By doing it this way, I am able to dump all that is in my memory to a piece of paper and still prioritize them.
I get overwhelmed when I start fussing about everything that needs to get done. This helps me a bit to reduce the overwhelm. Couple it with deep exhalations that help our bodies, it works out better for our bodies
Then I realized that The Fabulous was not saying that we had to do all this at the strict timetable. They are concerned that we do these rituals at our time. We can tweek when we do it and how we do it…..as long as we do it daily, it is the repetition of the habit that makes it become an important part of our lifestyle.
Personally, because I am 82 year lady with physical issues. I don't have the ability nor the energy to follow the program as is, so I adapt it to allow me to do it. The importance of doing the habits daily is prime, as it is the point at which they are getting.
I don't have young children, or young grandchildren for that matter to take up my time. I am able to spend my free time as I wish. And I do. And my wish is to change myself to a healthy lifestyle so that whatever time I have left will be more enjoyable for me. When I am feeling better physically AND mentally, my friends and family tend to benefit, as well. I am not a shy, retiring, little old lady! When with my children and grandchildren, we tease each other, unmercifully.! Because of my stretching an hour 5 times a week at least, I feel so much better, more flexible, less pain and my body has become more toned. I now compare myself with a couple of late teenaged grandsons who are athletes. We compared our arm muscle and how high we can lift our legs, while sitting…… And I beat them both! And they do not cheat to make me feel good because they know that I can tell. We have compared ourselves in the past! I am a feisty Nana! I was a very active kid. And although I am not as physically fit as in the past, my mind is still doing very well.
I mention myself in order to let you know that I know what you are feeling. Fabulous is suggesting that you create healthy habits on a daily routine. I have found that for me, doing the exercises and/or stretching works. If I write about journals about Gratitudes, my Purpose, my Mistakes(and changes to correct them through behavior or thoughts), etc. etc. I have to admit that writing about myself is the most difficult for me to do. While saying that, I do know that when I read what is written, I see where I need to change. The biggest problem is facing myself. But, only the journals tell me who and what I am. Only through them do I find my inner self. It is the most difficult thing for me. But, I try to do it.
This long story to suggest that you do the habits daily, but at a time that is good for you. Otherwise, you might be at risk of not doing it one day. When you stop one day, it is easier to stop another day, leading to Not creating a habit! Just as you do what you enjoy, it is easy to stop doing a habit that is good for you that isn't as enjoyable! Please try to keep doing the routines. In time, it works!
So, if you find you are having a problem, please write to knowledgeable people who work to make us happy and healthier people.
I wish you success, good health, great happiness and a lot of laughter! I believe that laughter is the best cure for most of our problems. Bye, bye.
Or make a huge effort trying to accomplish every little thing causing you to feel overwhelmed or even tired, the purpose of fabuluos is to create new great habits for you to be better every day, not for you to feel overwhelmed every day.
intense exercise, like a HIIT or spin class – with a coach who can push me to really sweat – I find that the other stuff which gets piled on does not freak me out.
I get to the end of the day and know I’ve done well by my body and the rest of it sort of falls into place.
When I can’t quite focus enough to get the sweat on, nothing else takes enough priority for long enough to cool me out.
