A couple of years ago I went through some really tough times.
Work was shit.
Life was stressful.
And I had let go of a lot of things that were important to me. A lot of things that made me happy.
So what did I do...?
I forced some good habits back into my life.
Here were some of the things I wanted to do more regularly:
Read for 30 mins. Have a green smoothie in the mornings. Meditate. Train. Play.
See my friends. Switch off my phone for a day. Write some gratitude. Take cold showers.
And loads more.
Sounds like too much, I know.
But it wasn’t.
What I did was I created a game. I got a little whiteboard out and made a chart.
All the tasks down. All the days of the week across.
And I challenged myself.
Be better every week.
It’s funny how competitive you can be with yourself. At least I can.
Week one, I scored 19 points on my self-made grading scale.
"19 points. Pffft." That’s lame, I thought.
"I’ll smash that next week."
Next week 25. And so on and so on and so on.
You don’t need to play this game forever. People will think you are weirdo. And it would be fair because you would, in fact, be a weirdo.
But once you do this for 2-3 months, you will gain half of these little tasks as serious habits.
And then it will be easier to keep going.
And then you will be happier. And that’s what it’s all about.
Now go out and give it a shot!
