Wellness Tip of the Weekend: Creating new mental habits makes creating healthy physical habits easier and more fun. Practice appreciating, reinterpreting, and easing up.
This morning, my husband David and I are giving an Energy Leadership workshop to 100 students in Western Carolina University’s Project C.A.R.E. (Committed to African-American Retention in Education), so I’m sharing a blog from my fabulous friend and mentor, Jennifer Barley.
It is hard to believe how fast time flies. In just a blink of an eye, it’s Saturday, August 25, 2012. How did it all happen so fast? Where does the time go?
Habits can easily enter our lives or disappear from our lives. We may have had the best routine going and then all of a sudden, it’s been two months since you tracked your food, ate healthy, got in a good workout.
Often we “awful-ize” the whole kit-and-kaboodle saying things like, “I can never get back in that routine,” “I can’t get my mo-jo back,” or “Once I lose my groove, I can never find it.”
That is so untrue.
A new habit is ready to bloom. You just need to start. Today. Yes, start today. And repeat tomorrow. And then again on day three.
Time is going to go by anyway.
What new habit are you willing to start? Go ahead and make the commitment by posting your new habit in the comments field.
