If you’ve been reading my posts you Know that I’m trying to re-design my life by becoming a better version of myself. I have learned that one of the best steps to change your life is to learn how to change your life habits.
Please don’t think I was in a path of self destruction…lol…but I do think that in order to be happier in my life there were certain habits I needed to get rid off and as I’m becoming more self aware, I was able to identified which habits were not helping me in this Journey.
Getting into new habits has been very challenging and since I know the struggle I thought I could share some tips to help you overcome those challenges and help you with your journey to becoming a better self as well:
Be Clear on Why?: This is the most important thing of making the step towards acquiring new life habits. For example: one of my new habits is to practice yoga 3 times a week and I want to do this because I want to look good and feel good. Don’t start a new habit just because it’s trendy and everyone is doing it. You need to be very clear and honest with yourself, this will help you stay focus and keep you motivated to acquire your new habits.
Create a support system: in my case my support system is my husband and I also have subscribed to a couple YouTube channels of people (which I call “Mentors” ) that motivate me through their videos. I watch motivational videos in the morning while I’m drinking coffee and gives me this I-can-do-it-all dose that It becomes additive but this could be one of the best addictions you could have 🙂
Take baby steps: this is something that I can’t stress enough. I think one of the main reason most of us fail at something is because we didn’t take baby steps. Take it from my own experience: I was addicted to drinking soda every day and every time I would make the decision to give it up abruptly, I would get so anxious and I would make stupid excuses like “i worked really hard today” I deserve one…or I’m so stressed out… maybe i deserve one soda… and would promise to myself that this would be my last one, but my cycle of drinking it would start all over again 🙁 … but when I started replacing soda a couple days out of the week with water and/or natural juices, it became easier to keep reducing the frequency little by little until I no longer felt the craving of drinking it.
Catch the Wagon or Start Again: there will be some instances where we will be not be able to make progress due to things that happen to us in life so don’t be afraid to catch the wagon again and continue from where you left off , or don’t be afraid start again.
so hope these tips can help you in the same they’ve help me so far. I wish you the best in your Journey to becoming a better version of yourself… Progress is always good…life is about improving and becoming a better person each day.
