Change – It Starts Right Now

Change – It Starts Right Now

Change is a hard for most people. It requires a lot of will and desire to make that change. My business partner said it the best “One of the best days of your life is when you decide you’ve had enough and you decide to change”. Well I agree. Making changes is like making habits. It takes two weeks to start or end a habit.

You must ask yourself these questions and look at your lifestyle. For example, are you?
• Sitting at a desk
• Sitting in a car
• Sitting in front of a TV
• Sitting in front of a computer
• Eating out at restaurants
• Drinking alcohol
• Eating fast food or junk foods
• Staying up late/not getting enough sleep
The best way to get started would be writing down your goals as a checklist. To start making changes you must start out with having a small goal and a big goal. Baby steps are the only way you won’t get burned out so fast. Try these few changes
• Being active in general (taking the stairs, walking instead of driving, standing instead of sitting, etc.)
• Doing cardio exercise, walk on the treadmill or take the dog out for a walk
• Strength training for all muscle groups. Joining a health club and find a weight training class
• Preparing your own meals and snacks and eating fruits, veggies and whole grains

If you can just think of moving for one hour a day, you will start seeing changes in your habits whether they are good or bad. Then you will make changes to how you are moving. You will be surprised on how good you feel and want to continue on your journey to making those goals happen
