A few days back I clocked up my 100th day of cycling to and from work.
It’s a fairly minor milestone, and the journey is only 3.5 miles, but nevertheless, it’s proved to me that cycling is a very feasible alternative mode of transport for this purpose.
As well as adding to my daily exercise, giving my lungs more fresh air, and saving fuel, money and emissions by not using a car.
The pluses are plentiful.
It’s also reminded me how powerful regular habits are.
Whether daily yoga and gratitudes, publishing a new piece of writing every 36 hours, walking on average over 10k steps a day, and making photographs at least a couple of times a week, the benefits of this regular discipline are profound for me.
And each of these activities support and feed into each other.
Once you have one or two positive habits, it’s much easier to build more, as you know how it feels and why it works.
They beaver away in the background, steadily and almost imperceptibly, until you realise you’ve been doing them not just for days, but for weeks, months and years.
How about you? What regular habits and disciplines help enrich your life – photography related or otherwise?
