A good habit is a behavior that is beneficial to one’s physical or mental health, often linked to a high level of discipline and self-control. As we grow up we’re being taught habits left and right, from our parents, peer groups, teachers, TV, social media etc. However not everything you see on TV is good for you, right?
Your habits = your lifestyle. You can’t stop going to the gym and expect your muscle to continue to grow or do a diet for 2 weeks and then go back to eating ice cream for dinner – you know it doesn’t work that way… Therefor your motivation for doing the new habit must come from within, if you want it to last. You must have a compelling want for this new habit more than the status quo.
Maybe you’re moving away from something (I don’t want to end up like my cousin) or moving towards something (I want to look like that)?
It doesn’t matter to get you started as long as your motivation is coming from a desire that you want things to be different.
