Review of Change Your Habits, Change Your Life
Change Your Habits, Change Your Life is a well-written self-help book about habits in which the author guides on how to develop a sustainable habit system for a lifetime to make life better, healthy, and productive.
I decided to read this book as many of you know I’m not the most organized person and I’m terrible at planning or making planning a habit. It’s not like there is no schedule in my life but it keeps changing as per my kid’ clock and not every day are same when your kid is hyperactive which often makes it hard to form a new habit or stick to habits I already have, so I was hoping this book might help with that.
I loved the beginning the author started with a personal life story and how and what made the author become a famous habit coach and also what makes this habit book different from other popular habit books like ‘Atomis Habits’ and ‘The Power of Habits’.
It was interesting to read author’s definition of the ‘Habit‘ – “An action or thought that is repeated at a set frequency. This may or may not become subconscious over a period of time.” I agree with what author said about how habits are routine and how routine are a series of habit train, some turns into a ritual that is tied to our emotions. I loved author’s practical and realistic approach of incorporating new habits into daily habit train and it made sense not to disturb the ritual in doing so.
Ashdin Doctor included all the important things in the book like,
How habits are ingrained in life, what are good ones and how to change the bad ones
How to change the comfort zone
Where we make mistakes
What makes habit not work
Different techniques of habit
Three golden rules
how to create an effective and productive system
how to track habits and tools we can use
If bad habits are really bad or not
How to break from the habit that is no longer serving the purpose
busting habit myths…
I absolutely loved those three golden rules, habit myths, and the author’s idea on good and bad habits. Another thing I loved is real-life examples and the exercises at the end of the chapters.
There are many takeaways from the book. Some I already knew and have followed while some were new to me that I’m currently trying. I loved the emphasis on the importance of consistency and practice, making the journey of creating habits easy and fun.
Did it help me? It’s too early to say but the book sure motivated me (the author wouldn’t like me using the word) to keep trying and make the necessary changes that I want in life.
Why 4 stars –
There are only 5 success stories in the book and certain kind of life scenarios. I wish there were more stories that covered more different kinds of life situations.
Overall, Change Your Habits Change Your Life is an insightful, informative, and inspiring self-help book with practical and realistic ideas and style.
Thank you for reading! Let’s chat..,
