What’s the least you can do?
What are your daily minimum requirements for yourself? What are the two or three essential action steps you’ll take no matter what occurs – because you’re committed to consistency in your efforts to having the healthy life you desire.
I’m not talking about your big, audacious goals for the year, or your dream situation coming to life.
I want you to write down what you can do each day – EVEN WHEN YOU TRULY CAN’T DO ANYTHING ELSE — and feel like you accomplished at least something to take you closer to your goal.
Here are some ideas to get you going.
“I will meditate for 5 minutes each morning after I’ve had my first cup of coffee.”
“I will move my body with intention for at least 30 minutes a day.”
“I will eat five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables every day.”
You can always do more. Well – you can almost always do more. But sometimes you can’t, right? Sometimes life gets in the way with unexpected events.
And on those days, having already checked the minimum items off your daily to-do list, you can go to sleep still feeling proud of yourself – and still on track.
It’s okay to keep it simple with your bare minimums 🙂
