I've Fallen (But I Can Get Up)

When we get discouraged, it is easy to just give up. To take that "all or nothing" attitude and walk away from it all. It would be easy to sit on the couch and rationalize that I can't exercise at all because my knee was injured. To stop looking at the college pamphlets; to resign yourself that you will never get a promotion; to eat that extra large piece of chocolate cake because you deserve it! It would be easy to give up.

These practices can slip into our lives without us even noticing as they feel so natural. It can be very difficult to give up or break a habit. We often hear people talking about wanting to break a bad habit, but we shouldn't forget that habits aren't always bad for us.

Are You On Autopilot? Wake Up!

Have I started doing my job on autopilot? Have I started taking my relationships for granted, not giving them my full attention? I applied it to my eating habits, my exercise, my sleep... even the way I clean my house. I realized that unless we get scared into paying attention to what we're doing, we often think we are committing 100 per cent to a task when we are not.
