My Resolution, Focus on Health

I have been running around doing a ton of different things and enjoying it, but it has been tiring and taken its toll on me in more ways then one. So my new year’s resolution is to focus on better health – mental, physical and financial. It’s all easily doable and I know what it will take, the key is simply making it a higher priority then all the other things that we get attached to so easily as we go about our day.

Many of my friends have told me that I am too giving, of my time, of my money and of my emotional self. I can’t imagine changing this very much, but I am going to remember the important airline safety instructions, "put your own oxygen mask on first before helping others".

Further, I am going to invest a lot more time in taking time out for me – for meditation, for yoga and for fun activities that I don’t regularly fit into the busy schedule. Of course, I have always been one to enjoy the roses as I am rushing about the world, but I have done so often with too much worry about all the other things on my mind. So, when I reference mental health, I mean to strike down that demon called worry and do my best to be present, focusing on the here and now rather than on what did or didn’t happen and/or what may or may not happen.

I hesitated a bit in writing about this challenge I face, but it is real, it is me and I know I am not alone in dealing with this issue. Removing worry is an utterly essential step for everyone to take in order to get the most out of life – something we all need help remembering from time to time…
