Writing your goals down means you are more likely to stick to it
“Write down clearly on clay tablets what I reveal to you, so that it can be read at a glance. Put it in writing, because it is not yet time for it to come true. But the time is coming quickly, and what I show you will come true. It may seem slow in coming, but wait for it; it will certainly take place, and it will not be delayed (Habakkuk 2:2-3 GNB)
So, i’m going to write down 8 (because it stands for new beginnings) good habits and put them out into the world so hopefully it strengthens my resolve and i follow through with achieving them
The good news is all of these habits can be helpful for you too;
1) Exercise regularly
I’m so talented at making excuses about not having time to exercise but i have decided to put my foot down and i have decided to start exercising. Mind you that doesn’t mean i am going to register in a gym or something but would at least be dedicating 30 minutes of my day to exercise.
2) Drink more water
People that really know me would know that i can’t do without a bottle of coke—bad habit yeah— well i decided to change that. Drinking water when i first wake and loading up throughout the day is going to be my first step. I would be sticking to a bottle of coke a week–baby steps people, baby steps—
3) Pay Compliments
In the words of Audrey Hepburn ” As you grow older you discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others”. Boosting the positivity of people around you is a wonderful place to begin.
4) 10-15 minutes quiet time
No phone, no laptop, no TV. Just yourself and a calm place to breathe, to contemplate your day and your ambitions. Just like meditation but a lot less confusing
5) Set online boundaries
I really need this one– i am a terrible procrastinator, but i am improving though by setting times to achieve tasks and allocating periods to check social media.
6) Eat more fruits
The reason for this one is pretty obvious, we can all use more vitamins and good health– but the how much is a little trickier! Taking an apple a day is a good start, fruit salads are good too.
7) Learn something new.
Setting yourself a new challenge can be really rewarding and can get your brain thinking in new ways. It could be a new hobby or even just something small like learning a new word everyday.
8) Make fewer excuses
One of the answers to success and achieving what you want is to focus on the abilities you do have instead of looking around and blaming other variables. You have to ignore that little voice in your head that says “i can’t do it”. Telling yourself that your goal isn’t possible because of this or that is the first step to failure.
Hopefully this list has inspired you to write down something and make small changes for the better too!
