“Ready” Isn’t a Thing
Let’s just get to it.
The idea of being “ready” is unrealistic for making healthy choices as adults.
Because we can’t always be “ready.” And if we insist on waiting until we are, then we might be waiting forever.
When we’re planning to adopt healthy habits like exercising, training for a triathlon and eating right, this ideal state of being “ready” usually doesn’t come.
Instead, we have to start taking the actions we need to take, and from that comes the sense that we’re doing what we “should” be doing.
You’ve heard the expression “fake it till you make it,” right? It just means: Do the right thing, even if you don’t always feel like it.
Seriously. Do you miss work because you’re not mentally “ready” to face the day?
Do you tell the kids to drive themselves to school because you’re not “ready” to leave?
Of course not.
You do what you need to do, and before you know it, the chore is completed.
In the same way, start eating right and exercising today.
Do it again tomorrow. And the day after that.
Then, you’ll feel “ready” in no time!
