You know exercise is going to help you feel better.
You want that movement to change your daily attitude, your energy levels, your outlook on life.
You know those pushes are good for you, but that doesn’t make it any easier to actually take that first step to build any new habit.
So how do you start something new for your well-being?
One step at a time.
You don’t have to dive in head-first. You can slowly move out of your safety zone step by step.
Maybe today it’s just putting on your gym clothes. That’s it.
Maybe tomorrow you put on your gym clothes, go to the gym, and walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. And that’s it.
What small step can you do today for your well-being, your new habit?
Maybe it’s coming up with ideas for a new habit.
Maybe it’s finding an accountability partner.
I know that even that one step can feel overwhelming, especially if it is something you've never done before. But expanding your world will help make the percentage that grief consumes smaller, making it feel lighter, less suffocating.
