You can start them or stop them. Hate them or love them. But habits, rule our life. And if your goal is to live a happy and healthy life, it's important that you know how to control these powerful monsters.

As for me, I'm in the middle of trying to break my own habit. To stop working past 6pm.

I've noticed working from home has pushed me into an interesting work schedule. 2 hours here… 30 minutes there. But it's also had me up late, working after dinner, or even pre-occupied when I'm supposed to be hanging out with my daughter. Oops…

On my journey to breaking this bad habit, I stumbled across this video. It's a great kickstart to your habit busting campaign!

What bad habit are you trying to break? Let me know in the comments below.

    I am trying to stress LESS. To not let the little things get to me. I am an extremely emotional and passionate individual by birth. This can be the biggest blessing or the most overwhelming curse. The second I open my eyes in the morning I am overcome with anxiety focused around all of the bad that is going on in my life and/or in the world. It varies from day to day but it is always there. I am focusing now on turning that energy to the good and to let the little things go. “Breathe in the good breathe out the bad” is my daily yoga mantra. It is hard, but I know I can succeed. The Daily Positive helps me loosen up a bit too. I look forward every morning to a message from you in my in-box.

    This may sound dumb – but I bite my nails when I read. Being in grad school, working in a library, and working on 2 large writing projects – I literally spend about 7-8 hours a day reading. (probably why I have bifocals at the age of 24 haha) It’s a nervous habit and its one I want to get rid of. More for personal reasons than anything too destructive.
