When I am strong physically,
it helps me gain strength
in all the other areas of my life.
Therefore, exercise is a top priority and my keystone habit.
A keystone habit, according to Charles Duhigg, is a habit that starts a chain of other habits that improves one’s life. For example, exercising regularly influences my diet – I make better choices. I also sleep better. My family also tells me I’m more pleasant to be around. (I mean, really, how could I be more congenial than usual?)
Knowing that exercising is my keystone habit motivates me even more to maintain my regimen. It makes everything better!
