From experience, the hardest part of becoming a fit and healthy person is simply showing up. That could mean completing your Monday gym session or it could be keeping good on your promise to go for a walk every day, or simply drinking at least 2 litres water a day. It could be any number of things. However, the thing they have in common is that they require action. The crucial thing here is, once you start, your more likely to continue the journey towards optimal health. The opposite is also true. If you keep putting off what you know you should be doing, it becomes harder to arrest the slide and get back on the wagon. So start small. Just for this week, make it your mission to show up in your life. It doesn't have to be complicated. Arrive on time to the gym, ready and willing to put in a good session with your personal trainer. Essentially, get comfortable being uncomfortable. You'll soon find that the hardest thing of all was lacing up those runners or simply getting out the door.
