No matter what you like to do, find something active you enjoy and do it consistently. Remember, exercise is anything you enjoy that gets your heart rate and breathing up. Literally anything. So find an activity you enjoy doing and start exercising, your way. Here are some suggestions:
You may recall from our earlier post, that your internal sleep clock is strongly influenced by our exposure to light.
You can let your internal clock know it’s almost time for bed by avoiding bright lights one hour before you plan on sleeping. Try to mimic what’s happening outside. Begin turning off or dimming lights. Avoid bright light that comes from electronic devices (it stimulates your brain, keeping you awake). If you still want to use an electronic device be sure to dim the screen. And remember, the more consistent you are the better. Click HERE for more sleep tips.
Your success in life and health starts with being true to yourself. You do this by making and keeping commitments, first to yourself and then to others. Every day you make commitments or promises to yourself, “I’m going to get up at 7,” “I’m going to walk 15 minutes this morning,” “I’m going to eat a healthy lunch.” And your success is ultimately determined by your ability to make and keep these commitments to yourself.
If you have struggled reaching yours goals, you likely don’t follow through with commitments to yourself and others. Take a minute and write down the commitments you made this past week and whether you followed through or not. Choose today to be different. Choose today to make and keep commitments to yourself and others. Be realistic, start small, and only commit to things you know you will actually do. By doing so you WILL be successful.

No judging: we’re all on the same journey, just at different stages so let’s not tear each other down.
