Creatures of Habit | Learn how healthy habits can transform your life

By Chardonnay Beaver

Author James Clear wrote one of the highest sold books ever in 2018 titled “Atomic Habits: Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results.” The book effortlessly emphasizes the power of incorporating small, incremental changes over time. Clear outlines the practical methods that aid readers in forming habits. Here are Clear’s general “laws” for habit formation: Make it obvious: expose yourself to resources that can help you prioritize this habit. For example, if you want to become more active, but your gym clothes are in the back of your closet, make them tangible! Bring your gym clothes to the front of your closet. Make it attractive: make the selected habit something you want to do by pairing it with something you need to do. For example, if you don’t enjoy folding clothes, watch your favorite movie while folding. Make it easy: Start with bite sizes and pace yourself. For example, instead of setting a goal to read 50 books in a year, start reading 10 pages a day. Make it satisfying: There has to be a greater sense of a reward. Though we shouldn’t expect instant gratification, this habit should be positive and reinforce healthy benefits for yourself and those around you. Humans are creatures of habit and practice. Transformation isn't instantaneous, but gradual. It all begins in our mind. We can’t be passive about the areas of our life that desperately need growth. The hope deficit in this generation is due to people not knowing ‘how’ to fight for their lives– young people not knowing their significance and purpose, and the systems that keep them unaware. Do your part by making the necessary changes to improve. Words of Wisdom by Char of the week: Fight for your life. Fight for your wholeness. Fight for your peace. Fight for your family. Fight for better, don’t accept the mundane. You were created for a greater purpose, by & for God… act accordingly. Romans 12:2
