Children’s habits can create an unhealthy and unproductive mindset. In order to change that, you must start at the beginning. Create a routine with your child early on. Let them take a bath before bed so they don’t have to get up in the middle of the night to do so. This can prevent drastic changes in behavior later on.
One thing that many people struggle with is where to start. It seems like there are never any good habits and bad ones pop up everywhere. I was always looking for the perfect time, place, and thing to do in my life when, one day, it hit me. I realized that every minute of my life counts and right now is as good as it’s ever going to get- so stop worrying about whether something is “right” or not because it’s just not possible!
The words we speak and the thoughts we think shape our world. Those words and thoughts are continuously being fed from childhood on, shaping our perspective as adults. By finding ways to consistently nurture your mindset, you can begin to understand just how powerful this is.
Young people are the leaders of tomorrow, but they have to make a lot of decisions today. These include whether or not they want to smoke, what they are exposed to on social media and how they choose to spend their time. The effects of these choices will control their mindset for the rest of their life.
Over time, you’ll create a mindset that is new to you. Your habits are the result of your experiences and what you’ve learned from them. Your mindset is a by-product of the patterns in your habits, thoughts and emotions.
The idea is that we should start young to create habits that will change our lifestyles and help us live healthier and happier lives.
