Health & Wellness
Ending the year on a positive note is an excellent way to bring in the new year. Let’s take this time to reflect on the last year. How much have you accomplished this year? Have you made your physical and mental health important? If you are not healthy then what do you have?
“Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.” – Warren Buffett. What does this mean? If a healthy mental and physical lifestyle was so easy then everyone would do it, RIGHT? What are some things you can do to help get in the right mind frame and space to do make changes that will stick?
Figure out the why behind how you developed the habit.
- Be honest with yourself
- Identify the cause
- Make a list of simple steps to change
- Remove the cause
- Replace the habit
- Make simple small changes at a time
- Allow slip ups
- Reward yourself for small successes
- Don’t give up
- CELEBRATE THE GOOD WITH THE BAD!
The worst quality you could have is not to be able to see your own flaws. You must be honest with yourself to know what to change. To identify what needs to change you have to identify the cause as well. Making a list of simple steps can be a simple task to keep you on track. Remove the cause of this bad habit. Replace the bad habit with a positive meaningful activity. Small changes at a time will help with obtaining a larger goal. Allow for slip ups, we can show up and try every day, but we are human. We will fail, we will lose motivation. We will sometimes need to be reminded of the larger goal we are working for. Don’t give up and CELEBRATE, CELEBRATE, CELEBRATE! Replace judgement with self-compassion.
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” -Jim Ryun
