I will be 28 years old this September. Now I know I’m not old. But I have lived long enough to know I have not lived a consistent life. And when I was consistent, it was consistently bad decisions.
I smoked from the age of 15 years old until January 2nd, 2019. I consistently supported that bad habit. I consistently used that bad habit as a crutch for stress and boredom. Until I woke up on January 2nd and decided I no longer needed that bad habit. December of 2018 I had decided that 2019 would be the year that would kick start consistent good in mine and my family’s life. I knew I had changed my state of mind when I woke on January 2nd and my body told me I no longer needed this crutch.
From there I have tried to make consistent good decisions. I have started a workout routine before bed and I have noticed an improvement in my sleeping pattern since I started doing this. I used to suffer from not being able to fall asleep quickly. I used to lay in my bed, not watching t.v., not looking at my phone. Just laying there wishing I would fall asleep. I thought I just had a sleeping malfunction.
But now I sleep great! I fall asleep fast and stay asleep. Sometimes I sleep like a rock and wake up feeling it. But I love my new sleeping pattern. I don’t wake fatigued and feeling groggy. I don’t moan and groan in the morning at the day that lies ahead of me. I pop out of bed with energy and ready to conquer whatever is in store for me.
I believe that my consistent state of mind to do my workouts before bed led to my improved sleeping habit. The improved sleeping habit leads to better days. The improved sleeping habit improves who I am as a person. I’m no longer constantly grumpy or wishing to go back to bed. It’s the snowball effect. One consistent and good life change has snowballed down and improved two other parts of my life.
Now that I have noticed this and had it impact my life, it is how I am going to lead my life from now on. As long as I stay consistent, there’s unlimited possibilities ahead!
Stay consistent in your decisions. You will notice the snowball effect those decisions have in your life. Noticing this will help you to make the decisions that will improve your life and take you in the direction you wish to go. Stay consistent and only you will be able to determine your limits.
