Do you want to know how to start new habits? Habits can either be a good thing or a bad thing depending on what kind of habits they
are. They can also seem to be very powerful and hard to get rid of. It is not as hard as you may think, but it can take some time before you turn things you start doing into a regular thing (a habit).
If you do not know how to start new habits until now I promise you that you will know in about 2-3 minutes :o)
Sounds good? Ok let`s go then!
What is the Best Way to Start New Habits?
The answer to how you start a new habit is simple.
You simply build up your habbit until it becomes stronger!
This is a technique that you can use for whatever habits you want to implement in your life and below I will give you an example with the habit of working out regularly.
Take working out for example. Let`s say you want to start working out 3 times a week. You want to do it on monday, wednesday and friday.
So you go to the gym on monday but on wednesday you feel tired and say to yourself that you going to stay home and rest this day… You think to yourself I do it next wednesday… this is a BIG MISTAKE!
What you really do here is building a habit of “giving up on your habit creation”
Everytime you do this the habbit of quiting gets stronger.
But if you go to the gym no matter what… even if you are really tired… Then you build up your new habit (that you want) to become stronger.
In the beginning it will be hard to get a new habit… But if you stick to your plan and carry through the first, second and third month…
After this you wont even think about going to the gym (or what ever habit you want to get) You will just do it!
Everytime you do something no matter if you feel like it or not you will build up your habit to get stronger and stronger.
It is just like the muscles you train in the gym, they will get a little bit stronger every time that you work out… But just a little bit every time…
But many small changes will by time add up to a BIG change!
Just remember that the same goes for everytime that you not carry through with your new habit… Everytime that you “skip” doing it because of some excuse you make up for yourself your habbit of “quitting” will get stronger.
Now you know how to start new habits!
It really is this simple and atleast I do not know of some better way of making a new habbit. If you know of another way that is better or atleast equally good please share it with us in the comment section.
hope this helps!
