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.”
