When talking about confidence there are things that you have to be pro active about to better your confidence. From my last confidence post I talked about God being the source of you confidence and it still has not changed. There is only so much God can do for you some things you have to work on your own.
Now some of you maybe thinking walking really, yes really. For some people it can be going to the gym, Zumba classes, yoga or anything else. For me I have found that walking works best for me right now and it costs me nothing which is amazing.
Fun fact: it is actually proven that walking is better than running.
Since I started walking my confidence levels have greatly increased and l feel better. From my last post I mentioned feelings fluctuating and this is my one way of mastering my feelings. Here are the benefits I have experienced so far;
◦ Improves digestion
I used to get bloated so frequently and most of you may know the feeling, it sucks. My metabolism is so much faster and I do not even remember the last time I was bloated. Honestly speaking I love food and when I would eat even a little I would be bloated. But now I can eat like a normal person and not feel like crap.
◦ Aids in weight loss/ maintains weight
In October I felt like crap I did not like the way my body looked. I thought my weight was ok, I was not over weight but I still wanted to loose a few kilos. My mid section has always been a concern, I have always wanted to have flat tummy. Since I started walking I have shed some weight and I look so much better. My tummy is so much flatter which is what I always wanted. Now I am still walking but now it’s to maintain my current weight it’s build muscle. If you are looking to shed weight or maintain it, this can be the thing for you.
◦ Uplifts mood
I struggle with mood swings and this has helped me greatly. My hormones have stabilized and I cannot be more happier. I love the fresh air in the morning and I am happier in nature.
◦ Increases productivity
During my walk I have plenty of time to think about my plans for the day and in general my brain functions better. I wake up super early and this helps me get a head start before everyone wakes up.
◦ Prayer time
This is one of the most important thing for me. There are little to no cars meaning less noise it’s just so peaceful and when I go at almost six the birds are still singing it’s beautiful. I go with no phone and so I have no distraction and I can fully fellowship with God. With time I now even look forward to my walks at first it was a pain but I feel so much better afterwards.
I have so many more benefits but these are the most important that I wanted to share. What do you guys do mantain , loose weight and to boost your confidence let’s continue the conversation down below. Thank you for reading, till next time bye ………
