Last month, we talked about getting started and trying something new. Welcome to yoga; it’s the best! Yoga will bolster your circulation, improve your joint health, regulate your blood pressure, build your bone density, increase your flexibility, and help you sleep.
But none of it matters if you don’t actually do it. The only thing you really need to be healthier is consistency. Meditating 5 minutes a day is better than meditating for 1 hour once a week. Eating a dinner that is 80% healthy every single night is better than eating 100% healthy two nights a week. Great news, right? Uh, not so much. Consistency is the hardest part.
Habits are hard to break and hard to create. We are each unique, but this much is true for all of us: ” Forget performance, only focus on starting. Behaviors only become habit once performed over and over again for a prolonged period of time. If you’d like to make something routine, you simply have to make sure you do it consistently over and over.” – Jason Gutierrez, behavioral scientist
