Good morning! I hope everyone slept well (regardless of when you have to sleep
). Great work for all of you that were able to get out and move yesterday. The rest of you - join us today!
I saw again and again listed as a roadblock yesterday: lack of motivation or laziness. No one here is lazy! You can't be a good nurse (and I know you all are) if you're lazy. You simply haven't chosen to made exercise a priority for you (yet.) Why is that?
It takes time - maybe you feel guilty or unable to carve a block of time just for you. Well, think of it as not "just for you" - an improvement in your health and overall well-being benefits your family, too.
You feel like the goal you have is unachievable, or you've settled on being in your current state, convinced that you can't be one of those success stories. Nonsense! Barring some medical complication, we all have the will to do with our bodies exactly what we set our minds to.
Even if you get tired out after 10 minutes of walking - walk those ten minutes. Next week you'll be able to do 12!
Again - you have to decide you want it and make a committment to yourself that you are worth devoting time to.
Keep up the good work!
"The only lifelong, reliable motivations are those that come from within, and one of the strongest of those is the joy and pride that grow from knowing that you've just done something as well as you can do it."
