Will just doing what you can make a difference?

I’m not sure about you, but my to-do list gets a little long…

And by long, I mean Rapunzel’s braid long.  Kind of makes me want to throw it out the window like Rapunzel did with her braid 😀

Having a list like that can be overwhelming.

So can starting a hard-core diet, or an over the top exercise routine.

While going all-out can work for some things, ultimately, things get done when we take them one thing at a time.  Burning yourself out with hours of gym time every day just means you won’t get long-term results.  Most crash diets end up in more weight gained than was lost.

So, for today, what is one thing you can do to support and nourish your body.

Is it going for a 20 minute walk?  Or adding 10 push ups to your routine.

Maybe it’s as simple as starting the day with a big glass of water, and carrying water around with you the whole day.

Or perhaps it’s taking a few minutes every morning before jumping into the day to think about some of the gifts of your life.  Roll them around in your mind and notice any sensations that come up in your body.

Find your one thing, and do it every day, until it’s a habit.  Then find one more thing.  Repeat as needed.

When we add one thing, we create way less resistance and backlash within ourselves.  After all, who can’t do just one little thing?  Doesn’t have to be hard, or take a long time.  But that one thing, when it’s a habit, can make a hug difference in your energy level, and  it can boost your confidence because you see you can make changes in your life.  And they don’t have to happen all at once with drama and suffering.

What will your one thing be today?
