Did you know that 45% of the actions that we do each day are out of habit? That's pretty amazing isn't it! And it's great news because that means that we can easily build upon those existing habits in order to implement new, healthy habits into our life.
By blending new habits into our existing routines we can create massive impact in our lives! There's a lot of information out there about how long it can take to develop a new habit, and when you boil it all down it comes down to repetitions of that new habit, or just plain practice. So the simpler we can make a new habit the more likely we are to practice it and make it an automatic part of our day. From there you can build upon this new habit to make it even more impactful in your life, stacking other easy to execute habits on top of it.
So, let me give you an example of how focusing on one of these goals has made a massive impact in my life and has allowed me to achieve goals far bigger than one of these habits.
Next I wanted to start drinking our morning mojo (scroll down for the recipe!) which is a mixture of apple cider vinegar, fresh squeezed lemon juice, and fresh grated ginger with all kinds of great health benefits. This was now super easy to implement because I'd already made drinking a glass of water a habit, so adding the morning mojo to it was no big deal. Next I needed to continue to drink more water throughout the day, so I started filling my water bottle at the same time that I made my Morning Mojo and Coffee, and set a reminder on my phone to make sure that I drank that bottle by lunchtime and refilled it for the 2nd half of the day. Before I knew it I was drinking more water and feeling SO MUCH BETTER in all kinds of ways.
This simple addition to my existing coffee drinking routine led to being better hydrated, which in turn led to having more energy, my body and joints felt less achey and stronger, my workouts were more enjoyable and more effective, this led to even more energy, which led to more productivity, which led to feeling a greater sense of accomplishment, which led to feeling more confident in the work that I do. And all of that was created by stacking the addition of a glass of water to my morning routine of brewing coffee. Amazing right?!
