I am forming new habits to improve my life and increase my overall satisfaction. I am determined to continue to practice the healthy patterns I have established. The strength necessary to successfully form and keep new habits is stored within me.
I have patience with myself when creating challenging new routines. Sometimes it takes days or even months to form new patterns of behavior, but I have the patience to keep trying.
Repetition is my key to success. In order for me to turn new activities into habits, I must practice repetition. Every day, I perform my new activities with hard work and great effort. As I practice repetition, new behaviors become easier.
Even when I feel tempted to give up, I push myself to repeat it one more time. I share my goals with those closest to me and rally their support. With the help of my loved ones and my own reminders, I am successful!
When establishing new habits, I take it one day and one habit at a time. An easy pace helps me gradually make a permanent change. I forgive myself if there is a setback and jump right back up on my feet to avoid getting discouraged.
Today, I visualize myself living the life I deserve. I fight against all temptation because the rewards in my future outweigh the sacrifices I am making right now.
