How Can Organized Living help with Getting Fit?
If you are organized and disciplined enough you will be able to take all the necessary steps on which your physical health depends. As an example, it is considered very important that a person exercises on a regular basis and stays stress-free. Being organized will allow you to manage your time more effectively, which in turn will avoid stress and give you the proper time for your workouts.
In order to get organized the first thing you need to do is understand what your fitness goals are going to be. First things first, why not start by weighing yourself – you need to indentify if you are overweight and if so by how many pounds. Next what would you like to see as your ideal weight, to help you with this there are charts which can help you determine your ideal, healthy weight. A good idea is to consult your doctor and continue to go in for regular checkups.
Next take a look at your eating habits and sleep patterns – are you waking up in the morning feeling like you barely had a rest, lacking energy – obviously you are not resting well. Look at the amount of exercise  you are now getting and is you can, consult a fitness expert to help you understand what you need to do to attain your fitness goals.
A few posts back we talked about having a business planner and a personal planner, now is a good time to pull out the personal planner and write down your specific fitness goals and what steps are necessary for your success in achieving your fitness goals. Here is a list of a few ideas of what to include in your planner:
Periodically it is important to look at your progress you have made and what goals you have achieved, do this at regular and specific intervals as this will keep consistency in your plan. You should set short-term goals, mid-range goals and long-term goals – it is important to reward yourself each time you reach these goals. A reward should always be something meaningful so you will keep motivated throughout your progress thus increasing your chances of success in reaching all of your goals.
Getting fit is a serious commitment and should never be taken lightly or done on a bet, be serious about your lifestyle changes and do so as you strive for organized living. Being organized thus helps us to manage our time and our energies in a more efficient manner helping you to take control of your life. In the next few posts, we will provide you with not just a handful but over 60 organizational tips that will help you get your life back on track.
