START SLOW

 

 

Habits died hard,

Or so have we heard.

Its onto us whether we make those habits productive or deteriorative.

One can not achieve optimal state of health overnight, it requires immense amount of efforts and patience.

Start slow.

Maintain a habit tracker, for a week to begin with.

And slowly from the baby steps progress.

Challenge yourself a little everyday.

First we make our habits,

then our habits make us.

 

Happy detoxing!!!

How I started

I needed a change, not any small, timid change, I needed a paradigm shift.

I was unsatisfied with my job, the pressure was too much and the pay too less.

You see, the field I am in has crazy saturation, people are ready to work even for minimal pay and that makes it though getting a decent pay job.

I worked two shifts at my previous job, the time in between I slept to restore my energy.

For months I called out to my friends to let me know if their are any vacancies, any possible job better than this one but got no help.

Around March, I gave up.

I gave up putting my problems on others and I realized my life mantra,

I can help myself better than anyone else.

Took some efforts but I started calling every possible vacancies I came across,  after just three tries, I went to the interview got selected and secured the job.

But then came the real challenge.

I was to serve the notice period on the previous job and had to immediately join the second job.

So previously I worked for 8 hours, and now my work hours doing both jobs were almost around 14 hours.

This too shall pass, I chanted and for two months I toiled for 14 hours a day.

And it was worth it. All the struggle, the lessons, everything was worth it.

Now i got to work only 6 hours a day, and I get paid more.

It looks tough from the outside, people get stuck to the mediocrity, but the only problem out of it is through it.

 

Happy detoxing!!!
