Take Five

Perform the following each morning upon rising and again in the evening before you lay your head down:

• Take two minutes to reflect and set your priorities and goals for the day.

• Take two minutes to schedule it–in your outlook, planner, or whatever you used to track your daily appointments. The most important step is writing it down and scheduling.

• Take one minute to affirm it by stating your priorities and goals out loud.

With the October rush getting back into fitness can be the hardest part of establishing your routine. It’s common for those who have not experienced the benefits of fitness in their life on a consistent basis, to not prioritize their fitness, exercise or workouts first. In many cases, people plan everything else first in their day, not taking any time for themselves. They will then attempt to squeeze a workout in at the end when everything else is complete and they are mentally and physically drained and don’t find themselves successful in their efforts.

When you prioritize your exercise first and schedule it like an appointment, you are more likely to succeed. For a lot of people, working out first thing in the morning, or even mid-day, versus the end of the day, provides them with more energy, stamina, strength, mental endurance, quicker problem-solving abilities, more patience and presence and an overall sense of happiness!

Regardless of what time you exercise, you will find you perform better, make better choices and decisions and are a better version of yourself at work. You’ll discover you can manage anxiety and stress better. You will sleep better, look better and feel better. By fitting some time into your day for yourself and fitness, you become your best self, which is what we should all strive for.
