“I didn’t feel like it”
I couldn’t tell you how many times
My 2 year old daughter
Has decided that she doesn’t want socks on
Doesn’t want a coat on
Or trousers or leggings..
Even if it is -4 degrees outside….
Sometimes you have to do things even when you don’t feel like it…
It is like that with work
Maybe you don’t feel like it
But you do it because it is the right thing to do…
You know you will get the benefits from it
But they are not instant
There is no instant gratification
^^^ read that again
Because it is the same with saying
With being in control of how much alcohol you have (even if it is poured for you…more on that another day)
Your brain will nearly alway want to do the thing
That provides instant gratification…
Especially when you’re tired and stressed….
And we then add to this
By playing a trick on ourselves
By believing that we have to ‘feel like doing it’
To do it…
^^ that voice in our head loves this…because it gives us a reason to not to do something…
And of course..
There is a balance here between always doing stuff and rest…
But I am talking about
Those days where you know you will feel better after a workout
The endorphins flowing to your brain
Giving you energy
That sense of achievement ..
We don’t feel like it <<< whatever that feels like?
And although this has taken me a while to say this..
My point today?
Is what if you didn’t need to feel like it
To do it?
You just did it because it was the right thing to do ?
Like wearing socks on a day that is -4
Like doing some exercise ( no matter how small
…It could even be my one minute workout I did yesterday here: https://www.facebook.com/MattFruciNutrition/videos/424941158724247)
Done is better than perfect
And that is the exact philosophy that Cathy has applied since mid December
Can’t believe it is just…
