Excuses. We all have them. Somewhere in our lives, we have a reason we don’t do something we should because, well, we just don’t want to. Except that’s too hard to swallow sometimes. It’s just easier to find a reason we shouldn’t or we can’t. But isn’t it really that we just won’t?
That’s the hard question I want to ask you today. Which is it? Can’t? Shouldn’t? or Just plain WON’T? I think it’s often a mixture of things that come in and trip us up. We often know what to do, but we just don’t want to. Sometimes, though, we haven’t a clue.
The list of reasons we aren’t our best selves can be long at times and short at others. We can blame our genes, our jobs, our kids, you name it— even ourselves. One of the biggest excuses we all have probably used at one time or another when it comes to taking control of our health is something we all are given the same amount of in any given day: TIME.
