Habits that Help You
Sow a thought, and you reap an act; Sow an act, and you reap a habit; Sow a habit, and you reap character; Sow a characters and you reap a destiny.
– Samuel Smiles
Happy Christmas Day! Completed my anchor habit for 10 minutes today. I’m easing myself back into my commitments firmly but gently. I didn’t do Om Yoga today, and I didn’t meditate, but I did do a flow I made up with my partner who was having a headache, we did some downward dogs, some vinyasas through chaturanga to upward dog, some triangle poses, and ended with a headstand for as long as we could hold it. We also tried some partner poses.
You remember flying like superman on your dads legs when you were a kid?
Yeah. Same thing. It was very playful and fun – not at all about technique or working up a heavy sweat. It was a great way to spend time together… We were laughing, helping each other, and having a great time! We needed that after the drive from my family’s house. I love my family to death, and this was one of the best Christmas’s in my memory, but traveling and staying with family is always stressful and sleeping in another bed is never as restful. When you travel on your vacation, it can definitely feel like you need a vacation after your vacation!
Today’s action: Decide on the most important new habits that will help you become the person you need to be to achieve your goals. Then put their start dates onto your calendar, or another place where you’ll be reminded of them and have a few days’ notice when it’s time to start a new one.
