November is the month of Thanksgiving, giving thanks for all we have. I encourage you to take stock of the things that you have to be thankful for: the people, the opportunities and your health. Your health may not seem like an aspect of your life that is something to be thankful for. However, too many of us know friends and family who are not in the best health and who are trying to deal with it. So, yes, your health IS something to value.
Typically toward Thanksgiving, with the December holidays right around the corner, the celebrations and holiday expectations tend to lead us away from taking care of ourselves and focusing on our health. I am writing to suggest that you make your health a priority this November. How? I have some suggestions – 1. Set a schedule before the craziness begins. Be realistic! This might not be the time where you decide to bump up the number of times you workout. Perhaps this is when you maintain your current level. 2. Recruit a friend 🙂 The holidays are a time to celebrate with friends.
Instead of lunch together – get together for a Pilates session or a walk. 3. Commit to the workouts now – sign up and pay. Now this might seem like a self-serving statement …. I have to admit because this is a crazy time for me too, I do appreciate having my schedule set. Pre-paying is more than this though – I have found that paying for the classes up front, solidifies the commitment for my clients. You won’t cancel and this is good for you! 4. Make the schedule convenient. Just as this is probably not the time to bump up the number of workouts you fit in, this is not the time to force yourself to get in for a 6 a.m. workout if you’re not typically a morning exerciser.
I have a special offer for you to say Thank You to each of you for your commitment to True Balance Pilates and me. I truly appreciate you and enjoy working with you! To show my appreciation, please mention this email to receive a 10% THANK YOU discount on all sessions you pre-purchase for the balance of the month of November.
I look forward to continuing our work together.
