Making Habits Stick
A patient of mine asked me how I get up so early (5am) to meditate and then go to the gym. My response was that I created habits. I performed what I wanted over and over again until it became ingrained into my body to do it.
Was it hard initially?….of course! Who actually enjoys waking up that early? Not me at first. Over time, I started to appreciate the quiet time while I was meditating and my drive to the gym when no other cars are out. I started to take joy in getting my workout done early. I stacked the positive things until my body was looking forward to getting up.
Here are some tips to help you create and stick to your habits. Remember that it may be a challenge at first but it does get easier.
