Let’s talk about this whole waiting-for-the-perfect-time thing when it comes to making healthy lifestyle changes or working towards a fitness goal. It’s something we’ve all probably done at some point. We tell ourselves, “I’ll start eating better and working out when things calm down at work,” or “I’ll wait until the new year kicks in to get going.” But truth be told, waiting around for that “perfect time” is a waste of time because it simply does not exist.
The thing is, most of us stall because we’re waiting for the stars to align. We want everything to be just right—stress-free days, perfect schedules, no distractions, and a clear road ahead so that we can put all of our attention and focus into creating new habits. But life’s not like that. It’s messy and unpredictable. There will always be challenges and obstacles to navigate. And waiting for the “perfect time” might mean waiting forever.
The key to getting results isn’t waiting until a time when you can get everything “perfect”—it’s starting. Seriously, taking that first step, no matter how tiny, is what counts. It’s those little choices every day that add up to big changes over time. Waiting around for the perfect moment means missing out on these small wins that eventually lead to a major transformation down the road.
And here’s the kicker: the journey to achieving your health and fitness goals isn’t a straight line. There will be ups and downs. Waiting for the “perfect time” doesn’t prepare you for the challenges along the way. By starting now, you’ll learn to tackle those obstacles and build up the resilience you need to continue to push through no matter what life throws at you, rather than constantly letting challenges derail you and having to start from scratch.
Think about it this way: while you’re waiting for that “perfect time,” you’re missing out on progress you could already be making. Every day you put it off is a missed opportunity to better yourself. Even small steps count, like going for a walk, adding more veggies to your meals, or doing a quick workout. Each of these adds up and pushes you closer to your goals.
Not starting your health journey now also means you’re delaying all the amazing benefits that come with it. More energy, better mood, feeling stronger, overall improved health—all of these things are waiting for you, but only when you stop waiting and start taking action.
So, here’s the bottom line: waiting around for the perfect moment to start your health journey is a waste of time. Instead, jump into it right now, with your current circumstances and figure it out along the way. Realise that taking action, however that looks, and just doing your best regardless is the secret to getting results. The power to transform your life is in your hands today.
