Shifting Your Habits

  • Category: Running Your Business

Chances are that your habits—both the good and the not-so-good—have been shifting with the pandemic, even if much of your work was already virtual.

How do you deal with the good habits you can’t practice now?

Replace them.

Replace the gym with a run or bike ride—gets you out of the house and you can still practice social distancing. Or maybe instead of lifting weights you lift your three year old or use detergent jugs instead of barbells.

The point is that you figure out SOMETHING that will allow you to keep up the habits that contribute to your success.

So far I’ve converted my gym workouts to power walking, added an extra dog walk to the day (Jackson is thrilled) and the hubby and I are figuring out how to still make date night special.

My work days still look largely the same (perhaps with a few more phone calls) and I’m keeping it that way because it works.

Of course, if you’re already managing all this chaos well, it does offer up another opportunity: the chance to ditch any not-so-good habits that may be holding you back.

There’s an argument to be made that when everything is changing anyway, what’s one more thing? I’ll leave that choice to you.

But I would love to hear what’s working for you—and if you have resources you want to share, please let me know that too.
