Do Something Everyday
A necessary mindset for a long, healthy, and purposeful life.
Be the type of person who does something every day.
Adopting this simple mentality will accomplish far more than any specific diet or exercise routine or wellness trend.
Success in nearly every domain of life, certainly in health, wellness, and fitness, boils down to consistency. If you can take enough small but effective actions every day, you will achieve your goal—whatever it may be.
That something may be different day-to-day.
On days when you’re full of energy and have enough time, it might be a 45-minute run and yoga or a 60-minute weight training session. On other days it might be a walk at lunch or banging out 100 push-ups upon waking. Or, if you’re really crunched, maybe it means doing 30 jumping jacks, 20 air squats, and 10 push-ups. Perhaps even less.
What you actually do isn’t all that important.
What matters is that you become the type of person who doesn’t miss a single day without doing something good—no matter how small—for your body.
Once you are that person, you will want to do more. You will crave it. Naturally, you will want to learn about different methods of exercise and various ways of eating that make you feel better and how to improve your sleep so you have more energy each day.
Ingraining the habit of consistency in your days will not only benefit your health, but it will improve every aspect of your life. You will see yourself with fresh eyes as someone who set goals and executes on them, as an action-taker, a doer, and a maker.
Consistency is the most powerful and effective personality trait there is.
Give it a shot, and see how you feel after a week of being consistent.
