The Importance of Habits

 

Whether you consider your habits to be good or bad, all habits are hard to break, this is why they are so important.

Finding habits hard to break is perfect for something you want to sustain, so creating habits that allow you to reach your goals is the way to go.

If you want to manage stress, live a healthy, balanced and fulfilled life, focus on habits that support that.

Forming habits reduces the need for willpower because we do things without having to think about them too much.

Habits emerge from the gradual learning of associations between responses and the features of performance contexts that have historically accompanied them (e.g., physical settings, preceding actions).

Once a habit is formed, the perception of contexts triggers the associated response without the need for a mediating objective.

The above explains why when you practice The Five Morning Habits to Win the Day, for 30 days, at the same time, under the same physical settings, you might skip some days, and at that time, under those physical settings, your body still experiences the benefits.

The fact that habits are difficult to break is clearly a good thing if you want to maintain them, but not so good if you want to change them. Experts say that the best way to break a habit is to replace it with another one so if you have a bad habit, replace it with a positive one, select something alternative to be or to do and make sure to choose something that supports your goals.

Last but not least, remember this famous quote:

“Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny.” Gandhi

Choose your habits wisely. 😊

 

Love Metaphysics

 

Everything is energy …. Including our emotions.

Some emotions have low frequency energy and literally bring us down. Other emotions have high frequency energy and literally bring us up.

Love is energy vibrating at the highest possible frequency and when we feel it, we algin ourselves with the original energy of the universe.

We are an expression of that original energy so deep inside our core we are pure loving energy. This is the reason why when we experience love if feels so good… because it is our true nature!

There are different types of love: conditional love for family and friends; unconditional love for sickness and enemies; universal unconditional love for everything that exists…. And they are all high frequency energies.

Our emotions at any given moment of time are indicators of how closely our energy is in alignment with the original energy.

For instance, our true nature believes that we have unlimited potential, if we are in doubt of our abilities, we are not loving ourselves that much, we are not aligned with our true nature, and we experience uncomfortable feelings.

In contrast, when we see the best in other people and we believe in them, it feels good, because that is an expression of our true nature, it is an expression of love.

On the other hand, when we don’t like something in other people and we try to withhold love from them (for instance when we scold our children) it feels bad because we move away from our true nature, the nature of love.

Consciously choosing to return to love is an act of self-love, even if the love is directed to others because it brings us closer to our true nature.

It is important to know that we are constantly either moving towards love or away from love, and that translates into moving towards the alignment with our true nature or moving away from it. Where would you like to be?

If you need some help to consciously return to love, start by practicing The Five Morning Habits to Win the Day.
