We all lead busy lives filled with unique challenges and opportunities that can sometimes feel very overwhelming…..so overwhelming that often we forget about taking care of ourselves. As a woman playing multiple roles I know how easy it is to fall into that cycle – “I’ll work on myself tomorrow”, “I just don’t find the time”or “I’m too exhausted by the end of the day”. However, fast forward a few years when your neglected body slams the brakes on you and says “Whoa! no way…no more”. What then?
Good nutrition and physical activity are vital for a healthy mind and body. Still, we have a growing population suffering from increasing rates of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and the list goes on. So, why then if people are aware of the link between nutrition, excercise and vitality is our society facing such a health crisis? A couple of reasons:
1. Don’t know where to start. Too much information on what to do and how to do it that you don’t know how to process it and implement it in your daily life.
2. Lack of a strong support system. Maybe the people who matter the most don’t share in the goals you want to achieve or the lifestyle changes you want to make.
3. Lack of accountability. This ties in strongly with the support system. Relationships that nuture and encourage growth are essential to bring out the best in an individual. No man is an island!
4. Fear of failure. Missed out on a day’s workout? Ate a plate full of brownies in one sitting? We tend to look at these as failure on our part -“I’m never going to get this right”. I say, so what? We all slip up (even the pros do, trust me)…it’s what makes us human. What distinguishes two individuals who’ve slipped up is who is willing to clean the slate and give it another shot. Like everything else, attaining good health takes practice.
