Make the most of your five minutes

Five minutes is such a short part of your day if you think about it. And five minutes a day can be all it takes to achieve that goal you’ve been putting off for years.

If you want to make lasting change, do something that contributes to that change daily, no matter how small. We sometimes forget how even five minutes of something everyday adds up.

If you get in the habit of doing something at the same time every day, say when you wake up, you get into a streak and it becomes a habit that is easier to maintain.

Even if you just promise yourself you’ll do five minutes, sometimes you feel motivated to do more, and that’s when the magic happens.

Just make sure that what you are doing is at least somewhat challenging. Make sure that you are stretching yourself, make sure you make the most of your five minutes.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
