Ok, now we’re going to take what you learned about yourself and create some “make time for a healthy self” magic!
Decide what healthy activity do you want to adopt.
Remember, right now you are choosing something to add, not something to subtract.
Don’t worry, I’m not trying to overwhelm you by adding more to your already full plate. Subtraction is part of this process as well and we’ll get to it later so keep reading.
What do you want to do to get active?
- Take walks?
- Ride your bike?
- Go on hikes?
- Try a spin class?
- Start doing push-ups?
- Finally, use the treadmill you bought during the New Year’s resolution season last January? I’m not judging, I’ve done it too!
Got one? Great! Write it down and hang on to it. You’ll need it shortly.
Time for subtraction!
Choose one or more things from your “optional/delegatable” list and delete or delegate them.
I realize that for some of you, this will be like cutting off your hand. Understand that this “nobody can do it better than me” need for control is what’s making you tired, frustrated, and ultimately unhealthy.
So are you really serious about this? If so, it’s time to let this stuff go.
OK, have you made your selections? Great! Put a big X on these items and let’s take the next step!
Schedule your healthy habit.
Drop it into your newly discovered pockets of free time and voila! You officially have designated wellness time! #selfcare
