Get into a routine
You work 40- 50 hours a week, have a family with kids involved in extracurriculars, and try to maintain a hobby on the side. We get it, you’re busy! If you have a deep enough “why”, you will be willing to make some adjustments to your routine. Have you considered waking up earlier to work out? You’ll be surprised by how many do this everyday. What about spending a few hours once a week meal prepping so you can eat healthy all week?
There are ways to adapt your lifestyle so you can reach your goals; all it takes is some smart planning. Once you make those adaptations and get into a routine, you’ll find that things will simply fall into place.
If you think you need to make a huge change immediately to see results, you will be happy to know that small tweaks can make a huge impact due to the compound effect! For starters, try drinking more water throughout the day, or simply adding more reps in your workout. There are limitless opportunities to make changes throughout your day, just stay in the moment and be willing to go the extra mile.
Sometimes, it is darkest just before dawn. When things seem bad, it is likely because life is about to get better. Stay positive! This will give you the momentum you need to charge forward through the difficult times and really appreciate the good times.
It is said that if you do what is always done, then you will get what you have always gotten. By staying positive, making small changes and getting into a routine, you will see that your results are not as far off as you may have once thought.
