Health is not a few days at the beginning of a new year thing.
It’s not an all-or-nothing thing.
It’s not an “I’m good, I’m bad” morality thing.
It IS about teeny-tiny shifts on a minute-by-minute basis.
It IS about getting up from your vitality-draining desk and moving around at least every fifteen minutes. Every day.
Move with microsteps.
It IS about grabbing a handful of macadamia nuts instead of a handful of fries.
Nutrition with microsteps.
It IS about forgiving yourself immediately upon recognition of said fries in stomach.
Self-compassion with microsteps.
It IS about noticing that you noticed the fries in your tummy and choosing nuts next time.
Mindfulness with microsteps.
It IS reinventing choice.
It IS reinventing reinvention.
Microstep: Think of moving more in terms of a few more steps than yesterday. Think of eating better in terms of a few more pieces of broccoli. Think of self-compassion in terms of a few more minutes of forgiveness. Think of mindfulness in terms of a few more minutes of meditation. It all adds up.
