Habits are things we do daily. We all have things we do every day – we eat, sleep, brush our teeth. We already have habits.
We can look at our habits and phase out the unhealthy ones – anything that is not loving for us. And we can establish new, healthy habits.
Experts say it takes anywhere from 21 to 40 days to establish a new habit. The thing is, if we want to make it into a habit – we have to do it every single day. That is the important part. We make our habits day by day.
If we want to make taking a walk a habit, we have to get out there and walk. Every day. If we want to make eating healthy a habit, we have to do it every day. If we want to make meditation and prayer a habit – we have to do it.
We are perfectly capable of establishing new habits for ourselves – habits that help us love ourselves and our spirits, minds and bodies.
