How To Break Hard To Break Health Habits

For me, being a role model and walking the talk is extremely motivating.

How do you break hard to break health habits? First rule, don’t look for a cookie cutter solution. This is a myth. Look at all the diets that have ever been created. None of them have sustainability. None.

Insight: You want easy answers to life’s biggest challenges? Get real with yourself. And get rid of habitual codependence with excuses.

Sacrifice Is Required


Sacrifice is required. And so is patience. You already know this. And you also know how difficult, and some would even say impossible, these are.

Yet we must, over time, develop the good habits that let us have a positive outlook, in spite of the setbacks and missed opportunities. It is our only hope for hope.

Four days ago, I had to pass on the Florida State Masters Track & Field Championships. It’s a 30-minute drive., and my “home track”.  But I’ve spent years with chronic foot pain and am not ready to compete again.

Don’t Complicate Things

One of the secrets I’ve learned is that it’s better to simply get started and do, rather than worry and wait.

Yeah, at risk with a business card as “unprofessional” as this is that people won’t take you seriously.

However, what’s also at risk with some really slick, professional business cards is they will also get neglected, not because they aren’t professional, but rather because they’re boring.

Many people think if they do things a certain way, then everything else will fall into place.

Maybe. If you work for an established organization.

And maybe if all the critical tools and resources – marketing, legal, human resources, community relations, public relations, media relations, finance, advertising, hiring, organizational structure, vision, mission, brand, etc – have long been established.

Maybe, but, if you’ve ever dreamed of being an entrepreneur, you are in for a rude awakening.

Same goes for health.

Here’s to hoping your phone never rings in 2010 with this, “Honey, it’s for you. It’s your wake-up call.”

Did the Pilgrims Exercise?

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

This made me laugh when the thought came to mind, “Did the Pilgrims exercise?”

Next thought was, “Who cares, right?”

And then, “Their whole life was exercise.”

And finally, “How selfish is it to live a life of ease?”

Ya with me?

Yes, staying with a healthy routine is hard.  It’s difficult.  Don’t let anyone try to tell you otherwise.

I mean, even if you are highly motivated, eventually, you will find it easier to not keep your routine.

Look at professional athletes, or even Olympic Gold Medalists.  Are they the picture of health and wellness ten years later?

Hey, thanks for visiting, gotta go for now.  Exercise is calling my name.  It would be much easier to ignore the call, but ultimately, life is hard. Do it. Now!  Carpe diem.
