“A woman too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his/her tools.” – A Spanish Proverb
I hear it all the time from my client S. Every workout she has some new health issue, when I ask her what is she doing about it she says I’m too busy. Seriously, you are too busy to take care of your own health. If you don’t have your health you have nothing. To help her bring this to her attention, I mention that if she had a headache, she would take an aspirin and if she had a stuffy nose she would take a decongestant. Now. Why when you have elevated blood pressure and your doctor tells you are at an increased risk for heart disease, why wouldn’t do whatever you go could to decrease your blood pressure and increase the longevity of your life not only for yourself, but your family. Honestly, if you don’t care of yourself how are you going to take care of others.
Now ask yourself, what things are you currently doing that you could find 1 hour to devote to your health and fitness? Could you get up 1 hour earlier, sneak out of the office at lunch, maybe givewatching Lost or 24 and take that time to workout?
Talk to me give me some of your suggestions.
