Becoming a Highly Effective Person Challenge – Review

Good morning 🙂

Thailand 5The next two weeks will be all about review of how the new habits settled, adjust if necessary and try  again.

The only way to fail in habit creation is to not do it, so no matter how you did, as long as you tried, there are no failures here.

Here is my initial review of these past 6 weeks.

New habit #1 – Drinking a cup of clean water with good salt first thing in the morning

This one was the easiest one for me, other than a day or two where i rushed out the door and forgot, I followed this habit every day for the past 6 weeks and I feel this one is a success.

The results of this are incredible too. My memory improved greatly and it continues too. This is an amazing shift for me since I noticed quite a decline in my memory over the last couple of years.

I also feel more energized, happy, positive and hydrated during the day even if I forget to drink during the work day.

How did this affect you? Share your progress in the comments below.

New habit #2 – Daily meditation

This one seems to be really challenging for me.  I tried mid day, evening and night meditation (as I rush out to work in the mornings I haven’t been able to try morning meditations yet). I seem to forget often to do it, or just have trouble sticking to it.

When I did meditate, I was happier, more positive, nothing bothered me, my brain was crystal clear, I could focus better, be more productive and much more.

So why is it that this habit is so hard to implement? Maybe it is my approach.

So for the next two weeks, I will schedule my meditation into my day, I will actually put it in my schedule with a reminder and see if this helps me keep up with it.

Did you succeed in implementing this one? If so, what did you do to help you stick with it?

New habit #3 – Morning gratitude

This one was a little challenging as well. I am not much for a morning person, my energy kicks in late in the evening and lasts through most of the night if I’d let it. I am a true night owl, so remembering to do something first thing when I open my eyes to an alarm clock was difficult.

When I didn’t remember first thing in the morning I remembered later. But closer to the end of the first week I decided to help myself, I did a little sign that says “Thank you” and hang it in my bedroom and I see it every morning and now I remember to say thanks every day.

Now that it is spring, it is easier to remember, there is so much to be grateful for. I wake up and see the mulberry tree outside my window covered with amazing large hanging flowers and I remember to be thankful. I go outside and see all the flowers and the sun on lucky days and I say my thanks.

So this one is also a success, and it helps me feel so fortunate. No matter how small or big the subject is, it makes me realize I have so much to be thankful for and I just feel blissful.

 

How did your past 6 weeks go? Did you succeed in incorporating these new habits? If not, how will you adjust them in order to incorporate them into your life?

Remember, the only way to fail is not to do anything in the first place. So go on and add love and bliss into your life and celebrate every little success.

Love,
