Find The Meaning
What do you want, and why do you want it?
Whether you want to start waking up an hour earlier or learn a new language, it’s so important to remember your why.
Let’s talk about waking up early.
Chances are, there is a pretty good reason behind that want.
Maybe you want more time in the morning to relax or work on hobbies before work, or maybe you’d rather start working earlier so you can have your afternoons and evenings free to spend with family.
When times get tough, remembering your reasons why can help keep you motivated.
Make a Plan
Once you’ve determined what you want, it’s time to think about how you can get there.
Creating a plan can help you stay on track and prevent unnecessary guesswork. Planning out your days/weeks in advance can help bring a bit of the future into the present.
Continue to Move Forward
Even the most well-thought-out plans don’t always turn out as anticipated.
Working towards your new habit for just one minute a day is far better than skipping a day altogether. All you can do is take one step in front of the other.
Change Along the Way
Whether you realize it or not, we change a little every day.
We learn. We grow. We thrive.
As time goes on, you may feel like a certain habit/activity no longer aligns with your goals and lifestyle.
Adjusting your routine is not the same as quitting. It all comes down to listening to your body and giving it what it needs.
