Habits are super powerful, unconscious patterns of behaviour that once formed, play a large role in influencing the direction of our life. To a certain degree, our lives go where our habits take us. Our bodies are the vehicle; our habits, the chauffeur. To form a habit, all you need to do is to repeat the activity over a period of time. It’s not always easy, but the end results are almost always worth it.
Make yourself accountable. A big part of commitment is accountability. Write down your goal or tell someone about your plans. Make yourself accountable to prove that you can do anything you set your mind to.
Prioritise your life. If a change is something you want to commit to, then make it a priority. Simplify and streamline your life. Look at your current daily routine and activities and see what really needs to stay and what needs to go. Maybe that means watching less TV or stepping away from social media so you have time to dedicate to your practice. Most people have plenty of time, they just don’t use it well. Chances are if you cut something out of your life, you won’t even notice it’s gone in a month.
Set a time and have a practice plan. A lot of our daily routine is determined by our habits. Since you’re trying to make yoga a habit, figure out the best time of the day to get on your yoga mat. Morning or evening doesn’t matter so much as picking a time and then sticking to it as best as possible. Maybe there are certain classes you want to attend. Plan for it. Remember, you’re trying to form a habit, and consistency will help with that.
