How a Service Manager can save your Life
What I am about to share with you isn’t new, but what you can do about it is.
This is a story about a woman – could this be you?
Late one Tuesday evening she was headed home after a long and arduous day. She had worked a bit longer than she wanted to wrapping up an overdue project. Her teen-aged children were already home, and she hoped their homework was already done. She was grateful she could just walk in, grab anything convenient to munch on, put up her feet and relax. Flicking on the turn signal and getting anxious to get to her couch, she applied her foot to the brake. No response. Pumping the brake over and over and nothing. Her mind went into a thousand directions – can I turn? If I turn, I’ll hit the house. I’m going too fast. How do I slow down? Should I hit something? I can’t hit something. I’ll hurt someone. I’m going to get hurt. What have I done? In her panic she hit a wall.
We all have.
You’ve done it. I’ve done it. We’ve taken our car in to have regular maintenance. Made sure the oil is changed regularly, good tire pressure, right tires for the right season, any squeaks let’s lubricate. We have a system of checks every six to eight thousand kilometers. We even get a guide and the service manager will tell us to pay attention to the scheduled maintenance because it can extend the life of your car.
What about extending your life?
I challenge you to making a Scheduled Maintenance Checklist for your body. After all, that is the vehicle you’re in 100% of the time.
You are SMART enough to know how to run a business successfully but are you consciously taking time for some Self-care on a regular basis. If you’re running on empty, experiencing mental fog, lack of focus or clarity, and perhaps suffer from hot flashes and night sweats, it’s a very challenging way to work on your business.
Now, be honest with yourself as we have all had to miss important meetings or events because we just weren’t feeling our best!
Being educated about what causes problems and what you can do to prevent them is the first and most important step to preventing common women’s health issues. Your health could be at the root of preventing you from achieving your goals and moving forward in your business.
Would you not like to find potential health problems BEFORE you feel sick or would you prefer to go careening down the street completely out of control? It may seem a tad dramatic but this is a wake-up call for us all.
To start your own “good health” practices, I will hi-lite three things you can do immediately:
- Eat a balanced diet to get the correct amount of nutrients and calories daily.
- Exercise at least three days per week.
- Get a minimum of 6 hours of peaceful sleep every night.
Your body and your business will thank-you when you’re NOT having to deal with uncomfortable or painful symptoms, when you feel more energetic, and are finally able to fully enjoy your daily activities.
You do not have to stop living because of chronic conditions that overwhelm you, nor get sick repeatedly. By taking care of yourself the way you do your loved ones or your business, will make it much more unlikely that most disease will become serious enough to negatively affect your lifestyle with debilitating symptoms.
Are you’re ready to start enjoying the quality of life that you hoped for and to minimize your risk factors and start feeling better NOW? Say, “YES, I am ready to step into vibrant health”.
To all women, everywhere… sending you love, light, and healing.
Until next time…
