Well I have never been much of a “morning person”. My usual morning routine is to hit the snooze button for 1/2 an hour take the dog out, do an impression of a fireman and rush out the door to get to my job. Not much planning goes into a day like that and does not set a very positive tone for your day.
Well as I am on own I can do whatever I want, and lately I have not been making great choices. I decide I needed to work towards my goals. I need to get healthy, make my long term goals come true and make enough money to do that. I don’t necessarily want to be rich, but my goals will cost money.
As I stated in my previous blog- I don’t have a lot of disposable income so I have been finding ways to improve myself and help that is low cost but mostly no cost.
I discovered http://www.stitcher.com/ and all sorts of podcasts. This is free service with ads of course. Check it out, they have comedy, news, language and self- help pod casts. Which lead me to find Hal Elrod…
Starting on Saturday 6/28/14 I have been exercising and getting up early to prep for my day. In no small part to http://www.halelrod.com/ and his http://www.miraclemorning.com/. He is a salesman to be sure but he put together a great presentation of practices that can work. I have been using them for 7 days and I have to admit my outlook has gotten much better. I am indorsing a practice of working towards your goals and a concrete and measurable way- if Hal is not doing it for you by all means go find one that fits your personality and temperament.
I might breakdown this week and purchase Hal Elrod’s book Miracle Morning because I cannot get it from the library. I also believe at some point you find something that works and you want it handy to review over and over. The library has lots of self-help books so that is a great source to supplement you self-improvement knowledge.
The best find for lifestyle changes as far as health and wellness is http://www.sparkpeople.com/ this is a free site. The site has a weight tracker, nutrition tracker, fitness tracker and articles and videos to help you get healthier. I even broke down today and took a before picture one week into this new venture. Not sure I will post yet but I have it to remind me I want to get serious about changing my life. And if you sign up please tell them member am3566 referred you so I get the credit. They have a motivating points system and if you sign up you will become obsessed with getting points.
The next cost effective tip is for exercise. I have found work out tapes at the library. What I am using now is http://www.youtube.com. Not that I don’t think anyone that hangs out on the internet has not hear of it but it’s not just cute pet videos they have all sort of exercise workouts as well.
OK enough of the advice for today. I just want to again remind anyone who is reading this, you only way will improve your life to your satisfaction is work and you don’t have to spend a lot of money doing it- just do the work.
you will get through it
