    This is powerful information. It’s both and simple. Many things are simple but not easy. This manages to be both.
    The hardest part is in catching the moment when the impulse to act arises. They do come. And if they’re not grabbed by the body and put into action IN THAT MOMENT, they pass. That’s the bad news. The good news is the impulse will always come again. Notice it, seize it, and MOVE! Move toward wherever the desired habit dictates you head. Walk to the kitchen, pick up the blender and open the lid. THEN go to the fridge for the fresh fruits and veggies to make that smoothie. Walk over to the closet that needs cleaning and open the door. THEN pull something – anything – out to begin. If you take the second step that’s fantastic. If you only do the walking toward, well that’s fantastic too. Mr. Bundrant is right and he’s generous in the sharing of this information. Just because something sounds obvious doesn’t mean it’s not powerful. Simple ideas usually turn out to be the best ones in life anyway.

    Hi Vickie.
    You’re welcome. This is one of those ‘things’ for me and I’m also set to make a change. I read the part I added a few days ago; I liked the sound of it, especially together with what Mike wrote. I hope we both get our new habits to be ‘just regular stuff that gets done automatically.’ Good luck!
    Cheryl
