When You Feel Like Quitting, Remember Why You Started!
We all want to accomplish so much but it can feel like there are not enough hours in a day. What ends up happening is we forget what is a priority. Therefore, we have a hard time staying on track. If that happens to you, it helps to have a mentor or coach who can guide you through those times. A good friend that you can talk to will help just as much. Remember to surround yourself with people who want what’s best for you, as you do for others.
For those who have a family and kids in their life, the priority factor for them is obvious. Your family is, of course, your #1 priority. However, you need to remember that you are just as much as a priority as they are. Without your well-being and you feeling at your best, you will not be able to take care of them.
With that being said, life gets in the way and we often forget to eat properly or exercise. We end up ignoring what our bodies are telling us just to get through the day that lies ahead. You end up getting so hungry and tired, that you eat whatever you can get your hands on and go to bed without thinking of the consequences. You say to yourself that you will go for a run in the morning but then, the day gets too busy.
Try to stop a few times a day and take a deep breath, reflect on how you feel and what could you do for yourself to be your best self. Maybe it’s a motivational podcast, some music, sitting down to eat something healthy, or calling a good friend to check in. It is okay to make yourself a priority. Your body and mental health will thank you for it!
We cannot solve problems with the kind of thinking we employed when we came up with them.” — Albert Einstein
