Consistency Is Key

Consistency is key.

 

Breaking News – I recently caught a bus.

 

It felt incredibly strange! It’s only been a few months, and it amazed me how quickly normal things become unfamiliar.

 

I know the brain naturally prunes the networks that we don’t regularly use (that’s why your knowledge of a foreign language gets rusty between visits), but the familiarity of a bus! Because we can forget things this easily, I think it is probably a good idea to consistently do the things that bring us the results we want.

 

Here are the four things I do every day – without fail.

 

  • Four rounds of breathing Visioning practice
  • 2.5 minute cold shower
  • 20 minutes of exercise
  • Gratitude journal

I do them because they improve my mood and mental state and set me up for the day – but also if I missed any of them, I think I would probably struggle to get back into them – particularly the cold shower.

 

I’ll say it again… Consistency is key.

I have learnt to recognise opportunities to step beyond my comfort zone in the pursuit of things that bring me true fulfilment – it was a small tweak that has ended up making a significant difference. We now speak on a regular basis and Simon has become the voice which says “you can do this”.
