Creating a Habit
Creating a habit that will truly last.
I’m working on creating new habits all the time.
However, I work on one new habit at a time. I’ll master it before moving on to the next.
This is how I learn best – Focusing on changing one habit at a time.
Taking small steps to engrain a habit is how you become most successful.
Perhaps you want to create a habit to become more organized. Start small. Why not bring the mail in each day and sort it right then and there? Or if you have a more health-related habit in mind then start by taking a short walk every day or drinking more water.
My suggestion for you is to try each new habit for at least 30 days. Taking one small step at a time will enable you to see the difference it’s making. You may start to feel a little more organized and then less stressed. Or refreshed from your daily walk and water.
How do you create a habit? One at a time.
What new habit have you created lately?
Do you struggle with getting and staying organized?
Are you afraid to start an organizing project just to be overwhelmed or lose motivation in the middle, to be left with even more chaos? You are not alone. That’s the fear of most people who don’t have time to allot to a big organizing project.
