I hope your spirit is starting to soar!
As you all know, I did a liquid fast yesterday and I feel very energized today!
It is said that the way to create a new habit is to do anything for 21 days. So… 40 should be even better! If you’re anything like I am, you might have created habits in longer than that and broken them in the end because something else (like work, traffic, etc.) got in the way.
So, here’s my tip: build micro habits and stack up on them. For example – meditate for 7 minutes. If you need to, set an alarm as a reminder but try to have as little time of preparation/ transport as possible. And keep a schedule (as a guideline) For example:
Meditation/ Prayer or both! I, personally practice both.
Instead of… having to prepare music, cushion, mat, etc…
Try… Concentrating on your breathing instead of music, If you kneel or sit on a lotus flower have a cushion ready by your bed or preferred spot.
Around those micro habits build rituals. By a ritual I do not mean incense and candle burning, not necessarily. What I mean by rituals is for example:
Get up, first thing in the AM give thanks and pray or meditate. THEN drink warm tea or lemon water while… exercise and so on.
Build a schedule AROUND those rituals which represent your most important to do’s If you tackle everyday what is important you will prevent it from becoming urgent. Do the same with your work/business to do items, taking care of the 3 most important at a time. The rest will take care of itself, please believe me on this one…. Or better try it for 1 week. 3 most important, every day. You’ll see the difference!
How do you find the most important? First, take care of yourself: Body, Mind, Soul which is why we suggest exercise, diet and meditation and/or prayer. Get the idea? Remember that without having yourself, you will have nothing… which is also why you should love God first, yourself immediately after and your kindred next.
