Happy election day, everyone! It’s election day here in the United States.
The best part of elections is when they end. The commercials end. The attacks end. The media have to find something else to talk about. You get less mail in your mailbox.
I want to take this time to ask you something: are you voting for yourself?
Think about it. Voting for yourself means you make healthy, empowered choices about your life and your health.
You can go to the voting booth or order your absentee ballot, and you have a very small chance of influencing society and changing your life. It might be the least effective way of changing your life.
I’m not here to argue for or against voting. I want this to be apolitical. But if you want to have a profound change on your life and health, then you have to vote for yourself.
You can vote for yourself each and every day. If you haven’t been voting for yourself, ask yourself why? When are you going to vote for yourself? When are you going to take charge of your life? When are you going to make empowered choices? Next year? Next election?
The great thing about voting for yourself is that you don’t have to wait 2-4 years to vote for yourself. You can do it now.
One of the big shifts I made in my thinking is that today matters. It’s all that matters. It’s okay to dream about the future, but today is here and it’s the only guarantee we have.
So if you’re bingeing, overeating, purging, overexercising, or making other disempowered choices about your health, then it’s time to vote for yourself at least once today.
Until next week,
