How Are Your Habits?

May 26, 2021

Every habit and capability is confirmed and grows in its corresponding actions, walking by walking, and running by running…therefore if you want to do something make a habit of it, if you don’t want to do that, don’t, but make a habit of that instead…..”   -Epictetus

This passage from The Daily Stoic (a book I’ve made a “habit” of reading every day since January 1, 2020), goes on to say that we are a product of what we repeatedly do, both the good and the bad.  So simple. So true.

When I started BeWell, I sat down and listed all the things I did–or didn’t do--on the daily: the practices that I knew directly affected how I felt each day.  I called it the Daily Healthy Habits. I didn’t adapt these habits all at once, and not one was an earth shattering revelation, but over time I understood that each one was an integral part of my feel-good formula.  Experience had taught me that miracle diets and quick fixes didn’t work, but making a commitment to practice good habits did work.  I wanted to share what I had learned with other women.  

Today, choose one healthy habit, something you’ve said you “should” do.  Maybe you’re trying to skip your afternoon diet soda or want to start taking a 15 minute walk around the block at lunchtime. Or maybe you want to journal before the rest of your house wakes up.   Do it.  Give yourself a thumbs up, and then be mindful to do it again tomorrow, and the next day.  Before you know it, you’ve gotten into a good habit.  Remember, it’s about progress, not perfection! 

Need direction? I can evaluate your daily habits and create a plan to help you stick with the good ones and ditch the bad ones.  I’d love to work with you!
