“It is never too late to be what you ‘might have been’ ” George Eliot
Three months remaining in 2016. Have you accomplished your aspirations for the year…health-wise? wealth-wise? spiritually/emotionally/relationship- wise?
With three glorious yet untouched months ahead, it’s possible to still achieve our goals…to some degree at least.
I’ve come to the realization that it’s all about our daily habits…difficult to get started with but once they’ve been ingrained in your daily routine, everything else seems to fall into place as well.
I’ve spent the past two days mapping out exactly what I want to accomplish but doing it in a different way than before. The difference? Well, instead of my old way of saying, “I’m going to lose 10 lbs before year’s end”, I’m saying, “ok, I’m developing these daily habits…which may or may not enable me to lose 10 lbs by Christmas but I realize now that the habits will become an ingrained part of me(hopefully) and achieve even more than the initial weightloss.
Funny thing about habits…this method can also work towards getting rid of the bad ones as well…not getting enough sleep, not drinking enough water, eating too much sugar, spending too much time watching tv or being online, etc.
It’s also about doing things slowly and consistently so that you don’t burn out and crash. Case in point…I’d gotten a stepper as a gift from a friend of mine and we both aimed for the 10,000 steps daily. Being competitive by nature, I was forcing myself to do the 10,000 steps daily and got up to 12,000. Then my old Achilles injury kicked up again which led to my knee on that leg as well with months of pain. This time, I’m aiming for 4,000 daily to start and build up…slowly…from there.
So, this time around, my daily health habits will be:
Oil Pulling…Skin Brushing…the 5 Tibetan Rites…Breakfast…Vitamins…and Daily Steps.
Mind you…I also have other goals to achieve and have written a detailed list for myself on them as well.
Do you have anything you still want to achieve by year’s end? Please write a response and let me know…as well as any tips you may have as well!
til next time…Eva
