Because of money issues, we have been going a million miles a minute for a while. It seemed that even giving up sleep was not enough. Times like that don't last forever but if you are going that way for too long, even when you don't really have more than you can handle, you force yourself to be unnecessarily busy because that is the only life you have known for a long time.
"I am too busy right now to go to the gym and eat right. Right now is just to crazy to be worrying about dieting and exercising because [insert excuse here]. I will get back on-track [insert some date in the future that is not TODAY]."Reality:
"Life is busy so I am going to have to limit [insert unimportant activity here] and use that time to focus on my health. I know I am not as busy as I like to think I am and if I don't go to the gym it's not because I don't have time, it is because I have decided that the time I spend on my health is less important than [insert unimportant activity here]. If I am honest with myself there are very few things more important.I have become a hoarder of projects. There is just so much stuff I don't need in my life, it's crowding out what is important. Trying to cram more and more into my life is not helping me get more done, it's just getting me stuck. Time to clean house. Literally, figuratively and schedule...ly.
