Just finished reading a book called, "The Power of Habit." It's a best seller and goes nicely with my constant reading of the blog called, "Zen Habits."
A very long time ago I realized that I was terrible at making changes in my habits and that it caused me a lot of trouble. So I'm in the middle of researching what scientific research is learning as well as what Leo of Zen Habits has learned and tried out on himself.
I've been working at this for several weeks. One of the habit changes is exercise and I've done okay with that. Not to the extent that I could say I've established a habit, but enough to have experienced some benefits.
I feel better. I have a tiny bit more energy. I'm hoping that my lower back pain will go away like it did when I was in physical therapy.
Of course, the trick is to keep at it. I have five priorities - things to do every morning. I'm working at managing to do all of them the majority of the time. I'm not even half way there yet, but I have achieved an average of three times a week. Not too bad.
It's making a big difference in my self-esteem and in my mood as well as creating a higher level of peace.
