In the past few posts, I have given a lot of attention to mental health and the importance of taking care of your mind. There is one other thing that is just as important as your mental health, and that is your PHYSICAL wellbeing. Too many people ignore or put off their physical well being, meaning working out and staying fit. “I will wait until New Years and then I will start my workout routine!”. Yeah right…..
At the CPG company I work at, we see a spike in demand on salad dressing around the month of January, which is the time that people make their new years resolutions and buy and consume for salads. That’s great, but do majority of people keep this resolution…no!
Instead of trying to work out or making a resolution, you must make it part of who you are. You need to go ahead and make it part of your lifestyle. Instead of “I am going to work out 5 days per week”…make that statement like this…”I am an athlete that works out 5 days per week”. Embed it into your mind and lifestyle.
“Yeah that’s great and all, but I don’t have time”. All that I hear is an excuse. People have time, they just choose not to utilize to their best of their ability. Don’t believe me, go ahead and check that time tracking app on your phone. How many hours do you spend on your phone on social media or other apps? It’s simple, take 20 minutes of that time out of your day and work out. Everyone has enough time, you just have to make it yourself and commit to enbeding it in your everyday lifestyle.
Challenge: Do some sort of physical activity for 20 minutes per day 5/7 days of this next week.
