Change Just One Habit #070

This week, we’re talking about the power of habits in your life, and I want to encourage you to change one negative habit into a positive one. We’ll discuss different types of habits you can choose to change, and how you can best succeed when you set out to change one.


Let’s discuss some ideas for ways to challenge ourselves to do better in one of these categories:


  1. Health and Wellness
  2. Relationships
  3. Work
  4. Spiritual Life

Then, let’s talk about some ways to increase our chances of succeeding in changing our habits. These include:

Hold yourself accountable.

Find a way to include others in your new habit so you will feel pressure to continue.

Set a time limit on your personal challenge.

Especially when we feel it is hard and overwhelming, setting a time limit on the challenge can encourage us to keep it up until it gets just a little bit easier.

Use the word “BUT” to control negative thoughts.

Allow yourself to be negative if you must, but don’t stay there. Add the word BUT to the end of your negative thought and turn it into a focus on the positive.

Get rid of temptations and distractions.

Make your new habit, by default, the “easiest” thing to do. Make breaking your new habit very inconvenient.

Track your progress.

Whether it’s keeping a journal or crossing days off the calendar, having a tangible way to see your progress will encourage you to continue.
