Make no mistake about this when you see anybody that's been successful with transforming their body and life, it was not diets and workouts that did this
It was transforming the mindset and the habits set, it's the only way real lasting change happens
Habits are an essential part of our daily lives. They are defined as a regular pattern of behaviour that is repeated over and over again, often without conscious thought. Habits can have both positive and negative effects on our lives, so it is important to be aware of the habits we have and how they influence our lives.
You can imagine that when i was over 330lbs in poor health and life in crisis my habits were not serving me in a positive way.
Habits can have a powerful influence on our behaviour. They provide us with a sense of structure and routine, which can make us feel safe and secure. Habits can also be beneficial as they make certain tasks easier and quicker to complete, such as brushing our teeth or taking a shower. This allows us to save time and energy for more important tasks.
However, habits can also be bad for our health. For example, the habit of binge eating/comfort/sedating with food or smoking/drinking can be very detrimental to our health. In addition, bad habits can be hard to break, making it difficult to make positive changes in our lives.
It is important to be aware of the habits we have and how they affect our lives. To cultivate positive habits, we should start by identifying our current habits and then assessing what we want to change. We can then set goals and create strategies to replace old habits with new ones.
You have to be 100% truthful with yourself though when setting about changing your habits.
One of the most important aspects of cultivating positive habits is consistency. To make a habit stick, we must be consistent in our efforts. This includes setting realistic goals and making sure we stick to the plan. We should also be mindful of the rewards we receive for completing our tasks. Rewards can be anything from a celebratory meal out to feeling a sense of accomplishment.
Habits can also be formed through peer pressure. We often adopt the habits of our friends and family, which can be both good and bad. While it can be helpful to have people around us who have similar habits, it is important to remember that we are in control of our own lives and decisions.
Know your circle of association, this was vital for me when I embarked on changing my life.
Finally, it is important to remember that habits can take time to form. We must be patient and persistent in our efforts. We should also be mindful of our progress and celebrate successes, no matter how small.
Habits play a significant role in our daily lives. They can provide us with structure and help us accomplish tasks more efficiently. However, it is important to be aware of our habits and how they affect our lives, both positively and negatively. By cultivating positive habits and being consistent in our efforts, we can make lasting changes and improve our lives.
