The holidays are here, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but it’s also a season of excuses. It’s never difficult to make excuses for why you can’t do something, but add in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and we can make an excuse for everything. But, what does that get you in the long run? Disappointment, anger, sadness, embarrassment… The thing about excuses is they don’t get you anywhere. So, let’s keep moving forward this holiday season. Get a head start on your new years resolution and stop making excuses.
- No one has time, you have to make time. If it is important to you, you will make time. A 30 minute workout is about 2% of your day. Make it happen.
- Are you interested in being healthy or committed to being healthy. There is a big difference. If you are interested, you will do it when it’s convenient. If you are committed, you will accept no excuses.
- You have two options, you can make progress or make excuses. You are in control of your life, no one can do this for you. Sometimes it’s about calling yourself out on your excuses, you can do it!
- Think about more than just the moment you’re in. Do you want long term joy, or immediate joy? The donut is only good while your eating it. You body looking and feeling they way you want it, is long term joy. You health is long term joy.
So, stop make excuses. Live the life you want this holiday season. Use your time for the things that are important to you, friends, family, health, whatever that looks like for you.
It’s time to take action. No excuses November!
