It’s amazing how so many people are keen to improve their career, finances or relationships but place very little importance on their health. You can’t expect to have razor-sharp focus and the energy levels required to succeed in life if you don’t spend time looking after the things that make you tick…
Without good health you simply don’t function properly. Back when we were teenagers energy and enthusiasm often just ‘seemed to happen’ but as we get older we generally need a plan in place to make sure our health doesn’t fall by the wayside thanks to procrastination and excuses!
As Gretchen Hodgkiss from Fit Space points out “If you have the time to come up with excuses, you have the time to exercise. By taking 30 minutes out of your work day you add over an hour of productive work time”
So how would you rate your overall level of fitness right now? (1-10, with 10 being fabulous). Ask yourself: –
As an NLP Practitioner I’m acutely aware that it’s not just what we do, but the thoughts and feelings we associate to that task that ultimately impact the results we get. For example, if I say “running” some of you might think “fun, energetic, rewarding” whereas others might think “hard work, painful, sweaty”. If I were to say to you “healthy lifestyle” you might think “vibrant, refreshing, responsible” whereas others would think “boring, no run, restrictive”.
Look back now at your answers regarding your current level of fitness – did you feel good or bad about it? If you felt bad, how would you feel about recharging your health? Are you saying to yourself “oh my god, it’s going to be hard” or “bring it on”? If the prospect of moving up a gear turns you off it’s time to ask yourself what you need to think in order to change that limiting belief. 80% of success is in your mind so it’s important to think about your mental – as well as physical – health.
