How long does it take to get past or through an old habit. How about forming a new habit! Maybe a transition from one to the other is as easy as finding something that helps change that habit. Setting the time line for this might be part of the key!
Some other ideas of Habit Setting or Changes to Existing Habits can be found – if you dig deep enough!
From the works of James Clear an idea that is interesting:
Reminder. Routine. Reward.
- Reminder (the trigger that initiates the behavior) Going into a kitchen!
- Routine (the behavior itself; the action you take) Stopping at the the fridge (opening the door – there’s nothing in the fridge)
- Reward (the benefit you gain from doing the behavior) Finding something good to eat, not unhealthy choices.
Looks like I’m really stretching here, but it does make a person think about some of your “habits”. We do them so seamlessly. So, an attempt to use these 3 R’s in order to reset some “habits” that will help me clean up some eating and fitness goals. Maybe I’m waaay off base! Never know until you try!!!
Being that is close to the new school year, there’s no time like now to work on these things.
Setting some clear and solid ideas of what I want to do in a number of areas will hopefully help me achieve the results I’m hoping for. As I have read, vague promises will never lead to clear results.
Now that’s deep! I guess I’ve got some work to do. In 42 days which is the Thanksgiving weekend, I shall see if there are results and revisit this post.
