Man, what a topic. This is a blog that could go on for a long time but I want to keep it short and to the point.
I have spent a lot of time in my life blaming other people and circumstances for my lack of happiness or my lack of health....have you?
I would say the practice is too busy for me to workout consistently. I don't have time to food prep because Zoey requires all my attention when I am home. I don't have time to wake up and do a morning ritual to keep my mental game strong..I honestly believed the things I was telling myself.
Until I did a life audit about a year ago.
A life audit is an honest look at all the important areas of your life. What's really happening and what's not.
I logged my time to see if I really was as busy as I thought I was. What I found was that I was watching over 4 hours of netflix a week and spending over an hour a day on my phone. Crap. So that's 11 hours of precious time every single week that was being allocated to things that I could care less about...
We live in a day and age where most of us are addicted to distraction. Yet we don't even know it. I bet if you actually did a life audit you would be mind blown at how much time, energy, and money goes into things you don't care about too.
But what's the real gift in this exercise? HONESTY.
You get an honest look at reality. Are you living your life the way you say you want to? Are you truly investing your time, energy, and money into things you value?
Or are you grinding through every day escaping on your phone, Facebook, instragram, and Netflix. If that's what you care about and you are happy then that's awesome. Keep doing what your doing. But if it's not...then you have a tough decision to make.
The way I see it is you can either:
1) Take this information and use it.. get rid of the garbage and the excuses and start taking action. ANY action - we aren't talking about perfection.
2) Take this information and abuse it...keep living the same patterns and getting the same results.
So many folks (myself included for a long time) are waiting for the right time or the right circumstances to start living the life they want to. I see this everyday... ESPECIALLY when it comes to health.
But in my experience that time never comes... because it's already here.
No one else can determine how you live your life but you.
You deserve awesome health and fulfillment in life. Go get it.
Do a life audit this week. Start on any day... track your life for a whole week and log everything that you do....When you are all done sit down by yourself in a quiet area for a good chunk of time and review your results.
How do they make you feel? Are you happy or disappointed? Once you have this starting point you can take new action to get a more desirable result.
As always...if you need any help or guidance message us. We are always happy to help in any way we can, and if we aren't the right people to help you we will find you someone else who can.
