Last week, I was sitting down to create plan to keep me focused and to make sure I get done what needs to be done during my husband's deployment. It's way too easy to get wrapped up in reacting to life, instead of being proactive to life. So, I sat down and created a calendar on a piece of paper for the number of days that he will be deployed for. In each daily box is four letters. M.E.D.S. What it boils down to, are the four things that I need to do daily, so that I don't forget to take care of me, during, not only this deployment, but through this holiday season, and new year.
These are the four things that I need to do daily in order to achieve my best self.
Let's be honest, some days I only get the MED in. Some days I only get the MES, or EDS, or any combination of MEDS. But my ultimate goal is to take all of my MEDS, every day. Having these four letters to check off daily in my calendar helps me to stay proactive about my health and life. They are not things that should be done "occasionally." These are 4 things that need to be done DAILY. Otherwise, life somehow has a way of taking over, and the MEDS end up sitting on an empty shelf not being used. Get the benefit of your MEDS by making a daily effort to take them. It does take effort, but the rewards in "feel good power" are amazing, and the routine that you will create for yourself will put you closer to living more inspired! (and who doesn't want that?!)
