Are You Ready To Make A C.O.M.M.I.T.M.E.N.T.?

Another year is coming to a close. It’s a great time to reflect on all you’ve accomplished over the past 12 months and to determine what you’d like to accomplish over the next year. Many people approach the start of each New Year with resolutions to make their lives better by improving their health. People will start a new diet or exercise routine only to allow their new-found healthy habits fall by the wayside within mere days or weeks. We’ve all be the victim of resolutions gone astray. Life gets busy once the New Year picks up and you forget to make time for yourself, yet again. Sound familiar?

10,000 steps a day…let the Fitbit be your guide!

Every day we have the opportunity to move our bodies purposefully, with the intent to exercise. Often it is thought that the ideal is to exercise at least 5 days each week for no less than 30 minutes, but this doesn’t always happen as planned. Our lives are hectic and crazy, with unplanned ups and downs that pull us out of our planned routine and away from our workouts on what seems like a regular basis. With this in mind, it’s important to always have a backup plan to keep yourself as active as possible. I often find myself encouraging the people I meet to simply look for ways to move more. For years I have been encouraging people to wear a pedometer and track their steps each and every day. Fortunately I’m not the only one who feels that moving more each day is beneficial.

The idea of using a pedometer is not a new one. The “10,000 steps per day” slogan has been around for decades and continues to be tossed around as a measure to improve physical activity among adults. The theory of 10,000 steps per day began as a goal for Japanese citizens in the 1960’s and has morphed into an ideal goal for movement each day around the world.1

The Power of Positivity

The human body is simply an amazing thing, allowing us to run marathons, lift weights, and compete in events people are still dreaming up each year, but without the right frame of mind, the power of the body is all for naught. Our mind is responsible for our attitude, and our attitude often determines how our days will progress. Attitude is often defined as “an expression of favor or disfavor toward a person, place, thing, or event.” This week I would challenge you to put a high priority on your attitude and spend time learning just how impactful it can be!
