How to get rid of bad habits once and for all? Time to be happy and successful

Do you want to achieve your dream and don't know where to start? Start with bad habits. Often we do not even notice how bad habits ruin our lives. We do not have an athletic body, we waste time on empty things, but we do not have the strength to resist it. The main enemy on the way to dreams and goals is not life itself, but your own weaknesses and shortcomings.

"To overcome bad habits is easier today than tomorrow." Confucius

We understand that hanging out on social networks, watching TV shows, wasting money on nonsense, wasting time and being lazy is stupid. We all know that drinking, smoking, overeating, little sleep and not exercising is harmful. But we can't do anything about it.

But from all these shortcomings and harmful ones we become less happy. Bad habits drag us back and make us losers. Bad habits kill all opportunities and chances of self-fulfillment in life.

Neither circumstances, nor other people, nor the government, nor bad times, nor the difficulties of life prevent you from fulfilling yourself to the fullest. It is bad habits that prevent you from turning around and achieving something worthwhile. But maybe it's time to be happier and more successful? Maybe it's time to achieve what you have long wanted? Stop sitting on your ass and waiting for a miracle.

Get rid of it once and for all from bad habits. How to achieve yours?

Physical bad habits

It is very difficult to give up alcohol, cigarettes, overeating and other similar habits. There is only one effective way to deal with such shortcomings. If you can not resist bad habits, you need to complicate the path to getting them.

You can buy alcohol and cigarettes, but in a store that is not near the house, but much further away. A few kilometers from the house, so that it was necessary to specially get there on foot for at least half an hour.

You can smoke a cigarette, but after that you must do at least 50 push-ups. If you smoked 3 times a day, then 150 push-ups are waiting for you at home. A bottle of beer equals a 45 minute run.

You may drink and smoke a little, but you must abide by these rules. In parallel with these rules, start exercising twice a week. You can go to the gym or work out at home. Now there are many good applications for the phone, where there are workouts for home.

Moral bad habits

Do you like computer games, social networks, serials, news, aimless browsing on the Internet and lying on the couch? But because of this, you don’t have time to do anything, you can’t learn anything new, and even more so, you can’t become better. This is degradation. A lazy lifestyle is hard to beat, but it can be interspersed with times of rewarding activity.

You can do anything and relax, but not more than half an hour. After that, he should do business and useful activities for 30 minutes. Break each hour of free time into two halves. Time for rest and time for work.

How you will use the time for work is up to you. Work can look like playing sports, cleaning the house, learning a foreign language, reading books, knowing yourself, planning your life, improving in your professional field. Do useful things during "working" time, and then relax.

The most important enemy is not outside, but inside you. These are bad habits that prevent you from making your body beautiful and healthy. Bad habits prevent you from achieving something more than you dream of.

Do you want to achieve your dreams and don't know where to start? Start with bad habits.
