Forming Healthy Habits

Habits are behaviors we do so often that we typically don’t even realize we’re doing them – such as brushing our teeth, saying thank you, or grabbing a coat before going outside. 

Like most things in life, the more you do something, the easier it becomes.

So, if there is something you’ve been wanting to tackle, now is the time.

Every task (even the scary ones) have the potential to become a habit if you want it bad enough.

How and Where to Start

What option do you think sounds easier and more fun?

1) Cleaning your entire kitchen in one afternoon. 

2) Setting aside 10 minutes daily to tidy up various areas of the kitchen that need attention. This can be anything from cleaning one counter or unloading the dishwasher. 

Breaking up large goals into 10-minute tasks can help make any activity feel much less intimidating.

Simply setting aside a few minutes a day to quickly tidy up areas of your home that need it, can help prevent huge messes from pilling up.

Log Success

When we have so many things going on, we can often forget to acknowledge and appreciate those small wins.

All milestones, both large and small, deserve to be celebrated.

Writing down and checking off all the tasks we completed that day can help remind us how hard-working we are.
