Making your health a priority is non-negotiable if you want to live a healthy free life.
So the question is, is your health a priority? If I were to look at your daily and weekly calendar and to-do list, would I see healthy activities listed?
Do you have things like workouts, menu planning, cooking dinner, rest-based activities, Sabbath, and other health-focused actions scheduled throughout your day and week?
Are you tracking your progress of daily habits like:
- Worshiping God
- Sleeping 8 hours
- Drinking 64+ ounces of water
- Walking 5,000 steps
- Resting a minimum of 15 min during your day
- Exercising 4x/week
- Eating glorious foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?
If not, then chances are, your health is not a priority.
Maybe because your life is so full of other priorities. Like this dear listener who messaged me…
“I am in my early 60’s, and my life is as busy now as it was when I was raising my children. I have an elderly mom at home, am very busy with my grandchildren, work full-time, and maintain the house and a good-sized lawn. I am grateful for all of this – I am blessed. I am not complaining – I am just trying to figure out the best way to juggle it all. I feel overwhelmed much of the time, and this absolutely affects my eating habits. I feel like I burned the candle at both ends for so long that I am just so over tired that I can not seem to get ahead of taking control of my schedule.”
Can you relate?
Making Your Health a Priority
Busy and overwhelmed is an all too commonplace most find themselves in, especially women. Especially peri and post-menopausal women.
In our newest podcast episode, we shed light on the consequences of not prioritizing your health.
Then, we share some practical tips and tools you can use today to start making your health and wellness a priority.
You’ll learn how to take back control of your schedule, identify your big rock priorities, and become better equipped to make healthy choices and reach your health goals. We also talk about navigating perimenopause and the connection between aging, hormones, and women’s health.
“What we need to begin to do is we need to begin to reorder our big rock priorities in our lives in a way that supports this life that we want to live.” – Katrina
When your schedule is packed, and you’re constantly overwhelmed, it’s difficult to prioritize your health. It’s easy to put it on the back burner for just one more week, perhaps because you’ll start when you’re “less busy” or “less stressed,” … but your health depends on making it a priority now. So, let’s do the thing!
