Keeping The Most Important Appointment with Yourself

Time has a way of getting away from us. Too much work, too many commitments, too many outside distractions. Problem is when time is tight we often forget to keep the most important appointments with ourselves--the ones that involve exercise, eating right, sleeping well and taking good care of our health.

When time is at a premium do whatever is necessary to keep on a healthy track. There are plenty of ways to do it in this modern era. If you're at a computer most of the day, program reminders on your desktop. Use the "remind me" functions on your smart phone or iPad. Or if you use the paper calendar system, put the information there and highlight it with a bright color.

If you feel too tired to exercise or fix a healthy meal, remember how you're going to feel afterward. Exercise and healthy foods give us energy and calm stress levels. The hardest part is starting. For most of us, once we've begun the activity
it's easy to keep going and do more.

Having extra time in your day will always be a tough one. Your life isn't slowing down anytime soon so make sure you commit to the most important appointments--the ones that keep you happy and healthy.
