I’m not very good at maintaining habits. 

Or at least, not the healthy, nourishing ones! I’ve been hugely successful at nurturing the unhelpful and harmful ones, but struggle to keep up with things that are good for me.

Fortunately, I have come a long way since I thought that harmful was all I deserved. I know now that I deserve to do the things that make me feel good and keep me well.

But that doesn’t mean that I am able to do them.

Weirdly, when life gets tough and I need those nourishing habits, they seem to fall by the wayside. Maybe this is a side effect of the most challenging 18 months in a life beset with challenges? Self care is exhausting when it’s needed SO much! And right now, it’s needed even more than it has been through most of this pandemic.

I’ve lost my way with writing, exercise, healthy eating. And it shows. My body and brain are showing the signs. 

So, knowing that I deserve to feel good, to take care of myself and to express my feelings and share my insights, I’m starting back with some small daily practices that always make me feel good.

These are

  • Writing and publishing a daily Atomic Essay
  • 15 minutes of meditation
  • 30 minutes of exercise in some form

There’s more I’d like to do, and more I will do, but these 3 small practices will help me clear my head, restore my mental and physical wellbeing, soothe my turbulent emotions, and reconnect me to my writing and growth.

And help me burst through the inertia and resistance that has taken hold of me through some challenging times.

How do you come back to you when life is tough?
