The Secret To Being Healthy
Do you want to know the secret to long term success in leading a healthy lifestyle?
Focusing on progress over perfection. As James Clear, the author of Atomic Habits, summarized in his discussion of marginal gains, “If you get one percent better each day for one year, you'll end up thirty-seven times better by the time you’re done.”
The trouble is, people are under the impression they need to make a large scale change with very visible results, for it to be meaningful. Not only is this unreasonable, it simply isn’t true.
2020 started off like any other year. Many people identified a new goal or made a New Year’s resolution. A few short months in, COVID hit. For the majority, the goal or resolution made back in January was buried under fear, stress, anxiety, and all of the other emotions that are a part of living in a pandemic. Normal routine went out the window; there was no opportunity to go to the gym, working from home shifted many people’s wake-ups and bedtimes, food and alcohol became coping mechanisms, and feelings of frustration, confusion and despair were part of the every day. Getting back to where you were “pre-COVID”-whatever that might mean for you-may seem overwhelming right now. Let it go. Instead, shift your focus to progress...what can you do to be 1% better TODAY? What has been your biggest struggle over the past six months? Start with that. Elimination, restriction, major overhauls...they are almost always short lived (as are their results.) Make the decision to commit to being a little bit better each day.
