I’ve learned that consistency is key.
I thrive when I make sure to consistently take care of my mind and body. Even if I don’t have time to workout for 2 hours a day, everyday — I still make sure to get in at least 30 minutes. Even if I find myself awake later than I would like to be, I make sure to go to bed as early as possible. For me, life isn’t about holding myself to impossible standards and waiting until all conditions are perfect.
For me, life is about seizing the opportunities I do have, and making the most of them. At the core, all ‘consistency’ really means is making the proper choice in the moment.
Are you choosing to carve out a little time for a 20 minute workout? Or are you choosing to do nothing at all, just because you can’t fit in your usual hour? These are the moments which make all of the difference when it comes to creating success.
Choosing to remain inconsistent when it comes to self-care, exercise, or veganism is detrimental to long term success. Are you building your challenges to be such mountains, that taking even the first step seems impossible?
My advice? Don’t do that to yourself. You don’t deserve that sort of pressure. Relieve that pressure by taking small steps in the moment which move you *even a minuscule amount* toward your goal.
Choosing to consistently move towards your goals (whatever they may be) is nothing more than a choice in each and every moment. Make your moments count, because moments add up to days which become years. Do you really want to spend years in stagnation?
