What is Blue365®? According to the Blue365® website – Blue365 offers exclusive health and wellness deals, keeping you healthy and happy, every day of the year. It’s a national program offered by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association to members of participating Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield Companies. Think Groupon or LivingSocial for members of participating Blue Companies. Who doesn’t love a deal these days?
For those of us who want to live a healthy lifestyle or for those of us who want to BEGIN to make changes in our life to better ourselves physically and mentally, having a website that offers discounts on deals relevant to our lives can make a huge difference.
Signing up for the website took less than 2 minutes. After shopping around and looking at the different nationwide deals and then various local ones I decided to purchase a course from eMindful. I had recently read an article on CNN Health about mindfullness helping to curb overeating.
I am someone who constantly struggles with overeating so the eMindful courses grabbed my eye. This month eMindful was offering a course on Bringing Calm and Focus To Overwhelming Situations. While there isn’t one specific overwhelming situation going on in my life I would venture to say that on a weekly basis I feel overwhelmed.
Many people find it easy to raise three children – I’m not one of them. Not only am I constantly exhausted from everyday life, but couple that with chasing around 3 kids 6 and under and I hit a wall weekly. At night I often find I am in a foggy blur waiting for it to be time for them to go to bed so I can go to bed as well; if it weren’t for my husband I am not sure how I would make it through some nights.
I am hoping that taking this virtual class will help me learn tips on being more mindful not only in overwhelming situations but that the tips may cross over to other areas of my life. There really is no time like the present to start living the life you want. Change doesn’t happen overnight (much to my dismay).
Little things do however add up to big things. Taking the first step to live a healthier, happier life can make all the difference years down the road.
10/1/00 I ran my first road race. I wasn’t fit. I wasn’t living a healthy lifestyle, but it was the beginning of something that has ultimately changed my life for the better. I have over the past 12 years had many ups and downs. I’ve fallen off the healthy living cycle more times than I can count, but it’s true when they say: it’s not how many times you fall but how many times you pick yourself back up again.
As a mother of three I don’t just have myself to think about anymore. I want to be fit, happy and healthy so I can be a good mom to my children. I want to be a good example for them. I want to live a VERY long life. I want to see their children and their children’s children. My great grandmother lived to be 101 years old; I want to follow in her footsteps.
