Tip Thursday - Starting Clean
Let's face it, we don't always have the best habits. Additionally, we often find them difficult to shift even if we recognise the need. There are a number of strategies that you can use to help you transition more easily and readily to new habits. One that is often overlooked is the Strategy of the Clean Slate. When we face life-changing moments we may find ourselves automatically making adjustments in our habits that we previously struggled with. For example, those that have struggled with losing weight and getting fit in the past find it far easier to stick with their new regimens after having experienced a heart attack. The attack served almost as a reset button. Being more strategic about these Clean Slate Moment,s as they arise, allows us to take advantage of them more fully, helping us in shifting our behaviours more deliberately. Any moment that represents a 'change' creates a Clean Slate Opportunity: new job, new house, new relationship (or end of one), new pet... any fresh start will do!
