We humans are creatures of habit, therefore developing good habits should be simple... right! Well, not always.
The problem is that we get very comfortable doing things the same way each and every day. We often absentmindedly stick to a daily routine without considering the consequence or effectiveness of it. Why change?
Unfortunately, not all of our habits are healthy, or good. If we are in the habit of coming home after work each day and reaching for an alcoholic drink to relax instead of getting on the treadmill to let off steam, it will adversely affect our health.
🔎 Identify the habit
💢 Make the decision, and then the commitment, to change
🚧 Discover your triggers and obstacles
🗺 Devise a plan
🚀 Employ visualization and affirmations
💙 Enlist support from family and friends
🙏🏼 Find healthy ways to reward yourself
The wonderful benefit of developing good habits is that after doing them repeatedly, they soon become automatic. Anything you do for a long while and consistently enough eventually becomes a habit, and once it does, you no longer have to put much effort into it. Such is the beauty of developing good habits!
Sometimes, life throws curve balls at you and we gotta do all we can to dodge, jump and face them head on. These curve balls will bring out a different side in you and the people surrounding you. The curve balls that life has thrown at me has made me stronger, has made the people around me stronger. Small, trivial things don't matter no more. What matters most is you making it through to the other end. Be strong. 😊 you've got this. Just remember, now matter how tough life makes it for you, you gotta smile through it all. 🌻
