Hi everyone. I thought I would start this Monday off with a Bits & Bites themed 'It's a Good Day When'. If you are unfamiliar with Bits & Bites on Snapshots of Wellness, head over to the B&B tab (your top right). Bits & Bites is a compilation of a lot of random topics via health/wellness/lifestyle.
Let's kick this off by chatting about this fab app - Moments.
Moments tracks how long you are on your phone each day. I learned about this app after reading an article by Jennie Allen that confirmed so many of my own thoughts. I think this app is a 'wake up call'. I absolutely love it.
My relationship with social media (outside of this blog and anything blog related) & my phone has changed dramatically. I am so not into either. And the further away from Facebook I get, the more I realize how downright strange it is that I used to spend so much time on there every single day. I really encourage you to examine the 'why' you are posting on social media. As you evolve, your reasons will most definitely change. At the end of each day, I look at how many hours I was on my phone and think about how I could have been using my time to be in nature, connect with loved ones in person, move my body or do anything that benefits my health and relationships..
So, it's a 'Good Day When', you don't use your phone as much any more. And you replace FB with real life.
It's a 'Good Day When' you are no longer interested in 'looking back'. What does that mean? When - organically - you wake up one day and begin to realize that you are no longer examining the past or what coulda/woulda/shoulda been. It's a 'Good Day When' even if you 'could' go back in time, you really don't have any desire to. Because what is ahead of you is so much more fulfilling.
It's a Good Day When' you don't just read books that change how you approach your health such as Eat Dirt & Ella Woodward Every Day but, you role them both out and realize your wellness game is shifting yet again. Incredible! I encourage you to purchase both!
It's a 'Good Day When' you become a 'Best Lifer'! I'll let the Vega Team tell you all about your best life and then examine if you ARE living your best life every single day. I hope we all are. I find #BestLIfeProject SO ENCOURAGING & INSPIRING!
'It's a Good Day When' you are doing more than you are 'thinking about doing' - when you are engaging in your 'present' - when you are investing in your health & sustainability- when you are educating yourself on environmental awareness and realizing every decision you make affects our planet for the better or worse.
And folks, it's a very 'Good Day When', you are pouring love into yourself and others. I know people who hold onto love so tightly and don't express it. And I encourage you step out of your comfort zone (b/c you'll realize that holding onto love is anything but comforting) and sprinkle love everywhere you go!
'Be Love' as Bob Goff would say.
Enjoy your week!
