Trying to form a new habit? This FREE printable can help! Use it to encourage yourself as you track your accomplishments!
Like you, I wear many hats and juggle lots of activities. Yet, I often find myself wishing that I was more diligent in so many areas of my life! I’m talking about big things, like daily prayer and Bible reading, to little things like flossing my teeth regularly. I have decided that NOW is the time to stop wishing and actually start doing! It’s time to start making some changes! That is what this FREE “mom printable” is all about!
I often hear that one should begin with the end in mind. And, I do have a vision of the me that I really want to be…when it is all said and done. I hope that by deliberately putting forth the effort to form some of the habits that I long to have will bring me one step closer to the me that I really want to be.
So, if you would like to join along, feel free to download the printable that I originally created for myself.
How to use the 21 Days of Becoming printable:
First decide on ONE habit. Then, write down your reason for wanting to develop the habit. I have found this helpful because it reminds me why it is important for me to be diligent in creating the habit. It helps me avoid giving up!
Next, find some sort of quote or scripture to encourage you to forge ahead and push through to form your habit.
Mark your start date and goal date. The goal date should be 21 days from the start date.
Finally, start forming your habit! Each day put a check mark in the appropriate box under the column labeled 1st attempt. If you slip up and miss a day, start your 21 days of habit forming over using the 2nd attempt column.
Once you have spent 21 consecutive days forming your habit, mark your completion date and celebrate because you are one habit closer to becoming “the me that I really want to be!”
