Replacing long-held habits that you're pretty attached to doesn’t happen overnight. But it helps to be kind to yourself, recognize and acknowledge every small step you take, and have a guiding light that keeps you going when the going gets tough.
Although “breathing better” is a great incentive, it can be a little hard to define. Translate it into what it means for you and it can seem a whole lot more inspiring. Think about the following and see what’s motivating you to make some changes:
Is it being able to walk in nature again? Would you like to socialize with your friends more? Or perhaps it’s being better able to travel and see your family and loved ones?
What would be different?
What drives you to pick yourself back up?
Uncovering your motivation is all about finding what lights your fire. Once you know what does it for you, keep focusing on it and do whatever it takes to keep your motivational fire alive and burning.
