Hello everyone :)
I have been battling procrastination for a while now, and as much as I don't like to admit it, I don't feel like I have made a lot of progress.
Hey, wait, I'm a bit too harsh on myself, to be honest! It sure doesn't appear like A LOT OF progress, because it's not phenomenal changes that happened overnight...
BUT, I have made progress, and I think it is important to celebrate it!
One of the things that makes my progress important is that it came through small habits. One day I decided to do this thing I wanted to do, and so I started doing it, and I told myself, "BE SATISFIED WITH YOURSELF EVEN IF YOU ONLY DID THIS THING FOR 15 MINUTES, because frankly, it's always better than not having done it, as you've done for the past bazillion days".
For example, I decided that I would start running FIRST THING in the morning, to get my energy up as soon as I get out of bed. Also, the reason why I do right after getting out of my comfy bed is because then, I don't even have time to think about the million reasons why I wouldn't want to do it or it would be better to stay under the covers for 5 more minutes etc
And so, I do it, as a habit. But wait! I am a normal human being, and I am not very athletic NOR do I have a lot of endurance... SO I decided I would start small :) And I did, running for (literally) 5 minutes. But the beauty of it is that every time I go out to run, I want to outperform my previous "record", so I run a bit more, and bit more, and a bit more.... And before I'll know it, I'll be running for pleasure, REGULARLY (that's what's important really :) ), upping my energy, my health, my endurance, and it won't feel like anything complicated because IT'S A HABIT!
SO, what the small habit you haven't celebrated yet? Share it with the world and feel better about it, you've done GREAT!
