Starting small is key to overcoming the discomfort of something new. Use Micro Habits To Tackle Big Health And Productivity Goals To ease into a new ritual, the couple recommends setting a ‘trigger’ for the ritual. For example, if your goal is to write a book, coincide it with an already-established routine in your day. That could mean dedicating 10 minutes to writing after you’re finished eating dinner, or brushing your teeth. “When you feel as though you have to squeeze in an hour and a half, it’s overwhelming … but if you say ‘OK, for five m inutes I’m going to do this one task, it makes it more manageable, and it makes it so easy and so simple that it would be foolish not to do it,”. DAILY RITUALS WILL EXPAND YOUR IDEA OF ‘NORMAL’ After 60 days of working on a small ritual for 5 or 10 minutes a day, whether it’s working out, writing a book or building your own business, you’re going to see major progress. RITUALS WILL RENEW YOUR TRUST IN YOURSELF When we fail at what we’re trying to achieve, it’s easy to lose faith in ourselves. Creating ritua ls can help us regain that trust.

Creati ng rituals can help us regain that trust. “If we can do something daily and we can look at our calendar and say, ‘Look at that I’ve checked off … a week’s worth of doing this thing that I wanted to do myself, to achieve something that’s meaningful to me,’ that feels incredible, and it helps you continue to take steps forward” .

HOW CREATING DAILY RITUALS CAN WORK FOR YOU In creating rituals, you are going to have to accept a certain level of discomfort. The biggest challenge you’ll face in creating a new ritual is accepting the discomfort t hat comes with it, but it’s worth it. The good news is, small rituals are easy to start and maintain. Starting small is key to overcoming the discomfort of something new. To ease your way into a new ritual, coincide it with an already existing one. For example, if you want to write a book, dedicate 10 minutes to writing after you eat dinner. Daily rituals will expand your idea of ‘normal.’ After two months of doing a ritual every day, it will begin to feel normal to you, and you will begin to identify as someone who does that ritual. Rituals will renew your trust in yourself. When we fail at what we’re trying to achieve, it’s easy to lose faith in ourselves, but creating rituals can help us regain that confidence.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
