This is something I tell my patients all of the time, other than to be an advocate for your own health.
In order for you to get better at anything in life, you need to be working at it little by little every day.
That’s not to say there isn’t such a thing as a ‘rest day.’ But if you think of it in a way that will promote progress, consistency is key.
For instance, if you want to become stronger and more mobile, doing a yoga class or going to the gym once a month isn’t going to get you any closer to your goal of becoming the next James Bond.
You need to work at it and know that you are making a lifestyle change.
This is a concept that can be used in all aspects of our lives. If you are trying to save up for a house, car or retirement, only putting money into a savings account once will not help you in the long run. However, if you consistently put money into that account it will start to grow into a pretty nice retirement plan.
Same thing goes for if you want anything else in your life, you need to be consistent and work at it little by little everyday.
The things that are worth while waiting for, do not happen over night. Keep working at it and you will see the progress, guarenteed.
