Start Low, And Go Slow.
The excitement of chasing BIG New Years Resolutions can be challenging to manage. Our ability to achieve will depend on how sustainable our pace is. It reminds me of the tale of the tortoise and the hare 🐢 🐇...or the phrase, "Life is a marathon, not a sprint." And we can't sprint marathons...trust me, I've tried and failed 🤦♂️ 😂.
Over the holidays I listened to the book "Can't Hurt Me" by @davidgoggins. The book is really all about #ENDURE . An analogy he used about goal setting stood out to me, and I think may resonate with others working toward #NewYearResolutions .

"We all need small sparks, small accomplishments in our lives to fuel the big ones. Think of your small accomplishments as kindling. When you want a bonfire, you don’t start by lighting a big log. You collect some witch’s hair—a small pile of hay or some dry, dead grass. You light that, and then add small sticks and bigger sticks before you feed your tree stump into the blaze. Because it’s the small sparks, which start small fires, that eventually build enough heat to burn the whole forest down.”

So, today's #HolidayHustleHealthChallenge is to break down your big goals into smaller goals. Make these goals action-based. For example, if you have a goal of weight loss, the action of working out consistently will help. So set a weekly goal of how many days/week you want to exercise. #StartLowAndGoSlow .
