As I usually do after the holidays, I regroup and attempt to eat well and exercise. Gosh, sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Many of us recommit to health as a New Year’s resolution.
This year, I turn 50! At the half century mark, it’s time to take my health seriously. We always hear that it’s in our 40’s and 50’s that our health starts to decline, leading to chronic illnesses and other diseases in our 60’s and 70’s.
I don’t know about you, but I want to be vibrant and energetic, even when I am 80 years old!
We don’t have many role models to turn to for guidance at being healthy in old age, but that doesn’t mean it is impossible. Although rare, there ARE people in their 70’s and beyond who are active and healthy, and don’t require meds or walkers to live on a daily basis. So, if they can do it, why can’t I?
I want this year to be THE YEAR that I stick to the one commitment that counts the most.
I commit to My Health But, how?
Step 1: Make the commitment. Ok, I’ve got that part covered.
Step 2: Decide what actions I will take to make the commitment happen.
Hmm…step 2. There are a lot of different ways I could approach this, but since it is a brand new year, I will start with my Year-Long Goals Sheet. I have a lot to say about this valuable tool, so I’m going to put it in a separate post. Right away!
