I’ll admit it, I’m not the most organized person but this has been something I’ve been working on for the past year. It was my new years resolution to utilize my agenda more and write things down. My husband on the other hand is extremely organized and has helped me work on those challenges. What does this take? It takes discipline and repetition. I used to take for granted the fact I could remember everything and not write things down, BUT when you are only taking care of yourself and have a billion less responsibilities it is much easier. Now that I am a business owner and mom I have to write things down or my stress level is through the roof!
Throughout my career as a personal trainer I’ve noticed my clients who are more organized are those that are more successful with their fitness regimen. Exercise is usually the thing that gets put on the back burner when situations arise. We all have tons of things to do, but if we can organize our time properly we can fit exercise in and have plenty of time to finish our other tasks.
Life is all about balance and to achieve balance organization is a must especially for busy people. So if you are trying to get your fitness finally on track, take a look at your daily organizational skills and break out that agenda. This may be the key to your success in establishing a less stressful lifestyle.
