Day 19

Throughout your life you are only given one body. This body of course develops and may be changed over time. It’s important to take care of your body. That’s one of the reasons I gave  up sugar for Lent, because it’s part of my transition to eating the healthiest I can (while still eating beef and chicken). It’s a simple step in the right direction. I’ve decided to start working out more (I’m scheduled to run a 5K in May). It’s going to help me become the healthiest version of myself (and get ready for prom). When talking about health it’s important to also mention mental and emotional health. I try to stay stress-free and one of the ways I manage my stress is through meditation, cleaning and writing. You have to find healthy ways that make you feel better about yourself. It’s also important to surround yourself with people that want you to succeed and will help guide you along your path (and those that you can help guide). You are not alone on your journey. Remember that.

   

Nails

After doing some reading, I found out that my nails are damaged due to the use of acetone (frequently). I used to paint my nails like every three days, and I’ve currently stopped. I’m currently trying out a combination of VitaSurge and Hard as Nails by Sally Hansen. I started the VitaSurge last Saturday and the Hard as Nails Friday. The progress isn’t really showing, but I feel better with the glossy nail look (even though I miss my plain nails a little, I got used to them). I love doing nails ( to the point where people are like “Mayah you should do my nails!”). I think that it’s important to focus on your nail health though. Your nails are a part of your body too. Pamper yourself, and decide that you are worth looking how you aspire to look. Take care of your body, physically and emotionally. A simple two coats (and a top coat) of your favorite color nail polish can brighten your mood. Remember that you control your happiness. Start by taking care of you.
