Bringing some CHANGE into Life :)

Change ! 

I've always heard the phrase , ' Change is a good thing'. But is it? Is it always good . Change can also be a fearsome beast when in the wrong hands. 
People always want to change their life, in some way or the other. And they wonder what habits should they start with?This is not a easy question to answer. There are so many changes one can go though, from quitting smoking to reducing debt.And they all seem life changing .
Change doesn't happen over night. You have to work at it. .I sometimes wonder why it takes so long to achieve the final result. 

Maybe its fear of the unknown? you don't know what the outcome of the change or you are not sure of the next step.

I say that you need to live your life differently or you need to start living your dream, but I haven't practiced this completely. 
I think its time we pick one or two habits that we want to change to be able to live a better life.

" Men's natures are alike, It is their habits that separate them". -Confucius

Now if you are ready to change a habit of yours , here are seven little habits that can change you life :)
Only do one at a time. Here they are ( in my order of preference, yours my be different)

1. Thinking positive : I chose this one first because I think this is the number one /most important thing that will help in bringing change. Positive thinking by itself will not lead you to success, but it goes a long way in motivating.

Try to focus on this first as you will have an easier time with the others. Try by recording all the negative thoughts that come by you during the day and soon you'll be able to recognize then and squash them :P

2. Exercise : Sure, Exercise is healthy and all , but how is it life changing? I'm glad you asked.

  • It makes you feel better about your self and thus making you more confident. This will lead to better positive changes.
  • It reinforces the positive thinking habit. You need to think positive in order to sustain exercise.
  • It relieves stress and help you think better. This leads to better mental well being in your life.
  • It helps with creativity. Don't ask me to prove it. try it yourself, all your best ideas will burst out while your exercising :)
3. Single-tasking : Its the opposite of multi-tasking. Why is it life changing?
  • You will be more effective with your task. and you will get more done. Its hard to acheive important things when your constantly switching tasks and distracted by other urgent things.
  • You will be less stressed overall and (in my experience) happier throughout you day.
4. One Goal at a time: Focus on one Goal at a time. While it may seem a little difficult. Focusing one one goal at a time is the most powerful way of achieving your goals.When you try to take on too many goals , you are spreading your focus and energy - the two critical components for achieving a goal.

Some goals are on going ones- such as blogging everyday or exercising everyday. In those cases turn them into habits. Focus on turning the goals into habits and once you have turn them into a habit then focus on the next goal.

5. Scrap out non essentials : Firstly identify the essential- things in your life that are most important to you, that you love the most. Then eliminate everything else. This simplifies things and leaves you with space to focus no more essential things.

This will change your lie because it will help you to simplify, to focus on whats important and to build the life you want.

6. Be Kind : Yes kindness is a habit. And it can be cultivated. Focus on it for a month and you will see profound changes in your life. You will see people react to you differently and treat you better. 

How do you develop this? Make it a goal to do something ind for someone each day. At the beginning of the day , figure out what the kind act would be and do it during the day. Second, every time you interact with someone, try to be more kind, friendly and compassionate. 

7. Daily Routine : Its so simple. But creating a daily routine for yourself can make a big difference in our life. 

How will it change your life? It will help you get a great start to your day and finish your day by preparing for the next day. 

These are just few basics. there are plenty more things you can do to change your life for the better :)
