Key Takeaways

  • “Life feels lighter and more free when I prioritize emotional health above all else.”
  • Emotional health plays a big part in your physical health.
  • Intentionality around how you start the day influences your intentionality throughout the rest of the day.
  • Fitness goals should be to mark progress on our journey, not to validate our worth. It’s important to remember that fitness is an ongoing journey, not just reaching a short-term goal.
  • Shame comes when we don’t give ourselves space to make mistakes.
  • “When we start our fitness journey from a place of guilt, shame, or fear, we compromise our emotional health and sabotage the positive change we want to make.”
  • Start by investing in your emotional health. When you start prioritizing fitness, do the things you enjoy doing.
  • Prioritize rest and actually rest during that time.
