You get up in the morning and your closet is a mess…so you are a bit tardy in getting ready. Oh well no time for breakfast, you just rush out the door to go to work or school.
Around 10:30 a.m. you’re starving so you get something quick…high probably that it’s not going to be a healthy choice since it’s something quick and you want food! So you go for the cereal bar, energy bar…which if you take a moment and read the label…not so good for you.
Your desk is messy and papers are all over…need to make the meetings, take the test at school and so forth…so a healthy lunch is right out the door. You grab what you can or better yet go home famished and eat the whole fridge! Later on you think, “why bother, I messed up the whole day" and then you sit in front of the TV and eat the bag of chips or ice cream. You think, “I’ll start tomorrow” but as we know, tomorrow is the same thing.
Today I invite you to skip one TV show or a game or two of candy crush or an hour of Facebook, Instagram…and clean the closet, make your bed, throw out old files, clean out the fridge (do you really need some of the things that are in there?), sort through that drawer or go through the mail that is piling up…hey you don’t need to do it all at once, give yourself a goal date and just take a little time every day to tackle one or two things. It will get done and along the way you will find a healthier you!
