“Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.”
~ Alan Lakein
Look for win-wins
Try looking for activities that achieve more than one of your objectives, for instance if you would like to get fitter and to save money, cycling will both improve your fitness and can save on transport costs. Likewise, if you are someone who would like to get fitter and also widen their social circle join a club rather than exercising alone.
Every stage of our lives offers fresh opportunities. Whilst you might like to revisit old activities, how about exploring new ones?
Stretch not stress
As a guideline look for activities which are going to stretch you in some way but not ones that will be stressful.
How do you eat an elephant?
