Have you ever taken a look at some of the things you are doing, or habits that you have, and wondered why you are doing them? Are there some you need to be letting go of, and releasing what no longer serves you?
This is especially important for those habits or routines that we have had for such a long time, that we actually never really think about them at all.
This can be a good thing if it is something that is just good for you. You know, like brushing your teeth, or exercising regularly. That is just so ingrained that it’s just not a question, it’s just what you do.
But other times, we have habits and routines that we started and keep doing, and perhaps need to stop to think: Why am I doing this? What am I getting out of this? Is it serving me in a good way?
Start releasing what no longer serves you.
Often we just hold on to things we do, that maybe did benefit us at one time, but no longer do. Or is okay once in a while, but becomes a bad habit when we do it all the time. Whether it’s how we spend our time each day, or what we eat, it’s worth looking at periodically. And releasing what’s no longer serving us.
A super simple common example could be watching hours of TV at night, every night. Maybe that’s what you really want to do because you say, you know what, I enjoy it, it’s my chance to unwind. And that’s great. But if you do look at it and find that’s just what you do on default, and realize you could use that time to do other things that you don’t seem to find time for, maybe it’s time for a change.
Other than things that are genuinely just bad for you, it doesn’t really matter what the answer is.
It’s your answer, and if it serves you in some way, and you’re good with it, that’s all that matters. But take the time to check in with yourself once in a while, and make sure. It’s too easy for time to pass spent mindlessly, and you can do better than that.
Pay attention and start releasing what no longer serves you. And make the most of your time with things that matter to you.
