Healthy habits create healthy attitudes.
When we feel good about ourselves, that feeling tends to carry over into other aspects of our lives.
Our outlooks improve and, as this happens, our relationships and even our opportunities improve.
But external results must not be our primary motive as they are largely outside of our control.
Our focus should be on living better, feeling better, and behaving better.
By changing our actions in a healthy way, we change our bodies and minds in a healthy way.
Inevitably, this will have a natural ripple effect in the rest of our lives.
Change like this happens slowly, over a long period of time, however, so we have to be patient and trust the process.
The truth is, if we are healthier in mind, body, and spirit, even if nothing around us changes in kind, we will still be better off for our efforts and more well adapted to interact with an unhealthy world in a healthy way.
