Get Unplugged!

Goals 2008 Monthly eTips

Critical factors in goal achievement are your physical health and mental well-being.

The seasons are changing. For some of us winter is almost over and we are seeing early signs of spring. While on the other side of the world you may be enjoying summer and heading into fall.

We spend so much of our lives indoor, in front of our computers, in our homes and offices. LOTS of air conditioning! It is time for some OUTSIDE conditioning. Yes, it does take effort to get up earlier, or plan a to eat lunch in the park, or take your walking or jogging attire with you so that you can get on the hike and bike trail. Yes, effort. But isn't that what you have been doing with Goals 2008?

Change your scenery. Getting outdoors allows you to clean out those cobwebs in your mind. It gives you fresh air and sunshine (which translates to Vitamin D in your body). It's an incentive to MOVE. It gives you a different physical space, scents, sights and sounds on this journey.

The RESULTS: an increase in energy, creativity, health, and optimism.

Do something different. Change your routine. Get Unplugged ... from your phone, from your computer, from your wireless device!

* Go for a walk, a jog, a run or go biking.
* Take your dog with you. Take your children with you. They will LOVE it.
* Do you drive everywhere? Trying walking ... with your children to the bus stop, with your significant other, for a meeting with your co-workers.

* Be a fan! Attend a sporting event.
* Are you a player? Join a baseball, softball, tennis or volleyball team.
* Do you have a laptop? Take it outside and work ... work at your favorite coffeehouse or café.
* Take your Goals 2008 Action Planner outside!
* Do something you have thought about doing ... like a 5K walk or run, a triathlon, okay a marathon! It may benefit a charity too

* Bring the outside in...OPEN your windows!

Get moving! Buy a pedometer. Double your steps each day until you reach your new goal of 10,000 steps per day. You will be a healthier you!

You will be surprised at what you discover. Physical health and mental well-being are not 'extras' - they are fundamental building blocks that keep you at your peak so you can achieve all your dreams!

You are what you believe. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!
