I have lost some of my enthusiasm for establishing the habit of daily exercise. It is easy for me, when stressed, to flip flop back and forth between agoraphobia and claustrophobia. Claustrophobia is more my natural state. I want out. I want the sky overhead. I want to have room to roam. I want to lose myself in my surroundings.
When I start to flip flop, I often get to the place where I feel that I have no safe place. Right now, that is where I find myself. No matter where I go I do not feel safe, so it is really hard to walk for a whole hour!
What I need to do is to recapture my enthusiasm. So, I am excited. Walking everyday really is wonderful. It makes me feel wonderful in so many different ways! I am going to keep walking everyday at 2:00 without fail. I am going to do my best to be mindful and to enjoy my walks. I am not going to let fear of the unknown keep me from establishing this habit!
