3 Action Steps To End Bad Habits For Good

Habits, bad or good, develop over time. In other words, doing something once or twice doesn't constitute a life-change either way. If you've ever tried to end a "bad" one, you know that it can be challenging, to say the least. However, it's important to remember that it's not impossible! I find that focusing on bringing new, serving ways of doing things helps to diminish the desire to continue bad habits. For example, eating healthy and exercising might curb someone's appetite for smoking cigarettes. I also believe the following 3 action steps are necessary to end bad habits for good.

Just A Speed Bump…

Wow, I feel like it's been forever since I sat down to write a post! The out-of-state move has been a challenging time to say the least. But I'm back! Though I still have boxes to unpack and curtains to hang, I'm looking past the physical stuff for a bit to stare into my emotional self. Change is hard.

Do Something More

The other day my friend, D, gave me a really cool stainless steel coffee cup that has a detachable plastic sleeve on it. It also came with a dry erase marker. It appeals to my artistic, whimsical self, as well as my coffee side. On Sunday, I decided I would write something inspirational on the cup and think on it throughout the day. I decided on "Do"
