In this section, we will add up various resources you might find useful as you continue to make different choices and shift your habits. If you find any ideas or resources you think would help other people, share them with us and we’ll add them to the list!
“If there is one thing in life that is certain, it’s that you will relapse and fall off the wagon.”
Many people think “falling off the wagon” and falling into old habits are a spur of the moment thing. But in fact, they are usually the final link in a chain of behaviours going back in time.
Next time you “fall off the wagon” and find you have fallen into an old habit, use the following document to try to identify the previous links in the behaviour chain. See if you can identify common patterns/features. This will give you a better understanding of why you fell into an old habit.
With this understanding, you are more likely able to disrupt this chain before the final, “old habit” link is reached.

Do you know the hardest exercise known to humankind? Taking the first step!
And because of this, it is very common for us to hesitate and put off doing things. Don’t worry, you are not a failure, you are just human. In fact, it is such a common phenomenon, we guarantee you will recognise any number of the following “barriers” to starting something…take a look and see which you can recognise in yourself…
Shifting our habits takes time and effort and we believe you need to be kind to yourself in the process.
You are not going to go from how you are now, to being perfect in a single step. In fact perfection is an unachievable goal. Perfection does not exist.
If you recognise this, and are committed to understanding your habits and why you make the choices you make, you can build your awareness to choose differently. This is an important step in you shifting your habits continuously week by week. So how do you do this?
