I’ve talked a lot over the last year about multiple different aspects of our health and how to improve it. It’s one thing to read about the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices, but actually doing it is another thing.

I often hear people tell me they want to eat better, start exercising more, or simply just make more time for themselves that is inevitably always followed by some form of an excuse as to why they have not done so.

To those people who constantly are wishing they could make a positive change/improvement in any area of their health be it spiritually, mentally, emotionally or physically, but for some reason just can’t seem to make it happen, the first thing I would consider asking yourself is, how much of a priority is this to you really? I wrote a little bit more on priorities in a previous post that you can read here.

If you would agree that (you fill in the blank) is truly a priority to you, then I would proceed to ask you to show me your schedule throughout the week.

You see, one of the best ways to declare that something is a priority to you, is to put it on your schedule. How we spend our time, whether we want to admit it or not, is a major reflection of what is most important to us.

One never just drifts into becoming a healthier person. This applies to nearly every aspect of our lives. We also don’t just drift into a thriving and satisfying relationship with our spouse, or into a marathon runner overnight.

So, what does your schedule look like? Does the time that you spend throughout your week declare the type of person you want to become? If not, what are some ways you can rearrange your schedule to reflect that more? You may try a new schedule and have to tweak it as you go and that is ok. It may take time to find a new healthy schedule that will support your goals. The point is that you are trying.
