Summer is upon us in upstate New York ... and your home town! Time to think about wardrobe changes. You will wear shorter sleeves, shorter pants and possibly a bathing suit ... YIKES! People have extreme reactions when this reality sets in. Which one to do you relate to?
The Panicking Person. This person panics and go overboard. They skip meals, run in place and try the latest fad crash diet.
The Downer. They become discouraged and start thinking remorseful thoughts. Those people usually comfort themselves with foods.
The Should Person. They don’t change their behavior. No, they just tell themselves - and everyone around them - what they should be doing.
Which person are you? It’s okay to admit you relate to them. I hope you can laugh at these reactions even if you identify with them. Resist your nature to react in unhealthy ways. Choose health and fitness as your reaction mode.
The Healthy Person. They value balance in life. Mind, Body and Spirit. It is all important to them. Sometimes they get off track but that’s okay. Summer’s arrival sparks a desire to focus on fitness and energy. Enjoying the season to the fullest. You can be this person. Decide today that health is your birthright. Say it to yourself multiple times a day with a smile on your face and love in your heart.
