Good morning! Today, I wanted to share my experience with building new habits and how motivation ebbs and flows throughout the process. I recently started waking up at 6:30 am without an alarm, which was a significant achievement for me after struggling to get back on track with my routine for some time. In this blog post, I want to explore the importance of recognizing that motivation comes and goes, and how starting small is the key to building new habits and staying consistent.

The Importance of Recognizing Motivation's Ebb and Flow

We've all been there, feeling demotivated and struggling to keep up with our goals. Whether it's working out every day, eating healthy, or waking up early, it's normal to have setbacks. The important thing is to recognize that it's human nature to fall back into old habits and not beat ourselves up about it. Instead, we should focus on trying every day and not giving up.

Starting Small and Staying Consistent

When starting a new habit or routine, it's essential to start small and focus on consistency. For example, if you want to be the type of person who works out every day, you don't have to do a full workout every time. Instead, aim to do ten push-ups every day, and soon enough, you can say you work out every day. Similarly, you don't have to wake up at 5 am if you're used to waking up at 9 am. Instead, set your alarm for 7 am and work your way down. Small steps lead to significant progress over time.

Final Thoughts

Building new habits is a process, and motivation comes and goes. It's essential to recognize that setbacks are normal and focus on consistency by starting small. So if you're struggling with a new habit or routine, remember that it's okay to have setbacks and not beat yourself up about it. Keep trying, start small, and celebrate every small win along the way. Happy Tuesday, and let's get started on building those new habits!
