If you are reading this you have it. You can waste it or use it. But once it is gone you can't get it back. What is it?
One of the excuses I hear consistently from clients and loved ones is “I don’t have time.” That couldn’t be further from the truth. Whether it’s not having time to eat breakfast, not having time workout, not having time to pack meals, or not having time to sleep, I have heard them all. But the reality is we do have time, and what we choose to do with our time is our choice. There maybe the occasional crisis that comes up that challenges they way we use our time, but all in all, we have time.
The average American, as of 2007, spends over four hours a day watching TV! That is just TV1, not even counting the time spent surfing the Internet!
The reality of it is, we chose what we do with our time deliberately based on our priorities and values. So what are your values? Priorities? Now, take a minute, and think about your time. What have you chosen to do today with it? Have you used any of it for your health? Whether it is 30 minutes for a workout, 30 minutes to prepare healthy meals, or 30 minutes restoring balance, time is your best friend when it comes to your health.
Although my schedule gets a little crazy from day to day between clients, teaching classes, writing my thesis, going to class, and getting in office hours, I still choose to spend time everyday for myself and my health. It isn't always easy, but for me, it's a value and priority I hold high. I have learned that ultimately, I choose how to spend my time, and you have the same awesome ability!
There are 24 hours or 1,440 minutes today. I am willing to say you can spare at least 30 out of 1,440 for your health. What will you choose?
Let me know what you will do TODAY! (By the way, that's the answer.)
