Of course, implementing real change in our lives isn’t always easy. We are a culture and creatures of habit — equating the familiar with the warm and fuzzy concepts of safety and security, even if the “familiar” isn’t necessarily good for us. As a result, we resist change as long as we can, all the while talking about it, wishing for it, and promising to do it tomorrow.
The solution is to find a way to introduce change gently, to incorporate it into our daily lives in a way that makes it as minimally invasive as possible, so that by the time we realize we’ve made a major change, it’s already become a comfortable habit that we’ve learned to embrace instead of dread.
And as with so much else in life these days, there’s an app for that.
