5 Inner Habits to Swap Out ASAP

Hi friends! Quick and friendly reminder that every day is an opportunity to adapt healthy habits and drop habits that are holding us back. Here are five old habits that you may want to swap out ASAP.

Swap this
1. Complaining: We all have good and bad days, but let’s be honest sometimes we sabotage ourselves by complaining about everything. Your coffee wasn’t up to par or you were stuck in traffic this morning and got to work late. Wayne Dyer said it best, “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Bruh if those aren’t bars, I don’t know what is. Yes, you could find a hundred things to complain about, but I’m sure you could also find a thousands reasons to be grateful. Make a conscious decision to stop complaining. Catch yourself in the act and then rectify it by replacing it with something that you’re grateful for.

For this
Gratitude: There’s always something to be grateful for — your health, family, food on the table, and especially being able to wake up another day. I know there are times that those blessings can be quickly clouded by all the noise that surrounds us (social media, news — honestly, wtf?!) If you find yourself sinking into that yucky, negative space, shift your focus onto things that you’re currently grateful for. It could be ANYTHING, even an avocado that is ripe and beautiful, because honestly there’s nothing better than that.

Swap this
2. Judging: You may be thinking “Me? Judge? No way!” If you honestly never judge anyone, then I applaud you! Unfortunately, I feel that we have been programed to judge each other — for no logical reason. Judging someone doesn’t help the person you’re judging and it sure as heck doesn’t help you. What someone does should not matter to you unless it directly affects you, which most of the time it doesn’t.

For this
Mind yo’ business: How a person decides to live their life is none of your business. Most times, I feel we judge someone because we see ourselves in that person or we judge them to avoid our own shortcomings. Every day is a chance to evolve as a person and become more self-aware. You can’t truly do that if you’re busy judging someone else.

Swap this
3. Reactive: When someone does something that makes us mad or sad, we tend to react without thinking and seldom does that ever work out in our favor. I had just preached to someone really close to me about not succumbing to people’s opinions of us and God tested me that very day. I was put in a situation where someone was doing just that and it took everything in me to not react out of instinct. I thought about it and I came to the realization that this person is clearly unhappy and holding grudges that aren’t valid. Instead of being angry, I just felt pity for them. We need to stop reacting to things that do not serve us and destroy our peace. If you find yourself lashing out over insignificant things then maybe you need to dig a little deeper to find the underlying issue.

For this
Compassion: Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing of. It’s not our duty to try and fix anyone because even if we wanted to we can’t. I do believe it’s important to understand why someone may be reacting the way they are. For example, in my case with the person that tested me — I was later told that they’ve gone through hell with a relationship and although it doesn’t justify their actions it does prove that the issue is not with me — the issue is in their own personal life.

Swap this
4. Playing the Victim: A person that sees themselves as a victim will always remain a victim. You are not a victim. Your circumstances don’t make you a victim, being a victim dictates your circumstances. If you find yourself blaming others for your life then you are playing the role of a victim. You are one decision away from leading the life you want. Stop making excuses for why you can’t.

For this
Self-Aware: Being self-aware has helped me understand that most times the issue isn’t anyone or anything else, but it’s me. I’ve been able to identify my weaknesses and work on them to make them strengths — like my need to be in control or working on being more patient. It’s a work in progress, but small progress is still progress. Pay attention to situations that trigger certain emotions. Listen to those hints and dig deep to figure out where they stem from.

Swap this
5. Negative self-talk: You spend the most time with yourself, so why not be in great company? Think about what you’re constantly telling yourself. What emotions do you feel most often? Everything you tell yourself makes an imprint in your subconscious mind. If you’re constantly bringing yourself down or speaking poorly about your appearance, then that’s all you’re going to be attracting. Habláte bonito, because ultimately it’s your duty q te eches flores. [Translation: Speak nicely to yourself, because it’s your duty.]

For this
Love yo’ self chula/o: We’re taught to be kind to others and treat others with respect, but we aren’t taught to treat ourselves the same way. Tell yourself how amazing you are every chance you get — not in an arrogant way but in a I am worthy way. You deserve the great things in life. You deserve the greatest love. You deserve wealth and health.
