TAKE NOTES.

Have a journal and write what your goal is. If you want to lose weight, what you are aiming for. What did you do today? What stressed you out and what can you do to make yourself feel better. Who helped you at work today? Is there someone you can talk to about what is bothering you?

WEEKLY: AIM for at least 30 minutes a day of PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, 3-5 times a week. If you can do more than 30 minutes it is even better! PHYSICAL ACTIVITY may include: Walking, Jogging, Running, Bicycling, Yoga & Meditating, Pilates, Gym Exercises, Strength Training, Basketball, Outdoor Physical Activities, Gardening and Yard work, Swimming, Dancing, anything that involves physical and strength and keeps you moving.. moving and sweating. Something you love and have fun doing!

NEVER MISS MONDAYS! Mondays are usually meant to be work related but we have to think about what helps us get through the day. All day stress, unending call, business meetings, paperwork, travel time and home care we get so consumed and exhaustion brings us down.

If we use MONDAYS to energize ourselves and make this day a reminder to take care of ourselves regularly, we will be able to function more efficiently at work, home and in dealing with anything toward the success of anything in our lives.
