How to Change Your Old Habits And Keep Your New Ones For Good
“We become what we repeatedly do.” - Sean Covey 2019 is right around the corner and if you have habits you want to change, this video goes over ways you can do so. My suggestions include: 1. Making a commitment and believing in yourself. 2. Keeping cues and rewards but replacing the routines. 3. Changing the environment to work for you. 4. Being part of a support group. All in all, each habit is different and hopefully one or all of these steps can help you. Changing habits is experimental and outcomes are different for each person but they can be changed. I wish you well on your road to making those changes and have an awesome 2019!

Comedy Tells The Truth – Can You Handle it?
Comedy tells the truth. And the truth is that we are human and we are not perfect. What doesn't help is that life throws us a bunch of bananas and is also imperfect in itself. So striving for perfection can cause a great deal of psychological and emotional stress. The way to go is to strive for mastery instead, or doing your best while continuously improving. Too many tip-top quotes in comedy, but here's a few: "We also need comedy. Comedy reflects the fact that most of our lives include a full spectrum of events and emotions, from tragedy to bliss. Furthermore, says, we trust comedy to handle all of that honestly." - Zach Galifianakis "Comedy is the art of telling the truth about what it's like to be human." - Steve Kaplan “From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere!” - Dr. Seuss "Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long shot." - Charlie Chaplin "Humor is just another defense against the universe." - Mel Brooks "Perfect people are the scariest people to me." - Leslie Mann "If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide." - Mahatma Ghandi “Laughter is the best medicine.” - Who ever said it. "Quotes are for dumb people who can't think of something intelligent to say on their own." - Bo Burnham Give Credit Where It's Due: The Dude Abides – Handle the Truth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtpOtFIEkbs&t=166s The Office US – Andy Gets A Butt Tattoo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVnh9NqFvZQ Key and Peele – Andre and Meegan's First Date https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qswjaM5yCro Lost Genre – Kristen Wiig is Incredibly Funny https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2IXAI0dZK0 Etienne - Southpark World of Warcraft Cartman bathroom https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9F8bs_THKiY So I Won't Get Sued.

Self Awareness And How We Can Get Better At It
“Self awareness is the ability to take an honest look at your life without any attachment to it being right or wrong, good or bad.” – Debbie Ford In order for improvement to occur, we must first be consciously aware of our thoughts, emotions, actions, and behaviors. Hence, self awareness is the foundation of personal growth. We can't grow until we can identify ways to do so and act upon them. We can start being more self aware by: 1. Practicing mindfulness. 2. Having alone time to be in touch with ourselves. 3. Taking the time to self-reflect. 4. Asking others about how we are.
