a close friend of mine were talking today.. I am not going to say what we were talking about its not relevant, but what he said really resonated with me.. i told him practice makes perfect.. He said no practice makes habit.. He is so right. so what I took away from the conversation which started out about completely something different than health and wellness, but I turned it into something I could use on my journey.
Practice makes habit,. so if you keep putting something into practice good things like ex, water, and making the right food choices.. than eventually those things will become a habit..
so out of all the definitions for the word habit.. i liked this one best..
Habit- an acquired behavior pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary:
so almost involuntary something you do without thinking about anymore.. doesn't that make so much sense.. so if you continue to get up everyday and put things into practice making it a normal part of your daily routine.. it soon will come a point that you don't even have to think about that action and it will come to you just as natural as you crossing a street..
you don't cross the street without looking because you have instilled it in you look before you cross the street its a habit we were taught.. so making good choices, drinking our water and getting up and moving can be transformed into something that automatically becomes involuntary if we just take the first step. which is to practice our goals.
