If you don't feel great about your current habits, you're not alone.
Most of us know what we could do that would help us feel better. The thing is, we're not actually doing it. Rather than biting off more than you can chew, overdoing it and then giving up, or never starting in the first place, try a micro-habit to build the skill of changing your habits.
Even when there's a lot of uncertainty in your life and multiple demands on your time, there's some sort of helpful habit you can do, even for 30 seconds. If you go past your edge you may go into overwhelm and shutdown. That's not what we want. Is there one thing you can commit to without giving up?
To establish new habits: Take one simple, doable action. Find the edge you can play that is small enough to override your resistance without tipping into shutdown.
Show up for yourself for 30 seconds - 2 minutes every day.
- Pick something you enjoy. Find power in that action.
- Repeat it over and over.
- Tie your new habit to a habit you have already established.
- Write down which one you will practice, and what the trigger will be in your daily routine.
- Put self-care first, otherwise can be on the back burner forever.
- Do less, but do it every day: 30 seconds - 2 minutes daily.
- Celebrate little wins!
Comment below what your micro-habit will be for this week.
