Do you want to be comfortable or do you want to grow?
I heard that question in a recent episode of the “Secrets to Success” podcast. They are referring mainly to career and business success, but it sure does apply to your own success as a healthy human.
Moving away from the things you are used to can be uncomfortable.
Starting to consistently eat foods that you (currently) don’t find that appealing. Yes, kale can be very hard to get used to, but there are alternatives.
Spending a little bit more time sleeping, a little less time watching TV. And no, watching TV to fall asleep is not the same. Your Netflix subscription will be there again next month.
Showing up a little later to the party so you can get your daily walk done first.
Shutting off every device you own, and letting your mind go quiet for (gasp) just 5 minutes a day to meditate.
Forming new habits is a short term thing until they become routine.
You will then get to the point where you crave an apple instead of a bag of potato chips every afternoon.
Or competing with your coworkers on who can reach their daily water goal first before it’s time to leave.
Post a comment below on the one uncomfortable thing you will try today.
