I have never changed a strong habit in my life, but I have changed a few weak habits. The first time I changed a habit was when I decided to start working out regularly. I had been trying to lose weight for years, but I never really stuck to a plan. I would start off by working out for a couple of weeks, but inevitably I would slip up and eat more than I should. But starting to work out regularly helped me to become more disciplined and to see the positive impact that working out had on my overall health. The second time I changed a habit was when I decided to stop smoking. I had been smoking for about a year and a half when I decided to give up. I was really committed to quitting and I think part of why it was so difficult was because I never really made a strong commitment to myself. I would start smoking again if I felt like I was struggling to stick to my quit smoking goals, but I never really made a permanent change. Changing my smoking habit was a lot easier than I thought it would be, and I am really glad that I made the decision to quit.
Watch the following video carefully; it is a real eye-opener:
Have you ever changed a strong habit in your life What made you change it?
I’ve changed a lot of habits in my life. Some of them have been really difficult, but I’ve been able to stick with them because I know that they’re good for me. Here are a few examples:
1. I stopped using caffeine to stay awake.
2. I started exercising regularly.
3. I stopped eating out as much.
4. I started saving money.
5. I started working on my own projects instead of just completing others’ assignments.
6. I started talking to my parents more.
7. I stopped putting myself down.
8. I started prioritizing my time and spending more time with my friends.
9. I started taking care of myself better.
10. I started trusting my gut more.
It took a lot of effort to change these habits, but I know that they’re worth it. I’ve been able to improve my life immensely because of them.
During my early twenties, I had habit of chewing scented betel nut after lunch. It is kind of mouth freshner here in India.
I would chew that only once in the day, that too only after lunch.
If I did not chew one, I would feel very uncomfortable. I would feel as if my stomach is bloated.
One day I had an argument with my husband.
“Why do people can’t stop smoking, knowing that it is dangerous to health?” I said.
“People dont stop smoking not because they are unaware of the impending dangers. It is because it is very difficult to quit when one is habituated to smoke” husband said.
“ If one has will power one can stop” I said.
“ It is easier said than done. Can you stop chewing that small piece of betel nut after lunch?” He asked.
That made me think seriously.
Just to test my will power, I had thrown the packet in the dust bin.
For few days I felt uncomfortable after lunch.
For few days I replaced that betel nut piece with a cardamom or clove.
But if I still have a craving to chew ‘something’ after lunch, I had no will power.
So I stopped chewing that cardamom or clove. Within few days I stopped feeling uncomfortable after lunch.
So that way I had overcome my strong habit.
Thank you @Sarhad Choudhary for the A2A.
”How do I change my habits to change my life?”
Keep Things Tidy. Picking up, keeping things organized, and even just making the bed helps us feel better. Mindfully Manage Your Money. Choose Gratitude. Stay Hydrated. Plan Your Days. Put Your Family First. Get Up Early. Prepare for Success the Night Before.
One of the most common things people ask for help with is changing bad habits into good ones. Unfortunately, this is often incredibly difficult. Habits are hard to break, and once they’re formed, it can be really difficult to change them. However, with a bit of effort and perseverance, you can start to make changes that will lead to a better life.
The first step is to understand why you have the habit in the first place. Why do you do it? What is the benefit to you? Once you know that, you can start to think about ways to replace the habit with a better one.
One of the most common ways to change a habit is to replace it with a new one. This means you have to come up with a new habit that is better for you. This can be tough, but it’s worth it. If you can replace a bad habit with a good one, you’ll be on your way to a better life.
Another way to change a habit is to replace it with a new combination of old habits. This means you combine two different good habits to create a new, better one. This can be a little more difficult, but it’s worth it. If you can create a new habit that is better than both of your old habits, you’ll be on your way to a better life.
Finally, you can also try to change your environment. This means you change the things around you that are influencing your habit. This can be tough, but it’s worth it. If you can change the things around you, you’ll be more likely to change your habit.
These are all ways to change your habits. If you can find one that works best for you, you’ll be on your way to a better life.
What are some habits to change?
Make your bed in the morning. I picked up this habit from Tim Ferris after reading his book the 4 hour work week. Develop a morning routine. Schedule time for exercise. Drink more water. Start a meditation practice. Keep your space tidy. Express gratitude. Use visualization.
There are many habits to change, but here are a few that may be helpful:
1. Make a list of the habits that you would like to change and make a plan to start working on them right away.
2. Set small, manageable goals for yourself and work towards them one at a time.
3. Be persistent – keep at it until the habit change is successful.
4. Create a support system – talk to friends and family about your goals, and ask for their help.
5. Be accountable – keep track of your progress, and be sure to give yourself credit for any successes.
6. Be patient – it may take some time for the new habit to become a part of your life, but it will be worth it in the end.

What are the three things you want to change in your life?
Change your priorities. This is important if you want to live a balanced, fulfilling life. Change your self-talk. Your self-talk has significant influence in your life. Change your motivation. Change your habits. Change your friends. Change your commitments. Change your inputs. Change your methods.
As I near the end of my twenties, I’ve come to realize that there are three things I want to change in my life.
First, I want to be more balanced and mindful in my daily life. I want to live in the present and not dwell on the past or worry about the future.
Second, I want to be more compassionate and loving towards others. I want to be more understanding and forgiving of others, even when they don’t deserve it.
Third, I want to be more proactive and take more initiative in my life. I want to be more engaged with the world around me and make more of an impact.
What habit do you want to change and why?
Set three or four daily priorities. Read for an hour a day. Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night. Walk 30 minutes a day. Do regular full-body workouts. Follow an intermittent fasting/eating pattern. Be present. Give love freely.
I want to change my habit of procrastinating. I’ve been putting things off for so long that I’ve become almost used to it, and I’m starting to feel like it’s a part of who I am. I think it’s time to break free from this habit and start working on my projects sooner rather than later.
