Things I never regret doing

Thanks to Daylight Savings, I woke up before 6:30 again this morning and successfully dragged my lazy ass out of the bed and exercised again. As expected, it was difficult but I felt pretty good about it afterwards. This of course always happens. It got me thinking: there are quite a few things that are always hard to do at the moment, but I never regret it afterwards. Here are just some that come to mind immediately:

  • Exercising:
    • Why I don’t do it: laziness.
    • How I feel when I actually do it: proud of myself, a good kind of soreness.
    • Goal: 4-6 times a week
  • Facial masks:
    • Why I don’t do it: laziness.
    • How I feel when I actually do it: amazing! My skin always looks clearer, the pores look smaller, and everything just looks 10x better.
    • Goal: 2-3 times a week.
  • Stretching
    • Why I don’t do it: laziness
    • How I feel when I actually do it: great! much more limber and just overall fantastic.
    • Goal: 7 times a week.
  • Reading:
    • Why I don’t do it: I get distracted by…other stuff (usually the internet)
    • How I feel when I actually do it: inspired. It’s definitely food for my brain.
    • Goal: 3 days a week
  • Writing:
    • Why I don’t do it: Laziness / I get distracted
    • How I feel when I actually do it: Accomplished, and my thoughts are much more organized.
    • Goal: Every day
  • Organizing / Getting rid of things (mostly clothes)
    • Why I don’t do it: Laziness
    • How I feel when I actually do it: Relieved and lighter and freer. It really does feel like getting rid of all that weight of the stuff. 
    • Goal: Every quarter.

Overall conclusion? Be less lazy and spend less time on inconsequential things (i.e. things with minimal to no real / meaningful return…like fb / IG).
