5 Tips to Stay Healthy and Fit


Create an exercise schedule the day before instead of leaving it to chance or waiting to “find” the time. If the last three Presidents of the United States can make time to work out every day, you can make time too!


Move beyond the boundaries of weight loss and into total fitness. Measure success by the way your clothes fit, your energy level, or your reduction in pain or stiffness, not the number on a scale.

Stick with eating plans you can maintain indefinitely. Remember that no matter how hard you’re working out, if you’re consuming too many calories, you’ll never see the muscles that lie beneath layers of fatty tissue.

Get adequate amounts of sleep so your muscles can recover. A bonus of exercise: most people who exercise regularly fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly!

Limit alcohol intake to special occasions

3 tip for Success

Be Conscious of your actions and reactions.

When you are more conscious in your day to day decisions you will find it easier to take the appropriate actions and have the appropriate reactions to reach your goals everyday. This allows you to have a purpose and stay true to that purpose also. When you begin to make more conscious decisions you will start to think more of your goals and if each decision will bring you closer or take you further away from your current goals.

Asking yourself things like:

-Why am I taking the time to do this?

-Why are you doing what you are doing right now?

-Does this help me reach my goals or is this just a distraction?


Start daily by:

-Writing down your goals daily.

-Create a powerful belief system.

-Invest in yourself

When writing down your goal – remember this should be done daily for many reasons. This will help you to determine what your day is going to look like. This will help you refresh what you are wanting to accomplish and what those goals exactly are. This will help you to have a more productive day. Lastly, this list of goals should not be more then 7-10 goals.

Next circle or underline the three most important goals you are going to work towards for that day. Even if it is as simply as sending a few emails to get the ball rolling on something, or finishing up a project. Take the time to do it.


Goals that aren’t written down are merely wishes. There is great power is hand writing out your goals.

Pick three wins for your day!

Three things you would like to accomplish in the next 12 hours in order for you to feel like the day was a success. Make those three things happen. Make a hard choice to focus of what you focus on.

Remember- Where your focus goes your energy goes.

Now choose what you will do! The actions you take are powerfully shaped by the emotional state you are in.

Once those things have happened you can celebrate what you accomplished and then choose what to do next for your day. This may be taking care of you, or starting a small project you have been wanting to work on.

It is your choice!
