Creativity is a habit, and the best creativity is the result of good work habits. -Twyla Tharp
Sometimes we are so comfortable with our habits that it is difficult to decide if they are good or bad. Creativity is like a habit for me now which I am thankful for and here are few more-
Plan the Day Ahead: I like to plan beforehand as it helps me to take a few minutes and think ahead. I like to shut my eyes and visualize about the day. Try it and you will be surprised how your visualisation becomes reality.
To Do List: I make one ‘To-do’ list every day in my diary and write down all the things which I am planning to do that particular day. It is a habit which I love and can’t do without it. I used to experiment with different things in college during exams like color-coded writing, post-it note reminders, etc. in school and college.
Gratitude– This is a habit which gives me time to be myself and opens my eyes to see that I have lots of good in my daily life which I should appreciate. Gratitude can make us nicer, more trusting and more social.
No junk food- I am trying to follow ‘No Junk’ policy in my home. Healthy eating habits are not that hard to follow if you know what to replace junk food with. Food can be nutritious and yummy too with some changes here and there. Bad food habits are not good for health, so, focus on these 5 bad food habits that can affect you and your health.
- Eating too much junk food– Fast food is easily available in markets and the younger generation is addicted to it. They find burgers with soda, fries, and other such food items as convenient and of course delicious as they have extra sugar and salt in them. But they can lead to many health problems later in life.
- Eating even when not hungry-: Pay attention to your hunger signals and switch to healthy snacks. You will see a difference in your weight and overall health.
- Skipping breakfast– I always suggest people not to skip breakfast as it is the most important meal of the day. If you are running late, carry a fruit or a glass of juice, milkshake, with you. But don’t make it a habit to skip it completely.
- Emotional eating- Many people eat when they are sad, angry or are in a bad mood. This habit is bad for health as it leads to weight gain and other health problems. Try distracting your mind and engage in some activity.
- Eating fast- Eating quickly can lead to digestive problems and overeating too. Try taking small bites and stay relax while eating.
With determination, anyone can fix bad eating habits, and get to a healthier weight. Do you have any bad food habits?

Everyone grows up with bad eating habits. Most bad habits are learned at an early age but some develop through a lack of knowledge or general indifference. For optimal health and weight loss, it’s important that you get rid of your bad eating habits. The truth is that most of us do not have a very healthy diet. We indulge in sugary, salty, and greasy foods. For a lot of us, it has gotten to a point where even our vegetables need to be sweetened or greasy for us to enjoy them.

Understanding your eating habits is first step in changing them but unfortunately many people don’t even know that what they are eating is junk. Thanks for stopping by .

Eating habits is one thing I am always concerned when it comes to my children. It is always a Big No No to junk food, whatever food they want can be prepared at home, just no MSG. I have also made it necessary to practice Gratitude, cultivated into them like a habit.
For women – emotional eating is a big problem, good that you have noted that here.

Agree with the pointers you have shared, Deepa. It is true that having good and healthy eating habits reaps benefits for a lifetime. Fixing bad eating habits take a bit of determination, but once you do that, it’s best in every way!

Yes Shilpa..agree that it takes determination but its all worth it in the long run. thanks a lot. 🙂

Really sensible points Deepa. The simple habits are the first we let go of, so sad it is. I agree with planning things ahead as it reduces the stress in last minute deliverables. Bad eating habits is something I am guilty of. A good nudge to do better at that, thanks 🙂
