Recently my friend and fellow blogger Scott Young did a great post entitled, " New to exercise? Make workouts daily ". It was an excellent post, and perfectly timed as it mirrors my own recent efforts at making exercise a daily habit.
Many of us love the thought of running. But running every single day often seems like an impossible thing to do. However, starting a daily running might be more achievable than you think. 12 months ago I ran exactly 0 miles a week. But now, I'm running 20 miles a week.
Have you ever tried to start a journaling habit, only to quit a few days later?Personally, my problem was always starting and stopping.I'd get excited about writing a daily journal, and for the first week, everything would go smoothly. Then, I'd get busy one day and decide that "missing one day won't hurt."
One of my New Year's resolutions for 2014 was to write daily. I'm happy to report that I only missed a total of three days in 2014. I'm currently on a 250-day writing streak, and it's become kind of addictive [edit: at 812 now, a year and a half later].
