#121 — Conquer your bad habits or they will conquer you. Rob Gilbert

A habit takes 21 days to establish and it will take at least that long to break. When you are trying to break a habit, give yourself frequent rewards for good behavior. Positive reinforcement works on people as well as animals. Know you will be mightily tempted when you are feeling stressed. When you do slip, don’t beat yourself up which could make matters worse, just remind yourself that what you are doing is difficult but in your own best interest. It helps me to remember, “Progress Not Perfection.”

About sand1

When I was young, I made a lot of bad choices. The only way I knew to dig myself and my family out was to go to the library, always hoping that the next book I read would change my life and thankfully, often many of them did. Out of gratitude for the happy life I have now, I decided to share what I have learned, and continue to learn. I hope that Tuesday Tips helps you as much as they have helped and continue to help me.
