Changing habits

I love to discover, explore and learn. And time is precious and goes so fast. Despite my wide area of interests, I also need to make choices. Maybe in that case it is even more important to make the right choices. 

So be careful with what you choose. It is not only about what you eat, but also about the things you read, you listen to, what you watch and with who you spend your time with. It all has his effect on you. Can you be the person you really are? Do you really choose for the things that are matching you? Do you do the things that give you life energy? 

Or are you living according to the expectations of others? Your family, your colleagues or the society? We all build our own system when we are a child. We are all being influenced by our past. Sometimes we still react to things like we would do when we are a child. We are stuck in a pattern.

The good news is that you can change this. The first step is being aware of your own behaviour and habits. Make time for yourself and reflect on yourself. Ask yourself the question: “Who am I?”. It is one of the most difficult questions in life. It is not easy to answer this question, as during our life we get a lot of labels. But a label is not who we really are.

We are adjusting ourselves to the groups we are living in. There is nothing wrong with that, if you can be who you are. But a lot of people are losing themselves. They can’t find the balance. So it is important to take it slow and reflect on yourself. Are you having the life that you like to have? Or do you want to change something?

Be mindful. When you slow down and are aware of your own behaviour, then you can start to change things. Do it step by step and be grateful for every good change you make. If you do things every day it is easier to create a new habit. If you have more healthy habits, it will make you more happy. In that way it can also change your mindset about yourself. Be kind to yourself and learn to love yourself. In that way you can achieve much more and influence the people and animals around you. Invest in yourself and you will make our world more beautiful.
