look like to you? Will you know it when you are there?
Take some time today to solidify your image of THRIVE-ing, and focus on the elements of MOVE-ing, EAT-ing, THINK-ing, and FEEL-ing. The following is a list of goals for taking action in months 1 and 2 from Dr. Vonda Wright’s Guide to THRIVE:
- MOVE: THRIVE-ers will engage their bodies and engage their brains by learning to make the first MOVE with 25 Total Body THRIVE (TBT) exercises and developing a daily habit of MOVE-ing.
- EAT: THRIVE-ers will know themselves by keeping a food journal, learning the 500 rule, making simple food substitutions to simplify eating, and choosing more healthy foods.
- THINK: THRIVE-ers will stimulate their brains to learn new information by MOVE-ing, and they will free up brain space with stress-reduction methods for simplifying their lives.
- FEEL: THRIVE-ers will identify what makes them happy, create a joy and thankfulness list, and fortify important relationships.
Setting small, manageable goals puts us in a position to succeed. Pile a few successes in front of one another, and not only have we paved the way to our goals, but succeeding becomes a habit, our mode of operation. Now let’s look forward and make a MOVE.
