I hate to compare us men and women to dogs, but if it works for them it should work for us. When you are training a dog, if you consistently do certain things five days in a row, the dog has generally gotten in the habit of doing it. So that could apply to things that we should be doing as well, drinking 8 glasses of water per day, getting 8 hours of sleep, getting in 30 or more minutes of exercise daily, and do not sit and nibble on food in the evening as you are watching TV. If you just have to have some little thing in the evening, then try eating a handful of green or red grapes. They have a nice crunch to them.

At the start of each new month, I pick ONE new goal to work on during that month. Generally, I pick these goals based on things I've learned collectively along the entire journey. After a month, they usually are entrenched. Previous monthly goals which are now a part of my lifestyle:

1) Sparking 10 Minutes of Exercise daily (since 2008)
2) Focused on each time I find myself slouching, using my core muscles to pull my self to a better sitting or standing posture (I'm still doing this one years later).
3) Dec 2017 on rebounding every day for a minimum of 100 jumps.
4) An exercise video a day (blogilates website).
5) and May's current challenge: #saladaday
and many, many more....

When creating new habits, I have learned that I MUST always be aware of my actions. I unconsciously self-sabotage myself all the time!

I agree. Changing habits are hard if the new habit is not going to become part of a person's lifestyle. For instance, it's important to stay away from the smoking sections of places, because if a person who's stopped smoking decided to sit in the smoking section, they're more likely to keep smoking than if they avoided it.

Be conscious of what you want to change and have a plan of how you are changing it. It's a step by step process that requires attention and repetition.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. [Winston Churchill]

Realize that our mistrust of the future makes it hard to give up the past.
Dare to make your own history; be yourself and lead by example. [Darie Lapp]

You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough. [William Blake: Proverbs of Hell]

One suggestion that I have is to start by making only one change at a time. Sometimes, we want to change all our bad habits and it gets to be overwhelming. When we get overwhelmed, we end up failing and then beat ourselves up over it. Start with one thing. Start by taking a 5 minute walk everyday or start by eating an apple with breakfast or anything small that you want to do. Once this new habit becomes "second nature," add or change something else. Before long you will have a whole new set of good habits.

All of us have habitual things that we do everyday. How can we break those habits?

One thing that we can do here on SparkPeople with our trackers for fitness and for nutrition is a week in review. At the end of the week look back at your trackers and make notes of any trends, healthy or not, that you see there. That way you can plan for the upcoming week and think of ways to keep the good trends going and also to find ways of changing the "not so good" trends. That is one suggestion.

What is your suggestion?

Thanks for posting. Good luck on your challenge to FIND30!
