Here are my personal “future-focused action steps” that YOU can use to create big health and fitness returns in your own future.
I know we are all out there hustling every day, building our careers and families, and lives. We’re busy living for today!
The future can seem far away.
But the truth is, the future is so much closer than you think!
Here’s something to think about: The future is literally the sun coming over the horizon every morning! Every day gives you a new opportunity to make your future bigger and brighter.
What you choose to do today can have a huge impact on tomorrow. And these choices don’t have to be big or painful.
→ This week I’m challenging you to identify and commit to taking THREE FUTURE-FOCUSED ACTIONS.
These are things you can do two or three days a week that will propel you to greater success - not just for TODAY - but over the long term.
I am not talking about huge, life-changing measures here.
Rather, think in terms of small actions that pack a big punch!
Let me show you what I mean.
Stress is an unfortunate reality for most of us - and is pretty much unavoidable these days.
BUT, how we choose to deal with it can make a huge difference in how we feel now AND how it affects me over the long term.
Taking healthy steps to manage stress will help to fill up your “personal retirement bank” in the future.
So here’s a three-step action plan you can use, but you can always build yours based on what YOU need in your own life.)
FIRST, Go for a short, leisurely walk three times a week. Add it to your calendar or schedule. Not a long walk--I’m talking 30 minutes, max. And not a fitness-focused walk, either! Don't focus on fitness but instead just to BREATHE, clear your mind, and let go of any stress.
SECOND, Make it a point for these walks to take place OUTSIDE. That’s because experts tell us that NATURE has tons of stress-reduction benefits. Studies show that spending time outdoors can reduce inflammation, improve mental well-being, and even help us to sleep better!
Plus, being outside means getting some natural vitamin D from the sun. This is great for you in small doses! Vitamin D can even boost your immune system, which definitely plays a role in how your body responds to stress.
FINALLY, maybe forego your usual podcasts, audiobooks, or music and instead listen to the sounds of nature! The sounds of wind blowing through the trees, birds chirping, or the crackling of leaves can help you release tension.
It sounds simple … because it IS. But these small walk breaks make all of the difference and will pay off now -- and in the future!
What three actions will YOU commit to today for a brighter tomorrow? What are three simple things you can integrate into your life to make it even better?
