Mindless Versus Mindful

According to Webster’s dictionary a habit is a custom, a pattern, a routine, a practice of something we do without thinking, automatically. Many if us fall into many different habits everyday, some that are good for us and some that are not so good for us. We get into a pattern of doing the same thing everyday without even thinking whether it is a healthy choice or not, we just get accustomed to it. So when we are challenged to break those habits, it is very hard to do it. Here are a few tips to consider. Ask yourself, is this routine mindless ? What value do I receive from doing it?  What triggers me to do it every day ? Is it an indulgence or is it a mindful healthy choice? Challenge yourself to change your old mindless habits into mindful healthy habits!
