How to change in a month

Well. The title should be How to successfully change in a month. About a week ago, I found an article published in some newspaper that gave me the idea for the perfect change formula, and thats what I am gonna talk today.

We are routine animals. We live following algorithms, obligations… And we get used to them. And if, for whatever reason, something suddenly affects our life-pattern, we get certainly unstabilized. So, having in mind that unexpected changes in our lives are often seen as something harmful, I have designed a pro-change to-do list. This especially works if it is used to solve some bad habits…

  • WEEK 1: Just be aware that you are going to change your life/mind/style… You just have to think and imagine how good would you be after you follow those steps. Enjoy the moments, feel the victory. 
  • WEEK 2: Think about ways to change. But just think about them. Write them on a paper, a notebook or just keep it inside your head. Try to schedule them: one change per day. 
  • WEEK 3: Progressively, try to apply the steps you designed during the week 2. Force yourself to fulfill all the changes, even if you are unconfortable with it. 
  • WEEK 4: Mantain the changes implemented during week 3. If you can last for two weeks, you will have implemenented a new habit to your life. 

And that’s it. However, the most difficult part resides on week 0: to have enough humility to localize your bad habit and enough willingness to fight it…
