Why You Must Make Health A Priority
I’m going to be honest; health and wellness was not always a priority for me. It’s been a journey for sure and I’ve swung from both extreme ends of the spectrum – from feeling victorious and strong to viewing it as the bane of my existence.
Recently I realized a very important truth – when your purpose on earth is to play big, be a change agent, lead effectively or be a gladiator, then health and wellness NO LONGER becomes optional. It is required.
Whoa…now THAT was a major #BOL (breakthrough out loud) for me.
You see, it’s not just about looking good or having a certain physique. It’s not just an EXTERNAL conversation. Our body is the vehicle that gets us to our life purpose. And just as if you were preparing for a cross-country trip, you need to make sure your vehicle is in top condition to get you where you want to go.
My top three tips for setting health and wellness goals are really pretty simple:
- Be realistic. Make sure you set goals that stretch you, but don’t stress you. What trips us all up is when we set goals with unrealistic timelines. For example, releasing 20 pounds is a realistic goal, but expecting to do it in 3 weeks and keep if off is not.
- Surround yourself with an accountability community. This is so important that I decided to launch my own #snatchingmysexyback challenge. Join me by registering at befitwithlisa.com at my favorite price – FREE. We all can use someone to cheer us on and support us when we make good choices.
- Be willing to press the reset button. We all get busy and distracted. There is no reason to let a speed bump turn into a stop sign. Give yourself permission to press reset.
Remember, THIS is your community, and I love reading your comments. I sit for hours and read what you write. I can feel it in my heart when something inspires you or you realize, you are not alone (#YANA).
So please, drop a comment below and let me know if I triggered you. What was your biggest AHA? Are you going to join me it this fitness challenge? I sure hope so.
