No! – boost your self-worth by experimenting with new ways of eating and exercising.

The story goes that the longest journey begins with the first step, which is why YOU can begin anywhere. Don’t be overwhelmed by feeling you suddenly need to turn your whole life around. Rather start by making frequent small changes to your daily routine.

Eventually all these changes will add up to a significant improvement that you have made to your lifestyle. You could even begin like the overweight man who started with only two push ups a day. A year later he was trying on slim fit. This could be you too!

Nelson Mandela said: “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

Want some ideas to start being creative about caring for your physical health?

You can covert the crucial importance of drinking water into fun. Be imaginative and flavour your water with sliced cucumber, strawberries, orange and peach, or something completely unexpected. Make a jug of weak rooibos tea and flavour with mint, cucumber and crushed ice.

Children naturally love to run, climb, and tumble around; so tap into this creative energy and get playing with them. If you do not have your own children, organise a play date with your friends’ kids.

16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence

Act to seek out such suffering – it may be hiding in that very women or child in front of you. Fear and pain are hidden within victims of violence. They often tend to remain silent about their shame, pain and fear. They are likely to be all around; in a meeting, queueing in the canteen, or rubbing shoulders in a taxi. So reach out with kindness and love – you may prevent a trauma, even save a life, and help restore hope and belief in life.

Feeling worn out with low tolerance?

When it comes to cultivating resilience, the magic is in the very first step.
When cultivating your resilience become aware of your mental and emotional state. Remember that if you get into an anxious, or even angry ‘state’, you can easily go into a downward spiral where the negative feeling gets stronger. That’s called a ‘feedback loop’.
