Every year we all hear the same things. “I’m going to start going to the gym more.” “I’m going to quit smoking.” “I’m going to manage my finances better.”
Those are all GREAT things! You absolutely should create goals, and start taking steps to reach them. But why wait until the New Year? I promise I’m not being a hypocrite- this is actually something I believe in! Like in 2015 when I made the decision to eat healthier even through the holidays, continuing on after.
There’s no better time to make a change than right now. It doesn’t have to be a new year, or a Monday, or even first thing in the morning. This moment, the very moment that you’re living in is a perfect time to start making changes.
The problem with waiting until a certain date on the calendar is the adoption of the “last meal” mentality. It’s smoking the rest of the pack, gorging on all the food you’ll miss, insane spending. Why start the New Year in the negative? It makes the change even harder, and it’s easier to feel like your goals are unattainable and quit sooner.
Today is a great day to make a change. Even if you’ve eaten an unhealthy breakfast, or had a cigarette. You can stop. Right now, right this second. YOU can make the decision that enough is enough.. And trust me, your body has no idea what day it is on the calendar.
Combine mindfulness and your goals, and you’re on the road to success! Just know, I’m rooting for you. We all are.
With healthy hearts,
Kate and the Kids.
