It is time to get yourself back on-track as we begin emerging from our pandemic lockdowns. Because let’s face it. If you’re like most people, chances are you’ve drifted away at least a little bit from your healthy lifestyle habits.
Many people’s lives have been flipped upside down for the past few months. Healthy foods have been harder to get … gyms and fitness studios were closed … kids have been home from school …. plus, there is a lot of stress!
It has been a LOT.
But now it’s time to dig in and get focused again! No excuses!
I know jump-starting yourself back up can seem like a big job, but the fact is … it really isn’t. In reality - all the resistance is just in your head! Wait....What?!
All those excuses and inertia are just thoughts in your head. They are not real … so don’t give away ANY of your attention or energy to them.
Your body WANTS you to eat healthy foods. Your body WANTS to move … and feel healthy, strong and energized!
The key is you just have to START … and take action, as soon as possible.
The longer you wait, the harder it will be to get back on track!
Remember how much better you felt both mentally and emotionally after a workout? It goes far beyond the physical boost. It gets you feeling o-so positive and focused and capable.
Energy to workout, meal plan and just generally take care of yourself seems non-existent when you’re steeping in stress. And it doesn’t take long before your healthy habits seem to belong to a different person from a time long in the past.
I know for me, stepping back into these habits reminds me how much control I have over my life and how I feel. And exercise and eating real food (not from a bag or box) boosts my confidence.
I encourage you to fall back in love with feeling great!
Start taking a few SIMPLE actions TODAY to get back to your healthy routines. You will NOT regret it … but you WILL regret putting it off if you wait too long.
Right now, think of one SIMPLE thing you can do to get back on-track. 15-minute workout? 10-minute meditation? Drink a water instead of a soda?
Then today or tomorrow DO that one thing.
The first step always feels like the hardest … but how many times have you said to yourself in life, “That was a lot easier than I thought! Why did I wait so long?”
