You must be wondering, what is a habit tracker now! and why do I need to use it! Remember in school when you heard about your average performing classmate who outshone everyone else in his Grade 12 results. It was shocking news, right? What do you think they did?
The answer is – their drive to make a successful life for themselves took over their lack of interest in studies. Hence the transformation. It came across as an overnight success to us but it took them daily discipline and commitment to reach that stage.
Some of our common woes are
- I want to make better use of time. Every night I sleep, thinking about things I didn’t do;
- It is difficult for me to wake up in the morning and I end up missing my school bus almost every day;
- Am I spending enough time outdoors?
And sometimes we are unaware of your moods/emotions. For eg: we are spending most of our complaining blissfully unaware. Eventually, it starts affecting our emotional health.
Forming good habits is easier than we think!
While breaking old habits is difficult as they have been deep-rooted in our minds. It is easier to form good habits.
The sole reason some people reach exceptional heights in their personal and professional lives. Is because they are mindful of their patterns and routine.
They choose which emotion/habit/behaviour pattern needs importance which doesn’t.
NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IF YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO IT.
Maintaining a Habit and Mood Tracker helps build good habits consistently. And keep unuseful behaviours and patterns in check.
How A Habit Tracker Can Help
As per studies, our brains form neuronal connections when performing certain activities. Repetition over time it becomes a habit. The brain doesn’t distinguish between bad or good habits.
For eg: For a child to leave their video game and start playing outdoors. Telling the child to leave the game won’t make them quit. We need to take a different approach.
Enrol the child in a sports class. As they start playing the sport. New neural pathways will form. Those neural pathways will become prominent over the gadget addiction. And voila! the child is away from their phone or iPad. A new habit of playing sports is formed.
When used diligently, maintaining a habit and mood tracker can work wonders for everyone.
Here’s how you can use the Habit Tracker.
