Habits, everyone have it. Be it good or bad. How do you Form a Good Habit for yourself? Once we are able to build good habit for ourselves, it will benefit us in the long term.
After all, who doesn't want to have Good Habit.
Do you still remember your New Years Resolutions? How many of them have you put into practice?
Let me guess: Little to none of them.
And you’re not alone.
Good habits seem to be very hard to form while bad habits just sneak up on us when we least expect them. That’s how it feels, at least
But, guess what? Good and bad habits actually form the same way.
As a Certified Fitness Coach and 100% Vegan, let me give you some tips on how to form habits.
Pull the trigger
Habits start with triggers.
You feel stressed out? You’ll feel compelled to smoke a cigarette. You’re about to go to bed? You’ll have to brush your teeth.
These are simple triggers that initiate reactions. And like these triggers, you also have to identify specific triggers that can help you build better habits.
Ask yourself: How are you reminded of the habit?
Build a checklist
Generate a trigger by creating a checklist. All you need is a blank paper, a pen and some duct tape. You duct tape the blank paper to an open spot in your home, like your fridge.
Then, write the name of the habit that you want to form on top of the checklist.
Put some small check boxes on the left side of the paper with your target dates. These dates should reflect the frequency of the habits you want to build. For example, if you want to go to the gym once or twice a week, you need to write down the dates of your planned workout days for the next two months. You should have a total of 18 dates for that. Every time you go to the gym on your specified dates, you check off the box.
