Routines

For the past 18 months, I have been on a journey of weight loss.  About nine months were spent losing pounds, and since then, I have been trying to maintain my lower weight.

How have I accomplished such goals? 

It came because I changed my routines.  First, I started waking up at five in the morning.  Then I began walking and occasionally jogging.  Along with that has come a low carb and high protein diet.  Meals are eaten early in the day, and I try to be done before six in the evening.  Each day has an entirely new look as my routines have led me to a new life, physically speaking. 

Actual change comes through adjusting our actions, especially our daily habits.

The same is true of our spiritual lives.  Determine what you want to become and then set up a series of regular actions to achieve it.  This can be Bible study, prayer, reading a Christian book, using the Youversion Bible app, or a long list of other possibilities.  Give yourself to the practices of learning, serving, giving, and quiet.  These spiritual disciplines will help to mold your mind but also the actions of your daily grind. 

Know that the first 28 days will be the most difficult.  Once the patterns take hold, they will become the steady rhythm of your new and improved life.

If you want to change yourself, physically or spiritually, start by adjusting your daily routines.  Each new habit will bring you one step closer to who you want to be.
