Healthy Living: Take the Road Already Traveled

Action expresses priorities. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Lately, I’ve been thinking about this quote a lot. It seems simple enough, right? You just do what you’ve set as a priority.

Oh, if it were only that easy.

This quote is a great reminder, but also overly simplistic. It’s like saying “Just pay your bills,” or “Just go to work,” or “Just stop eating crap.”

Unfortunately, the hard things in life aren’t always as simple as a quote.

What things might those be? Things like…
-spiritual life
-health and fitness (of course)

Each one takes:
-goal setting
-taking it one step at a time
-being realistic

Each problem individually has a huge effect on us. Healthy relationships help us through hard times, relieving stress, improving health and spiritual life, etc. But where do you start?

If your body and mind isn’t the best it can be, then it will affect everything you try to do. Just like taking a shower cleanses your body, eating healthy cleanses not only your body, but your mind as well. If your body is filled with energy that you’ve gotten from healthy food and exercise, that energy can be channeled into tackling your daily goals.

Of course, the most difficult part of healthy living is putting your goals together and actually following through with them. If you tend to start with good intentions but lose focus and direction, a pre-packaged plan is the solution. The Conscious Cleanse 14-day Clean Eating and Yoga Challenge on GaiamTV is just that.

Start here. Take the clean eating quiz!




  1. I SO hear you on the whole “good intentions” thing. I’m too stubborn to do a structured program myself (control issues much?) but I think for a lot of people, getting support and having plan all laid out really simplifies things. The Gaiam thingy sounds like it could be a good choice for many who are not as crotchety as I am. 🙂
