So many things in today's society are trying to grab our attention and disturb our focus. Whether it's The Big D (Donald Trump) literally saying,"hey, pay attention to me!" Or the brightly coloured sign on the side of the road telling you that you're hungry and absolutely need to try their all new Bacon Mac Flame Broiled Double Cheese Butter Shake (ummm... gross), or maybe it's your own mind telling you that you've had a long day and can skip the gym, smoke that cigarette, and treat yourself to the stash of goodies you have at home for days when you "really need them."

It's easy to forget about all the progress that you've made on days that are stressful, when you're tired, or when you feel short on time. Days like that though are often when you need to be the most mindful. Simply making one healthy choice, such as taking an extra five minutes to pack a healthy snack or lunch for yourself, might be what leads you to jump on your bike when you get home, even if it's just for 15 or 20 minutes, which in turn could lead you to choose something more nutritious than a bowl of popcorn for dinner. You never know until you try, right?

Take some time for yourself every now and then. Attend a yoga class or find a video on YouTube. Get in touch with your breathing, remember the focus and how steady your breathing was in the class and apply it to stressful situations.

Find something that you want more than that cigarette - that feeling in your chest when you think your lungs might explode when you're exercising, that will start to go away when you start smoking less. Focus on that and remind yourself of your goal often.

Feeling anxious, lacking confidence, or maybe feeling you don't have enough time for 15 or 20 minutes of exercise? There are short-guided meditation videos on the Internet that might be just what you need to get yourself grounded and centered again.

What are your goals? What do you want?

WHY do you want it? Remembering your why will help keep you on track if it is strong enough!

 

Remind yourself daily and stay focused!
