I have officially launched BrittFit – my new online health and fitness business! Now I am sure some of you might be wondering why I would feature BrittFit on a conservation based website.
On the surface, the two topics may seem rather different. But I believe upon taking a deeper look, you will realize just how interconnected they can be.
Answer these questions for yourself…
How do you feel when you consistently strive to take care of yourself – mentally, physically, and spiritually?
What happens to your mood after going for a nice walk or a hike outside?
Are you more inclined to help yourself and/or others when you regularly take time to sweat?
Now, consider your answers to each of these questions…
While everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I believe it is safe to concur that positive self-care will generate additional positive feelings throughout our lives.
We generally feel more likely to take pride in the world around us (people and animals) when we are also taking care of ourselves.
With that said, I have seen far too many people sacrifice their health for the demands of a busy schedule, a temporary feeling, or an unbelief in their abilities.
And I firmly believe that when we sacrifice the wellness of our bodies, we also negatively interfere with our ability to have a positive influence on the world around us. Often, this may be subconscious or more obvious; but nonetheless, we are preventing ourselves form growing into the best possible stewards of the planet.
I also believe that the appreciation we show for ourselves when we invest in our wellness will permeate into the wildlife and environments around us. Whether human or wild, were all created by God to nurture our bodies by staying active, exploring new territories, and eating healthily.
I think sometimes we forget that although we are human – our hearts, organs, and lungs serve the same purpose as those within our planet’s wildlife: to survive, to grow, to serve God, and to provide us with the best opportunity to live abundantly.
This is after all one of the biggest threats to wildlife around the world; our inability to see our own interconnectedness. Call me crazy, but when I look into the eyes of an animal I feel that I can understand its need for love and respect. The same love and value that all of us deserve. And while I can’t always communicate with animals, I truly believe that fitness can help others to understand their own value and potential.
If BrittFit can encourage positivity within human lives, I believe it can also be reciprocated in our actions towards the planet. And if nothing else, a portion of all BrittFit funds will be saved and donated towards the valuable work of conservation organizations.
While I don’t know what the future brings, I do know that we each have control over the decisions that we make towards our health and wellness. I also believe that these decisions – big or small – will ultimately play a role in how we approach conservation and our relationship with other species.
When we take care of ourselves, we exude an energy of love and compassion that has the potential to change relationships with the wild world around us. Feeling confident from the outside increases inward strength. Inward strength allows us to believe in our own God-given power. And through that power we each have the opportunity to help the planet, protect wildlife, and serve God.
