Easing into routines

One of the reasons I chose ease as my word for the year is that I want to feel at ease in my body.  I know that consistently practicing intentional movement helps me feel better  – like I have more umph.

So I’m easing myself into a schedule. January was a think about and start month.  Last week and this week, I’ve worked out once.  That’s all that my easing into it plan requires.

To work up to a consistent, easy habit of moving intentionally 4x per week, I set the following schedule:

  • February – 2x per week
  • March – 3x per week
  • April – 4x per week
  • May  – 4-5x per week
  • June and beyond – 4-5x per week

This feels doable.  

On a side note – I bought a Smash Book and it’s great fun!  Memory keeping and journaling for the scattered.  I love it.

    I completely agree with your approach to start out slow. Starting a schedule that is too ambitious just sets us up for failure. The only thing I would add is that if you need more time to ease into your schedule – take it. You’ll know when you are ready to do more!

    Thanks. My past all-or-nothing approaches have ended up being pretty much ‘nothing’ so I decided to take things much more slowly this time. For me, it is more motivating to know I am giving myself time to make the adjustments.

      Hey there! It’s been a while. Hope you’re doing well.

      A Smash book, from what I can tell is simply scrapbooking for the less organized person. They remind me, somewhat, of the Griffin and Sabine books of the mid-90’s. I love the idea of it, but am finding that any type of scrap booking is just not in my reality right now. And that’s fine.
