High Five Friday: Taking it easy and taking care of myself

In addition to renewing my focus on gratitude, I also want to work on celebrating things that I’ve done well. To that end, I found a great healthy living blog community writing prompt called High Five Friday. The idea is that we do so much in a week that we forget about, so this will be a great way to commemorate successes, achievements of note, and new abilities (not just health, happiness, or weight loss related).


Today I’m celebrating that I’ve taken a week off from running and cycling (due to IT band problems) and have still been getting at least 10,000 steps in every day. I’m also remembering and appreciating my morning walks again, and the simple happiness of the cold air on my face as I explore my neighborhood and meet other walkers doing the same thing. I’m listening to my body, honoring its needs, and restoring my soul, all in 45 minutes each day – that’s a win in my book!

Your turn: what have you done this week that deserves a high five?
