Yesterday I wrote about having a plan. In yesterday’s post I wrote about my planning a Weight Loss Program that I am putting together.
I just got back from a long bike ride around my area. It is an absolutely wonderful morning with the sun shining, very little humidity and not a cloud in the sky.
I really enjoy getting on my bike and going for a ride. Doing this is a part of my plan. My plan to live a healthy, active life. Exercise for me is a daily thing. Whether it be living weights, doing body weight exercise, getting on my bike for a ride, boxing, yoga or reffing I do something 6 days a week. I take 1 day to rest which is also a part of my plan. Getting balance is very important and a challenge.
To get out of doors and enjoy the beauty of the neighborhood. Whether it is a short ride or a long one it is wonderful to be outside, seeing all the beautiful gardens, homes and even the people out on the street for their daily walks is a very enjoyable way for me to get exercise. Yet it hasn’t always been this way. There was a time when I didn’t do any kind of exercise, was overweight, tired, sick and not feeling so good.
Yet today it got me to thinking about planning life. It seems most of us just let life plan us. When I hear most of my friends and colleagues speak about their lives it is from the standpoint of working at their jobs and then at some point in the future retiring and doing what it is they really enjoy.
It got me thinking about planning and how important it is yet so little is done about it. When it comes to health, weight reduction in today’s world it is even more important to plan. Now for some when I discuss planning it becomes this heavy thing that we are not supposed to discuss. For some it is just too much, yet when I think about planning my life and how I want to live it I find it rather exciting. I think about what I want and not what I don’t want. I have been told that the mind doesn’t understand the concept of don’t want and so it messes with the plans. For example if someone were to say “I don’t want to smoke” the mind would understand “I want to smoke” so the reason to plan your wants.
Today it got me to wonder if so many people today are challenged with health and weight problems because they don’t plan. Are we so stressed out as a society that we don’t take the time to think about life and what we want from it? I don’t believe anyone wants to be overweight, suffering from low energy, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and any of the other many illnesses that people suffer from today. Yet it is happening.
So how do we turn this around? How do we begin to plan our lives so we can feel better, look better, and have more energy and more fun in life? Is the first step to ask ourselves “What do I want?” Is that a scary question? Is that the reason we don’t do it? What if the answer is very different from the life we are now living? What do we do then? Then we start.
It all starts with a decision. So are you ready to ask the question? What do you want from your life?
