Habits!! Why are bad habits so hard to break and good habits hard to commit to?
I’ll tell you, Path Of Least Resistance, at least that’s the only reason I can come up with. It’s so much easier to do the things that seem to be simple, without resistance. It’s so much easier to hit the snooze button at 5 o’clock in the morning and go back to sleep than it is to get up and go for a morning run.. trust me, I know. My bed is so comfy and warm and it literally begs me to stay, but I made a decision that I would go for a run at least 3 mornings out of the week so my bed just has to let me go LOL!
That’s how it starts, with a decision, to just decide that whatever habit it is that you either want to break or create, you will do it (did that make sense to you?). I’ve read that it takes 30 days to either break or create a habit. 30 days! 4 weeks! 1 month! The way time is flying (we have less than 5 months left in this year, what?!?! 😲) that’s nothing, c’mon you can do that, I believe in you!!
The first ten days will probably seem like the hardest thing in the world to do, but DON’T QUIT!! You made a decision, remember? Just 20 more days!
The next 10 days will be a lot easier for you, I mean after all you did just put in 10 days, just saying.
The last 10 days!!! Boy, oh boy! Look at you, that’s home stretch baby. You got this. You have officially created or broke a habit. I’m so proud of you. I knew you could do this.
That’s not it, DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT go back to what you were doing before. Keep up the good work. Repetition can be either good or bad. You choose.
Welp, let’s create or break some habits, people!! Have a great day 🙂
