Sustaining Good Habits as Habits

Any task or activity is considered to be Habit if it’s done with determination, commitment, dedication and over a time does not require special efforts, its carried out continuously and remains as integral part of life.

Positive habits requires extra efforts in beginning, but there is no turning back if its enjoyed fully. Similarly Negative habits requires no efforts to start & integrates in no time but but but stopping and coming out of it requires same amount of efforts and commitments which Positive habits demands at the beginning.

When we stop positive activities or interests due to any reasons than resuming to such activities or habits is again a big task, it’s like starting from scratch and vice versa for negative habits. Be aware of such tendencies and must remain motivated and convinced on the path of determination.

First and foremost thing is not to stop or leave the progressive path whatsoever, that’s the best way to remain committed.

Mind always takes shortcuts and in search of effortless ways, does not want to challenge the comfort zone. It’s easy for mind to accept negativity and it chooses easiest way to sustain.

Just stick to the progressive tasks, activities or habits and its intensity can be reduced or increased from time to time but must never ever stop or derail. Remember over a time stopping and decommitting becomes habit, be aware about such patterns.

Restarting and resuming to the dream activities is a big task, as it is accompanied with procrastination which delays the resuming process leading to frustrations. It’s a mind game and be absolutely aware about what is needed for a breakthrough and what needs a red signal.

Forming a good habit is one thing but sustaining a habit, retaining a habit, staying committed to a habit is a continuous process.
