We are in the habit of making New Year’s resolutions. What about starting right now before the end of the year to make some small changes? The excuse I hear at this time of the year is that “It’s the holidays”. But have you ever noticed that more people get sick after the holidays? All that overeating puts a burden on the immune system. We forget about going to the health club because we are so busy going to all the parties and holiday events. Also we might be burning the candle at both ends and not getting enough sleep. All of these behaviors are really a result of our habits.
We basically have developed bad habits in our past, endorsed by television commercials, and think of the holidays as a time to indulge. “Everybody else does it, so why not me? I don’t want to miss out in all the fun and great food.” What we forget, in the moment, is how we will feel afterwards and the likely pounds that will be added to our frame. It’s instant gratification versus delayed gratification.
We need to ask ourselves, “Who is in charge, the impulsive child or the mature adult?”. Inside all of us is a child who lives with no vision and is all about momentary pleasures. The child does what feels good. If our child is in charge then we are going to participate in the holiday festivities with great gusto. If our mature adult is in charge then we are going to realize the only way to change is to sacrifice some of the momentary pleasures. Saying no instead of yes. Making a choice to engage in different behaviors, and making a decision to do something completely different.
If we want a change, then we need to look at our habits. We are run by habits. 96% of anything we do is run by unconscious habits. So when we decide to do something different, it is going to interrupt the pattern of habits or behaviors. This can trigger either excitement or anxiety depending on the habit we want to change.
I’d like to make it easier for you. I’d like to offer you an early holiday gift. What if all you had to do was follow a blueprint laid out for you? A daily guide to remind you to drink your water, exercise, meditate, etc. I am going to invite you to a free program I developed that has helped many people develop new, more productive habits leading to more positive, healthier behaviors. Once you perform the new habits from 30 to 66 days, they become second nature and you don’t have to think about them anymore.
The program revolves around the secrets of the Universal Laws and how to apply them so you can access the wisdom of the ages and live a life that flows. http://30lawsofflow.com/free-gift/
Every day for thirty days you just check your inbox and the reminders will be there for you, encouraging and supporting your mature adult who wants the change. New routines may feel difficult in the beginning but once the new behavior kicks in, you will have more new productive habits. This will give you a head start on the new year. Feel free to check out the other support programs at http://30lawsofflow.com/.
To your good health,
