Creating a Healthy, Happy Life!

Creating a healthy, happy life does not happen over night. There is no miracle pill we can take or magic food we can eat that will makeover our lives and bodies. Instead it takes time, effort, steps, plans, desire, knowledge, dedication, support, sometimes even some setbacks and motivation, lots of motivation!

We have all heard of different diet trends and crash diets. A lot of us have probably tried a few. Sometimes you get results but usually they are too strict to stick to. If you do manage to stick to them and get results for most people they are short-lived. There are of course exceptions. A small number of people are able to make extreme changes very quickly, get great results and them maintain it long-term but this is the exception. For most of us small lifestyle changes over time will lead to lifelong results and habits. Most diet trends do NOT address your mental and spiritual health. I don’t know about the rest of you but I want the whole package!

I want to improve my mental, spiritual and physical health! So, I came up with The First Nine Weeks! I am super excited about this plan! This plan will fit and benefit everyone’s life regardless of your current situation or health status! I have pinned the plan to the home page of my site and will be posting more information, tracking sheets, habit ideas, etc… over the next week! I would love for you to all start and follow the plan with me!

My official start date of The First Nine Weeks will be Sunday Oct. 5th. Please join me on this journey!

Be Peaceful,

The First Nine Weeks!

THE FIRST NINE WEEKS!

The First Nine Weeks is a program designed to help you develop new, exciting, happy and healthy habits to enhance your life! Studies show that it can take as little as 3 weeks (21 days) to build a new habit. With this plan you can build 7 new habits over a 9 week period. This plan is designed to fit any and everybody’s current level, situation, circumstance and status.

Basics:

Every week for the first 7 weeks you will pick a new habit to add (or build on a current habit.*)

Example:

Week 1= Write something positive each day. This can be something that happened, something you are thankful for or a positive thought.

Week 2= Continue with week 1’s habit plus read for 30 mins each day.

Week 3= Continue week 1 and 2’s habits plus add 10 mins of physical activity 3 days a week.

You will continue adding a new habit every week (or building on a current one*) for 7 weeks. On week seven you will add your 7th habit.

Remember it takes 3 weeks to build a habit so habit 5 still has 1 week left, habit 6 has 2 weeks left and habit 7 has three weeks left.

After adding your 7th habit you will continue to complete all seven habits for 3 weeks (week 7, 8 & 9) to finish the process. After week 9 you will now have 7 new habits. You can start this process over at any time to add new habits or build on to existing ones*.

*Building on to current habits.

Example:

Week 1 Read 10 mins a day. Week 2 Walk 10 mins a day. Week 3 Drink 1 added glass of water a day.

Week 4 Read 10 more mins a day (total mins). Week 5 Walk 10 more mins a day (total 20 mins). Week 6 Drink 1 added glass of water a day (total of 2 added)

Enjoy!

My First Blog Post Ever! Yayayayayaya!

I created this website a few months ago because I had finally decided on a name and didn’t want to lose it. However I never shared it publicly and have only told about 5 people about it’s existence. I played with the design and layout a bit but just didn’t know where to start. Two weeks ago an idea for kicking off the site hit me and invaded my thoughts so I begin putting it on paper. I am very excited about it but it’s not quite ready for the public’s eyes so while I finish it up I figured I could and should write my about page and share my site with friends and family! 😀

My Goal for officially launching the site is one week from today!

September 27th, 2014

In the meantime please read my about page😉

See you soon!
