Do you have a bucket list? I haven’t really ever thought about it, mostly living day to day, week by week, month by month (and yes for me, year by year). This year however is a big one. I have a big birthday! A joyous anniversary, a new job (vocation) and limitless opportunities. The key word here is ‘opportunities’. How many times in the past have I allowed opportunities to pass me by? Simply moving in the groove and routine?
To live our dreams we need to be agile and well. For your body to move with the fluidity and functionality to achieve your dreams (or bucket list) you need to move regularly, stretch frequently, challenge and improve your stamina and strength. You need to be healthy in body and mind.
How to do this? There is no magic wand, you will need to take control and make changes to include some healthy lifestyle choices. You will need to introduce some activities to help you do this. Now is the time, not next week, month or year. With today’s technology you have the resources to research and find a solution for yourself. Type anything you want to achieve, or are interested in, into a search engine and the answer will spring before your eyes. Look for a Personal Trainer, Boot Camps, or local Yoga, Pilates or dance fit classes. The information is there for you. Speak with your friends, join them in their activities or invite them to join you. Buddy up, this has proven to work.
Now you have researched your ideas make them happen, take out your year planner (yes, I said year planner) not just one week or month and bench mark the whole year. Mark out a plan of action, factor in holidays and projects which may interrupt your schedule (consider alternatives during that time) and then commit to resume activities on the original or enhanced plan once the holiday or project is over. If you are struggling with barriers, read my November blog A New You Resolution.
Finally back to your bucket list, dreams and aspirations. Put a spring into 2015 and make it happen.
