I know that that I have absolutely no annoying little habits in life. Okay, so I’m pretending I don’t have any annoying habits. But if I’m really am honest I do. And as I was talking with a friend yesterday, the question came up why is it so hard to break bad habits? You know like eating junk foods, sitting on the couch watching TV, and spending too much money. But it’s so easy to break those habits that are good for you like packing a healthy lunch for work, going for a walk after work, and of course sticking to that savings plan.
They say that it takes 30 days to break a bad habit. So if you decide to pack your lunch and take it to work, and you do it for 30 days you have broken the habit of eating out at lunchtime. But say things get a little hectic at home, and you can’t pack a lunch for those days. You manage to break your good habit in less than 30 days.
So where is this rambling going? It’s going toward a bad habit I want to break. You know a goal I want to set for myself.
The bad habit I want to break is putting off returning phone calls, and text messages. I’ve mentioned it before, and it’s a joke between some of my friends. They have stated that sometimes I have to review my text messages to her to see what I asked two days ago. Yes, it’s true. And I’ve decided that it’s time to change that habit. It’s time to stop living in my own world, and return calls in a timely fashion. So for the next 30 days that is my goal. It will be a challenge, but with a little work I think it is something I can achieve.
What little bad habits do you want to change?
