Keeping the one day at a time mindset.

Sunday, July 18, 2010

emoticonJust wondering here how important it is to keep the one day at a time mindset going. I'm concluding it's VERY important.

If I get ahead of myself and start looking down the road, up the path and around the bend I start to project all kinds of scenarios. And many of them wind up with me failing...AGAIN.

So...I know I can do this today. I'll keep my mind on what I'm doing RIGHT NOW.

    These thoughts may be 4 years old but staying present certainly is timeless. Focus. And breathe, and do the next right thing. Lifer P T

    I agree. In terms of losing weight I find it is better taking just one day at a time. I do that with my job as well. I take teaching one class and one day at a time approach there, too. Only 5 years to retirement, but I can't look that far ahead. emoticon

    I always forget this and look too far ahead, but I know this is the best way to overcome bad habits and get to my goal of a healthy lifestyle. God bless and have a great weekend.

    Yep, you got it. Staying in the present moment "NOW" will help you keep from getting anxious and defeating yourself. So enjoy the journey one day at a time and rejoice in all of the successes, regardless of how small you might perceive them to be. Bottom line is, those little successes add up!

    When I ride my bike, my best rides are when I ride without considering the hills on the road ahead. I just ride the road that I'm on at the moment, and deal with the hills when I get to them. When I plan in advance about the hills, I actually make them more difficult. When I think about it in advance, I expend too much energy building up speed as I go into the hill.

    So I agree with you completely. Get through the NOW. And then you'll hit a nice downhill run with the breeze in your face and you'll see that the climb was worth the effort.
