New Routines

New Routines

 
     We get stuck in routines.  Many of these routines are detrimental to our health and wellbeing.  This viral pandemic has shown us that we can break old patterns and old routines.  We have been forced to change our daily lives. 
 
     Many are working from home, many are not working, and many are staying inside for days on end.  Our ability to get certain supplies has been altered.  Many have fears, some very real, and some very overblown.  We are living in different times.
 
     The best thing we can do right now is to take care of ourselves and our loved ones.  A great way to do that is to purposefully change our daily routine.  It is normal human nature to go lazy at this time however.  Don't sleep the day away. Don't spend endless hours watching the news or TV or Movies.  Certainly some entertainment is good.
 
     What a gift of time to be able to start new habits and new routines. Begin a daily exercise program.  Start today.  Plan meals in advance.  Start today.  Connect with people you've been too busy to call or text.  Learn a new language, learn a musical instrument.  Get good with some new software.  Start a new project or plan a new business venture.
 
     We are now all very focused on our health.  Not getting the virus is our first focus.  But go well beyond this and begin to put focus on our overall health.  The best treatment for the Coronavirus is to not get it.  The best way to not get it is to have a strong and active immune system.  To develop our immune system we must eat properly and be active.
 
     Carrying extra body weight is toxic to our tissues and makes us more susceptible to illness.  While our focus is on our health, take it to the next level and work to get in the best health possible.
 
     We can come out of this time either in better or worse health and much of it has to do with what we do right now.  Develop new healthy habits now that will last well beyond this temporary change in our lives.  The worst thing is to come out of this with more weight added to our body and to be in poorer health.
 
     We are in control of our minds and our body.  Get going, start working, and make this year the healthiest yet.  That's a new routine we can live lean, live long, and live life with.

Snack Yourself Thin

We need to fuel our body at the right time with the right amount of food. Often we eat way too many calories at a setting and turn on the fat production machinery in our body. Small snacks throughout the day and a lean and green meal do the trick.

Yes or No

Decisions drive our life in a direction. We can choose that direction by the decisions we make. Decisions should be simplified to a Yes or No answer. Learn how to make better decisions and live the life you want.

Adventure

Life is an adventure in itself. Sometimes we get stuck in a routine and forget to venture out to see new things, experience new experiences, and meet new people. We must resist getting stagnant and seek a life of adventure, even if its within us.

The Path to Excellence

We can all do better. We have many paths that we can choose to take in life. Each time we take a new path we can move in either a positive or negative direction in our life. Focusing on the positive little things daily can take us on the right path.

Regrets

We all have regrets in our life. What we want to do is start living a life that has no regrets from this point forward. We don't want to have regrets about our health when we get older. We can do things now to avoid the regrets of disease and illness.

Personal Power

We are in control of our lives. At least we are in control of how we respond to what happens in our lives. Our health and all the other aspects of our life can be taken charge of. Become the director of your life and get fit and healthy now.
