Get What's Most Important Done First!

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Well, this is my third day in a row of doing my exercises! It takes me about an hour, and I am up to 15 minutes of running!! Well, actually it's more like jogging. I'm only to a four on the treadmill. :) But, I'm proud of myself.

I've heard that you need to put the most important thing first on your list for the day. That's the best way to make sure you get it done! So, that's what I've been doing. I say my prayers/read my scriptures first thing, get my kids and husband out the door, then hit the treadmill and yoga video. Even if nothing else gets done, I know I've done what's most important. And it has been working!

I use to do my yoga in the morning, because I love it and it de-stresses me, and then run in the evening. But, the funny thing is, I always managed to talk myself out of the running part. I would let things get in the way - mainly myself. Unless, of course, I had to get my anger out. Then I would pound away at the treadmill. Unfortunately I don't get angry that often. I'm more of a "feelings are hurt so go eat" kind of gal.

So, I'm going to stick with this new change! I've been doing 1/2 hour on the treadmill and then 1/2 hour of yoga to reward myself.

Getting what's most important done first. I like it! :)

    You're putting yourself on the top of the priorities' pyramid and that's one of the secrets to success.
