Many of us are full of the nos, or I cant. I can’t exercise, I can’t eat good food, I can’t get sleep. We begin to put our energy into our rationalizations and believe that our life is constructed in a way that we can’t take care of ourselves.
Next time you find yourself engaging in the I can’t, take time to reframe it into I can.
For example, you usually work out in the morning, and this morning you have to be out the door by 5:30 to get your kid to a special school rehearsal. Rather than saying, “I can’t exercise,” say, “I will park further away on my errands today, and walk an extra 3 minutes 3x today, and when I get home, I will do sit-ups during the show I am going to watch.”
Build a strong foundation of health beneath you. From the water you drink to the air you breathe, to the way you talk to yourself, all of these areas are the things that matter the most to overall wellness. The most powerful health tools are the ones that don’t cost you a thing. From exercise to quality sleep, the data is outstanding for disease prevention and the creation of a better you.
