I found 30 Days to Change on Pinterest. I think this is very easy to do, and I started it today. Here are the rules (and I will add what I am doing as It goes on).
Day 1 – 5 Realize your motivator and harness it. Make 1 change in habits or rituals. (eat a healthy meal, read for 30 minutes etc…) Do this for all 5 days.
I have chosen to do the following: read for 60 minutes, eat more veggies & fruits and to walk what is required of me each day. These steps are chosen by the app Carrot. Doing more than required is a bonus.
Day 6 – 10 Establish your 1 habit into a ritual. Get it done every day no matter what. Next add one more ritual to your day. (Study , go to the gym, go to sleep early).
I will add to the above items…turning off any electronics by 10:00 pm. I need this time to meditate and relax so I can sleep.
Day 11-15 For these days you will want to continue all of the changes you made above but you will want to do them consistently so they will turn into rituals.
Hopefully the following items will turn into a ritual. I look forward to see how I do at this point. I will write another entry to let you know how I am going.
Day 16-20 Now take away a negative within your life. (Get rid of a toxic relationship, watch less tv etc….)
Stop emotional eating (this is usually chocolate, ice cream and other junk food). Find another way to deal with this pattern. I have to have faith in myself.
Day 21-25 Take away one more negative in your life while continuing to implement the rituals you have for yourself. You will start to see your days changing more and more.
I tend to spend money when I am bored. I need to get out of this habit, because I have debt that I would like to get rid off. I also have dreams that I want to achieve, but this will take a lot of money.
Day 26-30 You should be at the point where your days ran differently, you’re sensing a sense of direction and change within yourself. Your habits and changes you made are now a part of your daily routine. It is time to take away or add whatever routine you want next. You’re on your own.
It will be nice to see if I have kept this going for the whole money. I need to have faith that I can reach all of these goals no matter how I am feeling. I want to change my life and I thought this would be a good way to start.
I do hope someone who is reading this entry will join me on my journey.
