I stretch then begin exercise not long after I get up. This is so I don’t give myself time to start thinking about excuses why I’m not going to do it. This has broken a long held thought pattern. I still exercise early but by now I’ve done it long enough to know it makes me feel good. The negative voices have been overruled and don’t get a look in now.
I am grateful for another day full of possibilities and learning. The chance to help myself and others and feel loved
Generally I work hard to ensure I keep exercise up daily to ensure both body and mind start to flow correctly. If I’m short of time, I cut down my full routine and just make sure I do something. Even putting on a song and dancing to it for 5 mins is better than nothing.
If I miss any habit and start having thoughts where I begin to berate or criticise myself. I am conscious of them for what they are and then think of something good like achievements or thoughts that make me happy. We do what we do and the past is the past and can’t be changed. However, I may add exercise onto my to do list for the next day or a note to set my alarm earlier so I have time to complete. Reflection is good, but it is only valuable if we decide in the now, ways that we can put support in for ourselves to achieve an objective/goal
