Today I have been thinking about the importance of doing something you know you should do when you don't want to.
Turns out, it is important! It has come up a lot in the books I have read this year, whether you want to get in shape, learn something new, break a bad habit or start up a new one - consistency is a key factor.
There is also the argument that getting into the habit of doing something when you don't feel like it, makes it easier to to do the same in the future. If you allow yourself to say "Ah, maybe tomorrow" to many times, you don't end up doing it!
For me today this meant doing some cardio fitness training. Didn't want to, didn't feel like it. But I do want to live a long healthy life, so now here I am, writing this blog, feeling hot, sweaty, exhausted and happy.
Here's to doing what you don't want to do, consistently.
