That’s because there will never be the “perfect time." This does not just apply to your health. FInding your dream job, launching a new business, that big project at home.
When it comes down to taking care of yourself, it’s easy to let other things in life take priority. The more ambitious you are, the more it seems like the right thing to do.
Once I finish this big project I’ll start to focus on my health.
After I become Vice President I can get back to running more regularly.
As soon as my business is profitable I’ll have time to plan out my meals and bulk prep my food.
Just as you hit any of those milestones, or whatever it is you’re gunning for, the next “big goal” will magically appear. As it should, because you are not one to settle.
But I see many people still “settling” on themselves, just accepting their bodies and health for how they are. Searching for the perfect time when the other aspects of their lives calm down enough so they can focus on themselves.
Just assume that’s not going to happen, ever. It’s just not in you to get to the point where your drive for wanting more in your professional career, side hustle, or whatever, to go away.
With that being said, just start working on yourself today with something small like drinking more water. Repeat it tomorrow. In a week or two, once it becomes a new habit, pick a new habit to build.
