Kick Bad Habits to the Curb

Stuck with your Medicare goals?

Do you ever feel like you’re spinning your wheels when it comes to planning for your Medicare??

We suggest that it’s time to take a look at what you do on a regular basis that is holding you back.

There is a shortcut, a simple hack to be able to get more done, and I’m going to reveal it to you now.

It’s your habits.

Right now they are probably working against you by sabotaging your efforts to enjoy peace of mind knowing you’ve got the best Medicare coverage. But, you can turn that around so your habits help move you forward faster than you could imagine.

Because a habit is something you do that doesn’t take any thought or energy on your part. Imagine having something that powerful working for you. Read on to find out how you can do just that.

1. Start with the What

How do you know which habits to keep and which to dump? Examining your habits is often difficult

The easiest place to start is by identifying the habits you already have and write them down.

Then, you can ask yourself if those habits are slowing you down from planning for your Medicare.

Here’s an example. Let’s say your goal is to lose weight. You may have a habit that when you sit down to watch your favorite TV show you always choose to eat an unhealthy snack. The habit isn’t the action of watching TV, it’s choosing the snack with that action.

Then label your habits as either helping, hurting, or neutral to you. If you are able to pinpoint the problems and work to make the change from hurting to helping, you are well on your way to achieving the peace of mind that comes with good, healthy decision making.  

2. Replace those self-sabotaging habits on paper first

Once you know what you are doing without thinking, you can start replacing any old, self-sabotaging habits with new, self-serving ones. Make a list of the things you would like to put in place to replace your bad habits.

In the example above, you could write down that you will grab a healthy snack every time you sit down to watch TV.

3. Give yourself time

At one point, scientists believed it took 21 days to create a habit.

That miraculously on day 22, you wouldn’t want a cigarette, you would love exercising, or you would crave vegetables instead of chocolate cake.

In reality, positive habits only take hold when we start to crave them instead of our old ways – which can take up to 60 days.

Fortunately, two months is not long when you consider the impact great habits will have over your lifetime.

How do you think your new habits will catapult you to success with your Medicare journey?
