What will it take to make change?

Change.  What does that mean to you?  To me it means improving on who I am.  It means growing as a human being.  It means getting better at this thing called life.

Why I am writing about change on my Personal Training & Wellness website?  Isn’t change the goal when we decide to begin an exercise program?  Isn’t change the goal when we decide to reduce our weight?  Isn’t change the goal when we decide to eat Organically grown food?  Isn’t change the goal when we decide to quit smoking, eating junk food?

Change: “Make or become different”.

A friend recently told me that when it comes to exercise, changing some of the not so good habits she has there is no incentive to change.  She knows she is not doing enough when it comes to exercise and diet yet it is not important to her.  I totally got it!  She is a very smart gal, has a great job, works a lot, plays golf, goes to the cottage, has a life.  She might not feel a 100% however her family history is long, with no real serious health issues and she has no real reason to make any changes  because of that.

I was told once that for most of us to change our health we must be sitting on the cliff with 2 wheels already over and the car teetering!  This is when we begin to pray and ask for help to make the changes necessary for a good, long healthy life.  Why must it get to that point?

So my question is what will it take to make change?  What will you do to improve your thoughts?  What will you do to move more?  What will you do to eat less food that does not fuel your body in the best way?  What will you do to drink more water?  What will you do to get better sleep?  What will you do to bring more joy & laughter into your life?

Today I am adding meditation to my wellness plan.  It is a challenge however calming the mind, calms the body and if I can do that it is a good thing.  20 minutes a day.  I have 20 minutes and can do that.

Just a thought!  Wendy
