How to keep your habit going

Beginning

The most difficult thing about a new habit is to begin. It is easy to come up with a new year's resolution and make an effort for a couple of days. The difficult thing is to include a new habit in daily life - e.g. starting your day with a workout. "The beginning is half of every action" - one Greek proverb goes. There are many reasons why the beginning is the most difficult part. One such reason might be that you tell yourself that the effort will be more strenuous and difficult than it in reality is. Instead you should think of it as a small effort and tell yourself that you do not have to do so much today. Just a little. That will make it easier to begin, and once you have started you will often experience that things get moving and you will end up doing rather much anyway.

The early bird gets the worm

To most of people it seems to be easier to get things done in the morning. It might require that you get up a little earlier. During the course of one ordinary day many unexpected things might pop up. The longer the day proceeds the more things might happen. If you start up with your habit early in the morning few things have gotten in the way. As a bonus you directly got to do the things you strive for, and you can feel good about the start of your day!

Group training - the Qigong exercise Hold Qi up

Groups create good habits

By joining a group your chances of making your future habit into a reality increases dramatically. All members of the group have the same focus and help each other to get rid of distractions. To join a group is the same things as telling all others in the group that you will make an effort: All others will expect that you join the activities. If all the others in the group get going, others - as well as you yourself - will feel strange if you don't.

Group training

To practice Qigong in a group is something that we systematically do in Zhineng Qigong. This makes it easier for the participants to get motivated. The group training in Zhineng Qigong also serves another purpose. When we practice in a group we can get more Qi thanks to our Qifield. If you want to know more about Zhineng Qigong and the Qifield we recommend that you read the following articles:
