How To Learn Discipline — Ways To Avoid laziness

“Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you or makes you happy.”

As soon as you accept that it might be difficult, then the process can begin. No matter what bad habit you’re trying to break or a new routine you’re putting into place, the first day is the most difficult. Like starting ones home work or getting yourself to the gym. The moment you move in the right direction, the relief and motivation kick in and you’re immediately feeling better about yourself.

  • Remove bad temptation — Whether that is junk food, Xbox, Cell phone while studying, etc. Get rid of it. “Out of sight, out of mind” actually does work and it should be your first step towards more focus and discipline.
  • Charge you phone away from your bed — This keeps me from phoning for two hours in the morning when I should be up and moving.
  • Download the Meetup app. and search your favorite hobby or sport — Great way to make friends, get out of the house, stay active, keep in shape and stay motivated.
  • Take a daily multi-vitamin & health or protein shake — Adding some uber healthy ingredients to your daily routine will lift your overall moral. You are what you eat!
  • Get to bed an hour earlier — I found by giving myself some buffer time for sleep helped a lot the next day. Night owls risk the chance of being completely fatigued the next day.
  • Buy one new article of workout gear Whether that’s hiking shoes, leggings, or tank top, if you’re like me, you get excited to wear new things and try them out in action. It might be that small boost you need.
  • Say “Yes” just a little more — One thing I learned this past few years is that you have NO IDEA what can happen or who you can meet by agreeing to do something.
  • Set your outfit out the night before — Doing this allows you to picture the game plan for the next day and have a more efficient morning.
  • Get creative with multi-tasking and reminders — Every week my phone reminds me to clean the betta fish tank. Of course, this isn’t something I look forward to but before I start cleaning, I put food in the oven. By the time I’m done cleaning, my lunch is ready. Not only does this make me feel a little more efficient but I now relate a tasty lunch after mundane task. I do my best to combine all sorts of stuff in my life. Especially when it involves tasks that don’t get me excited.
