How to Develop A Habit?
Developing a habit is a conscious decision for it to become second nature in our lives. The more you practice, the more you get better at it. To live a more meaningful life, you can choose which habit to let go and which one to keep.
“It can take anywhere from 18 to 254 days for a person to form a new habit and an average of 66 days for a new behavior to become automatic.”According to the Healthline.com,
Habits I Have Developed:
Prayer is a portal way to God. God is only a prayer away. You don’t need an appointment to converse with God. You can approach him with boldness when you believed in His Son Jesus Christ.
Jesus came not to condemn the world but to save the world through Him.John
How should I pray?
With humility and honesty.
He is Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Omnipresent. (All-knowing, All-Powerful & Ever Present)
the Book of the Law shall not depart from his mouth but he shall meditate in it day and night that he may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then he will make his ways prosperous and then he will have good success.(Read Joshua 1:8)
If we want to grow in our faith we also must take the time to read, study, meditate, and memorize the Word of God. The word of God is our weapon against any negative thoughts.

3. Write Your Thoughts Down
Ever since I was a little girl I was always fond of writing my thoughts down on a diary or journal. I used my journal to write my goals down or record any messages I receive from God. It may be a form of vision or a dream. Even from the verse, I received that day.
Writing on a journal for me has been therapeutic to sort out any negative emotions I have.Glennavelle
If I want to see progress in my faith or with my goals, I would reread my old journals to compare my progress from the previous year.
4. Read A Book
When I was a child, I used to immerse myself in books. I didn’t mind spending time alone. Nowadays, we can’t make an excuse for not reading because there are a plethora of resources online.
Reading is a fundamental tool to propel children for success,Glennavelle
As a mom, I want my son to develop a habit of reading and the love of learning. I believe that learning doesn’t stop at a building. Learning should be continuous throughout our adult life.
Why Reading Is Important?
Reading can be beneficial to help us expand our vocabulary. Whenever I am unfamiliar with the word meaning, I would look it up from a dictionary or use my cellphone to google a specific word for the definition.
5. Time Management
We are given 24 hours in one day, and it is up to us how we allocate our time. We can either squander it towards a task that can’t benefit us in a long run or utilize it for something great like learning a new language, starting a business, or starting a hobby that we have been putting off. Time is precious because once we lose it we can’t take it back.
Taking the time to take good care of ourselves is a form of respect not out of selfishness. I used to think that way that if I take the time to dress nicely and apply make-up on then I am a self-fish or narcissistic mother. But it is far from the truth. I believe that as a woman, a wife, and a mother we can function better when we take the time to take good care of ourselves.
How do we expect ourselves to take good care of the people in our lives if we ourselves have been taken for granted?
Don’t expect anyone to good care of you. You owe it to yourself to look out for your well-being because what will happen if you are no longer here watching over your household?
7. Avoid Wasting Your Time
This ties in with time management. When we choose to use our time with watching too much television or browsing through our social media instead of using it with something far more important, I believe we can live a far more meaningful life. This year, I have told myself that I am going to live life with purpose and with a clear vision in my mind so that I can achieve the goals I wanted for my life. When we have a clear vision of what we want, we can allocate our time wisely and efficiently.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit .”— Aristotle
