Recently I read a great post written by Jess Ainscough AKA The Wellness Warrior and it got me thinking about myself, my life. I need to make ever lasting change if I want longevity. Especially after my breast cancer diagnosis. Nothing in life ever worth having came easy, and nor will this but I know in my heart of hearts nothing’s impossible just as long as I don’t give up.
There’s always room for change in our lives, especially positive. So some of the things I’ll be working towards changing are:
1. Finding My Life Balance
I’ve always been about my career because anyone that knows me knows how much I love my Air Force. But things are different now because they have to be. For me it’s all about finding that balance. I have to ensure I do the things I need to do to look after myself and then and only then can I indulge in the things I want to do. Easier said than done I know, but it’s totally necessary as far as my health’s concerned.
2. Make Ever Lasting Change
I know what it is I need to do, so now I just have to do it. For me it’s about breaking old habits and creating new habits. There’s a number of different areas that need improving so it’s not an overnight change by any means. This is a work-in-progress type of everlasting change and one I’m going to get professional help with, starting today.
3. iFree Weekends
My family is important to me and I want to be there for my husband like he has been for me these past seventeen years. So to do that, I’ve decided that once he comes home from work at the end of the week I’m dedicating my time to him and us. What does that mean, it means my new iFree Weekends. In other words not using my iPhone, iPad & iMac other than to make or take necessary phone calls, messages or photos. I know this one will be by far the most challenging change but a worthwhile one once I break the old habit. Plus the time away from technology will also do my health the world of good.
So to make ever lasting change we all have to start somewhere, and I start today.
