It took me many years to realize that Practice is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress and nourish my everyday success and wellness. Indeed, in my life to help me improve my health and well being it was most likely the single most overlooked step.
I sense many people like me (and perhaps you as well) have bought books, attended seminars and never practiced what we learned on an ongoing basis. We just keep acquiring new information and not practicing.
I believe learning from other people’s experience is a great way to shorten the time needed to master a skill like reducing personal stress or finding ways to simplify healthy eating habits but it is only half way there. Since once you (or I) have tools to create a skill and get results we need to practice, practice and practice the knowledge till it is truly learned and lived.
Today I recommend you learn from my mistake and stop focusing so much on learning and start focusing on practicing.
Choose Your Action Step
If you have a favorite wellness book or program you have studied but not practiced then I recommend you make a commitment to yourself to get out the book or program and choose one step and decide over the next 21 days to practice, practice, and practice the step till it is a part of your everyday life.
If you don’t have a particular book or program in mind then request a copy of my free e-workbook 19 Steps to Reduce Stress and Increase Success and Well Being – read through it – choose a step that impacts you – and decide over the next 21 days to practice, practice, and practice the step till it is a part of your everyday life.
What step are you going to put into practice today?
