I can say that I am well on my way to ditching my Mark Wahlbergs. Although, I cannot say that the week went well.
The first four days I was unstoppable. I meditated and even though I was sick I did very light exercise. When I couldn’t leave the house, I sent facebook messages to aquaintances. I feel like sending encouraging messages to my friends and family isn’t very random as an act of kindness. I make a point to be kind to my friends and family.
Day Six crashed and burned like no other. I just lost it. I had no desire to list three things I was thankful for let alone exercise.
However, I did notice my positivity growing. On Day Seven, I was NOT into meditating. At. All. But I forced myself to do it. I looked at the clock to time my meditation.
At 3:26pm, I thought, I only have six minutes to go! I could have thought, Dude, I’ve only meditated for four minutes! If I had journaled at all that day, I would have written about my tangible progress toward more positivity.
To form a habit you must do something for 21 days. 21 consecutive days. I’ll be starting week one over, and I know that I will have better success the second time around.
