“Emotions create habits.” 💛👩🏻💻
This is my favorite realization among many other beautiful lessons I learned from Sun Life’s interactive workshop “Build Bright Habits to Reach Your Goals”.
I always thought that habits can be sustained only by will power. So whenever I fail to pursue a habit, I blame my mind. 🧠 I blame myself for not being determined enough. I blame myself for not having that “mental toughness” to push through with good habits like working out, investing or working regularly on a passion project.
The Sunlife workshop made me realize that forming habits has also a lot to do about our emotions. 🫀👀 It’s not just a mental thing. And I realized it’s true. When we feel happy and excited, it’s easier to stick to a habit. Other than having the mental toughness, it’s also important not to disregard our emotions when building bright habits.
We’re wired to pursue things we enjoy doing. 🥰 That’s why it’s very important to celebrate small wins.🎉
Pat yourself on the back for that small step taken. Eat that cake. 🎂 Doll yourself up. 💄 We deserve it. 😉
No matter how small your progress is, we should celebrate so we can develop that “inner shine” that will motivate us to consistently do something until it becomes a part of our system, until it becomes a habit.
