“Easy to do and Easy not to do.” (The Slight Edge)
Have you heard the saying, “Easy to do and Easy not to do”(The Slight Edge)? The first time I read this it simply blew me away especially as I was thinking about making changes for my health, my wellbeing, my fitness, my life. All the changes that I have made were very easy to do and yet there were also very easy not to do.
Making changes like adding water is very easy to do and at the same time it’s easy not to do. The thing whether we do this or don’t do it we will not see a difference right away. Yet over time (the power of compounding) it becomes very obvious the result. In the example of drinking water if we don’t do it we become dehydrated, reduce our thinking power, reduce our energy, and bring on disease. Yet we don’t see it happen right away.
Same is true with the attitude toward the food we eat. It is very easy to eat REAL FOOD and also very easy not to eat REAL FOOD! We can tell ourselves all kind of stories on why we don’t eat REAL FOOD like no time, don’t know how ect. The health problems won’t show up for years and years so we aren’t realizing the impact of that choice. And there is always an impact on the choice!
I could go through all 6 Pillars of Health and the same would hold true.
To really grab hold of the easy to do you must be able to create the small wins to create the habit! For example, adding water to your day, eating REAL FOOD meals, adding exercise a number of times per week to name a few. Just start with one thing that would be easy to do and take the action to do that. Once you have that habit firmly in place take the next idea you want to add into your positive habit tool kit and do that, rinse and repeat.
