What kind of person are you? It’s the habits you keep that will give you away every time. If you identify as a person who lives a healthy lifestyle; but don’t work out, drinks too much, and eats mostly fast food – you are not living a healthy lifestyle, are you? Habits dictate how we live, they are the workhorses of everyday life. The goal for intentionally setting up personal habits is to simplify life. When it comes to deciding which habits to keep, is a deeply personal affair. Before you can decide which habits are serving you well depends on who you are now and your end goal.
There are five steps that anyone can use at any time to establish productive habits:
- Identity Work: Who are you? Who do you want to be?
- Lifestyle Choices: How do you want to live your life?
- Name the Goal: What do you want to achieve?
- Developing Systems: What habits need to be set?
- Momentum & Joy Are habits building momentum? Do they bring you joy?
Here is the template if you think it will help you do this work
There is no reason to wait any longer to grow into the person you want to become. This is your one beautiful life, live it the way you want. Allow yourself to be inspired and be inspiring to those around you. Believe you can do this and you’re already there…
