Are you struggling to break bad habits?
I think Erasmus had it right when he said:
“A nail is driven out by another nail. Habit is overcome by habit.”
So, if you want to break bad habits you need to replace them with good habits!
As you know throughout the month of January we’re focusing on making small, healthy changes, with the end goal of improving our health and well being.
If you’ve been keeping up over the month you may have already made a number of changes!
Today’s challenge is to keep going with the changes you’ve already made
Endeavor to make your new changes ‘habit’ and gradually the bad habits will be removed or reduced from your life.
Think back over the month so far, and make a few notes:
- What’s been difficult for you?
- Have you noticed any improvements in your health?
- What are you really pleased about? What have you achieved?
- What would you like to achieve throughout the rest of the month?
It’s good to evaluate how you’re doing now. This will help you to re-focus if necessary, and when you see the improvements you’ve made, it will encourage you to continue.
Don’t disregard the smaller things either, any change for the better is wonderful.
Remember, “Habit is overcome by habit”. So, keep replacing bad habits, with good ones, and you’ll be well on your way to a healthier lifestyle.
