Creating Habits Can Help You Stay Motivated

True love is for you and you can take action towards your dreams.

Creating habits can help you stay motivated. Creating habits can help you stay motivated in all areas of your life.

The habits we form can determine our success or failure. After all, habits already dictate a lot about our lives. We can think of our habits as being part of a practice. We know the difference between a practicing Catholic and someone who is not a practicing Catholic. The practicing Catholic, for example, goes to Sunday mass regularly. The practicing Catholic prays regularly and participates in the sacraments.

Developing good habits can help us to stay motivated when it comes to realizing our goals.

Let’s look at some examples:

1. Take care of yourself. If you’ve ever been sick, then you know it takes much effort to be productive when you’re sick. You might not have a positive attitude when you’re sick and not feeling good. That’s why it’s so important to take charge of your health. Carrying extra weight not only drags you down but affects energy levels which in turn affects productivity. Setting up some healthy habits such as going to the gym more often, or making changes in your meal plan will help you to stay motivated longer. You feel better with fun movement and when you nourish yourself properly. Your improved health makes this a win-win all the way around.

2. Revisit the reason you’re doing what you do. When I make goals, I tend to feel that initial surge of excitement for my goals. How about you? However, this motivation can tend to wane over time. I’m working on building a habit of revisiting my goals so I can keep the momentum of my motivation. What I will be doing is tracking tasks related to my goals.

I would like to do more videos on my social media and the reason I would like to make more videos is so that I can reach more single Catholic women. My journey to becoming married took longer than I had expected and I did get married. I want to show up more on social media to inspire single Catholic women that their dream of becoming married is possible. Since I’m now married, I can assist others in some of the struggles and challenges of being a Catholic single woman who desires the vocation of marriage, but sometimes may have doubts it’ll ever come true.

3. Be proactive. Build habits of being early, or do things that help you to think ahead. For example, make lists that keep you not only on task but ahead of the game.

4. Focus on small goals. If you’re dealing with a big goal, such as some serious weight loss, it’s easy to lose your motivation when it feels like you’re not making progress. Having small goals gives you milestones to celebrate and builds motivation back. These kinds of goals come from small changes, like planning to eat a little differently (cutting carbs for example), or taking the stairs instead of using the elevator.

5. Surround yourself with people who motivate you. That is an easy habit for you to build, in that it involves choosing a little more carefully what company you keep. Building a habit of meeting with this group on a regular basis not only keeps you motivated but has the added benefit of cementing relationships with those around you.

Building good habits is an awesome way to stay on track to reach your goals. The best part? As with any habit, if you do it enough, you’ll wind up acting without thinking, making motivation an automatic part of your life. How cool is that?

If you’re a single Catholic woman and would like to stay motivated regarding your dream about becoming married, you can surround yourself with people who can support you with your dream. Find other single Catholic women who also have the dream of becoming married. Gather a group of your single friends. You can pray for each other, read about saints who are married, read books about what makes a good marriage, and you can go on outings together. When you meet with people who can motivate you regarding your dream of becoming married, then you’ll feel more encouraged. You keep each others’ calling to marriage alive. You keep each others' vocation alive.

If you’d like to join a community of single Catholic women who also desire the vocation of marriage, you can reach out to me.
