This is the final article in our Fit January series and I want to give you some food for thought as we move towards spring (yay!). We are constantly being told to be more present — to focus on living in the here and now. I agree it’s important to be present in order to enjoy our day-to-day lives but I also think we shouldn’t entirely ignore the future.

Indulge me for a moment. We map out and design goals that, we hope, will move us towards where we want to go in life. These goals will help us to improve areas of our lives like our health, our relationships, and our careers. But why then don’t we spend adequate time imagining, the person we want to be in the future and thinking about the life we want to live?
