It’s a matter of attitude

There is never a “good” time to start a diet or to start exercising. Often enough, myself included, I’ll hear people say: “I have too much work at the moment” or “I’m not feeling so well,” “My back hurts, my leg hurts..” Something always comes up. Either its a trip, or an event, or something that is more important than exercise. Well, those words are actually the “lazy” person inside who is used to the sedentary lifestyle, used to the daily routine of work, eat, and sleep.

Step away from your hectic life for a moment, and look at it from a different perspective. What can be more important than your own life or your health? Without good health, you won’t be able to work, play, be with the people who are important in your life, or accomplish any of the things you want to do in life.

So, my question to you is: “Why would you spend all your time working and running around, without caring for your health?” I’m not saying you should quit your job and become a health freak, but just take some time from your busy schedule and MAKE TIME for yourself. Have some “ME” time. If you say you don’t have time, you don’t have energy, then you are not prioritizing your health.

So an important element to good health is your attitude. Just do it, don’t think too much about it. Put it in your calendar and go when its time to go, GO. Start with just 2-3 times a week for only 30 minutes. Its not much time considering that one usually spends more time in front of the television or just having ‘tea’ with friends. If you can recognize that “lazy” person and push them aside, you are on your way to good health.

  1. so true! came across a friend who quoted edward stanley: "those who think they have no time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness".
