Life

habits

Life happens, and everyday is not a carbon copy of the last.   I’ve owned a fitness studio for over 9 years now and seen all kinds of people come and go.  There are some that are here everyday no matter what and others that sprinkle in every once in a while.  With those that are the most consistent, what is it that keeps them coming everyday?  Do they have less going on in their lives?  Absolutely not!  Now don’t get me wrong, tragedies happen which cause our lives to come to a halt and things get put on the back burner for a minute or two.  Those that are the most consistent make fitness a part of who they are.  These people have fitness as a habit so it gets worked into what ever they have going on.  Work, family, friends, and relationships all have an effect on our schedules EVERYDAY.  It’s up to you how you let it affect your routine.  Are you going to stop brushing your teeth because your child is sick?  I would venture to say that’s a no.  Why?  Because your teeth are important and you wouldn’t even think about skipping it because it is a habit.  What other habits do you have that won’t quit in times of uncertainty?  That answer is totally up to you.  Write out your priorities today and view them (and do them) on a regular basis until they become a part of who you are.  That’s when you will become one of those people who never quits.
