Making Time For Yourself
I hear it over and over from my online coaching clients:
I'm too busy. I don’t have time to eat right.
I get it.
You’re busy. I'm busy too.
When you’re busy, you need to have a plan to get the important stuff done💡
Because getting into shape won't happen by accident❌
Nobody is going to “give” you time. You have to take that time💯
Create time. Carve it out. Grab it.
Defend it like a berserker once you’ve got it.
Because that time is an appointment with the most important person: YOU✔
How to make time and do your habit
Very first habit I work on with clients is making time. For this habit, “make time” means that you do the following.
Decide how much time, realistically, you can spend on your Coaching lessons and habits today, and every day during these first 2 weeks. Even if it’s only 10 or 15 minutes a day, that’s a great start.
Get a calendar. This can be online (we like Google Calendar), on your smartphone, or plain old paper.
Look at your calendar. What’s coming up for you?
Book time. For each day, set aside an appointment with yourself in advance to read a lesson and do your habit.
Set reminders for that appointment — screen pop-ups, text messages, Post-it notes, singing telegrams... whatever it takes to keep yourself on track and ready to deploy when necessary.
When the time comes (and hopefully your reminders will have warned you in advance), do the thing you promised you’d do.
All I want you to do is book some time every day for your own health and fitness, and get in the habit of sticking to it.
Once you’ve done steps 1 through 5, check off your habit as completed✔
I work on building 26 new habits over the course of a year with all my online clients
