Daily mile minimum

Hey friends! I just finished up day 199 of daily mile minimum 🙂

My current fitness goal: run/walk/hike 1 mile a day (minimum) – 365 days in a row.

A daily mile puts me at 10-25 minutes a day depending on if I’m running or walking…

Which in reality isn’t much time at all!

Lace up, start Strava, and get to stepping.

Daily mile minimum is a great mental challenge and a perfect example of an easy to do, easy not to do activity that we touched on a few days ago.

Movers! Do you vibe with the daily mile minimum / these type of fitness goals? What are you currently working toward?! Comment below!

Last summer I completed cycle outdoors 100 days in a row and found tremendous value.

Challenge yourself to do new things in a fun and realistic way. Need help coming up with a goal? Hit me up or comment below!

LOVE Y’ALL ♡

Ask more questions

What do you see for your life?

Are you living for other people, trying to please their expectations?

Or are you asking questions, and trying to make the best decision for yourself?

Are you going with what others want?

Or are you challenging the “norm” and doing things differently?

Who do you want to be? Who and what do you need to surround yourself with? What kind of energy do you want in your circle?

Easy to do, easy not to do

Brushing our teeth.

Taking a shower.

Eating the right foods.

Drinking enough water.

Reaching out to friends / family.

Exercising.

Giving thanks.

Breathing deeply.

Reading a few pages.

Documenting.

Saying yes to things that bring us joy.

These things like many others are very easy to do, and very easy not to do.

Day after day, we have the choice: to do or not to do.

And what we decide creates our life.

Make time to be creative

When was the last time you created?

Building something out of nothing.

Finding a solution to a problem.

Doing art, organizing, writing, thinking.

Are you living day to day neglecting your creative muscle?

Or are you making the time to ponder and build?

How do you deal?

When something bothers you, how do you deal with it?

Do you stomp your feet?

Do you accept without resistance?

Do you pop off at the first sign of opposition?

Or do you keep your reactions in line with your values?

Growing up, my mom taught me to express myself physically and verbally (the Philly attitude that we all know and love lol) but as I got older I realized that I can choose how I react… and my life changed forever.

I don’t get into altercations with others like I did before, things that used to bother me no longer have the same effect. My life is evolving for the better because my reactions are better.

I now take a second to breathe and think how I want to respond. I accept and do what I can in the moment. I try to see it from all sides. And I try to hold compassion and empathy forefront.

So how do you deal?

Taking a walk

Hearing wind chimes, birds, lawn mowers.

Smelling fresh air, the flowers and greenery.

Seeing houses, cars, people, stores, streets, animals, plants.

Feeling my phone in my hand, champ’s leash on my arm, and socks on my feet. Also feeling grateful, a little hungry, sweaty, and inspired.

Tasting peppermint.

Thinking about the moment. Grounding myself in the now.

Progress over perfection

Ben Franklin implemented a values chart.

On the chart, he listed the habits he’d strive to do on the daily.

If he didn’t do a habit that day, he would make a small red x.

He started to see the habits that were easier than others to implement and adjusted accordingly.

The values chart is something to live up to however when we fail to do something, we have the opportunity to learn and grow.

And that’s the purpose of the values chart.

To lay out what we’d like to do, realize what we actually do / don’t do, and build a plan to bridge the gap.

The values chart isn’t about getting each day perfect, although that is the ultimate goal.

Embrace the day

Where do you find yourself now?

Maybe in a park, at home, at work.

How are you feeling?

Content? Present?

Uneasy? Anxious?

Is there anything you can do to make the very best of this moment?

Like taking a deep breath, showing gratitude, feeling joy, being creative, smiling.

You are everything you need

No matter what you’re going through…

You have the power to redirect your thinking.

You can think about what you’re grateful for.

You can think about peace and love.

You can think about ideas and concepts.

You can think about your own point of view.

When times get tough, let’s look inward and change the narrative.

Save for later

You’re browsing Amazon and see something you like.

* add to cart *

After you do a little shopping, you now may have a couple things in your cart.

The total price is high too.

Before going straight to check out…

Let’s go through each item again to see if you really like it.

But wait, do you need it right now?

If not, save it for later.

Then close the app. Come back tomorrow.

I literally have 55 things saved for later in my Amazon cart from doing this.

Imagine my poor wallet if bought everything I liked impulsively like I used to.
