Habits are usually emotional
One thing that we need to realize about habits is that they tend to be emotional. You might not think of it this way, but waiting until the last moment to get up after hitting the snooze button a dozen times and then rushing off to work to be consistently five minutes late might actually be an emotional dependency that you will need to resolve before you can hope to enact the newer habit of getting up early. This is not always the case, but it can be significant—and it is important that you evaluate such possibilities as you go about the process of adopting newer and better habits for yourself.
Habits take time to get used to
It is also important to realize that habits will take time to get used to. Some say that a good habit takes 30 days to form before you will consider it automatic—and there is a lot of truth to this. The problem oftentimes is that a lot of people give up within just a week or two when they start to experience the strain of changing their schedule.
In the end,forming better habits can be a gateway to becoming more successful. Whether you want to exercise more, get up earlier for work, get more sleep, make more time for family, cut down on wasted time, etc., habit are the vehicle by which we make ourselves better and increase our odds of success.
Just always remember that if you can change your habits, you can change your life—because that is often all that it takes.
