How to find it. How to keep it. There are no easy one size fits all answers. The answer for you may change over time.
But I can share what has most helped me:
The simple concept of ”just one thing” so beautifully expressed in this post here . The key thought from the link is: “If I were going to just do one thing” (to move me in the direction I want to go), “and that thing were ridiculously easy to do, what would that thing be?”
The first I came across this basic concept was from Flylady and her 15 min. cleaning sessions. Sometime when you don’t know where to start (and maybe even don’t want to start) on your to do list try this: Pick one thing, the easiest, and set a timer knowing you’ll only have to do it for 15 min. Let me know what happens!
There were days I didn’t want to exercise but I could easily convince myself to do 5 minutes. So I did. Those 5 minutes grew. I could only do 1/2 a push up. That 1/2 a push up grew. Now, most days, it’s easy to get in a good 45 min. workout! Those small steps were invaluable to getting me where I am today.
Don’t ever underestimate the value of any amount of exercise. Just start. Wherever, however and at whatever amount feels doable and hopefully even fun!
Need suggestions? I’d love to help! I’ll be posting ideas on this blog.
