Last week I read an amazing blog post by Nisha Moodley. In the post she talked about how she chooses 3 things to focus on each week and how it has worked really well for her for the past 7 years. I was so inspired by and interested in this idea that I decided to try it out for myself.
Last week I chose the following 3 areas to focus on:
- Meditation daily (3 times)
- Drink 8 glasses of water a day
- Exercise daily (at least one time for 15 minutes)
I wanted to make each of the goals simple enough that I wouldn’t be overwhelmed, however, I also wanted them to be worthwhile and things that I would be proud of myself for sticking with.
Starting your own business is a process and journey that can be extremely intimidating because there are always so many things to be working on but you don’t always know where to start. As a result, the three things that I chose are activities that I find often get thrown aside.
Health is one of the most important aspects of my life and I know that whenever I am taking care of myself, I seem to do better in all aspects of life.
I’ve found that this has bee such an effective way to incorporate new habits. Sometimes it can be easy to get overwhelmed when there are so many things that you want to be working on.
I would encourage each one of you to try out this method this week! It works well to start a new habit on Sunday but really you could begin on any day of the week. Give yourself 5-10 minutes to think through what you would want to work on this week.
Creating lasting change is not about being perfect or changing everything, but taking small daily steps over an extended period of time!
