The Clockwork BUSY Myth….
A little while ago I made a post about finishing the year STRONG. It’s really important because there’s something that happens this time of year – it’s like clockwork.
During the holidays, a surprising number of people say they are “too busy” to workout and stick to their routines.
I wanted to talk about the “too busy” excuse … because you are WAY TOO IMPORTANT to let that get in the way!
Earlier this year, we had a wakeup call to be grateful and thankful for our health – and we also had a lot of extra time on our hands.
Even with that extra time – just an observation here, not a judgment – many of us let our routines slide. Because we were too stressed, too worried, and everything felt too uncertain.
Don’t let being “too” anything stand in the way of your wellness! It’s time to get ahead of it, and the time to start is NOW.
You’ve probably heard of SMART goals before. It’s all about setting specific, measurable goals that are attainable, relevant to your life, and TIME-SPECIFIC. They have a deadline!
Well, we have a big deadline coming up – Dec. 31, 2020.
What can you do between now and then so that you feel fitter, healthier, and more energized than you do right now?
What can you do NOW so you’re not playing catch-up in January and start off the New Year with momentum!?
Let’s plan ahead and take action on the things we CAN control.
Today, take a few minutes to think about changes you can make. Things like:
1. Planning your meals ahead of time
2. Finding 20-30 minutes to exercise 3-4 times a week
3. Walking around the block each night
Doesn’t matter how big the goals are…just write it down and then start taking action!
Little things add up.
