Welcome to Two Thousand and Healtheaven
Hmmm… two thousand and healtheaven? I'm reaching a bit. I told you I would find 20Zen hard to top. I ‘theme’ my years these days, you see. I used to have a long list of resolutions that never got resolved, so one year (I think it was Two Thousand and Mate) I decided to just give the year a theme and really try to focus on one thing for the whole year.
This year it’s Two Thousand and Healtheaven. Time to pull up my socks and pull on my runners, because I’m not going to worry about anything other than getting everyone in Maxabellaland fit and healthy this year. Of course, LOML is already fit and healthy and, well, so are the Tsunamis, which leaves me – only me! – to carry the 20Healtheaven torch on behalf of us all. So valiant.
I’m not going to give you a long list of what I will and won’t be doing. Theming the year doesn’t work like resolutions. Theming is just being mindful of the theme. See, like most things that are actually really hard, it sounds easy!
It's being mindful of choices and remembering that every choice has a consequence, good or bad. It’s planning meals and deciding to go for a swim rather than read a book. It’s joining in on the trampoline, rather than just watching. It's taking good care of yourself. It’s putting health at the top of your mind every single minute of every single day - I just got a bit new year’s resolutionary there. Most days and most minutes will do.
Effectively, I’m going to keep my Two Thousand and Zen-like composure but add bit of ‘oomph’ to it.
So, hey there - HAPPY NEW YEAR! It feels like I’m going to be running towards a very good year this year. How are you feeling about the year ahead?
