I’m notoriously bad at not modifying my environment! Both steps can be challenging. My office can get quite hot and sometimes I have to sweat quite a bit before I get to the noticing part. Then getting to the opening the window part can be quite hard as well, especially if I’m in the zone! Who wants to open a window when you can sweat and keep working?
I’m getting better at it as I get older, and feel so proud of myself when I do. Possibly more proud than I ought to be, but I say, take the wins where you can get them!
