More Short and Simple Wellness Tips For You

Hello Friends, it’s been awhile…. I’ve been on a bit of an unplanned break for the last few weeks. Though I haven’t been busy blogging, I have been busy doing other things.

Since my last post, I’ve gotten my second Covid vaccine, finished my Weight Loss Specialist Certification, and planted lettuce and spinach, among other things. We’ve also made several trips to our local garden centers. I just can’t seem to stay out of them this time of year!

Since I still haven’t gotten back into the “blogging groove” yet, I thought I’d share a few more wellness tips and quotes that I’ve been sharing on my Facebook page.I hope you find something that speaks to you.

So often, we think of exercise as work and something we just have to “get through.” When we change how we think about it, it can help us start to enjoy the process and appreciate what our bodies can do.

When we’re working to improve our health, we can get discouraged if we’re not making progress as quickly as we’d like. We have to learn to be patient with ourselves and focus on the process in order to make the changes that will last us a lifetime.

I just love this! When we adopt healthy behaviors, we’re investing in the best “bank account” of all – our wellness.

Comparison is a progress-killer! One thing that will demotivate us quicker than anything else is comparing ourselves to others. The only comparison we should be making is the comparison between where we started and where we are now.

It’s only been in recent years that scientists have discovered just how important our gut health is. Taking care of our microbiome can make a huge difference in our overall health.

The general recommendation these days is that we can eat an egg a day, which is great news for those of us who love eggs. Of course, you should always follow your doctor’s recommendations. Some cardiologists may recommend fewer.

Whenever you feel guilty for making your own health a priority, just remember the gift you’re giving your family.

This is so true! We’re going to fail at many things in life – that’s just a part of living and learning. The important thing is that we get back up and try again.

Did any of these resonate with you? What has been the best tip you’ve ever gotten regarding health and wellness? Please share!

Blessings,

~Terri

  1. Sounds like a busy time for you, Terri! Well done on finishing the course, planting your veggies & getting the second vaccination; I hope the latter gives you the best protection possible.

    I’m a sucker for inspiration quotes & tips, and these ones you’ve shared are fab! xx

  2. Wonderful to learn you have been busy doing things that provide you joy and wellness! Hope you are able to continue spending more time outdoors enjoying nature. Hugs, sweet friend! 🌸🌿☀️

    1. Thank you so much Terry! How have you been? I hope you’re doing well. This time of year the outdoors starts calling to me, and I can’t seem to get enough of being out in nature. 😊 I’m starting the process of trying to catch up with everyone, so I’ll stop by your blog for a visit soon. Stay safe and well sweet friend. Sending hugs your way!

  3. Lovely to have you back in this space Terri! I was actually concerned that you weren’t here but didn’t want to intrude!
    Glad you’ve been busy & delighting in your success!
    Blessings,
    Jennifer

    1. Thank you so much Jennifer! How are you doing sweet friend? I’ve missed you! I’ll be popping by your blog to catch up and see what I’ve missed. I hope you’re staying safe and well. Sending hugs your way!

  4. Hey Terri! I was telling Sarah yesterday morning that I needed to get up with you because I had not been receiving your blog posts. So glad to see you back and these motivational tips are great! Thanks for sharing and feels good to see you back here.

    1. Thanks so much Tim! I’m glad you found the tips useful. Sometimes just a quick little reminder helps me remember I need to be making my health a priority. We’re looking forward to seeing you guys in July (if Sarah has finished up work by then). Hopefully you already know your lovely wife and I have been talking about you guys coming up to the Gladys campground. 😊 We’re looking forward to catching up face-to-face. Love to you both!

    1. Thanks so much VJ! I’m glad you found the tips helpful. How are you doing? How about your dear Hubby? I hope he’s on the mend and that you’re feeling as well as possible. Sending hugs your way sweet friend!

      1. He’s coming along, although the doctor told him it could be up to two years to heal, so there’s that. Otherwise, we are coping and staying safe. Thanks Terri.

  5. Congrats on your certification! I love the tips here, including the reminder to take care of our gut health. That never seems to get much attention! xo

    1. Thank you so much Christy! I agree that our gut health doesn’t get much attention. In fact, I’m working on a post about gut health now.😊 I hope you’re doing well and enjoying your Spring. Sending hugs your way!

Please tell me what you think!
