Mama Bird Well Nest is all about encouraging you to live a holistically happy and healthy life. To me, this means making sure that ALL parts of our well-being are being cared for; mind, body, and spirit. I believe that if one of these areas is not being met, it is simply not possible to feel truly happy and healthy.
September always feels like the beginning of the year to me; a time to refocus and set some new goals. This fall, I’m taking some small, doable actions to work toward a healthier mind, body, and spirit. I wanted to share the simple goals I’ve set and the small steps I have been taking to encourage you to set some simple holistic health goals of your own.
I am someone who always likes to be learning. One of the ways that I most enjoy learning and keeping my mind working is by reading. I have committed to reading a little bit each night before going to bed. My husband just bought Rich Dad, Poor Dad to encourage me to get more interested in our finances. Have you read it? By reading this and other self development books I am learning something new and keeping my mind working. A working mind is a happy mind. 🙂
I have started meal planning for the week each Sunday and am focusing on eating whole, fresh foods. Starting next week, I will be participating in the Nourish to Flourish Society’s 14 Day Reset, which is all about eating seasonally and having the tools to feel good in our bodies and figure out the emotional reasons behind our cravings. This will be my third time participating in this cleanse, and I learn something new each time!
If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook, you may have seen that I am participating in a 30 Day Yoga Challenge throughout the month of September! After letting my yoga practice become nonexistent this summer, I am easing back into my practice by committing to getting on my mat for a minimum of 10 minutes a day. To me, yoga is so much more than a physical practice; it’s a way to take time for myself and tune into my spiritual side. I’m a week into the challenge and already feeling so much better!
As you can see, setting holistic health goals does not have to be earth shattering. Small, consistent steps are all it takes to live happier and healthier lives. I made sure that these goals are achievable by making sure to keep to the SMART goal criteria, and making them specific, measurable, actionable, results-oriented, time bound.
Now over to you! What small goals can you set to be a little happier and healthier this fall? Let me know in the comments below! Let’s support one another and keep each other accountable for reaching our goals! 🙂
Be happy. Be healthy.
