I don’t exercise!

 

 

NOW THAT I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION.

How old are you? You don’t exercise? Say that again! Have you been living in another country?

I am a 58 year old man, living in Manhattan. New York City. United States of America.

I do not follow politics, I’m not religious. I live alone and I like it. So what do I do?

I work out. I stretch and breathe and meditate regularly. I cook and eat healthy foods. I’m still learning the saxophone and guitar. I love to sing. I try to mind my own business. Basically I take care of the only person I am truly responsible for. Me. Selfish? I should hope so.

Did you say you don’t work out? What do you do?

 

One Day at a Time!

One day at a time is a life saver. I don’t have to know how everything is going to turn out. I just have to breathe. I don’t really have to do that! It just happens. Wow, that is all I do, just breathe. If I do nothing else then I am still OK.

The great thing is, I don’t have to do anything. Nothing has the “have to” prefix, for me. Absolutely nothing! If I think I have to do something, I just change the wording for a more positive result. For example, if I think “I have to do something”, being mindful, I am aware I’m thinking that and I stop and make an adjustment to “I want to do it”. It works! I know what you’re thinking. What if I really, REALLY don’t want to do it? Guess what? I just don’t do it. Problem solved. I know there are people reading this who are thinking that it is unreasonable to just “not do” something that might be very important to me so I say again. The other option is to change the wording to, “I want to do it”. It works. It’s really not that complicated.

I want to face the obstacles in my life!

Either I am able to change the wording to create a more positive feeling, or I don’t do it. The key is to be mindful and vigilant so I can catch myself in the moment. One Day at a Time!
