…that there is a severe lack of movement in our country. If you are blessed with the ability to exercise your body, you should do so as often as possible so long as it doesn’t become an unhealthy obsession.
…that we’re all over thinking things. We know what is healthy, and by obsessing over the exact balance of meals or the quantity of a specific nutrient, we start to counteract the benefits of the food with the stress of choosing it.
…that proper exercise can’t be qualified by hours or number of workouts. Why is working out for one to two hours a day overdoing it, when in school it was a success to make it to the weekend tournaments where we played multiple games in a row? (See: severe lack of movement and over thinking things.)
…that people have forgotten the golden rule.
…that part of being a mature adult is recognizing that other adults have the right and responsibility to make their own decisions. And that we must trust that their decisions are the right ones for them, regardless if they would be the right ones for us.
…that if they aren’t the right decisions, it will be a learning opportunity. We all mess up sometimes. There is no need to call others out on their misjudgments.
…that people are SO much cooler in real life.
…that no one needs to eat dessert in order to prove they are balanced. If you are craving it, have it. But if you’re not, or if you have other goals, stick to the healthier options.
…that there are tons of amazing cities in the world, but there is nothing quite like being home.
