It’s Wednesday afternoon. You’re half-way through the week and maybe starting to have a little midweek hiatus at your desk. Got to pace yourself for the other 2.5 days of the week. Your mind drifts to all the things you’re always intending to do, like get fit…
Maybe you can’t find quite what you need in Stoke Newington, or you’re short of time in Clapton. Maybe by the time you get back to your home in Hackney Central or your flat in London Fields you don’t feel you’ve the energy for exercise and working out.
So you’re going to wait until the time is right. But the time is never absolutely 100% right. You can always find a reason not to get around to it.
Unless you break that pattern (which is pretty easy, because it simply starts with just an email or a phone call and a small slot in your diary) you could always find excuses not to get around to dipping your toe in the fitness well – with all the good things that come with that.
Like being in charge of your own body; feeling a sense of accomplishment; feeling powered-up so you have more energy to get other things done; slipping on your sports gear and feeling like you are a fitness person.
Because the best time to start something is always now. The time is now. It’s your time. Use it. Do it. Now.
