“I want to be more active, but tell me how! I come to my Sweet Mo sessions, but I don’t know what else to do.”
Ever wrestled with this pickle? I totally get it. You’ve got enough on your plate managing work, family, friends, transportation, berry picking, personal hygiene, and food. No need to make physical activity more complicated than necessary. Here’s a surefire tip that keeps it SUPER simple.
You see, the source of the problem is typically not lack of knowledge. You can probably rattle off a long list of things you could do to add more movement into your life: biking, yoga, swimming, golf, hiking, jogging, paddle boarding, kayaking, walking, dragon boat racing, gardening, dancing, dancing while gardening… 🙂
It’s also not a matter of time. Not really. I know you’re busy, but if you were handed a million dollars for every extra hour of exercise you completed each week, I suspect you’d find a way. (And you’d suddenly become VERY popular. Ha!)
The real kicker—the key to success—depends on changing routines. As humans, we are habitual creatures, and we easily settle into cycles of behavior that seem difficult to break.
“It’s much easier to start doing something new than to stop doing something habitual.”
— Elliot Berkman, Neuroscientist
If you really want to add more physical activity into your life, then don’t try to sit less, work fewer hours, or watch less TV. Don’t focus at all on what you want to STOP. Instead, focus on establishing a new pattern. No need to agonize over whether it’s the “right” activity. Just pick something and do it! – on a schedule that works for you, and ideally something you enjoy. Maybe it’s something different every day, or every other day, or every week. It doesn’t matter!
Just begin. And let yourself fall in love with movement. Today’s your day.
I can feel it.
