Setting Up New Life Habits – Start NOW!

A part of personal development is setting up new habits for life that replace the old, ‘bad’ habits that waste our time.

Read as many articles as possible from sources of valuable information as you can.  By finding websites regarding some areas of interest, I now receive articles from time to time.  Reading these as they make themselves available, is a good reminder for me to stay on track.

Today a good one crossed my path and I want to share it here.  It is from BestSelfCo, and is titled 3 Powerful Ways To Break Bad Habits Once And For All.  Obviously it comes across as a ‘must read’ for someone who is striving for personal improvement!

This is a fantastic article, and by going to the links in the ‘post’ above there are great ideas to help!  The bad habits they use as examples are eating and smoking.  No surprises there!  I made notes from the article about breaking a bad habit.  Then I went ahead and made my own Quit Plan using the points in the article.  There! Attached below is my quit plan!  Made public so now I feel that the accountability space can be filled.

Quit Plan

It seems to make sense to utilise all the information possible to improve daily existence!  Especially when the information is FREE!  What is more – the information is available if one would just seek it, instead of playing cards on the computer!  One of the habits I intend to break is wasting time playing games.

Upon returning to the initial site during an email to share the info, there was time for another link. This one talked about the mindfulness required to quit a habit .   Another powerful learning opportunity regarding the neurological side of our behaviour.  Again this man uses the example of quitting smoking, but it will apply to anything assumably.

Setting up good habits to live by seems to be a great idea for everyone at any stage.  By being objective, standing back and looking in on our lives bad habits become apparent.  A simple choice to negate these habits, however small they may be, will empower one by creating an achievable milestone.  One down – what’s next?
