I am passionate about leading a healthy lifestyle; I am always looking for new ways to improve my health in every aspect: mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually. The purpose of my blog is to keep me motivated and hopefully keep my followers motivated as well.
My goal is to use this blog & other resources to continuously find new ways to improve my overall well being & share my discoveries with others.
Where can I read about your new discoveries?
Under my navigation you will find a page titled “health bar” (tagged) this is the page of my blog where I keep all original health improvement related blog posts. So far I have posted about a number of different ways to improve your health: basic ways to start improving health, vitamins, natural hair care, positive thinking, etc.
What is the meaning behind your blog title?
As a recovering perfectionist, “Progress, not perfection” has become one of my favorite quotes. It reminds me to love myself and to take pride in both my big and small triumphs. I think it not only applies to those who are trying to lead a healthy lifestyle, but to anyone who has a goal in mind for themselves that they wish to achieve. It is easy to get obsessive over wanting to be perfect. Perfection doesn’t exist so this sets us up for automatic failure whether it be at work, in our personal relationships, or in our relationship with ourself. It inevitably leads to disappoint & feelings of failure. I think society in general puts unrealistic goals in our mind and an unhealthy emphasis on perfection. We are constantly surrounded by media. It has become natural to compare ourselves to photoshopped celebrities who have “perfect” hair, “perfect” skin, the “perfect” body. I think its time we set a better, healthier goal for ourselves: progress. Progress exists, progress is healthy, progress is more valuable than the false “perfection” that we see on a day to day basis. You may not be perfect at something, but that is no reason to fret. It is time we stop buying into the medias crap & start valuing ourselves. You are not in competition with anyone but who you were yesterday. Focus on always striving to be better than you were yesterday & you will reach new heights not only physically, but mentally and emotionally. You will experience an abundance of personal growth and become a better you.
