How to Make and Stick with a Commitment to Health and Wellness
People often ask me how I make a commitment to my health and wellness and stick to it.
Well, first, and I’ll just be honest, I am anal-retentive. I like following things to get myself better and keep myself going. 🤪
But the main thing I do is view it as taking care of a relationship. And like all relationships, you can’t just take take take, or you’ll be single, so you have to listen and nurture it.
Life gets hectic, and it’s all too easy to place our own well-being at the bottom of the never-ending to-do list. But here’s the truth, and I want you to really hear this:
It’s not easier to do nothing. It’s not cheaper. It’s not more convenient. And it’s definitely not selfish to invest in yourself.
Your body wants to live this wonderful life that you do, but it needs TLC. And TLC is not forcing your body to get somewhere; it’s listening to it and giving it what it needs.
Now, the problem people run into is that they don’t view it as a priority, and then when they realize they need to do something, they “just want it to happen right away.”
Imagine if somebody treated you like that in a relationship. 💥
The secret to making a lasting commitment to your well-being begins with one fundamental question:
𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵’𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘸𝘩𝘺?
𝘞𝘩𝘰 𝘥𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦?
Before you start planning what you’re going to do for your health… and where… and how much it will cost, and how much time it will take… BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE, YOU MUST KNOW WHO YOU WANT TO BE AND WHATS YOUR WHY.
It’s what will get you started, and it’s what will keep you going.
So, I want you to think about this. It may come to mind right away. Maybe it takes a few minutes of reflection or discussion with a special someone.
WHATEVER IT TAKES, take your time with this step!
This is an empowering and calming step. Now, you have a foundation to work from to search for how to get there. As opposed to not knowing, continuing “random acts of movement,” or expecting somebody else to do it or fix you.😤
Work will still be done, and you will get frustrated. But as Eckhart Tolle says “𝑙𝑖𝑓𝑒 𝑖𝑠 𝑛𝑜𝑡 ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑒 𝑡𝑜 𝑚𝑎𝑘𝑒 𝑦𝑜𝑢 ℎ𝑎𝑝𝑝𝑦 𝑖𝑡𝑠 ℎ𝑒𝑎𝑟 𝑡𝑜 ℎ𝑒𝑙𝑝 𝑦𝑜𝑢 𝑔𝑟𝑜𝑤.”
And if you choose to walk this empowered path, you will learn and grow into a life more significant than you can imagine.
