This is a time-sensitive article, where I talk about:
- My personal experience with habits change, and how creating good habits has not just changed my life but who I am
- Today I’ll be doing a FREE live webinar for people who want to make exercise a habit. So if you’re “lazy”, or if you’re”procrastinating”, then scroll to the bottom, or click here to register. You can either attend by phone or through the web.
During the Labor Day weekend I realized the extent habits change you from within.
Just like any other weekend, I went to the gym. To my disappointment, the gym was closed! Ugh, I went all the way to the gym only to find it closed. I was angry at them for not clearly displaying their Labor Day holiday hours, and for not updating their website. I was very unhappy to miss the workout I was so looking forward to.
And this is when it hit me. Had this happened a few years ago, I wouldn’t have been angry for NOT working out. I would have been relieved! I would have thought: “Yay, I don’t have to exercise, and I have an amazing excuse for not doing it, so no need to feel guilty either!”
That’s just one of the instances that shows how much I have changed. It’s not that I hated exercise in the past – I didn’t. It’s just to an extent, I did see it as a chore.
I did see exercise as something I had to do, more than as I something I really wanted to do.
Maybe that’s why I was inconsistent with exercise back then. I was in need of a habits change. I used to exercise 1-3 times per week. I now do some type of exercise almost every day, and if I don’t exercise, then my body will make me do something about it.Read More
