Managing life’s merry-go-round

Print Article

Are your clothes tighter than they have ever been? Do you have jeans that havenít seen the light of day for several months, maybe even years?

We all try to maintain that healthy physique and for some reason, we allow obstacles to negatively creep into our life. Between the existing work week, shuffling kids around, laundry, grocery store and basically just trying to keep up with everything, we often lose sense of where our priorities should lie.

It is mandatory that you put yourself on that lengthy list of priorities, somewhere preferably near the top of the list. If you donít do this, you will wake up one day wondering where the years have gone, asking yourself, ďHow could I let myself go?Ē Little Johnny is graduating already, seems like yesterday he was in diapers.

You have got to start taking control of your health and your life. Why in the world would you continue to wait any longer? What are you waiting for? Do you even know the answer?

I am a parent, just like the rest of you. I understand the time constraints, outside commitments, sports schedules, grocery store trips and the laundry pile that never seems to diminish.

Everyone has a list of things that need to be accomplished that is a mile long that never truly is completely finished before you need to add, yet another, thing to do. The merry-go-round of taking care of everyone and everything else but yourself and your health is constantly moving.

Guess what? The option to manage that merrygo-round is completely in YOUR control. Do something positive for you. Follow through with this yearís resolution. If you find it challenging to get and stay motivated to incorporate exercise in your daily, yes, daily routine, then find someone who you can buddy up with to help you stay motivated. Find the support system that will work for you and enjoy your results!
