Good habits can drastically improve the quality of our lives. Are you at the point of your life where you feel like you need to make some changes to improve the quality of your life?
Do you feel a bit lost and don’t know where to start?
Don’t worry. You are not the only person who experiences this. The good news is there are many ways you can go about instilling change to improve your life for the better.
I know CHANGE is difficult and changing bad habits into good habits can be quite challenging.
The fact is good habits are the essential ingredient to all success, while bad habits are a doorway to failure.
You may need to improve the quality of your life if you feel any of these:
- You find yourself feeling frustrated most of the time.
- You feel like you are repeating the same cycle every day after you wake up.
- You have no desire, energy, or enthusiasm for the future.
I know life’s challenges can feel overwhelming and frustrating at times, but without understanding what directions we want our lives to head, these challenges will feel all that more overwhelming to us.
We can improve the quality of our lives by making small changes to our daily routines by simply changing our way of thinking, behaviors, and habits.
These small changes may not seem like much at first, but over time they will build up to something great.
Sometimes when life doesn’t happen the way we want it to, we can feel disappointed, experience frustration, fear, worries, anger, and anxiety. All of these can cause us to lose our desire and fall back into our old habits.
By changing the way, we think, it changes our behavior patterns by turning those bad habits into good habits. As a result, we improve the quality of our lives on multiple spectrums.
So we have to eliminate bad habits and form good habits if we seriously want to improve the quality of our lives.
I know it’s easier said than done.
Also stop expecting to change your habits in just 21 days. According to a recent study, a daily activity like eating fruit at lunch or running for 15 minutes took an average of 66 days to become as much of a habit as it would ever become.
Forming good habits doesn’t happen overnight, not even in just 21 days. It takes a lot of time, dedication, willingness, and most importantly DISCIPLINE.
Not sure where to start?
You need not worry because I’ve compiled this list of 77 good habits to motivate, inspire, and empower you to make positive changes in the quality of your life.
Many on the list may seem like common sense, but in the fast-paced life of today’s society, it’s easy to forget how simple it can be at times to develop a good habit. You may be amazed when you incorporated a few of these good habits, just how much of a profound impact they can have on your life.
Sometimes the smallest changes can have the biggest impact on our lives.
“We are what we repeatedly do, Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit” – Aristotle
