Find out why I am posting this photo

This is my friend Sally. The photo on the left was taken in 2020; the photo on the right was taken very recently. But this is categorically a weight loss story (mainly because Sally hasn’t actually lost that much weight, and still eats cake!). The reason I have posted this photo is because it illustrates a principle that I believe is massively important.

Prioritise your health - and watch everything else change.

When that first photo was taken Sally was just recovering from some serious health blows, and had decided to start doing yoga - Chi Living yoga in fact. Now she does yoga almost every day, and her life has changed in more ways than you can imagine. To people who are procrastinating about starting yoga, or who are too nervous or think that they don’t have the time, Sally says,

“Stop thinking about it, and go and change your life.”

But this isn’t just a post about Sally, although I could go on and on about her amazing and inspiring story!. It’s a post about the possibilities that open up when you start to put your health at the top of your list of priorities - not just your physical health, but your mental health, your intellectual health, your social health, and your spiritual health (whatever that last term means to you).

In a few weeks, millions of us will make New Year’s resolutions. Most of them won’t see the end of January. What I am suggesting is that we all have the opportunity to do something different today, not on January 1st; that we all have the opportunity to “stop thinking about it, and go and change your life”.

Obviously, I am going to say that a brilliant way to do that is to embark on a yoga and mindfulness journey with Chi Living. It has transformed my life, and the lives of many others who have started doing Chi Living yoga classes. But however you chose to do it, stop talking about it, and go and change your life. I would be over the moon if you tell me how you get on.
