Taking Stock of What’s Really ImportantPosted on September 5, 2015
This week for the podcast we interviewed a woman in her early 30’s, she suffered a stroke several months ago and almost died. The conversation we had was an emotional rollercoaster as she talked about her recovery and her experience. I won’t be able to post it for a few weeks because it will take a while to edit, but it got me thinking and reflecting about what’s important and how we take things for granted.
It’s taken me a long time to realize this, but being healthy is about more than just exercising, it’s about figuring out what we care about and focusing on it, it’s about taking a holistic approach to wellness which includes exercising, sleeping, and eating properly but it doesn’t end there. You have relationships with family, friends and professional colleagues, your physical environment and doing meaningful work not just work for a paycheck but work that touches and helps other people.
I urge you to take 15 minutes for yourself this weekend and reflect on what’s really important to you, your life and your health. Write down the things that are most important to you, why they are important and the first action you need to take on them. When you are taking action on them, do it like it’s the only thing in the world that matters in that moment. If you really want to live your healthiest life and be there for and with the people you care about the most focus on what it is you actually want. Everything else is just noise.
Enjoy your long weekend and remember at least 2 no more than 6 😉
