What are the important things in your life that never get done? You know--the things that get pushed aside for "another time"? Things that you regularly remark about saying "I don't have time for that", "I'll get to that later" or "not now."
Over the years, I've had a few.
One of them was changing the oil in my car.
That was in my younger years. Oh, how I wish I'd been smarter! That procrastination eventually cost me a good car. Hard lesson to learn. The oil has definitely been changed REGULARLY on my vehicles ever since.
So, what are your important things that you "just can't fit in"?
How about VITAMINS!
Years ago I sold a diet plan that was largely dependent on vitamins. It worked well. Most of those who tried it lost weight and all of them felt better...lots better! But you should have heard the excuses from those inquiring about it. "I can't swallow that many pills." and the big one was "I don't have time for this."
Truly, I do understand that taking several of kinds of vitamins daily takes time and lots of swallowing. But how valuable is your health? If you are convinced that vitamins, minerals and herbs are important to your health, and that of your family, you have the time.
Here's how you do it:
Prepare each day's vitamins the night before.. or,better yet, assemble several days' doses at one time.
REMINDER: if you have children at home, keep vitamins safely out of reach.
Cup Method: I use a simple paper-cup process. All it takes is putting out a few paper cups to cover the days you are preparing.
I usually do three days at a time. This photo shows four. I immediately took that day's vitamins from one cup and saved the others for upcoming days.
Vitamin tablets do go bad after a while (that is why they are sold in dark colored bottles, to block out the light) so I don't prepare too many days ahead.
After putting the right number of each vitamin in the paper cups, I nest them inside each other and put them in a kitchen cupboard.
Each morning, I take all of the vitamins from one cup.
Learn a little about vitamins and minerals for yourself before deciding what you will take but do something. For some, a good multi-vitamin every day will be a big start!
Pill keepers are another method for organizing your vitamins. You can purchase them at any pharmacy or vitamin store. They have daily, weekly and even monthly styles to choose from.
Point is, some things that you haven't been doing and NEED to, must make the "I did it" list. Health is one thing that should take priority status.
And that is what getting things done is all about.
