Build consistent habits: 3 easy ways to stay consistent.

Build Consistent Habits

Having consistency. I’m consistently talking about it! That’s because it’s important! But I get it, it’s not easy to do. So let me tell you how to build consistent habits slowly so they can turn into actions that are second nature.

LET’S GET INTO IT!

Change Up Your Style

First,  ya gotta change up your style!

Many of us are always trying to change too many things all at once! We attempt to change habits or create habits all at once!

You know what I’m talking about… like on January 1st… “I’m gonna get healthy! I’ll start by working out every day. gonna work out every day. I’m never gonna eat french fries again! I’ll meditate, read positive quotes, and look at my vision board every single minute of the day. This years gonna be different!”

And what happens on February 1st? That’s right, we’re usually right back where we were on January 1st.

This is because we overwhelmed our system.

It’s great to have all these desires, and usually, they’re all relevant to our lives, but how do we set ourselves up to really get to where we want to be?

Gotta change the style up! How do we do that? PICK JUST ONE habit to build that you can focus on because this will alleviate the overwhelm in your system and be much easier to build!

Be Specific With The Habit

Next, you have to be specific with the habit you want to build.

This goes back to creating SMART goals, and even in the micro of building consistent habits, you gotta be  SMART about it and that starts with the S – specificity!

You can’t just say, I want to be healthier! You have to be specific about the habit and actions that are going to create a healthier lifestyle; I will work out 3 times per week – Monday, Weds, and Friday –  for 1 hour/per session. That’s pretty dang specific!

Doing this will take the guesswork out. You won’t have to think about “when will I work out? How long will I work out? What days?”

You’ll already have all the specifics figured out!

Pair Habits Together

And then you have to pair it up with another habit you already do!

Me, I drink coffee every single day. It’s a habit now, whether I like it or not. Honestly, coffee is life, I love it. But that’s neither here nor there. The bottom line is… it’s a habit that I do pretty much subconsciously now.

So, for me to create a new habit, I pair it up with my cup of coffee!

If I want to read the Bible every day. I do right after I pour my cup of coffee. I want to work out every day. That’s right, do it right after my cup of coffee! Which by the way is a great pre-workout!

So you get it, pair the new habit up with a current habit and the new one will get ingrained sooner than you think!

  • CHANGE UP YOUR STYLE
  • BE SPECIFIC WITH YOUR HABIT
  • PAIR THE NEW HABIT UP WITH A CURRENT HABIT

Being consistent is one of the most important components of living an #UNBREAKBLE life!

A quick intro to everything Tony...

Tony is the author of Disable Your Disability, a book about learning how to live the healthy life you deserve despite your physical limitations. He was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle bones) and has endured 70+ fractures throughout his life. At the ripe young age of 42, he had to embrace his disability to save his life, so against all odds, pushed himself through an 8-month physical transformation that ended up being just as important mentally and emotionally.

Tony also loves music. He’s been an emcee and DJ since the mid-80’s and has DJ’d professionally since 1996 (and continues to do so!). He’s created and released independent hip hop music, and found most of his success when he and his wife, Teemaree, released 3 albums as Dynamite Jive in the early 2000’s.

In addition to all this, Tony has worked professionally in the television/film industry since 2001, and created his own company, Egg Sandwich Media, to work as a one-man-production-band; wearing the hat of Producer all the way to Video Editor.

He currently lives in Detroit, MI with his wife and they enjoy their empty-nester life in the desert.
