I was floating around the crystal clear water of lovely Lake Coeur d' Alene on Saturday feeling so happy and at peace. My kids were playing together in the sand and sunshine and my parents were sitting in the shade watching their grandchildren laugh. The past week has been busy and stressful at times as we continue to set up our new home, prepare for new adventures, and raise two amazing (but challenging) humans, but knowing that this hard work allows for opportunities to create memories like this one makes it all worth it, and reminds me 'why' I have chosen the path of wellness instructor and educator.
Each week I strive to provide fun, effective workouts and encouragement to others, and I am so grateful that I am able to serve those I care about by promoting wellness among my family, friends, and c2c Crew. Being productive during the week (which requires waking up early to workout, preparing nutritious meals, and nurturing my relationships), helps me to feel truly 'well', and in turn allows me to set an important example for my kids and to be more fully present during the evenings and weekends. Keeping my 'why' top of mind (and on a post-it in my bathroom) gives me extra motivation to stay focused, too."
What motivates you today? Reflect on your 'wellness why' and share it in the comments below. We encourage you to go beyond the scale to get at the heart of what drives you, for example: "I want to be able to keep up with my grandkids"; "I want to have energy to travel and explore new places"; "I want to be healthy so I lower my chances of heart disease, which runs in my family"....
We can't wait to hear your 'why', and we are hopeful that AUXO On-Demand can be a part of your journey.
