In the video, I talk about not feeling 100% today, but that I’m committed to staying on track. It feels good. So, by the time I am done with my walk, thinking and verbalizing what I am thankful for in my life, and then having a bit of breakfast I’m ready to attack the day. While I do not have quite as much energy as I did yesterday, I certainly have more now than I did when I woke up.
My concern, as I stated in the video, was staying committed to this new ‘morning walk/reflection’ time every morning for 30 days. I am concerned because I know myself, and I know about how many times I’ve started something that I know will be good for me, only to lose steam a week in and quit.
I found this article (http://www.prolificliving.com/blog/2010/08/03/beyond-first-30-days-staying-committed-to-habits/) to have some good advice, whereas the take aways for me are:
1 – Practice firmness and kindness with myself
2 – Let habits build on each other
3 – Reject the notion that I can’t do it, for whatever reason
and 4 (which isn’t listed) to enlist the support of others, which is why I’m sharing in the first place.
So, thanks for helping me along. I really appreciate it!
Do you know of other article or ideas on how best to keep/build momentum in the face of habit changing?
