Reserving time for fitness always seems so much easier on long weekends (and on vacations). At the beginning of any holiday period, I am always eager to fill my calendar with fun things as well as all of the unfinished projects that I’ve been working on.
Of course, long weekends go quickly and, though I’m successful at fitting in fitness time, many of those unfinished projects remain incomplete.
I’m one who reprioritizes in the moment, which is great for some things…and a hindrance for others.
Do you do this, too? And where does fitness fall on your to-do list?
If you are optimistic — rather than realistic — about what you can accomplish while on holiday, what gets done and what still remains on the list of pending items?
Do you reprioritize to add exercise to your schedule? Or do you change your schedule and remove exercise as you run out of time?
Since exercise isn’t something that you can delegate or skip (at least not if you want to reap the benefits), fitting fitness into your life comes down to you.
Observing your tendency to add or remove exercise, especially when you feel like you are in a time crunch, can give you some insight into whether you are enjoying your fitness routine or whether changing your fitness habits might be beneficial.
Consider thinking about fitness as one of the many puzzle pieces that fit together to create the happiest and healthiest version of yourself.
Finding a fitness routine that works for you will take you one step closer to completing your puzzle, and, as with other aspects of your life, you can design this particular piece however you wish.
