15 Behaviors to Begin

Following on from our most popular post yet, 15 Behaviors to Give Up, I thought we’d flip the pancake and look at 15 Behaviors to Begin.

Right now. Today. Without delay. No excuses.

1.  Treating yourself as your best friend

2.  Practicing gratitude

3.  Facing your fears and doing it anyway

4.  Seeking help when needed

5.  Positive thinking

6.  Accept yourself and others without judgement

7.  Forgiveness

8.  Nourishing your body

9.  Managing your own responses

10. Making every day count to the fullest

11. Taking action – even if it’s only baby steps

12. Knowing you have everything within you that you need

13. Surrounding yourself with the people who help you raise your game

14. Putting yourself first

15. Doing what makes you proud of you

In the comments I’d love to hear which of these resonates with you (and I’ll write a post on how to do the most popular ones) and if there are any other habits you’d add to this list.

  1. Putting myself first ALWAYS resonates with me, because it’s something that I didn’t do for many years, and still have a hard time with…I have to get really conscious whenever I don’t feel good, and ask myself where I have been failing myself. It’s a constant battle for me! I need to go back and read the companion post, because this one was a thought-provoker!

  2. I love all of these! Great list! One I’m really working with at the present moment is:

    3. Facing your fears and doing it anyway.

    I just finished writing a very personal and vulnerable memoir and I’ve had to working through a lot of fears of judgement over the past few years to bring it to light! And while I still am scared, I’m doing it anyway. I guess that’s what’s called courage :)

  3. Ohh… I LOVE all of these! I am not sure which is my favorite. I think #11 Take Action- even if it is baby steps. I tend to get a little overwhelmed with everything I want to do, and then I freeze. Even today, this was a good reminder to just take baby steps and I’ll get there!

    All great points Sarah! I particularly resonate with behaviors 3 and 11: “Facing your fears and doing it anyway” and “Taking action – even if it’s only baby steps”.
    I am working on setting-up my own business right now, having always worked for third parties. It is scary to take this leap, especially with the current economic situation in Europe. Still, I believe that it’s worth it and I’m taking the necessary baby steps to make my dream come true!

  5. Well golly, that’s quite a list. I’d say for me it would be, managing your own responses. Taking a moment to let something sink in instead of quickly reacting is something I’ve been trying to be aware of for a while now. Not always so easy to do, but I think it’s important to take control of your emotions. Thanks for the reminder.

  6. This blog post couldn’t be more on time. I am having some health issues and am in need a reminder to be kind to myself including accept yourself without judgement.

  7. Treating myself like my best friend sounds really good. She gets luxury treatment, lots of support and I never let her down.
