All Roads Lead to YES!

Do you ever have the thought “Should I go?”…. do not worry, you are never alone with this question. 

Majority of people will question whether to do something and especially when it comes to taking time for yourself and your own health & well-being, MANY people question and then choose to do something other than taking care of themselves.

Myself included, until about 9 years ago when I got serious about taking care of me!  I used to question whether I should go to a class or go to the gym a couple of times a week.  When it came down to going to the gym, I would often sell out on myself because I did not enjoy running on a treadmill or lifting weights. It was easy to say “no I won’t go.”

Even when I started Zumba, as much as I enjoyed it, there would be times I would say “nah, not today!” but what would end up happening is that one day would turn into a whole week and then I would feel anxious, lethargic and behind the game of taking care of me rolling into the next week….

Once I adopted the mentality of still asking myself “should I go?” with full intention of the answer always being “YES!” no matter how I felt (unless running a fever), I would ALWAYS feel better that I went.

It is so easy to sell out on ourselves and get busy in the day-to-day. Honestly though, once I started being consistent with taking care of me, the Day-to-day just got really easy and more fun too!

Take time out for YOU….ALWAYS!!

Take Time Out to Enjoy Your Day Everyday!

I completely understand the world of deadlines, late meetings, early mornings and everything in between.  I used to be that person that made no time for myself because I was always like the hamster chasing the wheel….wanting to be better, make more money, be praised more for what I could do.

I reached a point where my health was paying the price for my “better, faster, wealthier, harder working” mentality.  

There was a day when the line got drawn in the sand and I knew I was going to start taking small steps to taking care of not only all of my responsibilities but also to take care of myself.

Honestly, no one will take care of you unless you are willing to take care of you. YOU are the first person you wake up to everyday….in fact you are the FIRST person YOU talk to everyday!  You tell yourself how the day is going to go, how you will feel, whether you got enough sleep last night, etc.

Why not tell yourself that you deserve 45-60 minutes a day to either exercise, dance, laugh, meditate, go for a run, take a class, ride a bike, go for a swim? 

Many people find that taking 45-60 minutes to themselves each day to work out in some way, allows them to be more productive on whatever task they are embarking on.  

I challenge you to take a 30 day challenge!  

For 6 weeks, I challenge you to take 60 minutes to work out for 5 days a week and keep a journal of how you are feeling and what accomplishments you make during this time frame.  Then come back here and let me know how you did.  You choose the fitness and time frame for each week 5 days a week.  If you are not sure what to do, contact me and we can put together a wellness plan, otherwise, pick your own and go for it and let us know how you made out!

If there is one thing I have learned in this life, is that life is much too short to wait for “some days” to show up.

Some day IS now!
