I smile every time I think about going to the gym after work. I don't get down and think, "Man, I HAVE to go to the gym...". I smile and think to myself, "Man! I GET to go the gym today! Woot! (little fit pump of success ).

Stress can cause us to want to give up, especially when it's caused by things going wrong. Take a few minutes to ease your stress: listen to music, read, walk, just relax. When you have less stress, it's easier to make good decisions.
be self-assertive and fight for the right to take care of yourself
Find a special goal that will help to make your life more enriched. And then work towards it two or three times a week - even for just a few minutes each if that is all the time you have. Examples: Learn a language, learn to crochet, learn to play a musical instrument. Build rich diverse skills.
Make "YOU" the priority for the week. Before you make any commitments schedule "YOU" time - whether its exercise, meditation or journaling - give yourself the time to do the things you need to be successful for your goal. Then fit in the other stuff as best as you can.
