I find the greater my aversion to doing something, the greater the payoff if I actually go through with it.
A yoga practice
A 20 minute meditation session
Brushing my teeth before bed
The list goes on.
Our lives are made up of seemingly menial tasks, many of which are easily left for tomorrow. What begins as tomorrow though becomes a week or month or year. Before we know it we are overweight and have gingivitis.
Had we heeded the seemingly small task or habit in the moment though we would have a lean physique, calm mind and cover worthy pearly whites by now.
It is the tiny, minute practices and habits we employ regularly (despite the friction associated with doing them when we don’t want to) that make all the difference.
If not me then whom?
If not NOW then when?
