Turning ''Someday'' into Today

Weighing Some Tough Options


You can build the path that you want to walk on, and decide which steps to take. It’s important to you—to your health, your goals and your family—that you take some time to exercise and plan healthy meals. You should treat it that way and give yourself permission to take that time without feeling guilty. The irony is that by being healthy and taking time from your schedule, you’ll be able to take care of more of that "other" stuff in the long run.

Besides, is anything on your to-do list really more important than your health? When it comes down to it, those choices may not be so tough after all.

  • 2016 became the year for Me. I have been exercising for 8 months now and I love it. It's finally become part of my life, and not just when it's convenient. - 8/27/2015 6:39:46 PM
  • I struggle with balance...I do make time for ME but I am still pushed to the max, exhausted and behind on things that need to be done. Things fall to the right no, there is no food to cook in this house. I try to cut back on things but it seems like it just keeps getting worse. I need like a month off work to catch up! - 9/1/2013 12:29:29 PM

  • This is an outstanding reminder that we have to put ourselves on our OWN priority lists. I have saved and shared this and will re-read again when I need a reminder. - 4/3/2013 9:54:22 AM
  • Nicely worded article; thank you! It's in true spirit with one of my own motivational phrases from the day I decided to change my life;
    "Most things can wait until tomorrow, but there are some things need to be done today".
    It's so true that the "tomorrow" may never come for some tasks and we need to remind ourselves what is really important. - 1/31/2013 6:20:02 PM

  • I have always put everybody's before mine. I never had time for Carol.I decided it was my time joined sp. I now include myself and my needs also, taking it one day at a time. My health is more important then running one of my g-kids to the mall. - 9/9/2012 10:39:08 AM
