Hi, Adam here and welcome to my online Fitness Jump Start where I will address a question or concern each day from a variety of categories related to health, fitness, and nutrition. Here we go…
Missy, a client from Gold’s Gym, and good friend, wrote and asked me on Facebook…how can she manage a busy schedule with work and family, and still take care of her health?
Making Your Health Your Priority
I think this question comes up for most of us just with work, let alone with children. This is so important because if we aren’t taking care of our own health, how can we expect to be there for anyone else? If we tend to everyone else’s needs and not our own, then we put ourselves in hole that can be harder and harder to climb out of. This pattern can lead to a loss of our own sense of self, and overall well-being.
If you choose to make your health a priority, then your ability to manage your daily affairs, and be at your best with your family will improve dramatically. Making yourself a priority means that you are committed to balancing your life in a way that allows you to take time each and every day to maintain/improve your health.
The Importance of Planning and Support in Achieving Fitness Goals
Here are a couple tips that can make a big difference:
1. Sit down and create a schedule that includes weekly work, and family/relationship obligations, then schedule in each day the adequate time for you to handle your health commitment. Then follow it.
2. Reach out for support to your significant other, a family member, friend, or colleague, etc., and let them know what your objectives are.
Ask for their support, and how you would like that support to look.
If you are serious about making this permanent change in your life now, get out your scheduler and make an appointment for yourself every day, and follow it. Reach out for support when you need it. Those who are close to you, and care about you are going to want to support you with being healthier, so don’t hesitate to ask.
I also want to support you, and will make myself available to give you the coaching you want and need. Call, or email so we can get you on the fast track to reaching your goals. Again, you can schedule a free fitness or nutrition assessment.
Or you can call me directly at 1 310 396 2100 and I’ll talk with you about a personalized plan to fit your specific needs and goals.
Thanks for reading, and I will talk to you again soon.
