#atozchallenge My A to Z Guide to a Healthier, Happier You!

a-z blogging challenge

 

In April, I am participating in the 2016 Blogging from A to Z Challenge!  My friend, Leanne, from Cresting the Hill told me about it so we are both going to give it a try. It will require commitment as we need to post something for 26 days, each day based on the alphabet and following a theme.

Today is  March 21 . and that means Theme Reveal Day!

At first, I wasn’t sure what to have as my theme, however, I thought the most natural topic and one I am passionate about is achieveing a Healthier, Happier lifestyle. So, DRUM ROLL PLEASE……..My theme will be……

My A to Z Guide to a Healthier, Happier You! (Watch out for the book!!!).

I won’t just be talking about the usual ‘diet and exercise’ topics associated with health. My philosophy is that to achieve a healthier, happier lifestyle, we need to take a holistic approach – in our mental health, physical health and spiritual health.

To me, Health and Happiness go ‘hand-in-hand’.  I don’t believe you can have one without the other so I’ll be focussing on ways to achieve the ‘BEST YOU THAT YOU CAN BE’.

When I reached midlife, I realised that if I wanted to enjoy this wonderful and new phase of life I had to start seriously looking at my health – being physically active and eating a balanced diet as well as having good mental and spiritual health.

I’ll be covering topics from Attitude to Zen, from Friendships to Relaxation techniques, from finding Balance in your life to Having a Vision and making your Dreams a reality. Have I peaked your interest?  I hope so!

I would love you to join me on this journey and hopefully pick up some tips on how you can make your life healthier and happier!

    You’ve got me pumped just reading your reveal. And you have “Z” covered, one of the hardest letters. Yes, 60 sizzles! (so does my age, 63). Best of luck!

    Sue, I am excited to follow this! You had me so inspired, I actually started writing my own “theme reveal” and was going to join the challenge at the last minute. But alas, common sense or flu-induced exhaustion overrode that moment of spontaneity, and I decided to just follow along as a spectator this time. 🙂 Looking forward to following your posts this month!

    Sounds like a great theme. I could stand to be a better me, so I’ll be back to see how your A to Z progresses. This is the second time I participated in the challenge. It’s a LOT of work. But it’s rewarding and fun. And you get to meet so many cool new bloggers.
    Wishing you the best in your April Challenge!

    Sue, that sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun, to read! And it sounds like quite the challenge, 26 days of writing is a big commitment. I know you’re up to the challenge and I can’t wait to see what you come up with! I’ll be back to check it out.

      Thanks Nikki I think it will be challenging but I plan an e-book at the end using my posts so that is an added bonus.

    I agree with your concept; you basically have to “fix” the whole body if you want to try to fix one thing of it otherwise it will be potentially a fail. If one is overweight, they need to figure out what caused it, boredom, loneliness, stress, etc. If they don’t get to the root of the problem, no amount of weight loss or weight loss surgery even will “cure” them. All parts need to work together for the good of the body I do believe!

    enjoy the challenge!

      Hi Betty! Yes to me after years of yo-yo dieting I realise it is all about finding balance and that being fit and healthy is not just in the physical sense. I’m looking forward to reading your posts on Arizona. Have a great week and see you at the Challenge.!

    What a great idea, Sue! I love how you’ll be focusing on all aspects of achieving a healthy life and not just one area like weight loss. I’m excited and anxious to read what you have in store for us!

      Thanks Monica! I will see how I go but it is something I believe in so if you write from the heart you can’t go too far wrong. Thanks for your friendship and support as always.
