I’ve always had trouble doing this but this year something has changed. Maybe because I am a bit older and wiser or maybe because I just love my body and mind a bit more deeply.
Here are some changes I made so July 5th is not so painful!
- Bring a water bottle EVERYWHERE – Staying hydrated is a key element to ensuring you do not drink or eat too much.
- Go the distance – parking is a hassle on the 4th no matter where you go, ditch the car & take a hike! Be sure to wear your cutest and most comfortable shoes :).
- Take a deep breath & take a look around. Life is good, if you are at work, great you are working, with family, friends or partying you can do this.
- Show gratitude for your freedom to be (even if it feels constricted at times)
