Habits & Breaking Them

I’ve recently taken up blogging and I’ve missed my first post! Occasionally when you begin a new habit, you’ll break it. I’ve began drawing every day, I’ve began working out every day, I’ve began blogging every day. And I’ve broken the habits that I worked so hard to form. 

But I’ve forgiven myself. And I’ve kept on the next day. We’re all human afterall (presumably – I’ve been watching a lot of sci-fi/fantasy lately). So, you may find yourself falling behind on things you’re supposed to be doing. If you miss a day, just keep on going the next day. One day gone shouldn’t kill all that you’ve worked so hard for. 

And if you’re in a funk and you’re missing multiple days in a row, maybe you’re expecting too much of yourself. Either you’re strung too tight, lacking motivation or skill, or you just don’t have the time. Whatever is going on, you’ve got enough on your plate and maybe your habit is just overkill. Cut yourself a little slack.


Habits & Breaking Them

One thought on “Habits & Breaking Them

  1. Great stuff Ashley, thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Forming healthy habits can be tough, as you say, but it is important not to judge ourselves too much. I find that it’s best to work on just one or two habits at a time, so as not to overwhelm yourself. It’s also important to remember the big reason why.

    If people are doing something for the wrong reasons or they’re not sure of the reasons, it won’t stick. For example, if someone wanted to start going to yoga 3 times a week, they need to remind themselves why and this reason could be to get more flexible or to calm their mind more.

    Good luck with continuing to work on your habits!

    Loving the content, keep doing what you’re doing 🙂

    PS – On a related note, I’m on the hunt for feedback for my new show The HERO Podcast! It’s all about creating healthy habit. The episode with Derek Doepker may be of interest to you where he discusses how to make lasting changes.
