Habits…

…. we beat ourselves up about habits, particularly bad habits, so called. Good habits we want to pursue and we beat ourselves up when we fail to grasp. But Shannon Crowe and Matt Kowald come up with the goods over on The Connected Yoga Teacher.

The first thing we need to consider is what we need to do. Then we set up routines based on existing habits, like teeth brushing. So, for instance, you can hook on one thing to an existing habit, like getting into the habit of doing a five to fifteen minutes of yoga practice straight after brushing your teeth. Then linking one more thing on. But they remind us that we learn one thing at the time.

I’m going to see how things go. I’d highly recommend you listen to this podcast. Powerful, generous stuff.

About Lucy Weir
