Old Habits, New Habits

We are what we repeatedly do. –  Aristotle

ImageWhile it’s true that our activities don’t define who we are, it’s undeniable that our patterns of conduct have a profound impact on the way we live. Indulging in negative behavior doesn’t just hurt us: it alters the balance of the universe, because we send not-so-great energy out to the world.
Some of our old habits can be damaging to our physical health: drinking too many cups of coffee every day; smoking; eating certain artificial foods on a daily basis, etc. Other habits are damaging to our mind and spirit: maybe we’re that person who lives glued to the cell phone at all times – even during lunch or while at the movies! Perhaps we are in the habit of thinking that everything is about us, or that the world is ‘out to get us’. Talk about energy-draining!
How many times have we heard or read the saying ‘old habits die hard’? Isn’t it discouraging? Change and improvement go hand in hand, and they’re certainly not easy to accomplish. It takes patience, persistence and time. Let’s change our mindsets: why not focus on the positive effects that new, healthy habits will bring us; instead of emphasizing on how difficult it is to drop certain habits?
Make that list of habits you’d like to drop, check it twice – and decide how you want to change them. There’s no time like the present to begin a positive transformation!
