I woke up late. I have bed head. I'm really tired.
It's one of those days where I want to go back to bed, get under the covers and just be sleepy cosy all day.
ONE of the problems with this is that staying in bed too long physically hurts my body. It's better if I get up!
I think about a friend of mine who specialises in Kinesiology (body movement!) and her passion for us to all just keep moving. It matters NOW so we can move when we are 60,70,80!
I believe it. Just keep going.
So even though I am tired today, I will get moving. It's my commitmment to myself. (note: my walk today was only 6 minutes. It was all I could do.) Remember this: every step counts. If 6 minutes is all you can do today, that's ok. Be proud and reset tomorrow.
6 minutes didn't make me happy. Didn't make me feel joy. BUT it was all I could do today. So I flip that on it's head... and now I think:
6 minutes is better than 0.
I got outside today.
I'm doing my best.
Wow, that sounds a lot better than 'bad job for only 6 minutes'. And when I give myself a pat on the back for 6 minutes, it really lifts me up. Nobody ever got better at something with someone telling them how bad they are! Celebrate all small wins.
Hugs from Kris
