Breaking That Old Habit

Old habits die hard, but when they do, new and better ones rise up to replace them. If you’re having trouble kicking an old habit to the curb, consider this:

Your life may depend on it.

If you carry around bad habits, such as smoking, drinking often, or eating unhealthy, you could be sabotaging your health, and taking years off of your life. Good habits are really just promises that you make to yourself to keep your body energized and your body working properly.

Generally, it takes around 21 days for a new habit to form. But repetition keeps your body physically active and mentally motivated. So don’t feel bad if you think you can’t kick a habit today or even tomorrow. Keep working at it and eventually, good habits become routine. You’re in the process of breaking bad habits that will save your life.

This also applies to loving yourself and becoming healthier. Its all about taking baby steps.
