Motivation Monday: March 19th, 2012

Happy Monday!  Start your week off right with a little motivation to get you through the day.  Today's quote is:

"Energy and persistence conquer all things."~Benjamin Franklin

In order to be able to follow this motivation you'll need to do a few things.


For Energy:

1) Eat Well: Your body can not function at it's best if you've been fueling it with bad foods.  If you had a rough weekend eating wise, get back on track today at lunch time.  One of my fave's is a salad from the Whole Food's Salad bar.

2) Sleep: In order to keep that energy up you'll need to make sure you're getting the right amount of sleep for you.  Average for individuals varies from 7-9 hours a night.  Determine what works for you and strive to reach it.  Sleep is when your body heals itself so you can be ready to go the following morning.


Persistence:

1) Plan of action: Determine what you are setting out to do.  Whether its as simple as finishing house hold chores by a certain day this week, or training to run a marathon.  Write out your plan and give yourself a deadline.

2)Don't be discouraged by obstacles: Life has a tendency to throw obstacles in the way of our goals.  I'm sure the Bulls never imagined Derrick Rose wouldn't be playing against the Heat, but did they let them stop them?! No, the rest of the team went out there, played hard and what do you know? They won! Now, if you're not a sports fan you may have no idea what I'm talking about. The point is, there always seems to be obstacles thrown in the way.  Sometimes I wonder if it's a test to see how bad you really want something.

Make this Monday and this week a great one.  You have the power to do that for yourself.  Remember:

"Energy and persistence conquer all things."~Benjamin Franklin

Have a fun and fit day, Chicago.
