The surprising advice I gave my crazy busy client

The other day I met with a client who was SO frustrated because it felt like everything in her life was working against her goals.

She has a demanding job … her family life is hectic … AND she is taking on some new responsibilities with her aging parents.

There is absolutely no time for ME,” she told me.

And you know what?

She’s right.

She has a TON on her plate.

So I suggested she make a mindset shift … and CUT HERSELF SOME SLACK.

Which can be incredibly hard to do, especially if you’re super goal-oriented.

It’s not about being “on” or “off” her health & fitness routine.

Instead, it’s about doing the best you can RIGHT NOW.

Over the long run, it’s your everyday habits that have the biggest impact on your health & fitness.

Habits like:

  • Making healthy food choices
  • Choosing activity when possible (walks, brief exercise sessions)
  • When you can, schedule 2-3 workouts a week (in pen) in your calendar
  • Getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night

All of these actions will add MORE to your life.

More energy (and less stress!) … and more vitality to take on each and every day, feeling strong and empowered.

It’s also a great time to hire a coach.

When you’re facing challenges, you NEED support, accountability, and a troubleshooter who can step back and see the big picture …

… and help you come up with solutions that work with your schedule & goals.

It’s not about working harder or longer … it’s about working smarter.

Over the years, I’ve had tons of clients tell me they were going to take the holidays off from their workouts and they’d see me again in January. And then in January, they said they wished they hadn’t taken the break!
They felt like they were starting over again.
