    You are so right about the time involved with changing habits and in our ‘quick fix’ world that may be the biggest challenge of all. I see comments from people all the time about how many ways they’ve tried to change or how many systems they’ve used. Most of these strategies actually work, but only if you follow the directions and stick with it. I especially like your advice about seeking support because adding an element of accountability can make all the difference. Thanks for the tips and inspiration!

    Hi Barrie,

    Glad to be here again after a long time. Actually, I am here from the PAC blog rotator link. Regarding your post, I can say that changing habits is not so easy. But I agree with you that anyone can put effort to change their habits in a gradual manner.

    Hoping to be here again to read more posts from you.

    Thanks again

    Thank YOU…. I know a lot of people who will excuse themselves from event than face reality. Is either that or they blame others for whatever it is they are going through. My motto if you don’t like change it at all cost. There is no point leaving a life of regrets just because one did not take an action when they could have. Thank you for address the in another way. Great advice….SEEK SUPPORT

    Hi Barrie

    As you so brilliantly shared, to preplace bad habits requires that we replace them with good habits which does a lot of time and discipline. There is a cool benefit when we adopt good habits. Thank you so much for sharing your insight on this post. Take Care

    Hi Barrie,
    We are all about habits. changing the habits we don’t like about our lives is not easy.
    As you said you can not change if your attitude is negative. When you are positive you see life in a different light. start with it gradually and eventually your old habits can be changed with new postive attitudes on life. Find support with a community to help with accountablity and you are on your way to a life of new habits.

    You are so appropriate about the time required with changing propensities and in our ‘fast settle’ world that might be the greatest test of all. I see remarks from individuals all the time about what number of ways they’ve attempted to change or what number of frameworks they’ve utilized. The vast majority of these methodologies really work, however just in the event that you take after the bearings and stay with it. I particularly like your recommendation about looking for support on the grounds that including a component of responsibility can have a significant effect. A debt of gratitude is in order for the tips and motivation!

    Hi Barrie,
    You are so right THAT negative thoughts will not help you to break your habit and create a new one. but if you are stuck in a negative thought pattern, that is the time to reach out to others. Find someone who will listen, with empathy, someone who is not also in a negative mindset. Let that person provide some impetus for you to change your attitude first. Once your mindset is more optimistic, then take a few small steps toward making the desired changes.

    Warmly,
    Dr. erica

    My personal experience has been that when I am truly ready for a change I change but then the problem with being consistent comes in. Easily backsliding. So I started concentrating on what are the signs that come before I start to backslide. in some cases I have it worked out when I recognize the pre-behavior I catch myself. this has helped me over the years and I can truthfully report that when I make a conscious decision to ignore the signs my relapse in behavior I do not refer to it as a slip. my foundation is encouraging books and affirmations. I love chosing an affirmation for the week, month they really work.

    Hi barrie,

    that’s so true, in order to break bad habits we have to eliminate the excuses. I had to break the habit of sleeping in on weekends. now i find it rewarding to get up early on weekends. I feel like i will miss something if i don’t. i just made the decision and i did it.

    thanks for sharing.

    Hi Barrie,

    I have been changing my eating habits and a bit of a change to my workout habit as well. I went on a special 10 day cleanse – got really difficult on the 9th day, but I was determined. today I was craving a big omelet with nova, spinach and sautéed onions and a potato pancake. So I indulged. tomorrow it is back to my special dietary choices, not as extreme as the 10 day cleanse though.
    I am seeing, first hand, what it really takes to change a habit and continue the new habit indefinitely. But that is my goal for 2017 and beyond. to walk 1000 miles and continue to eat totally healthy.

    Warmly,
    dr. Erica

    Negativity does not bring about anything positive. Looking for the lessons and the positive message in every situation can create lasting change.

    Although it’s easy to spot some bad habits (such as in diet) others are so embedded in our subconscious that we don’t realize they are holding us back. I think negative thinking is one of those. I always considered myself optimistic and I was on the surface. Not until I did some work, because of being depressed, I realized that I had fleeting thoughts which passed without me realizing that affected my mood. It was only then I could set about changing them.
