Wanda’s Favorite Wellness Tip:
Keep active! Move every day, no matter how busy, tired, or stressed you are. Change how you think about your body. If exercise is a dirty word or evokes a negative emotion for you, invent a word or description that is positive for you. View your daily movement as a gift you give yourself. For example: “I took a happy walk today & was delighted by that unexpected puppy playing in his yard.” Or “I was so good to myself today – I treated myself to a swim to cool down.” Or “I keep up with the latest trends & do ‘forest bathing’ in the woods.” The brain will automatically lean into the positive and shun the negative. Self-talk is the most important component of staying active.
