3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Whilst mentally and spiritually I am happy with my progress and the disciplines I have in place, physically is another matter! With my Practice based at home and an abundance of creature-comforts, I only normally venture out for the Weekend Job and shopping, so lifestyle is rather sedentary.
Up to now this has not bothered me, but with the ageing process now beginning to make itself felt, the need for physical discipline is becoming more obvious. The only useful wisdom my mother ever taught me was simply "keep moving" - the body works on a "use it or lose it" principle. Whilst a happy mind goes a long way in maintaining the body, you do have to move it as well. The time has come to install some daily physical discipline.
It just so happens that I will be making a good start today as EVERYTHING needs cleaning, and I need to run errands, so I'll definitely be moving today! Outside of housework days I need a modified routine, which I will be thinking about today.
A physical routine also has "knock on" benefits for the mind, so it's a win-win step to make!
