Our daily lives are filled with habits, some good and some bad. Fortunately, bad habits can be broken and be replaced with good habits that work for your benefit instead of to your detriment.
The best way to break a bad habit, or form a good one, is to change your mindset. The secret to changing your habits is to making the active decision to change an believing that it will work.
Each habit takes the daily choice to believe that you will keep succeeding as well as the stubborn quality to withstand temptation. If you have a doubt that you will fail, you need to work to defeating that thought. Believe that you can do what you’ve set out to do, truly believing it, means that you are half way there.
Want to run a marathon? Believe that you can. Want to stop smoking? Believe that you can. Want to write a book? Believe that you can.
After you’ve determined your success, make the next move towards this goal, and take the first step to making it happen. Want to run a marathon? Walk more today then you did yesterday. Want to stop smoking? Don’t buy any cigarettes. Want to write a book? Decide on a topic and write the first page.
Making a habit of lounging in front of the TV every night will negatively affect your physical health. You should try going to the gym after work and once you make a habit of it, it will be easy. When your physical health improves, your mental health will also benefit.
If you have a habit of letting your stress from your work life overflow into your home life, your home life will begin to suffer. You need to find ways to de-stress after work and enjoy your home life. Workplace wellness programs can help you in this area.
