Have you seen it? Amid winter’s darkness, spring’s sunshine is incrementally increasing. Enduring January always feels like a win. Winter’s grayness is not yet past, but we literally see and feel the light of spring. It’s like coming out of hibernation.
As the days grow longer, my sense of urgency to accomplish goals grows stronger. One ever present roadblock to goal progress can be procrastination. Procrastination rears its ugly head in many ways every day and we often excuse it. But progress cannot be made when we justify procrastination. One of the best deterrents to this obstruction is improved mind and memory wellness.
Keeping a sharp mind is vital for countless reasons. Remembering daily tasks, staying focused and sustaining our brain are just a few advantages of memory wellness. Keep in mind:
• Some things in life only we can do for ourselves- mind and memory wellness is one of them.
• Motivation is crucial. Having a healthy mind and memory as we age should be a priority for all of us, no matter our age.
• A positive attitude about wellness is key. Seize the day! There’s no time like the present to pay attention to mind and overall wellness. So let’s get moving!
