Yes, I am a morning runner. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but to me, it’s a big achievement. I never used to think I had time to run in the morning. I have to get ready for work, have to walk the dog, don’t like morning running, my back hurts, the list goes on and on. And finally, one morning a few weeks ago, I just set my alarm clock one half hour early, walked the dog a bit earlier, went for a run, and came home. Took a shower, got ready for work and found that I was only 15 or so minutes behind my normal schedule. What the heck was I doing with all that time before??
When you make something a priority in your life, you have the makings of creating a new habit. Unfortunately, this work in the reverse as well– you make eating a priority, you gain weight. You make going out a priority, you may end up drinking to excess regularly. But we’re talking about making healthy habits. The universe just seems to support positive energy and if you can just take that first step, you literally start to change things and create new habits.
What habits do you have that you’d like to change? What habits would you like to develop? Pick one and write it on a post it. Stick it on your bathroom mirror so you see it each day. Let the idea start to sink in. And then one day soon, maybe you will find yourself taking that first, crucial step.
