Physical Vitality                                                                                 July 2008

running girl When it comes to eating properly and exercising regularly, many of us fall short. I don't know about you, but I am a master at making excuses…


I'll start on Monday…I'm a 'deer in headlights' in the kitchen…I'm too busy and I don't have time...I'll get back to the gym after this conference, after that project is over, after I finish X, whatever.


Does any of that sound familiar?


I have spent much of the past six months either in an office or in an airplane en route somewhere, as I've been working full-time during the week and criss-crossing the country for speaking engagements on the weekends. While I can honestly say that I live an inspired life with a great deal of joy and fulfillment, I have been operating on rapidly-depleting energy reserves and have not been taking care of my body.


While it's a convenient and somehow socially acceptable excuse to say I've been too busy to exercise or eat properly because I'm constantly on the road, the bottom line is I haven't made my health a big enough priority. That no longer works. The cost is too high.


Shawn Phillips quote

Ain't that the truth?! Amen. How are you taking care of your body? Are you giving it the fuel it needs to perform at your best?


With the ever-increasing demands of the workplace and the myriad of responsibilities and commitments we each have, how do we make it work and fit it all in? I have struggled with this question for a long while and don't have an easy answer. But what I do know is that I'm sick of making excuses and it's time to get into action. Where health is concerned, NOW is the time!


I close with the words of a wise sage from Star Wars:


Yoda quote

Cheers to your vitality and you living your best life! I'm on the journey with you!


With Great Optimism,
