Good enough is great.
Good enough health is great health.
Not just sometimes.
All of the time.
I wonder: do I need to be the health champion of the world?
Stretch my leg behind my head Yogini?
Nah, a decent downward dog is good enough.
Never eat a breadcrumb again?
Nah, a cheat day breaded whatever is good enough.
Being the best burpeer before brussels sprouts breakfast?
Nah, a couple of push-ups is good enough.
It's ok to just be "good enough health guy."
Good enough to feel a tad better than yesterday.
Good enough to not beat myself up over health stuff.
I often feel guilty when I don't work out every day.
When I eat something on my health guru's "no-no list."
When I catch a glimpse of my Pillsbury Doughboy abs.
It feels like years of "optimally healthy me" messaging is impossible to let go of.
"What am I missing?"
"How can I achieve poifect abs and work-life balance and a tranquil mind?"
How can I not want to eat this Rice Krispie treat?
But the reality is: more stress over "poifect health" doesn't really get me anything.
And if I can chill out good enough (non-perfect meditation) and replenish good enough (go to sleep already), then the time I spend working out and eating better will actually be good enough.
Today I give myself and my health permission to be good enough.
You wanna be good enough with me?
Microstep: Give yourself permission to be "good enough healthy" today. And tomorrow, too. Let go of having to do it all perfectly all the time. No one can.
