“If it’s important do it every day. If it’s not important don’t do it at all.” –Dan Gable

Have you ever heard that quote? It’s one I really take to heart. If you’ve ever been to boot camp and wondered why we do certain exercises all the time, this quote is to blame. If you deem something important why would you not do it every day? Makes sense in theory, but we don’t all put it in to practice. It is crucial to get repetitions on the important things, especially when it comes to your health and fitness. Think about the things you do every day. I mean EVERY day. Hopefully this includes things like brushing teeth, showering, eating, etc…
Have you deemed your health important? Does your daily routine reflect that? Take a look at it and then prepare your action steps.Here is your action plan. Pick out 5 things you will do EVERY day to improve your health and/or fitness. Make it specific and measurable. It could be sleeping 8 hours every night, eating 10 servings of fruits and vegetables, working out with intensity every day, etc… Figure out what’s important and do it daily.
The other thing you need to do is eliminate 5 things you are doing every day that are NOT important for improving your health and may even be harmful. Watching 2 plus hours of TV every day, staring at Facebook for 8 hours a day, eating out every day, etc... Take a look at the things you are doing and find out what you need to do more of and what areas have no part in your life.
