2 Thoughts on Habits
1. Missed your habits once, or twice in a row? Start small.
One of the best ways for me to get back on track after slipping a day or two is by starting small, again.
There are just days that I have unexpected guests or errands to attend, or I got caught up in work. Whatever reason it may be, I try to get back at doing my habits 70-90% of the time, even in small ways.
It's not the individual impact of missing your schedule that's a big deal. It’s the cumulative impact of never getting back on track. If you miss one workout, you don't suddenly feel more out of shape than you were before.
For that reason, it's critical to stick to your schedule, even if it's only in a very small way.
Don't have enough time to do a full workout? Just squat.
Don't have enough time to write an article? Write a paragraph.
Don't have enough time to do yoga? Take ten seconds to breathe.
2. Design your environment
One of the favorite habits I built last year, is reading. I owe this to the constant iteration of my workspace.
Previously, I had my books in the other room. Then placed them below my desktop monitors. Now, they have their well-deserved shelf just beside my desk. So whenever I need to shift my focus or take a long break, I just grab a book and read.
My humble workspace
Another great way to overcome this hurdle and get back on track is to design your environment for success.
Most of us acknowledge that the people who surround us influence our behaviors, but the items that surround us have an impact as well. The signs we see, the things that are on your desk at work, the pictures hanging on your wall at home … these are all pieces of our environment that can trigger us to take different actions.
