Hey pretty! Now that the holidays are over, have you thought about your goals and resolutions yet? I sure did! Since the last year was pretty rough to me health-wise, I decided to make my health a priority.

And who doesn’t want to be healthy right?

I know many of you are struggling with health issues too so I combined this list of things you can do to greatly improve your overall health.

Most of them are not only easy but you can also do them without spending a lot of time or money.

It’s all about choices and a little effort, combined with a strong decision to take better care of yourself. And if you haven’t noticed yet, you’ll need to make that decision sooner or later.

Our bodies need love and care and we’re the only ones to give that to ourselves.

No one else is going to keep us healthy (unless you are still living with your loving momma who cooks those extremely healthy, home-cooked, love-filled meals and in that case – girl, I envy you with all my heart).

Plus, what’s a better time to start living healthier than the beginning of the year?? 🙌 So, let’s make this year a healthy one!

      Dear Faiza,

      Wow… Your comment made me cry… I can’t express how happy I am knowing that I have sparked this in your heart. This is the most important feedback I’ve ever received.

      You see, this is what I’m trying to do here. This blog is not for me, it’s for you. It’s not about me, it’s about you. I want this blog to be a source of sunshine on your dark days. I will do everything I can to help you all push through your problems and succeed in your life. Because IT IS POSSIBLE.

      I know this, because I’ve been there… Many many times. I’m not ready to talk about my depression in a blog post yet, but I will share it one day.

      What I want to tell to all of you now is… Don’t ever, ever, EVER give up. Even if it seems like it will never change… IT’S NOT TRUE. Things will get better. It might take some time (I had 5 years of serious, never ending problems), but you CAN push through. Or, if you feel tired fighting, just make a deal with yourself to simply WAIT IT OUT.

      Meanwhile, do come back to this blog whenever you need motivation. Try out the tools, read the posts, even multiple times if needed. Make tiny changes in your life and help yourself come closer to a better life.

      I’m with you.
