A new week provides a new opportunity to start on a course of constructive habits. Stringing together a few days gives us the opportunity to string together weeks… Stringing together weeks gives us the opportunity to string together months… Then you have a habit. There is no magic solution, recipe or guru that can do this for you. You just need to begin.
Pick an area to start a new habit this week
- Get to the gym a certain number of days (schedule it now)
- Get more sleep (7 hours or more)
- Cut back on sugar
- Cut back on your social media time
- Show more gratitude
- Spend more time on mobility
- Drink more water
The choice is yours, so pick an area to work on and start making positive progress. The most important thing is that if you miss your goal then just begin again. Many people miss their mark and then allow the negative voice in their head to take control. Forget the negative self-talk and just start a new streak the next day. The truth is that you can clean the slate whenever you want. You are in control.
Have a great week!
