We can’t solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.”
Einstein was onto something. What is that one thing you really want to change in your life?
What’s stopping you from changing it?
One thing is for sure – if you keep doing what you’re doing, you’re going to keep getting the same results.
Excuses leads to no where Whether it has been a difficult period in your life, you just became lazy, or the famous, “don’t have the time,” line, your problem is now yours to fix. It starts with putting a stop to the excuses.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day and we all get to choose how to use it. Are you working toward something or just trying to get through the day? Are you nourishing your body or grabbing whatever is fast and convenient when you realize you’re starving?
Are you intentional about how you treat those around you or do you find yourself in reaction mode; easily annoyed, defensive and short?
If you find yourself on the negative end of that spectrum, start by taking better care of your body. Moving, sweating and getting outside have so many positive benefits outside of 6 pack abs.
When you add in exercise regularly, no matter how long or intense, you’ll notice your mood, your stress levels, sleep and even food choices will begin to improve.
