“Good habits are powerful … once you set them in motion, you start to change your life without any additional effort” – Alex Korb PhD
Times of change are the perfect moment for establishing new habits, so before you settle into an unintentional new routine for this time – get intentional about it! Choose ONE HABIT that would have a big impact on your life if it was to become an autopilot behaviour, a part of who you are.
Habits are built through repetition so it can be helpful to attach the habit to specific times of day or other triggers you can rely on: Is it exercising when you wake up everyday? Is it planning tomorrow’s tasks before you stop work for the day? Is it meditating before bed? The options are endless!
Stick to one for now, because this time can be a bit overwhelming and the success of establishing one great habit well will fuel more changes than if you struggle with ten! It helps with motivation to focus on why you chose the habit. Also, keep the habit small and easy to achieve at first – you get a burst of happy chemicals every time you succeed and it drives you forward.
