Everyone should have a life philosophy or a mantra. It’s your own personal thoughts, developed from knowledge and experience. It’s your belief in this philosophy that keeps you motivated and inspired. It’s made you who you are.
In the world of health and fitness, I think having a philosophy is crucial. It’s that thought that you want to share with the world if you had the chance!
Living “healthy” looks a little bit different for each of us. And I think that’s pretty awesome! See what some of my favorite healthy living bloggers say are their very own fitness philosophies.

My fitness and healthy philosophy is Moderation. I believe that you should be able to enjoy a healthy balance of workouts, fitness and eating well MOST of the time, but also be able to allow yourself to go out and live it up sometimes. Have those nights where you drink a bottle of wine and eat 6 cookies to yourself 🙂

I strongly believe that fitness and a diet should help us achieve a fun, healthy life – not dictate our every decision and hold us back.

Do what works for you! Find a fitness routine you enjoy and you’re much more likely to stick with it!
Kim at Not so Ordi-Nanny Me
Don’t compare! Find what works for you and make sure it’s something you enjoy! We are all different and so are our workouts and dietary needs!

I believe healthy living means taking care of your health and fitness for the long term, but still leaving a little room for pizza and wine.
Marisa at Uproot Kitchen
I am constantly pushing myself by asking “What is the best version of me?” That definition changes constantly – some days it’s giving my body rest, some days that means recreating a comfort food recipe that I can’t stop thinking about, and some days it’s getting up early to fit in a workout so I can enjoy an afternoon with friends after work!

Health and fitness shouldn’t ever feel restrictive, it should enhance the life you want to live and it should be fun!
Clare at Fitting it All In
Honor true health, mind body and soul.

Working out doesn’t have to be work- find something you love to do and keep at it, while also treating yourself fairly and indulging every now and again!

Simple – “ Being healthy is a way of life. It’s not just about what you feed your body; it’s about what you feed your mind and the social environment you keep. -Dr. Steve Maraboli
Lindsey at Fit Life Pursuits (That’s me!)
Fitness is about getting away from the daily hustle of life and doing something good for yourself. It should be challenging and enjoyable at the same time.
Now, it’s your turn. Who’s fitness philosophy do you want to make your own?
