Did you hit the snooze button this morning?
More importantly, are you hitting the snooze button your LIFE every morning?
Life is a funny thing, we often take this precious gift for granted, especially regarding our health and wellness. A sad event/wake-up call rattled our family this week. My uncle experienced a heart attack and while he "should" be okay moving forward, he learned that he can no longer hit the snooze button on his life.
It's easy to talk ourselves into a new pair of shoes, a vacation, or a flat screen tv, but talking ourselves into leading a healthy lifestyle is something we mock, overlook, and "hit the snooze button" on. How many Monday mornings have you promised yourself you'd make it to the gym, simply to hit the snooze button and say "oh well, there's always tomorrow".
What if your tomorrow as radically effected by all of the snooze buttons you'd hit up until this point?
I am not saying that you need to go from 0 to 60 in a day, but could you finally make it to the gym as you promised yourself you would do, perhaps you'd finally decide to quit smoking and see it through, give up fast food, or do the one thing you have been hitting "snooze" on for days, weeks, months, or even years.
Sooner or later we will run out of snooze buttons, second chances, and tomorrow's. Don't let a potential life threatening situation present itself that you very well could have prevented if you simply decided to stop hitting snooze.
My challenge for you is simple. STOP HITTING SNOOZE! Tomorrow, when your alarm is blaring and you want to hide under the covers, challenge yourself to pop out of bed and give the day all you've got!
