We all have wanted to or thought about breaking up with a habit. For me, it was sugar, then coffee and now working on another one which I will talk about in the future. Breaking up with habits is difficult when you create a lifestyle that includes that habit. At first, it was finding a tea that tasted a bit like coffee, then it was changing my Starbucks/Coffee Bean order to be a tea instead of a coffee and last but not least changing my morning routine to include a tea brewing process.
Break Up With Habits
These changes didn’t happen overnight and there are still days I would love to have another coffee but I remember my WHY and my commitment to myself and I am easily able to shift myself out of that thought process and enjoy a delicious tea.
I interviewed author Sarah Ordo about her journey to sobriety as that is one thing I would love to accomplish in my life at some point. I also was so impressed with her ability to stick to her habit changes because they included letting go of friends, weekend parties and more. The fact she wrote a book on it beyond impressed me so I had to bring her on the show to dive into her headspace and understand how she was able to step away from alcohol for good.
