do then feel.

I’ll just be upfront and admit it now. Some days I really don’t feel like doing anything. The last few days I’ve had so much on my mind concerning school, personal goals, and all that jazz. I haven’t slept well. I have a crick in my neck and my back hurts. My last few lifting days have SUCKED. It’s now past noon, and I haven’t even attempted to make it to the gym.

I’ve come to realize sometimes you just need to get up, get dressed, and go- “Do then Feel.” I’ve encountered many days when I just don’t feel like working out at all. And you know what? That’s alright. Giving your body a little break is alright. But, I need to remember feelings are fleeting. In the course of an hour (and sometimes less than that) I can feel like running, then feel like eating healthy, then feel like reading a good book, and then feel like doing nothing at all. Geez, feelings are exhausting. Since, feelings are ever-changing when you “feel then do,” you usually end up not far from the starting line.

So, by creating a paradigm shift in my mind I’m more likely to get moving. So, when I just go for a run, or eat healthy, or dive into a good book, I don’t give myself time to respond to feelings. By doing first, I always end up feeling accomplished in the end. I learn more about myself and the world around me. Be forgiving, take it one step at a time. So, with that being said, I’m outta here.
