Talk about living your passion!
Health and Fitness means much more to me than looking good in a bikini. Your body is the vehicle that carries you through life. By caring for your body and maintaining a healthy lifestyle you help shape the quality of your future. In my field I often see that strength and flexibility can mean the difference between a person returning home to live alone, or requiring long term care. Its time to stop remediating problems, and start preventing them.
Studying Occupational Therapy has given me a much more significant appreciation for all the things my body is capable of, and I want to maintain that for as long as I can.
I believe that healthy living is about balance, and creating sustainable healthy choices. Its about variety of experience, and life long learning. Its about finding the beauty in the things you are capable of, expanding so you can do more, and sometimes accepting the things that you cant do.
Thank you for taking the time to follow my journey. I hope that in some way it is able to positively influence you to start your own journey. I love hearing about peoples successes, so please feel free to share and comment.
