Determine the moment of the behavior you want to change
Behaviors can have an emotional impact on you. And that is normal, but if you are looking for changing it. I highly recommend that the first step… Determining the moment of the behavior that you want to change. Maybe you already know that and you can move on to the next stages of changing the behavior patterns.

Maintain and keep doing them until you achieve the new behavioral patterns. Changing habits can be similar to this process, but also have different things to do.
What trigger you to behave like what do you is important. Because it could ruin your process of changing it. So, I would also recommend knowing all the triggers that would make you do the old behavior. Don’t allow anything in your way to ruin changing it.

Something we don’t need in our life if we want to change behaviors. Rushing, in general, is not healthy and you won’t enjoy your day. But it also hurts the process as well.
The best way to deal with this is to go slow and carefully. Try to be early when going to work, school, the gym, or anything you need to go to. Because it will be a point for you to start rushing.
