Forming a habit, good or bad, does not happen overnight. You have to keep doing the same thing until you start doing it unconsciously. If you want to start developing good habits, you must work hard to achieve them.
One of the best ways to ensure that you practice good habits is by seeking for help from friends and family members. Be open to them. Let them know what bad habits you want to reverse and why you have decided to start doing so.
They are the best people who will understand what you are going through. Take note that you can always snap back to your old ways if you are not careful. They will remind you of what you have gone through to remove your bad habits. They are a great support system.
When you feel like giving up, they will be there to cheer you on. This is why it is important to have these people by your side. You can change on your own, but when you can’t control yourself, you will easily fall back to the old ways. You don’t want to throw away everything you have worked hard for in the past.
This is a process and you should take your time to get there. Create a realistic plan that you can follow. Don’t be frustrated if you don’t see progress. Just keep on doing what is right.
