The busier things get in our lives, the more out of control they seem. We are spouses, parents, daughters, sons, friends, aunts, uncles, employees, employers... and the list goes on.
We tend to let our health, fitness & diet goals slip to the bottom of our priority list. Stress keeps piling up, weight keeps piling on, and our health declines quickly.
That is where good goals setting & time management skills come in handy. Set specific health goals, write down what it will take to reach those goals, find support, schedule time for those goals, learn to say NO to things that do not fall in line with your life priorities including your specific health goals, and then get started. Lose excuses, they are wasted time, wasted breath, and overall they are counter productive to living a positive healthy life.
In order to properly take care of others, you MUST first take care of yourself! Manage YOUR time wisely. Keep a to-do list, a goal list and remember what is most important to you in your life.
