I couldn't tell you how many times I've heard my clients say things like:
I don't have time to shop for fresh produce.
I just don't have time to make a healthy dinner.
I don't have time to exercise.
We are an extremely over-committed society. We've got demanding jobs that have us on call nearly 24/7, kids with a zillion activities, and oh yeah, we also want to have some fun every once in a while. I understand the over-committed life--I'm right there with you.
But when someone tells me they don't have time to take care of their health, they're telling me that their health isn't a priority. We make time for the things that are important to us. As someone who lives with an autoimmune disease (and as the wife of a Type 1 diabetic), I've experienced that when you don't have your health, you've got nothing. Sure, you can skip out on healthy meals and exercise for a while, maybe even for a couple decades, but it will catch up with you, and it ain't pretty.
The good news--no GREAT news--is that with some planning upfront, you can make time for our health without making it all-consuming. More energy, a leaner and stronger body, and a happier mental state are all very achievable by making your health a priority.
