I’d like you to recall a time you were NOT the driver (metaphorically speaking). Maybe you attended a professional development course or maybe you enjoyed a guided excursion on vacation. I’m guessing you were able to better focus on your experience while someone else took the reins. An expert’s guidance can allow room for learning and enjoying. When we unburden ourselves with the job of navigating and planning – we free up our energy to benefit.
I encourage you to allow someone or something else to be the driver in some of your healthy living. Part of the joy my clients’ experience is in NOT being the driver. They have other responsibilities in our effort to improve their lives but having a plan during workouts is not one of them.
Below are a few suggestions:
- Have a big picture calendar plan (writing tasks out for the next two months helps with eliminating decision making later)
- Take a class – there are several outstanding fitness classes available in Chicagoland. Find one you like, show up and enjoy someone else being in charge.
- TV or Tablet – when you know you should exercise but can’t bring yourself to get on your cardio equipment, throw in a DVD or search your DVR, Tablet or Streaming Netflix for a quick fitness class led by someone else
