Make a Habit Scoreboard in order to increase your awareness of your actions.
The first step toward changing habits is to acknowledge them. And in order to do this, you must first increase awareness.
Make a list of all your daily habits, from the early morning until you go to sleep.
For example: wake up, turn off the alarm…
When you're about to do something, call out the activity and the outcome.
For example, "I'm about to eat this cookie, but I don’t need it. Eating it will cause me to gain weight and hurt my health." Point and call to mundane things to exercise your awareness even more. For example, when you leave the house, say, “I have a wallet, I have keys, I have my husband.”
For each behavior, ask yourself, “Does this serves me in the long-term? Does this behavior help me to be the person I want to be?”
Some of them will serve you, some will not, and some will not make a difference.
Acknowledge the habits.
Don’t blame yourself for bad habits. Don’t praise yourself for good ones. Just acknowledge them—that’s the first step towards changing them.
