Have you ever reflected on the narratives you tell yourself about incorporating physical activity into your life?
Are there lingering beliefs or thoughts that place limitations on your capabilities and sense of worthiness?
Do you find solace in yearning for a more physically active lifestyle, rather than taking the step to make it a reality?
Are you more comfortable wanting than having?
For many of my clients, a pervasive belief takes hold—that being physically active is an unattainable feat.
It's too late.
I can't do this.
I've missed the opportunity.
Such thoughts become a barrier, making it challenging for them to break free from the notion that physical activity is beyond their reach.
In a recent conversation, I encountered an adult child deeply concerned about their declining parent's limited endurance and reliance on a mobility aid. Despite the evident decline, the parent remained adamant that nothing could be done to improve the situation.
Imagine the difficulty of functioning when one's physical abilities are severely diminished—it's akin to a healthy person grappling with illness. This analogy became particularly poignant for me during a recent bout of sickness, where exercise took a back seat.
Did the thought cross my mind that I might never regain my previous level of fitness? Not for a moment. Because I understand that it's never too late.
Commencing the journey anew is always an option. Whether it's a simple stretch on the bed, a leisurely stroll around the block, or a light resistance session at the gym—there are always opportunities to restart.
Yet, the prevailing mindset often insists, It's too late.
I'm here to dispel that notion. It may not mirror the past, but being physically active is undeniably possible.
So, I pose the question once more: Are you more at ease with the desire for change than the actual pursuit of it? Are you more comfortable wanting than having?
Ask yourself: Why not you?
It is never too late.
