Q1 progress report

At the beginning of the year I wrote that, this year, I would like to build habits around the areas of reading more, cooking more, and stretching (at all).

Happy to report that I’m doing great on reading more, and I’ve definitely been consistent (if not improved) at cooking with some frequency.

Stretching, however, has not come together as a priority for me. Plainly, I’m just not doing it. OK maybe I did it (with intention) a few times, but it quickly fell-off my to-do list.

When I fail to develop a habit that I say I intend to develop, I often blame things like “available time” or “fitting into my routine,” but really I think it just boils down to how much I value a thing. You’d think that, were doing a thing to offer incontrovertible positive results, I would have no problem valuing it. Doesn’t seem to be the case, though. “Fit” (into schedule and routine) is such a big thing for me. Where do I put this? Where does it fit? What goes best before and after it?

Anyway I’m not stretching. Still want to.
