SWAP UNHEALTHY HABITS WITH PRODUCTIVE HABITS | 14 DAYS OF SELF LOVE






 I know we all may have some bad habits that we may be trying to break but lets talk about swapping out those bad habits for some good and positive/productive ones. If you have a habit of snacking try snacking on something healthy. You still get the satisfaction of snacking but more healthy then chips and sugary items. 


I want to give you 9 steps or ways you can start swapping those bad unhealthy habits for good ones. Its not always about the habits but the process.


1. START TODAY
The best way to break a bad habit is to just do it. Even if you did the bad habit this morning continue the rest of the day and really try to not do it. Sometimes distracting ourselves with other things we enjoy helps. 

2.DO IT EVEN WHEN YOU DONT WANT TO
Lets face the truth, somedays we just don't want to do something and that's okay it happens. But power through those days. Just keep remembering what your doing it for. 
 
3.FIGURE OUT THE WHY
Getting to the root of any problem or habit is always a good start to break a bad habit. Maybe its just easier or  something stemming from something else. 

4.MAKE A CONSCIOUS EFFORT
Keeping your productive habits in the fore front of your mind always is a must. You have to make an effort to make a change. You have to put in the work.


5.SET A REMINDER
Maybe setting a reminder on your phone every hour or few hours with reminding you to stay on track with breaking your habit. Maybe if you a smoker, set a reminder during your break times or randomly throughout the day.

6.SET GOALS
Set a realistic goal of where you want to be in the next few weeks or months. And really strive to reach that goal. 


7.ONE HABIT AT A TIME
Don't bombard your mind with to much at a time. Take your time and work on one habit at a time. That way all of your focus and energy is really going towards that one thing. 


8.REWARD
There is nothing wrong with giving yourself a reward for accomplishing something. Maybe after the first week or month. reward yourself with something you really want. 

9.PATIENCE 
Patience is key. We may want things over night. We can start over night but understand things take time, and if you have a hard day. pick up the piece tomorrow. Its not the end of the world.
