From The CHAARG Community: Habits To Keep + Habits To Drop

Habits — we all have them! Some of them we love + others… not so much. A habit is defined as, “a routine or behavior that is repeated regularly + tends to occur unconsciously… ++ typically hard to give up.”

It’s so important to be aware of what our habits are, + what role they play in our lives. Yes, it may be hard to sustain or drop a habit — but it’s possible. One of the most important questions to ask yourself is “why do I want to build or drop this habit? In what ways will my life be changed because of the presence [or absence] of this habit?”

Also something to note — let go of the *all-or-nothing* mindset when it comes to habits. It’s really, really hard to change old patterns + conditioning! + it will take time! Start small, share on instagram or with a friend to keep yourself accountable + get support, leave yourself reminders, + only focus on one item at a time. You got this!
