Rituals are a great way to create a new habit or break an old habit! When we are trying to do something new and it stretches our comfort zone, the mind starts getting overwhelmed and finds it very convenient to procrastinate. A ritual with very low expectations make it easy to get started.
I have heard one my most favourite author Echkart Tolle share that he always sat for a certain amount of hours to write his book. Somedays he had great ideas and somedays he didn’t but that’s how he wrote 2 best sellers.
I am starting to experiment with this as well and works great. I developed a ritual to try something new everyday about 5 years ago and that had opened so many possibilities. One of my new ritual is to write down 10 new ideas everyday first thing in the morning. What I am noticing is that I am getting better ideas and can’t wait for that specific time to write them down.
So what ever you have been longing to do, start with carving out a few minutes once or several days a week and you start building momentum soon.
