ITA #40 – How to Harness the Power of Habits

By April 17, 2014 Podcast 10 Comments

Did you know that habits account for nearly 45% of the tasks we accomplish every day?! As moms, it’s important for us to consider what habits, good or bad, we are passing on to our children.

In this episode, you’ll learn how to harness the power of habits and make them work for you instead of against you.

    After listening to your podcast yesterday on “habits” I renewed my commitment to stretching right when my feet hit the floor! What a blessing to take time to care for my body in this way! Thanks for the encouragement to START AGAIN!

    you have enlightened me over a year ago to the benefit of waking before the kids and spending time with God and starting the day right, and every time i do, i never regret it. however, i regret every day that i don’t. i want to commit to doing it everyday even when im tired or didnt get great sleep because i was up with babies. your tip that just committing to the first minute and just doing a few minutes on those hard days rather than the full hour is good to keep myself in the habit and will make a difference in my day. i can so relate to the bad habit of not going to bed with the husband, and staying up too late on the ‘net eating snacks and chocolate. im setting myself up for failure the next morning. so i guess the answer to that is to commit to a new habit of going to bed on time and that will help me to reach my other goals, like getting up in the morning!! :)

    i dont have fb, tweet, instagram, or have a smart phone. is there a way i can participate in hello mornings challenge anyway?

    Really learning the value of one habit or good choice having a domino effect. Love the inspiration from inspired to action! Thank you Kat! The habit I want to build into my life is to write a portion of scripture out every day.

    Admiring the persistence you put into your site and in depth information you provide.
    It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information.

    Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS
    feeds to my Google account.

    Kat, your podcasts have been such a huge blessing to me. Over the last year, I have developed the habit of spending time with the Lord each morning, then fixing my bed each morning:-), then adding exercise and daily planning time to my mornings. Now it’s time to go big and do some big things that I have often left on a back burner because I felt inadequate–mostly because I couldn’t even accomplish small things on a consistent basis. Matthew 6:33 has become my life verse because, through prioritizing my habits and seeking His kingdom first, so many other things have been added into me! THANK YOU SO MUCH for inspiring me and so many others to ACTION!

    It’s going to be ending of mine day, except before end I am reading this great paragraph to increase my know-how.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for
    me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
