There are many balls we keep in the air on any given day. Being a partner, parent, friend, daughter, son, our work, possible hobbies, causes we care about… They all demand and deserve some of our time and focus.

And somehow we have to add health and fitness to our daily juggle. Unless we’re willing to drop a ball or two, it’s unreasonable to think that we can afford to give fitness our undivided attention.

Yet, this twisted perfect-or-nothing attitude often sabotages our health and fitness progress. We aim for a 10/10 score and feel defeated when we can’t maintain it.

What would happen if you’d give yourself permission to score a 7 or 8 in health and fitness?

What would you lose? What would you gain?
