Creating healthy routines for your everyday life that will allow you to progress towards your long term goal while also living a fulfilling life in the present is absolutely possible for you! In this post, I’m sharing my top 5 tips as a life and mindset coach for creating healthy routines!
It’s important to understand that the existing ‘habits’ you have that you may see as positive, negative or neutral, are simply your habitual ways of being.
You are able to change and evolve your habitual ways of being thanks to the neuroplasticity of our minds. We are literally able to create new connection and rewire existing ones, like cutting a path through an unploughed field.
“I’m too old to change” “I can’t change” “People can’t change”
All of this is just plain old BS! It’s simply not true. Everyone and anyone is capable of creating mindful and sustainble change and healthy routines that serve them in living a fulfilling life.
Make sure that when you’re trying to create a new ‘habit’ or ‘healthy routine’ that you consider what terminology will most serve and inspire you.
‘Habit’ or ‘Goal’ can feel very strict and constraining to many people (myself included), which is why I think it’s important that you consider what will inspire you.
Our minds like consistent routine (even if it’s not what you may see as a ‘healthy routine’) and is the part of us that resists and struggles with change. That’s why we often just end up coasting on autopilot, doing the same habits and routines just because we’ve always one things that way!
It’s important that we give ourselves permission to revise, drop or create new habits to better fulfill ourselves! As a recovering perfectionist, I’ve struggled in the past to abandon ‘new habits’ or intentions I’ve set for myself when deep down I knew that they were no longer serving me, just because I ‘didn’t want to give up.’
There’s a major difference between dropping something that’s no longer serving you and giving up on something because you’re afraid of it, or don’t feel worthy of it.
How can you infuse more flexibility into your current thought patterns?
The easiest way to actually create a new habit is to attach the new desired routine onto an existing STRONG habit (keystone habit) – for example, if something like mindset work is something you struggle to find time for, you can do it while you brush your teeth – affirmations and 3 things you’re grateful for + 1 intention for the day – 3, 2, 1 Done!
Keystone habits are ones that are naturally already built steadily into your day. Ones you do almost instinctually. These depend on the person, but can include…
When you’re undertaking a significant change in your life or mindset, make sure to gather resources that will allow you to hold your vision.
Be sure to bring in accountability in a way that will serve you best. Create a habit tracker or journal through your new habit in your own space. And, bring in a safe and loving witness to your vision. Ideally, this is a coach who can help you gain clarity and hold you accountable to the next steps of your goal while holding your vision for you when you struggle to! But if that’s not possible for you, a good friend or family member could also offer accounabiliy, so long as they’re willing to remind you of your vision and call you back to it when you’re stuggling to.
