What is your minimum? How many minutes, miles, or days of exercise can you do to know that you did enough? What is the minimum amount of exercise you could do to lift you up mentally, where you feel good physically, and you don’t feel the guilt of “not enough”?
What is your minimum for food? I’m not talking about feeling guilty because you just ate 10 holiday cookies (We’ve all been there, so we don’t have time to wallow in guilt. We have things to do, people to be, love to give…). No, I’m talking about what are the minimum number of healthy, nutrient foods you can eat and feel good about yourself?
What if we did our minimum for the day of exercise, nutrition, and meditation, all before 1pm each day? What if? How would that influence the rest of our day? How about we make a commitment to try it?
This may mean eating vegetables for breakfast. This may mean waking up a half an hour early to go for a walk. It may not be our “normal” or what other people do, but what if we do it anyway?
What are your minimums? Here are some ideas:
- I run at least 3 days per week
- I walk outside for at least 10 minutes each day
- I eat at least 1 fruit per day
- I eat at least 1 serving of vegetables per day
- I eat breakfast at least 4 days per week
- I meditate (or if you want to call is sitting and breathing quietly) for at least 5 minutes each day
- I do 5 push-ups and 5 crunches each day
- I stretch for 1 minute each day
Let’s find our minimums, do them, then, get on with the reason we are in this world. You got this!
