No Turning Back: Time on Earth is too Short!





Hello! How are you doing today?


As May concludes, a month filled with topics pertaining to mental health, fitness, sports, graduation, and motherhood, we want to address the concept of time. No one can reclaim lost time, but everyone can learn from past experiences to move forward and make the most of their remaining time. As we grow older, we can gain wisdom by reflecting on our past and then progressing. Dwelling on the past and living with regrets leads to feeling stagnant and out of control, which can negatively impact one's health, potentially causing illness or disease. Mental and emotional entrapment of the past can create disharmony in the body and therefore needs to be addressed before it becomes too detrimental to cope with.


Embrace Change

Recognize the fact that life is too short, yet filled with opportunities for growth and transformation if one wants to achieve such in their lives. While we may not get a chance to do things over, we must not live stuck in the past because no one has been able to turn back the clock on time. Instead, we can decide to embrace the present and make positive changes that can be impactful to our future.


Life is a journey filled with experiences, both good and bad. Moving forward healthily involves embracing change, learning from the past, and making conscious choices for a better today and ultimately future. Here are some tips to help you move forward and lead a healthier life.


  1. Embrace Change with a Positive Mindset

    1. Tip: Change is inevitable. Instead of fearing it, view change as an opportunity for growth and improvement. Visualize the positive impact this will have on your life, your energy levels, and your overall well-being. Change is the doorway to a better you.

  2. Reflect and Learn from the Past Tip: Use past experiences as lessons rather than sources of regret. Reflect on what you’ve learned and how you can apply that knowledge moving forward.

  3. Set Realistic Goals

    1. Tip: Set achievable, realistic goals that align with your desire for a healthier life. Break your goals down into small, manageable steps. One’s that you can achieve, but that will stretch you to come out of your comfort zone. Get ready to check off each box as you achieve your goals on your way to reaching the ultimate goal. Setting and achieving these goals will give you a sense of purpose and direction.

  4. Surround Yourself with Positive Influences

    1. Tip: Seek out supportive, positive people who encourage your growth and well-being. By surrounding yourself with positivity you can create a nurturing environment that fosters growth, one where you can stay on track to meet your goals.

  5. Practice Self-Compassion

    1. Tip: Treat yourself with kindness and understanding. Acknowledge your efforts and progress, no matter how small. Imagine the relief and peace you’ll feel when you stop criticizing yourself and start offering the same compassion you would give to a friend. Self-compassion helps you recover from setbacks and keeps you motivated to continue pursuing your health goals. You deserve to be treated with kindness, especially by yourself.

  6. Focus on the Present

    1. Tip: Stay present and mindful. Concentrate on what you can do today to improve your health and well-being. Nurture What Matters is about living in the now, focusing on what and who matters most to you. By focusing on the here and now, you can make better choices and appreciate the journey instead of being bogged down by the past or anxious about what the future will bring. Each present moment is a new opportunity to make positive changes in any and every area of your life when you are open to it.

  7. Celebrate You & All of Your Achievements

    1. Tip: Take time to celebrate your successes, no matter how small. Acknowledging your progress keeps you motivated. Recognizing your achievements, big or small, reinforces your commitment to your health journey and motivates you to keep going. Celebrate yourself because you’re worth it.

  8. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

    1. Tip: Commit to being in balance by participating in regular physical activity, obtaining balanced nutrition, getting adequate sleep, and utilizing proper stress management techniques. Pause for a moment. What would life feel and look like for you if you stopped moving so fast and focused on living a more balanced lifestyle where you made healthier choices for increased longevity? Regular physical activity, nutritious meals, restful sleep, and effective stress management not only can improve your physical health but can also enhance your mental and emotional well-being. A healthy lifestyle is the foundation of a fulfilling life.

  9. Let Go of Perfectionism

    1. Tip: Accept that perfection is unattainable no matter how hard anyone tries, and that progress is what truly matters. A heavy load is removed from your shoulder or life when you realize and let go of the need to please others and try to be a perfect human being. Love yourself just as you are with your flaws, imperfections, beauty, goodness, and gifts.

  10. Stay Inspired

    1. Tip: Continuously seek inspiration through books, podcasts, mentors, coaches, or people who embody the healthy lifestyle you aspire to have. Let inspiration be your guiding light. The ability to focus on staying inspired keeps your passion for a healthy more balanced life alive and reminds you of why you started this journey in the first place. Let inspiration be your guiding light.


No Turning Back, Embrace Change and Move Forward

Life is precious, and every moment is an opportunity to make a positive change and move forward. Embrace change with confidence and resilience, knowing that each step you take towards a healthier lifestyle brings you closer to a more vibrant, fulfilling life you deserve. Remember that time on earth is too short, therefore, it is imperative to seize the day and make the most of every opportunity to improve your health and well-being. Your best life is awaiting you to step up and embrace what is to come. Every step you take towards a healthier lifestyle brings you closer to that goal. Don't look back too long, but instead, focus on the present so that you can move on to a productive future, one that will help you to manage to grow successfully. Let's take that first towards a healthier, happier you today,


Pondering Thought:

You are a powerful being in control of your present. Change is inevitable therefore, it is time to embrace it.
