We recently had an interesting conversation with a client … and the advice we gave her will probably surprise you.
She was SO frustrated because it felt like everything in her life was working against her goals.
She has a demanding job … her family life is hectic … AND she is taking on some new responsibilities with her aging parents.
“There is absolutely no time for ME,” she told us.
And you know what? She’s right. She has a TON on her plate. Some days it’s overflowing.
So we suggested she make a mindset shift … and CUT HERSELF SOME SLACK.
Which can be incredibly hard to do.
It’s not about being “on” or “off” her health routine.
Prioritizing her health does not have to mean “ALL OR NOTHING”.
Instead, it’s about doing the best she can RIGHT NOW.
Over the long run, it’s your everyday habits that have the biggest impact on your health.
- Making healthy food choices
- Choosing activity when it’s possible (walks, brief exercise sessions)
- When you can, schedule 2-3 workouts a week (in pen) in your calendar
- Getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night
All of these actions will add MORE to your life.
More energy … less stress … more vitality to take on each and every day, feeling strong and empowered.
And it may sound counterintuitive, but this is also a great time to work with a coach.
Because when you’re facing challenges, you NEED support, accountability, and a troubleshooter who can step back and see the big picture …
… and help you come up with solutions that work with your schedule & goals.
