Habits are funny things. They can be beneficial, destructive or even neutral. It is all so circumstantial.
I have a few “bad” habits and a few good ones.
Have I ever taken some good ones too far? I remember there was a time when I took exercise very seriously. I was even approached about training to compete by probably the best trainer in the city. I worked out almost every single day at least once. So let’s say I worked out about 6 days a week which included 3-5 days of weight training and a few cardio classes like spin, kickboxing, HIT and things like that to get the metabolism amped up.
And on top of that I ran 2-5 miles 3-4 days a week. Mind you even then I was not cover model physique but I felt great. My mental health was phenomenal, probably the best of my life. I was truly happy with my physical health and mental acuity. I still had issues but those two things felt the best levels, like all green in Sims or something like that.
Did it go to far? My grandmother used to think so and worry, but otherwise no I can’t say it did. Maybe the one instance was when I was trying to up my game and started taking ephedra which was a legal supplement then. That stuff works, but after I had a few episodes of feeling heart palpitations I decided it was not worth it. And that was the only thing, but I can’t say I haven’t done other dangerous diet pills, while not having a healthy lifestyle so yeah, no.
I want to learn to control my habits more is all I guess I’m trying to say here. Get some new, healthy habits and maybe even revisit my mental habits, my knee jerk reaction habits, my judgemental habits.
Aren’t habit funny?
