Focus On The Journey: Habits

Updated: Jan 5, 2020

Habit; A settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.

If you're anything like me your habits probably look like a few of the icons in the graphic above. Waking up, brushing your teeth, maybe looking at your phone or eating some breakfast to start the day. Hopefully getting a workout in, heading to work, and then catching your favorite show on your favorite streaming service over dinner at the end of the day.

Every day looks the same.

But wait, are there any habits you might need to reset? That breakfast I mentioned, are you eating breakfast? If so, what does it consist of? How many hours a day are you actually staring at your phone or browsing Netflix? Are you snacking throughout the day? Are you sitting for 8 hours strait at work?

At this point, these may be mindless habits but in the beginning they were conscious choices that we once made. There's a quote somewhere that says something like "It takes 21days to make a habit." But then how long can it take to break the habit? Especially habits we've had over multiple years of our lives?
