Journey to Healthy Living
There are so many things to think about when starting this journey. Allow me to share you six ways of encouragement to healthy habits for life inspired by American Fitness Professionals & Associates: https://www.afpafitness.com/blog/healthy-habits-for-life.
1. Practice Mindful Eating (become more aware of the food we put into our bodies and how it ultimately makes us feel). Try adding more salads to your diet.
2. A restful night's sleep should be at the top of the priority list (lack of sleep can disrupt your health--according to research, insufficient sleep can raise your risk of obesity, diabetes, mood swings, cardiovascular issues and other health concerns)
3. Turn goals into a priority (we often set goals and forget about them; write down goals and place them where you can see them)
4. Stay strong (it's okay to drop the ball, but just pick it up; you don't have to start over, just keep going)
5. Schedule just 30 minutes a day of exercise (30 minutes of any type of exercise could make a difference--walking, jogging, etc.)

Cancer Awareness Brunch - 2014
Cancer Awareness Brunch was held to raise awareness. Health and Wellness is important to all. Events like this allows us to keep each other educated and up to speed on topics of health; spiritually, physically, and mentally.
Four days before her 26th birthday, Erica Williams was diagnosed with breast cancer. Three years later she was diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. Erica is dedicated to sharing her story with a purpose of instilling hope, education, and healing to other women. Through her faith in God, Erica considers herself not just a “20-something-survivor,” but an overcomer. Erica currently resides in Little Rock with her husband, Kevan.
Mt. Pleasant appreciates the courage and willingness of Erica to for sharing her story and helping us raise awareness!
