What do you think you should be doing right now?

Posted Wed 13th May 20 - 2 mins read

There are so many things out there we should be doing that are good for us these days.

✨Check ups at the dentist
✨Eat a healthy diet
✨Take regular exercise
✨Clean the house
✨Pay the bills
✨Be a generally good person

But sometimes it get’s so overwhelming that it’s easy to just give up and do none of it.

After talking about this on my stories recently i thought i would look into it a bit more.

So i sat down with my journal and asked myself, why don’t we do the things that are good for us? I was kind of looking for one single answer but came up with a whole load of them...

How many of these resonate with you?

✨We’re human and not perfect and not living in utopia
✨We want to see what happens if we don’t do it
✨There’s something way more interesting to do
✨Existing bad habits
✨Fear of the experience/avoidance/ego/inner child
✨We just forget because of all the other stuff we have to do
✨Previous bad experiences/trauma/memories
✨There’s work or time or money or all involved
✨Fear of being judged/getting it wrong/holding a grudge against the thing
✨Friends/family/life gets in the way

I'm sure there's loads more...

The reason i wanted to write about this is to tell you it’s ok.

It's ok if we don’t always do the things we’re supposed to. Life happens and that’s cool. Be kind to yourself and don't beat yourself up about it.

If you’re suffering from overwhelm at the world we live in and just how much there is to do or you 'should' be doing, or can't do right now for whatever reason there are things you can do to help if you want to.

✨Practice good habit forming
✨Get Organised
✨Find an accountability partner or coach to work with
✨Make it into a routine so it becomes second nature
✨Practice forgiveness (see previous blog on this)
✨Practice bravery and confidence
✨Practice not giving an actual fuck.

What do you think you should be doing right now?

I can give you at least 5 things for this moment in time but I felt my top priority was to finish this blog 😁.
