Making New Good Habits was one of my goals this year.
Habits will make or break our existence here on Earth.
Build good habits and it will bear you success.
Develop bad habits and it will bring you destruction.
Currently, the one new good habit I created was to avoid softdrinks.
The 1st week was hard. I nearly succumbed to the temptation of forgetting to make this new habit.
But I persevered. Now, it has been 4 months since I last drank softdrinks.
What I’ve learned:
1) You need a strong reason to create that new habit.
My reason was I wanted a healthy way of living. Two, I wanted to lessen the destruction of caffeine on my teeth.
2) Visualize the benefits. Focus on it.
Each time the temptation presented itself, I focused on my big reason and the benefits of doing so. As a result, I drank more water in my entire life so far.
3) Replace the bad habit with a good one.
So instead of softdrinks, I now drink water. The bonus is I get to save money when I eat out.
So there, what new habits have you formed?
Get started and track your progress. Declare to the world you are building new, powerful, positive habits.
