Ever put work second and health first? Sometimes, even if it’s only 10 minutes, we need to put our health first and work second.
Would our boss understand?
A marathon teaching week, on a rare stay-at-home-in-Orlando schedule, but with before-the-sun-comes-up call times. At the last minute, rather than make it four straight days of no running, I ran an easy 10-minute mile.
Why, because it made perfect sense on so many levels – using my best judgement and expertise.
Great intentions to go see The Odd Life of Timothy Green this weekend… it came out in theaters yesterday, August 15…
No, there was no run yesterday even though there was time. Morning chores conflicted. Great intentions. Greater need to work. And so it goes. Relentless. Unstoppable. Figure it out or crumble under the pressure.
How long will you wait before seeing health improvements? Three weeks? Three months? Three years? Ten of the most amazing insights I hope you’ve glean from Lane 8:
1. Resolve to make health a lifetime habit
2. Remember that getting healthy is one thing
3. Staying there is entirely different
4. You have the rest of your life to make slow and steady progress
5. Don’t do too much, too soon
6. Be an example and not a warning
7. Be creative
8. Be forgiving
9. Never quit
10. Have fun
