Developing Healthy Habits to make positive change

Developing Healthy Habits to make positive change: A Handy Guide to Self-Discipline

Whether you want to drink more water, start an exercise plan or simply be more mindful in your life, in order to make any changes we need to develop healthy habits to support our new lifestyle choice. Let’s face it, you not only have to want to change but you are going to need a little self- discipline.

Self-discipline seems to be the thing that everyone else has, right? While there may be a few that are fortunate enough to be self-motivated most of us require some sort of self-discipline plan to motivate us. Self-discipline is the ability to do something that you don’t feel like doing. We each have a limited supply, but we can grow our capacity for self-discipline over time.

Those with high levels of self-control have been found to be happier than those with low levels. It’s believed this is due to reduced internal conflict. Those with less self-control are constantly struggling to make decisions between competing goals. Those with more self-control make decisions more rationally and much more quickly.

Increase your ability to control yourself:

  1. Success without discipline is a myth. Successful people appear to have ten times more talent than the rest of us, but successful people work very hard to be successful. The ability to control your thoughts and actions creates success. Hard work requires discipline, because it usually isn’t fun.
  2. Avoid waiting until you feel inspired to take action. As a creative I am so guilty of this one! I know we all want to be “in the flow.” But with all the forms of entertainment, social media and other distractions, it’s logical to assume that we should feel inspired to do the things that need to be accomplished.
  3. Quality of life and comfort are often at odds. If you are too comfortable you are not growing. Self-discipline can be used to engage in activities that aren’t comfortable. Only then will you enjoy a high quality of life.
  4. Learn to complete tasks. Let finishing become your code. Become a finisher. Regardless of the task, see it through to the end. Don’t let you inner perfectionist stop you either! My coach Caterina Rando always says “Done is better than perfect.” You can always make upgrades later. The important thing is to keep in action.  And when you start something, finish it.
  5. Do the hardest thing first. Your self-discipline is highest early in day. SO get that tough item crossed off your to-do list as soon as possible. For me, it is getting on my treadmill desk to check my morning e-mail so that I can get my 30 minutes in before I start the rest of my busy day.
  6. Learn to stay with discomfort. Do you have the urge to go to the kitchen for a snack? Make yourself wait another 30 minutes. Whenever you’re feeling uncomfortable, make yourself stay with it just a little longer. Teach yourself that your discomfort is only a suggestion. Figure out what it is trying to tell you. Check in with your body and your emotions. You don’t have to cave in.
  7. Take time to enjoy yourself. This is the best way to replenish your willpower. Stress, hunger, and fatigue drain your ability to exercise self-discipline. So eat a good meal and get a full night of sleep. Take care of your body and take care that your spirit is being nourished. Take part in enjoyable activities.
  8. Know your outcome. Make your vision board. Write a manifesto of your desired outcome and put it somewhere that you see it daily. Spend time being with your compelling vision on a daily basis. Keep your eyes on the prize. Self-discipline becomes easier when you’re able to maintain a long-term perspective.
  9. Develop habits. Creating a habit of making your bed each morning eliminates the need for discipline. Habits are powerful. Put yourself on autopilot and use the power of habits to your advantage.
  10. Meditate. Studies have shown that mediation strengthens the part of the brain responsible for self-control. I have created a library of affirmation meditations at my YouTube channel or you can Buy a book or find a local meditation group.
  11. Use affirmations. When you feel your resolve weakening, recite positive affirmations to yourself. This is a great time to utilize the affirmation meditations at my You Tube Channel. Keep your mind occupied on something positive while you get your work done.
  12. Give yourself frequent breaks. Setting a schedule that’s too aggressive will quickly diminish your self-discipline. Give yourself regular breaks to ensure that you stay alert and fresh. Also along these lines I want to remind you to give yourself enough travel time so you can be prepared and feel centered if you are having an appointment outside outside of your office.

Well, what do you think? How much self-discipline do you have? Your level of self-discipline can affect your diet, health, fitness, finances, career, and relationships. Self-discipline is a learned behavior, so you can develop your self-discipline if you choose. With enough self-discipline, you can achieve any goal.

Heal broken heart energy

Ouch! How do you heal a broken heart or heart trauma? Ever have an emotional trauma that hit you like a harpoon in the chest? Or maybe you are just extremely empathic and you dodge these daggers daily?

Here is this goddess’s recipe for healing a broken heart chakra.

You are going to want to get yourself some support if you have had any major stress or emotional trauma whether it is heart related or not. Here are my favorite remedies for heart related emotional trauma’s.

Aromatherapy: I use Aromatherapy in my practice to heal and support the emotional body. Flowers are the Diva’s of nature. And let me just say, never underestimate the emotional clearing power of a targeted Diva!  Aromatherapy is nature’s little pick me up. Much more than just a wafting scent, these tiny plant life force molecules are so small that they absorb directly into the bloodstream and penetrate the blood brain barrier for an instant boost when you need it. Call on the goddess energy Maeve to help in this area. For shock or heart trauma I may use helichrysum to help with the shock and I also like Young Living Harmony Blend to calibrate and soothe the etheric energy bodies. If there is physical pain or tightness in the chest I might put just a tiny drop of jasmine to smoothe out the rough edges.

On a completely random aside: I recently got a humidifier and aromatherapy unit that plugs into my car! no more dry sinuses or empathic road rage and energy trauma while driving YAY!

Energy Medicine: Call in your Angels Masters and guides to assist you on an energetic level. I recommend getting some Hand’s On energy work perhaps integrated with massage by a trusted practitioner. Regardless of what modality your Practitioner uses nothing beats the nurturing and nourishing power of touch when our heart is wounded or hurting.

SELF CARE: As previously stated while you can do energy work and cultivate a daily practice, it is also important to seek an intuitive coach and healing practitioners to address any pain in the physical body.  Make sure to get a massage, get some nutritional support, see your chiropractor and or acupuncturist. Have an on the ground team and call on them frequently just as you would call on your angelic healing team.

Well, that’s all for today. Happy Healing. Please practice Radical Self Care during these crazy times when fear and anger is rising. Remember, only love is real.

I want to invite you to join my Facebook Group “Energy Activism Radical Self Care for a Better World” to get hot tips on Self Care and how to use energy healing to make the world a better place.

thanks!
