Changing Your Life

Changing Your Life

Whether you want change in your life or not, you can be certain changes will occur. The only thing that might not be as certain is how quickly or slowly it might occur. There are events that happen in our lives that change everything for us overnight and then there are the actions and activities we chose to be involved with that change our lives on a more over a longer period of time. When we do certain things over an extended time things can become habits.

Habits may, for good reason, be difficult to change especially the one that have a long time to root themselves. The time it actually takes to create a habit can vary, some can happen fairly quickly and then be broken and others may have been developed over a lifetime. Studies have shown that it takes approximately 21 days to create a new habit. Breaking a bad habit can sometimes be challenging especially if it was developed over a long period of time. The interesting thing about bad habits is that is often is something that at least at one point was providing us with pleasure or was something that was enjoyable. So, it makes sense that if we want to break or rid ourselves of a bad habit, that gives us pleasure, then we need to replace it with a new habit, that is not bad for us and that gives us pleasure.

Now is the best time to make changes in your life, stop thinking about the excuses why you can not change, it is never too late to change. Don’t let excuses get in the way of your changes…anything that tries to prevent you from change is an excuse, if you really want change in your life there may be challenges, but no excuses.
