Take the Time to Build New Habits

Take the Time to Build New Habits from North Carolina Lifestyle Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

In this time of uncertainty, it is hard to think about the positives that come from this all. And sometimes not having a schedule or an agenda of things to do during the day can be the most depressing thing for people. If you follow me on my Facebook page you will have noticed that I am sharing online activities to pass the time. But today I am going to share how you take this time to build new habits. Creating new habits isn’t easy, believe you me there are so many times I have started only to stop. But, here are five simple hacks that will make it a little easier.  

Schedule It And Put It On The To-Do List

This is important. But I don’t mean it by scheduled out every portion of your day. Just sit down every morning and make a list of a few things you might like to get done during the day. Sometimes we forget to do that new thing we were trying. It could be something as making sure you go outside to breathe in the fresh air. 

Schedule your new habits or make them part of your daily to-do list until they become something you do automatically.

Make It Public and Be Accountable

Let family and friends know what new habits you’re trying to establish.  You may even go as far as sharing it on your social media or if you are a blogger, write a blog about your new journey. Knowing that others read it and know about it might be just enough to keep you going when you feel like throwing in the towel.

Piggyback On An Existing Habit

Whenever possible, add the new habit to one you already have. For example, if you have a pet and you are giving them fresh water, then why not take the moment to have a glass of water yourself. It’s much easier to amend an existing habit or ritual than creating an entirely new one.

 Find Accountability  Partner 

Find someone with the same or similar goal. This could be a workout partner or a diet buddy. Keep in contact with them via text or social media and encourage each other to keep going. It’s much harder to skip a walk if you know someone else is depending on you being there.

Make It A Group Challenge

If one accountability partner is good, a whole group is even better. And they don’t even need to be local. Find a supportive group online and challenge each other to stick to your new habit for the next 30 days or so. Not wanting to be the first one to give up will keep all of you going until you establish that new habit.

Give these simple little hacks a try. Keep using the ones that you find helpful until you have made new habits you can stick with without the help of any tools or support.
