Next time you’re at a pelican crossing, try this.

Press the button.

See the cars start to slow……..

And don’t cross till it beeps.

It feels like an eternity.

I have this most days when we take the dog to the park.

Youngest son is still learning to cross the road.

We’re teaching him to wait for the beeps, look both ways and then cross whilst continuing to look.

Every time I have a near overwhelming temptation to step out as soon as I see cars slowing or the lights changing.

Waiting for the beeps feels like an age.

But I bet there’s two to three seconds at most there.

It’s that difference to what we’re used to.

What we’ve done thousands of times and has become a habit.

But, when stop and think about it, isn’t anywhere near as much time and effort as it feels.

When we’re used to spending a couple of minutes on a meal, spending five seems a disproportionately long time.

When we’re used to just prepping, making, sourcing and / or getting out our food………

Doing the same and punching it into MyFitnessPal seems a massive effort.

Even though it’s usually 30 to 60 seconds once we’ve got used to it.

Potentially under 10 seconds if it’s something we’ve had before.

When we’re used to not spending any out of the 10,080 minutes in a week exercising……..

Even spending 20 or 45 of them doing a workout seems a massive I inconvenience.

Despite us being left with over 10,000 still.

We get it.

It can all “feel” a pain.

An inconvenience.

“Too much”.

But, actually, when you step back from that “feeling”……..

It’s rarely as big a deal as it might feel.

Much love,
