Being less anal about habits

Almost forgot to write today!

It's important to shift my thinking about habits from "and" to "or." 

Sometimes I get into this fit of thinking, man, if I don't meditate AND exercise AND write AND read in the morning, then how the hell am I supposed to have a good day!? But that just isn't realistic. Not all mornings are perfect and they never will be. For exercise, sometimes I think yeah, I exercise when I feel good AND I'm not tired AND I'm not hungry AND I have a lot of time. We all know that means it's never going to happen.

So I'm working on shifting those and's to or's. And that makes all the difference. If I wait until I have perfect circumstances to do the thing that I want to do it'll never happen.
