Habits! What’s holding us back? ….
Habits! What’s holding us back? What is the desired lifestyle? For me its being able to do what I want when I want and have the health, ability, energy, money, freedom and time to do it.
So what holds us back? Is it our current jobs? Is it our current routines? Is it the people around us? What is it? Are you frustrated and feel like you are going around in circles? Like life is like ground hog day. Do you have a bunch of ideas, struggle to relax and enjoy your children, struggling to find a moment for yourself to recharge, watch the latest episode of stranger things, orange is the new black or house of cards on netflix’s. When did you take time out to meditate, exercise or have sex? Have you neglected your health whilst raising your children or chasing your career. Is it time to get things back in shape?
There is no time like the present. Most of our day is unconscious habits made up years ago. I get it, I get the frustration you can’t change something we don’t know about or are unconscious too. We have apps to track your calories and your finances. However why hasn’t there been an app to track the most important thing in your life, your time. All successful people know that time is the most valuable asset they have. The good news is as a registered nurse and qualified personal trainer I really got the value of how precious time is and how quickly it can be taken away and I created RemindMyLife application which tracks your most valuable asset, your time.
So why would tracking what you already doing, be helpful. Well knowing what you are doing is the most powerful access you will have to making any change to your daily habits you have, because after all most of what you do everyday is habit. Habits that you have adopted over years of conditioning, good or bad we have them. So how does it work?? Im excited to bring you Remindmylife an app to track time. Simple tap and track your daily habits from the moment you wake up til the time you go to sleep.
Track for 6-8 weeks to see the routine patterns of your life. With this valuable insight to your life you can then choose to keep or change habits that don’t serve you anymore. If you master your day you will master your life.
For me the most important thing in life is to create as much free time, so I can have the energy and freedom to do what I enjoy. So to do that I have broken life down into 6 important areas to take care of to support the lifestyle I want to lead. Work to make finances, Sleep to regenerate each night, Food to provide my body with the nutrients its needs to keep performing, Exercise for strength, agility and tone to maintain my ideal body shape and support the activities I love to do, Meditation to clear my mind and Free Time to do what I want when I want.
Here is six simple steps you can use to change your daily habits!
Step 1. Tap and track your routine. The key to change is knowing what needs to change. Tap and track your daily routines with remindmylife application, a diary or a calendar. Use what works best for you.
Step 2. Choose what you want to change. I suggest one thing at a time. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself by trying to change too many things at once. Once you have chosen.
Step 3. Have the conversation’s around what you want to change with all involved parties and why.
Step 4. Write down why you want to change and post it everywhere, set reminders using remindmylife app, write it on a post it, put it on the wall, put it next to the toilet, where you wake up, put it on your screen saver and at your work desk.
Step 5. Make the change and immediately take the action.
Step 6. Consistently take the action everyday to create your new habit.
