Malaysians are the most caring people in the world. Don’t believe me? Look at a scene that I put together, let me know if you think it’s typical of Malaysians.
Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s quite endearing in its own way, speaks volumes of us as a society.
What if we apply the same amount of effort and energy of caring about others’ well-being… to ourselves?
Instead of asking others, “How are you?”
We ask ourselves, “How am I?”
What do you think the answer would be?
The whole world and my nephew knows that ever since I started on Bootcamp, I’ve been taking all this health and wellness business more seriously. I pay more attention to what goes into my body, what I do to work them off and so on.
Some of you would know that not too long ago, I did something that I’m most proud of, for the good of my health and body. Yeay to me!
So yes, now that I am on this journey, I want the world to be healthier too! I know sometimes it’s a bit annoying, but I don’t mind being an annoyance if it would help you in your life! You don’t necessarily have to totally transform, but small steps will suffice (for now).
After all, the hardest part is taking the first step. I’m speaking from experience!
Some would say the hardest people to love is ourselves. That doesn’t make sense, does it??
I took the Nestle Wellness Profiler test on Facebook, answered (very honestly!) 15 easy questions about myself in less than 3 minutes and realised that my attitude towards my health and lifestyle is…
Can you believe it that I’m very close to perfection? 😉 Go take the test and let me know your result!
But yes, I do think that my missing link at the moment is healthier food options. The unfortunate fact is that in KL (and a lot of other places), eating healthily for your body is not healthy for your wallet. I’ve been trying to knock some sense into my head, to stop being a cheap skate and look at it as a physical and health investment for MY future.
If you have ‘graduated’ from one of those easy, simple, total beginners’ recipe books, you know where to pass them on to! 😉
If you want easy tips and information to kick-start your health and wellness journey, check out Dear Nestle for articles that will prove useful to you. They have tips and advises on recipe, working out and even the occasional beauty and grooming tips (e.g. Food to Make You Look Gorgeous).
Now for the kick-start to working out part:
