Every single choice ADDS UP
This one’s for my "all or nothing" folks. This is a coloring page I was so excited to have finished while on vacation in Arizona. I LOVED it’s message.
To me it encourages us to not underestimate the impact of a single choice!
And it echoes the impact each person, YOU, can make in the world.
Every single choice made my every single person ADDS UP.
This applies to whether or not we are being kind, empathetic, courageous, and loving as a society AND whether or not we are choosing to eat, move, and sleep with intentionality for our well being.
Let’s look at how we start the day.
If every single morning you have a routine of snoozing your alarm until just before you need to dart out the door and then rolling through a drive through to get some coffee and a pastry or breakfast sandwich, your health will be negatively impacted by that daily routine.
This would then spill into how you feel about your day, what choices you make for food the rest of the day, and in turn, biologically, it will affect the energy you have the rest of the day.
If, though, you set a routine of going to bed at a reasonable time, getting up 7-8 hours later the first time your alarm goes off, and then spending intentional time reading or praying while you consume a nutritious breakfast, not only will your physical health be impacted, but your emotional and spiritual health will be improved as well.
This would also spill into how you feel about your day, what choices you make for food the rest of the day, and in turn, biologically, lead to a higher energy day.
Which choice started these outcomes?
The choice of what time to go to sleep.
Followed by the choice of when to wake up.
This led to how much time you had to be intentional with breakfast and grounding yourself (or not) for the day.
A great, healthy lifestyle is a series of small, often underestimated choices that come together.
So often we feel that if we are not ALL in on healthy choices then it’s not worth bothering with it until we can make every perfect choice in our day.
The reality is, each choice matters. Don’t underestimate what small changes over time can do!
