IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE, CHANGE YOUR SMALL HABITS

Har du nogensinde tænkt på, at vores liv er lavet af alle vores små hverdagsvaner?

Hvis du har en vane med at motionere dagligt og spise sundt, så har du en rigtig god forudsætning for at have en sund krop.

Hvis du har en vane med at tænke negative tanker om dig selv, så har du større risiko for at have et dårligt selvværd.

Hvis du har en vane for at at bruge stofposer istedet for plastikposer når du handler ind, så vil det på sigt betyde rigtig meget for hvor meget plastik du undlader at kreere i denne verden.

Se faktisk, så er det alle de små vaner i vores liv der har den store betydning for hvordan at vores liv egentlig ser ud.

Hvilket også betyder, at hvis du vil ændre noget i dit liv. Så prøv at ændre små ting og giv det lidt tid. Vaner tager tid at ændre (21 dage siges det ifølge undersøgelser), så vær tålmodig med dig selv.

Hvis du for eksempel gerne vil være sundere, men du drikker en masse sodavand, så prøv på at skær ned på det, eller skære det helt væk.

Hvis du gerne vil have et bedre selvværd, så prøv at blive bevidst om hvad du faktisk fortæller dig selv i dit sind hver dag, og ændre det bevidst.

Jeg er selv helt vild med Albert Einstein citatet, der lyder således: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” (vi kan ikke ændre vores problemer med den samme tankegang we brugte til at skabe dem med).
Simpelt sagt, vi bliver nødt til at gøre noget nyt end hvad vi hidtil har gjort, hvis vi vil have et andet resultat end hvad vi har fået indtil videre.

English:

Have you ever thought about that our lives are made up of our small everyday habits?

If it is a habit of yours to exercise daily and eat healthy, then you are pretty sure to have a very healthy body.

If it is a habit of yours to think negative thoughts about yourself, then you are more likely to suffer from a bad self-esteem.

If it is a habit of yours to use reusable canvas bags instead of plastic bags whenever you go shopping, then this will mean that you avoid creating a lot of plastic waste in your life.

So actually, it is all the small habits in our everyday life that has adds up and decide how our lives actually look like.

Which also means that if you want to change something in your life, then try to change some small things and give yourself time. It takes time to change a habit, so be patient with yourself.

Hvilket også betyder, at hvis du vil ændre noget i dit liv. Så prøv at ændre små ting og giv det lidt tid. Vaner tager tid at ændre (21 days is what research say), så vær tålmodig med dig selv.

If you, for instance, want to be healthier, but you drink a lot of soft drinks, then try to cut down on it, or cut it completely out of your life.

If you want to have better self-confidence, then pay attention to how you think about yourself in your mind, and consciously change it for the better.

I absolutely love the Albert Einstein quote that sounds like this: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them“.
Simply said – we have to do something differently from what we have done so far, if we want another result than what we have gotten up until now.

GOOD BOOKS – BETTER THAN BEFORE

Jeg har lige læst bogen ‘Better Than Before – Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives‘ * af Gretchen Rubin, og tænkte at jeg lige ville komme med en lille anmeldelse af den, hvis det kunne være noget for nogen af jer derude. Gretchen Rubin har også skrevet bøgerne ‘The Happiness Project’ og ‘Happier at Home’, som har fået stor succes. Jeg ELSKEDE denne bog.

Gretchen går i dybden med det med at etablere gode vaner, for at få sig et bedre liv. Hun identificerer mennesker under forskellige kategorier, og siger at hvis man lærer sig selv bedre at kende, og ved hvordan man er – så kan man også ændre nogle ting i sit liv, sådan så man ved hvordan man skal agere i forskellige situationer. Det kan være noget så simpelt som fx, at jeg ved at jeg kan blive irritabel og få det dårligt, hvis jeg bliver alt for sulten. Dette kan jeg så sørge for ikke sker, ved altid at have noget mad eller en snack med. Det hele handler om at vide hvad der hjælper en til at få et bedre liv, og vælge at se på livet som at man enten kan acceptere hvor man er, eller gøre noget ved det og ændre på hvor man er.

Super fin bog, især hvis man er interesseret i vaner, og glæde. Jeg har lige købt hendes bog ‘The Happiness Project’, og det er en af de næste bøger jeg snart skal igang med, og den glæder jeg mig virkelig også til at læse.

Har du læst nogen af Gretchen Rubin’s bøger? Og hvad syntes du om dem?

I’ve just read the book ‘Better Than Before – Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives‘ * by Gretchen Rubin, and I thought that I would make a little review of it, in case some of you out there wanted to read it as well. Gretchen Rubin is also the Author behind ‘The Happiness Project’ and ‘Happier at Home’, which are both New York Times bestellers. I LOVED this book.

Gretchen goes into depth with establishing good habits, in order to get a better life. She identifies people under different categories, and says that if you learn to know yourself better, and know how you are – then you can also change some things in your life, so that you know how to act in different situations. This can be as simple as fx, I know that I can get irritated and feel bad, if I get too hungry. I can make sure that this doesn’t happen, by simply just bringing some food or snacks along with me all the time. It’s all about knowing what can help you to get a better life, and choose to look at the things in your life and either accept them, or change them.

It’s a lovely book, especially if you are interested in habits, and happiness. I’ve just bought her book ‘The Happiness Project’ and it’s one of the next books that I’m going to read, and I’m looking so much forward to it.

Have you read any of Gretchen Rubin’s books? And what did you think about them?
