Fad diets and “easy” solutions come and go but the real secret to getting a lean defined midsection is hard work and discipline over a set period of time. However, it really comes down to the “one minute at a time” approach.
We live in a culture of instant gratification. (Too bad we can’t just pop our midsection in a microwave and set the timer for one minute. Beep! Beep! Beep! and Presto! Out comes the perfect sculpted physique.) Anything of value requires a long-time perspective and repeated attention to the behaviors which lead to the ultimate outcome.
The “tools” for designing a healthier, happier life aren’t really all that revolutionary but over time they can be used to create something of lasting value. It only takes about a minute to write down your goals on a weekly and even daily basis. It only takes about a minute to plan or pack a meal or snack in advance to avoid tempting situations later. It only takes a minute to get your heart rate to 60%-80% of your maximum or do one set of a weight training exercise.
It only takes a minute to read and reply to these articles. There has never been a time when we’ve been assaulted by so many demands on our attention. When people tell me they don’t have time to eat right or exercise, I politely ask ‘What do you have time for?”. The problem isn’t the amount of time, the problem is the amount of focus.
What I hope to accomplish through writing these articles is to bring to your awareness how precious a commodity time really is and how it’s your responsibility to make the most of every minute to achieve what is truly important to you and those you love.
