5 INCREDIBLE WAYS HEALTH+FITNESS WILL BENEFIT YOUR SELF-WORTH



REASON #1

REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY HELPS BOOST ENERGY

I don't know about you, but I can ALWAYS use a little extra energy throughout the day. Feeling tired and groggy also tends to make me a little grumpy, which we all know isn't fun. I am less productive and less proud of my efforts during the day. With that added boost of energy, I feel better, I am happier, I accomplish more. All of those benefits will also lead to a better understanding of our self-worth. 


REASON #2

REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IMPROVES MENTAL HEALTH AND MOOD


It has been proven through many different studies that physical activity can actually help give you an emotional boost. Chemicals that create a happy and relaxed feeling are stimulated and released in your brain through physical activity. Along with the science behind it, caring for your body can help boost your confidence and self-esteem and even lead you to feeling better about your physical appearance


REASON #3

REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY CAN HELP ELIMINATE FUTURE HEALTH PROBLEMS


Dealing with health problems can cause tons of extra stress to your life. By taking care of yourself through physical activity you can potentially prevent many of these health risks from occurring in your life. Not only will you have time to live your life more fully, you won't be dealing with the many struggles that come from health problems. 



REASON #4

REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY CAN HELP PROMOTE BETTER SLEEP

Lacking sleep can cause many different issues like health problems, difficulty thinking + learning, depression, aging skin, forgetfulness, weight gain, impaired judgement, and many more. If you are having a difficult time falling asleep or struggling to stay asleep, regular physical activity could be your solution. Making regular physical activity a part of your daily routine can help you fall asleep much faster and while you are asleep cause you to sleep even deeper. WISE TIPDon't exercise right before you go to bed. Doing so could cause you to be too energized making it difficult to fall asleep.


REASON #5

REGULAR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY INCREASES YOUR CHANCES OF LIVING LONGER

Life is good. Life is fun. Science has shown that making regular physical activity an important part of your life could increase your chances of staying alive longer. Not only will your chances of living longer increase, but the likelihood of you living a happier and healthier life will increase as well. There are only a few other lifestyle choices that will affect your health as much as physical activity will. Studies have show that those who do some form of physical activity for around 7 hours each week lower their chances of dying early by 40 percent than those who spend less than 30 minutes a week being physically active. That is a huge percentage. Get moving to live longer!



It is so important that we use exercise and physical activity to promote a positive and healthy life. When we exercise simply to change the way we look instead of caring for the body we have been blessed with, we miss so many of the benefits. In fact, exercising simply to "fix" or "change" our bodies can ultimately be more detrimental to our self-worth. 


Stop resenting your body and instead learn to appreciate, love, and care for the body that you have already been blessed with. 


At BE WISE, we are determined to fight back against the lies that society has thrown at us while providing you with truth. The truth of who you really are. The truth of how much you are worth. And the truth of the reality that you, our beautiful friend, really truly are far more precious than rubies. 


If you are committed to finally recognizing your own infinite worth, then you are in the right place. We have set up a year long program, designed with that purpose in mind; helping you recognize your worth: The BE WISE "More Precious Than Rubies" Program



With this program, the hard part is done for you. We have done all the research, created all the workbooks, magazines, and courses. All you have to do is stay committed.

PRODUCTIVITY - EMPOWER YOURSELF WHILE MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR TIME


It's a super snowy and cold Saturday morning. Any plans I had have been put aside and I'm staying in. I decide to go through all my old emails in an attempt to get organized while catching up on "The Bachelor". I haven't seen any of the episodes yet from this season so I figured today would be a perfect day to indulge. 

Now, normally I have really enjoyed the Bachelor. I don't think I would go as far as saying that I am a fan, but I have always found it interesting and just like a car crash, it's hard to look away. 

I set up my laptop next to my other computer so I could watch while organizing my emails. The "plan" was to watch until I was caught up... I know... don't judge. And as I watched I would surely be able to get quite a bit done... after all, that is a lot of TV time to catch up on. 

I watched. I couldn't look away. It draws you in. As these shows are supposed to. 

Guess how many emails I got through. 

Five. 

Yep. That's it. 

Now, in my defense, I only watched the first episode. Once I realized that I would not be able to be any type of productive while watching, I closed my laptop and focused 100% on the task at hand. 

Surprise, surprise, I got significantly more done. 

Now anyone who knows anything at all about "productivity" knows that multitasking is not beneficial in the least. This is nothing new. I should have known that reading through important emails while binge watching the Bachelor would not have been successful. 

But... this is not all this post is about... I learned something else today. Something much more profound. 

As I closed the laptop I had a thought come into my head. 

You know... those thoughts that you like to pretend you never had. The ones where you know you should listen... but... listening requires change. 

"Stop watching the Bachelor." 

This thought seemed kinda silly since I had literally just closed my laptop and stopped watching. But I knew this is not all the thought was... It wasn't for the moment. It was for good. 

I pushed the thought aside. Let's be honest. I enjoy the Bachelor. It's entertaining. It's one of the very few shows I really actually like watching. 

However... it always leaves me feeling the same. 

Empty. 

It doesn't inspire me. It doesn't lift me up. It doesn't teach me anything worthwhile or leave me feeling better than I did before. 

After watching today, I felt... yucky. 



Now. Don't get me wrong. If you absolutely LOVE the Bachelor, yay for you! This post is not intended to make people stop watching or enjoying the Bachelor.  

The Bachelor was my kryptonite. I didn't really realize it until today. I have wasted so many hours watching this reality TV show when instead, I could have been living my own reality. You know, the reality that is actually real. 

As I watched the "sneak peaks" of the upcoming season I realized that there was nothing really worth watching. I realized that something I used to enjoy, now actually made me a little sick inside. I realized that there are millions of other things that are far more worthy of my time. 

Life is so short. Why do we waste time doing anything that is not uplifting, encouraging, or helping us to grow. 

If the Bachelor makes you feel like you are a better person after watching, more power to you! I have not been so fortunate. I realized today, that as much as I might "think" I enjoy watching it, the reality is that nothing positive is coming from it. 

In order to stop wasting precious time, being more productive and focused, and continuing to feel uplifted and inspired, eliminating the Bachelor is something that I have chosen to do. 

And guess what? IT'S EMPOWERING. 

I have chosen to say "no" to something that doesn't help me improve. I have chosen to say "no" to something that no longer serves a purpose in my life. I have chosen to say "no" to something that is nothing other than a time waster that leaves me feeling yucky inside. 

But it's not just the Bachelor. There are so many things that we fill our lives with that are not only not productive, but are also potentially detrimental to our overall wellbeing and self-worth. Be willing to say "no" to anything that does not leave you better than you were before. Be willing to say "no" to anything that does not help you to improve. Be willing to say "no" to anything that is getting in the way of you understanding and recognizing your true worth. 


What are you wasting too much time doing? 

What are you continuing to do even though it only seems to leave you feeling empty inside? 

What is your "kryptonite" and how can you overcome it? 

We want to help you become your best self while recognizing your worth. We created the "More Precious Than Rubies" Program to help you accomplish just that. To help you be more productive and eliminate your own "kryptonite" download our FREE Workbooks


Remember, YOU ARE MORE PRECIOUS THAN RUBIES.

MORE PRECIOUS THAN RUBIES - HOW TO RECOGNIZE YOUR WORTH




This year the theme for BE WISE is "More Precious Than Rubies" inspired from the scripture in Proverbs 3:15

You, yes YOU, are truly more precious than rubies. However, we live in a world that often causes us to question our worth. We are bombarded with countless opportunities to compare ourselves to others and lose sight of our worth. 

With social media so accessible, we are just one click away from feeling like the person we are just simply isn't enough. With advertising companies that prey on our insecurities to make a sale, it's no wonder we don't recognize our infinite worth. 

At BE WISE, we are determined to fight back against the lies that society has thrown at us while providing you with truth. The truth of who you really are. The truth of how much you are worth. And the truth of the reality that you, our beautiful friend, really truly are far more precious than rubies. 

If you are committed to finally recognizing your own infinite worth, then you are in the right place. We have set up a year long program, designed with that purpose in mind; helping you recognize your worth: The BE WISE "More Precious Than Rubies" Program

The first step to recognizing your worth is... making a firm decision to work consistently to recognizing your worth. It might not happen immediately (in fact, it most likely won't). But, if you are committed to consistently striving to recognize and understand your worth, you will be far more likely to achieve it. 

With this program, the hard part is done for you. We have done all the research, created all the workbooks, magazines, and courses. All you have to do is stay committed. 



The first section of this program is dedicated to HEALTH + FITNESS. During January, February, and March we will be covering topics that will help you use health + fitness to recognize and feel of your worth. 

Believe it or not, taking care of our physical bodies can have  a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves overall. The more we take care of our bodies, the more we will value and respect them. The more we value and respect our bodies, the more we are able to feel of and recognize our worth. 

With the new year, many people (maybe even yourself included) have already set resolutions to "get in shape". While the goal of getting in shape isn't a bad one, we hope that as you strive to develop habits of good health + fitness, you will focus more on "loving and appreciating" your body, than "fixing" your body. As you exercise and eat well, we hope that you do so out of respect for body, not out of resentment towards your body. 

How can you better care for and appreciate the body you already have? How can you learn to recognize your worth by caring for and respecting your body? Use these questions as a starting point to setting your own goals of health + fitness. 

Without setting any goals, the likelihood of anything changing is slim. Take some time to really ponder what you would like to work on and improve and then set your own goals. (Keep in mind, the whole idea is to help us LOVE our bodies, not RESENT our bodies).

We have created WORKBOOKS to help you throughout this journey. To download all of the "More Precious Than Rubies" HEALTH + FITNESS Workbooks, click HERE. Start with the "Goal Setting" workbook this week.

Remember, YOU ARE MORE PRECIOUS THAN RUBIES.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FREEBIES


It's interesting to see all the many "New Years" captions that are flooding social media. It seems like people either loved 2016 or hated it. There's not a whole lot of middle ground. 


As obvious as it might sound, your year is exactly what you make of it. For those of you who have said, "2017 is going to be my year, I can feel it!", you're probably right. You've already decided you are going to have a good year and honestly, that's half the battle. 


The good news is, no matter what plans we might make or goals we might set, God is behind us 100%. While we are busy making plans for our year, God is busy making plans for our life. Trust in your journey. Trust that God has a plan for you.


At the beginning of last year I began creating the BE WISE Be Your Best Self Movement. I had a basic idea of what it would be, but never did I realize how much I would learn and grow in the process. Through my own research and study as well as through reading articles from my wonderful contributors, I honestly believe I have started becoming my very best self. 


If you didn't have the chance to check out any of our BE WISE Be Your Best Self Magazines and other goodies, I definitely recommend it. Not just because I created the program, but because I can tell you first hand that it really does work. 


If becoming your best self physically, emotionally, socially, mentally, financially, or spiritually are part of your new years resolutions, head over to our website and start our "Be Your Best Self" Program. The magazines are all free and most of the goodies are as well so there is really no excuse. 


ANNNNND while you are in the mood to become your best self and have your best year yet, I recommend downloading our FREE Resolutions Printable and make the most of your New Years resolutions.




For those of you who are true go-getters and really want to get the very most out of your year, you can get our entire BE WISE Resolutions Kit. For one week only we are offering 50% off the kit using promo code "RESOLUTION50" at checkout.   


This kit includes the resolution setting pages we talked about above but also contains other exciting pages like: daily, weekly, monthly goal sheets, journal pages, weekly planner, weekly checklist, daily to-do, and daily productivity.  




We spent all of 2016 creating the "Be Your Best Self" program JUST FOR YOU. It works. Trust me. I spent an entire year doing it and I can honestly say that it changed my life. The BE WISE Resolutions Kit was intended to help you make the most of your resolutions, and in turn helping you have your best year yet. When used together, there is nothing that can stop you! 


I hope that 2017 is all that you make it to be. You have the power to make your year be whatever you want it to be. If you want to have a good year, then have a good year. Make the most of every single day. You deserve to have a wonderful year, so have a wonderful year! 


Always remember that for every plan you make for yourself, our Heavenly Father is right there making plans with you. He is the grand designer of our lives. Trust Him. Turn to Him. Use Him to help you make the most of your 2017 and there is no way that it won't be your best year yet.
