“Tension is a habit. Relaxing is a habit. And bad habits can be broken, good habits formed”-Dale Carnegie @DaleCarnegie #habits #mentalhealth #purpose #consistency #accountability

Everything we do has a purpose.  We run because we enjoy it or maybe we are trying to get healthier.  We work with the purpose to fulfill our dreams or make money.  We get tense because we are stressed.  We bite our nails when we get anxious.

The challenge this week is to write down 1 habit you want to change or start.  Then work to keep whatever the new habit is consistent.  Perhaps day 1 you write down or tally when the habit you want to change comes up.  Maybe the next day you catch it and replace it with something else.  Example: If you want to stop biting you nails; when you are about to: instead take a deep breath and put your hand on your lap.  See how long you can keep up with the change, track it if you want.  If it breaks one moment, don’t sweat it, try again next time!  The more consistent you are, the more it will stick whether it’s instituting a good habit or breaking a bad one.
