It will feel better, later

Nearly every time I try to do something that will make me better – read, exercise, meditate, among others – I can feel the resistance pop up and find out if there’s a way I can postpone it. There’s so much going on right now. Wouldn’t it be better if I did it later?

I felt that voice this morning as I thought about switching on Headspace to meditate.

I did feel busy. I decided to do it anyway.

And, 15 minutes later, I wondered why I ever had second thoughts. I felt so much better. And, I know that happens every time I meditate.

So much of being happy is doing things that you know are good for you by pushing the resistance away and saying, with conviction – “It’ll feel better, later.”

  1. This is true for me too Rohan. While it is important to acknowledge our feelings they often pass and we shouldn’t let them get in the way of what we know needs to be done.

  2. it reminds me of Gandhi’s quote:

    “I have so much to accomplish today that I must meditate for two hours instead of one.”
