As human beings we love habits, routine and many of us have predictable patterns.
Maybe your habit every morning is a ritual cup of coffee, ordering the same meal for lunch every day, staying up late or even smoking.
Everything you do consistently is a habit.
Some habits such as going to the gym is a healthy habit, but not all habits are good ones.
More negative habits such as smoking or binge-watching TV may be doing more harm than good.
Habits take time to develop but also take just as much time to be broken and require you to follow 3 steps.
Step 1 - COMMIT
Commitment is powerful! You have to go grab a pen and paper and write down exactly what your goal is. Then write down why you should stop doing this habit, and make the list as long as you can.
Step 2 - Create a plan!
Without a plan, old ways will quickly creep back in. You need to create a plan with action steps as well as reasons and ways you need to remember to stick to the plan when things get tough.
Write down exactly how you plan on achieving it. Your plan has to be specific, measurable, and timed. You need to know exactly how you’re going to break the connection to the habit and set a deadline for when that has to happen to hold yourself accountable.
Step 3 - Identify your triggers!
Every habit starts with a trigger in your brain. Maybe stress causes you to reach for another cup of coffee or a cigarette. Instead go for a walk or find a breathing routine you can do.
The first step in overcoming your repetitive habits is to recognize the triggers that lead to them so that you can change them!
Track your habits for a few days and track facts such as
Take note of these triggers and make a plan to detour your thought process to something else other than your habit!
This will not be easy but being consistent and committed will lead to change and healthier habits!
