HOW THE POWER OF HABITS CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE by Alli Worthington

 

 

Hey Beautiful Ones,

I happened to open this email a few days ago and just had to share this post with you. So good! As you know from my Winter/Spring video series, I am a diehard believer in healthy routines and habits. Enjoy and love to hear your thoughts so leave a comment!

Love, Tiff 

 

Our small daily habits add up to our success or failure in areas of life. Understanding and mastering our habits (the big ones and the small ones) is a key secret of success.

There are truths I’ve come to realize about habits, whether they are considered good or bad habits, and whether people are trying to start new habits or shed undesirable ones.

If you’re looking to make change in your life, these six truths are sure to help.

 

1. BABY STEPS ADD UP

When trying to change a habit, the cold turkey approach is most often a recipe for frustration. I find that little itty bitty incremental shifts in behaviors is usually a far better way to ensure long-term change.

For example, if you want to incorporate more exercise into your life, you don’t need to say, “I’m going to join a gym and go for an hour every morning before work.” Instead start easily, such as resolving to walk around the block every evening and doing 5 sit-ups. Baby steps!


2. BUILDING ON ACHIEVEMENTS CREATES MOMENTUM

Once you start changing a habit with baby steps, you can build on that success. That walk around the block becomes too short, so you extend it to the next block. You find you don’t stop at 5 sit-ups, you keep going and add a couple more.

It’s all about momentum; an object in motion tends to stay in motion, both literally and figuratively. Once change is kicked into gear, more change happens!


3. AVOIDING TRIGGERS IS CRITICAL

Actions often happen as reactions to an event, situation, or other stimuli; habits are often prompted by an outside trigger. Recognizing what these triggers are can go a long way towards changing your behavior.

For example, want to stop gossiping? Maybe skip that coffee date that seems to revolve around who’s doing what in the neighborhood.

Want to stop snacking at night while you watch TV? Maybe read a book in a different room instead of turning on that sitcom. (I know, I know, easier said than done!)

 

4. BE MINDFUL AND AWARE

Do you reach for the sugar packets every time you have a latte, without even considering going without? Be aware of your actions and realize that you do have the choice to skip the sugar.

As you go through your day cognizant of what you are doing and the choices you have, you’ll likely be surprised at how much you do on a daily basis goes unnoticed because it’s second nature.


5. BELIEVE IN YOUR CALLING

Know that as you are living out your calling, through the power of Jesus, you are capable of achieving whatever it is you are called to do. You can conquer those bad habits, and you can adopt those good ones. But the entire house of cards can fall down if you don’t start with a solid foundation of confidence in your God-given ability to do so.


6. EMBRACE (LITTLE) FAILURES

What? Failure? Include it? Yes. If you aren’t failing now and again, then you aren’t challenging yourself. The person who never risks anything obviously isn’t going to fail, because they are playing it safe. Failure is just a stepping stone on the way to success!

Real change can’t happen if you don’t push yourself, and pushing yourself means potential failure on occasion. Fight the urge to be a perfectionist and allow the road to be a little bumpy on the way to your destination.

 

There you go. Six truths about the power of habits in your life that help you find success. Which truth about habits resonated with you? Let me know in the comments.

GO BLAZE, Baby!

 

BAMMMMM.

The falling down part, the struggle, the strain, the humility, the stretching, the minor disappointment…ugh, your light has been temporarily dimmed. You can feel it. Like one of those dimmer switches, your light is not it’s highest wattage.

 

But, it’s the refusing to give up…

choosing to rise,

choosing to brush yourself off,

choosing to learn the lesson,

choosing to shine again,

and allowing it to empower you to step forward into your next level of greatness is what true success is all about. Who feels me?

 

We are the Phoenix:
1. A bird in Egyptian mythology that lived in the desert for 500 years and then consumed itself by fire, laterto rise renewed from its ashes.
2. A person or thing of unsurpassed excellence or beauty.
___________________________________________

Life circumstances and horrible choices have nearly killed me, literally.  Back in the day, I have been in such a dark hole and have done random drugs with random people I didn’t know. I should be dead and certainly never thought I would see the light again much less strive to be full of love and light. We can’t have the light without the dark. Warmth without the cold. Highs without the lows.

Embrace those seasons you don’t feel so shiny and sparkly because thats when your are being refined and purified.

The embers are becoming a flame.

GO BLAZE, BABY!

DO THE WONDER WOMAN SPIN [Repost]

quote-courage-is-the-most-important-of-all-the-virtues-because-without-courage-you-can-t-practice-any-maya-angelou-5507

[Rarely do I have time to go back and browse through my blog posts, but I’m glad I stumbled (well, let’s keep it real.. God led me to) this post from June 1, 2013. June is always special to me because it marks the halfway point of the year and I love to pause and reflect on how the year is unfolding. Also interesting– this week marked the 3 year anniversary of Maya Angelou’s passing. I pray you take some time to reflect and get even more intentional about how you  want to rest of 2017 to play out.] 

________________________

Hey Wonder Woman!

Last week I watched an episode of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday with Maya Angelou.  Have you seen it? Her story of courage, triumph, bravery and success has been resonating with me all week.  In this interview with Oprah, Maya spoke of the concept of courage being the foundation of all other virtues (above quote) so it forced me to look inward at my own level of courage.  Often throughout my life, I have been courageous and brave, but there are also many times I have tucked my tail between my legs and chose to shrink back.  We all have a certain level of courage, but what is that special ingredient that gives us that little bit extra tenacity to tap into our inner Wonder Woman and push forward instead of shrinking back?  Can you think of a time right now when you consciously chose to dig deeper and dust off your red + gold bustier?  It’s a great exercise to reflect on those moments as a reminder for the next time we are tempted to be a coward instead of courageous.

Courage is the ability to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty or intimidation.

I takes courage to walk down the aisle and make the vow. It takes courage to wake up everyday and raise your child.  It takes courage to follow your dreams.  It takes courage to walk away from a toxic relationship.  It takes courage to speak your truth. It takes courage not to conform.  It takes courage to let go of your past. So, yes– I definitely believe in Ms. Angelou’s concept that it takes courage to practice all the other virtues consistently.  Cheers to all of us having more consistent courage this week, this month, this year.  Even if you have to fake-it-till-ya-make it.  You can be courageous even when you don’t feel like.  I love John Wayne’s quote, “Courage is being scared and saddling up anyway”. Go lock yourself in the bathroom and do the Wonder Woman spin if it will help….

THIS WEEK I WILL:

  1. Reflect on my many courageous moments.
  2. Dig deeper when I feel my wimpy self taking over.
  3. Not shrink back.
  4. Dust off my imaginary red + gold bustier.
  5. Remember God is always on my side.
  6. Be brave!
  7. Never ever ever ever give up.
  8. Not allow anyone to intimidate me.
  9. Face my fears head on.
  10. Pray to have more courage.
  11. Do the right thing.
  12. Put my shoulders back + WALK TALL!

Are you excited to see what new experiences and opportunities June will bring?  Let’s all focus on being more courageous than we’ve ever been.
I would love to hear your comments and two-cents on this topic even if it ticked you off and you are sick + tired of trying to put on your imaginary cape! 
Please like, share, tweet this post with your friends and share the affirmations.

THE NO SUN, Sunkissed Glow [New Video]

May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month so it’s the perfect time to answer one of the questions I am asked most often. How do you get that bronzy glow? I love a healthy tan, but it’s just not safe to bake in the sun these days like we used to with the baby oil or Hawaiian Tropic oil.  I’m sure we’re paying for it with the discoloration battle and premature aging. UGH! It’s totally possible to protect your skin all while looking like you spent a week on some beautiful tropical beach.   There are so many effective self-tanners (video topic coming next week) and bronzers on the market today so it’s easier than ever to keep that healthy glow.

 I don’t normally do makeup tutorials, but here’s my best attempt: 

 

  • The IT Cosmetics CC Cream can be found at Ulta.
  • Get the Heroes Beauty Bronzer HERE.
  • The ISH palette HERE.
  • E.L.F. products found at Target, CVS, Walmart, etc.

If you’re hitting the beach, lake or pool this Memorial weekend, here are a few more ways to protect your skin:

1// Use SPF 30+  and apply 20-30 minutes before sun exposure. Make sure to get your ears, hands + feet!

2// Wear a tightly woven hat and avoid those cute loosely woven straw hats.

3// Cover up. Cool, dark colored shirts and wraps absorb ultraviolet rays more.

4// Wear SPF 30+ lip balm.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET.

Wishing you all a blessed and safe Memorial Day weekend.

Love and prayer goes out to all the families who have lost a loved one serving our country.
