Start a daily "to do" list and make sure you are in the top three spots. The sooner you start out this way, the easier it will become to start putting yourself first, without feeling guilty. Make exercise a top priority, as well as preparing your healthy snacks or meals for the day. Women especially tend to place everybody and everything else before themselves leaving no time in the day left for exercise or relaxation. Start making yourself, mind, body, and spirit a top priority!

Sometimes during an early morning workout my mind starts to wander to all the things I need to do, and I start feeling exhausted, then I remind myself that because I am working out when I normally would be asleep, I am actually accomplishing more that I could imagine! Stay Positive!
The 'secret' is to put yourself first, to be in the moment and make your workout count. You deserve to invest this time into yourself, and letting your mind wander to the stresses of a day that hasn't even started saps you of your strength, Do yourself a favor, and put yourself first every day.
