Stress, Habits & Healthy Aging

Why Do You Need to Create New Habits?
While you are busy creating goals for yourself, there is one thing you need to remember – habits are more important than goals. Why? Because it is hard to complete tasks required to achieve a goal if you have not formed a good habit first.
You need habits to gain focus and momentum, improve your daily life, reduce stress and get the willpower you need to accomplish more in your life.
Start with One Small Habit
When you create new habits, there are two important things to remember:
1. You should start with just one habit at a time.
2. You want to start small.
You may have a vision of these complex and intricate lifestyle habits you want to develop one day, which is great! But it is difficult to keep up with more difficult and elaborate habits when you haven’t started with the simple ones.  The idea is to reduce stress and feel great with one simple habit at a time.
It is like running a mile versus running a marathon. If you can’t run a mile, how can you run a marathon? Start with the mile first, or in this case, the small and simple habit.
How to Choose Your First Habit
Deciding on new habits to form in your life is all about what you can achieve, and what you want the end result to be. When choosing a good habit to start with, choose something you can do today, right now. It can be making the bed, flossing twice a day, making your own breakfast instead of picking up donuts on the way to work. These are very simple habits, but ones that ultimately will do wonders for you.
Learning New Habits
You will come to a point when you want to develop other healthy habits, which is great news. Just make sure your previous new habits have become, well, habitual! These should be things you do every day, without really having to think about it.
As a good place to start, try to do each habit for at least 30 days before moving on to the next one.
Is Your Habit Not Working?
Don’t feel like you have to stick to a new habit forever if it isn’t working for you. Just remember WHY you want to change or stop it. It shouldn’t be because it’s too hard or you just don’t want to do it anymore, but because you don’t feel it is benefiting you like another habit in its place would. This is what you need to remember.
Life can feel like white water rafting and our habits help us hang on through the rapids and calm waters.
