Today I have been reflecting on lifestyle choices. I am wondering why some changes or choices are easier to make than others. And why some changes don’t stick.
I realized that it’s not about making them stick. It about recommiting on a daily basis to live a healthy lifestyle. I am so amazed right now that I have had this “light bulb moment” because this is something I teach in one of my presentations.
So the real secret to to long-term, permanent lifestyle change is making daily choices.
For me, today’s choice is to focus on my water consumption and to lift weights in addition to my cardio workout.
What healthy lifestyle choices are you making today?
Are you feeling the pressures of a chaotic life?
The busyness of life can drain us of energy, drag us down and cause disorder.
Daily pressures can be more bearable if you are careful enough during your daily and weekly planning to provide yourself with plenty of time to relax and rejuvenate. You are probably responsible for many things on a daily basis, but I am here to tell you that you are also responsible for including quality free time into your schedule. Scheduling regular free time into your schedule plays a large role in your ability to sustain a positive outlook. Each time you take a break from the disorder that is an unavoidable part of daily life, you can recover.
