When motivation doesn't work, try downhill instead.

2021-09-17

Find the actions that you want to do, instead of forcing the actions you don't.

You want to lose weight, so you force yourself to count calories. Eat nothing. And feel miserable.

Or, you find that what you want is fellowship. You invite friends to meals, physically or digitally. Suddenly, learning to cook, maintaining a clean kitchen, and eating healthy are easy.

Instead of forcing calorie counting uphill, you roll the fellowship boulder downhill. Your other health goals are swept up with it.

What do you really want to do? Roll your hopes into your dreams and let gravity do the work.
