Backup Plans Feel Good
By Greg Vanden Berge

Planning and creating a habit will not require any military training. Don't get carried away or become obsessive with a habit. Let's say for example you wanted to reduce the level of stress in your life, and soon your habit forming activities were actually raising the level of stress in your life.

This wouldn't be developing good habits, now would it. Plan your activities with a little leeway. If you desire to quit smoking and are now smoking 25 cigarettes each day, you have two choices, you can quit smoking entirely or reduce the amount of cigarettes you smoke on a daily basis.

If you choose to quit smoking completely, have a backup plan in your habit changing plan. You can't beat yourself up, if you find yourself running down to the grocery store to purchase a pack of cigarettes.

Don't quit because you run into a couple of problems along the way.

A good example of this would be to create a plan to quit smoking completely and if you find yourself in some sort of predicament where you need to smoke a cigarette, allow yourself up to five cigarettes each day for the first month.

This creates some success if you choose not to smoke any cigarettes the entire day. It starts to work on your subconscious mind and gives you a sense of accomplishment.

Feeling like you are getting somewhere is a big part in changing habits or developing them. You can always reassess your habit creating or changing plans at the end of every month or adjust them if necessary.

Whatever you do, don't stop, keep going, keep trying.
