Restarting a (good) habit

When you’ve tried to restart a (good) habit so many times, you kinda get good at restarting the habit. It’s a shame that you need to restart it in the first place, but life always has a way of getting in the way.

It helps not to put too much pressure on yourself, and to focus on doing it right rather than fast. There’s no way you’ll be back at your natural pace when you start back, and that’s fine. Slowly but surely you’ll get there. Allow yourself the time and dedication to get back into the habit right.

The important thing is that you’re out there getting dirty, that you’re putting in the hard yards. Life’s too short to sit around in your PJs all day.

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.

Tim.
