How are you with building new habits? People often delay this activity, they say “From tomorrow …” or even better “From Monday…”.
Do you get to know yourself? Read on.
Make a ROUTINE LIST to help you establish and maintain new habits on a regular basis.
Do you want to start your day with yoga? Do you want to expose yourself to cold? Put them on the list?
View your list every evening: use green color for completed tasks, red color for uncompleted.
You can also use this list to get rid of habits, such as “I want to stop drinking alcohol.” or “I want to stop eating sweets after lunch”.
Put the list on a visible place, this is the best way you remind your tasks during the day. Me, I use it as a bookmark in my journaling.
I also recommend: do not overwhelm yourself with too many tasks for the first time, start with 1 or max 3 tasks/new habits. Once you have mastered these habits, you can increase the number of tasks.
You can have more kinds of routine list for various time ranges – daily, for week, month or year. Just don’t overdo it. The list of routines is a helper rather than a poison.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Don’t evaluate one step, evaluate the journey. Don’t evaluate only yesterday action, evaluate the whole week or month! Look at your journey from a higher perspective.
Satisfying feeling can be brought by finding that your week or even month was really successfully. This founding can greatly encourage you, boost your confidence and strengthen you.
Don’t put too many demands on yourself. Despite the perfectionism itself, human doesn’t see own successes.
