Today is Labor Day in the good ‘ol US of A … and I like to use this day to reflect on how thankful I am to do all the things I love.
I work with some amazing clients to help them live a happier, healthier life.
I’m fortunate to be in good physical and emotional health, and to be able to do all the things I enjoy without aches and pains stopping me.
Now, don’t get me wrong. That doesn’t mean I’ve got it all figured out. I’m human, and I have good days and bad days just like you.
The key is to make sure the good days outweigh the bad.
To me, Labor Day also marks the symbolic end of summertime and the unofficial start of fall.
The change of seasons is the perfect time to take stock of where you are and set some goals for your health and fitness in the fall.
Whether you’re thinking in 4-, 6- or 8-week increments, I can help you set a goal that’s realistic to achieve in that timespan.
Remember … a goal needs to be specific (i.e., we can measure whether we achieved it or not) and it needs to have a deadline.
But also, remember this: If you set a goal – let’s say, to lose 10 pounds in 8 weeks – and you didn’t achieve it by the deadline you set, it doesn’t mean you failed.
It just means you haven’t arrived at your destination yet.
So … as we shift from Summer to Fall, here’s what I’d like you to do.
Take stock of where you are with your health and happiness.
Set a specific goal with a deadline.
Start taking small actions consistently that will move you closer to your goal.
Start behaving like someone who has already achieved the goal!
What’s something specific and timely you can begin pursuing today, and achieve in the next, say, 4-8 weeks?
Reply back and let me know. I’d love to help you achieve it.
