So if you want to quit drinking then you have to start with a minimized number of friends you will drink with. If you want to quit smoking then you will have to start by cutting down first, and going on a cigarette budget and sticking to it might help you to do it. Similarly, if you want to start working out every day you must start with simple stretches for 5 minutes every day. But if you follow these simple steps then you can easily incorporate a new habit in your daily life.

  1. Pick a tiny habit – first, choose a habit and promise yourself that you will perform the habit at least for 30 seconds to one minute. 30 seconds might seem negligible but this is very important mentally. Your body won’t repel you from doing it if you think of it as ‘Just 30 Seconds’.
  2. Connect that new habit to an existing habit – this is an important step, you brush your teeth every day you also make your coffee every day, you can associate your new habit with an existing habit in this way you can it simpler and easier to follow.

I’m doing great” will help you to feel more enthusiastic about the new habit. Not everyone will compliment your success you need your cheerleader and every time do something positive you will have to appreciate your efforts.

These are simple steps that will help you to gain a new habit and move forward in life for better success. Adding 30 seconds or 5 minutes to a new habit will not disturb your packed schedule but it surely will allow you to grow for better health and future.

  • While your coffee is brewing you will perform 5 lunges
  • Or whenever you go to the toilet, you will perform 5 to 7 squats every time (especially if you have a desk job)
  • After you have bathed you will sit silently for a minute or two
  • Or right after you have brushed your teeth you will go for a 5-minute walk every day

  • To overcome overeating you can you can put everything on your plate first then move to your table to eat. If you need something then you will have to go to the kitchen and take it out from the pan you have cooked it. Meal-prepping also helps you with this.
