I used to exercise twice per week. When the day came, it was easy to skip because there were still five days in the week to make it up. Of course, that led to skipping so often that I wasn’t exercising at all.
36 days ago, I started exercising and stretching daily. I’m shocked to look back and see that I’ve only skipped six days—an 83 percent success rate.
A daily practice creates a sense of urgency. Sure, I can put it off in the morning, and again in the afternoon. But by evening it will be stewing in me until I get it done.
