A Live ItWritten by Rachelle Disbennett-Lee, PhD
Real change happens only when it becomes part of our everyday life. When a change becomes a habit, it isn't something new we are trying, but becomes part of what we do as our routine. I was reading a Wynona Judd interview and they asked her about her diet. She replied that she wasn't on a diet; she was on "A Live It." I thought this was great because risk of a diet or any change is that we won't stick to it. We wonít live it. We will simply do it until we get results we want, or get discouraged, and revert to our old habits. A live it is not something that we are going to do for a short while, but something we will do for a lifetime.
Permanent change comes only when we integrate change into our lives and form a new habit. Everything we do is habit. From getting up in morning and brushing our teeth, to side of bed we tuck ourselves into at end of day. Habits might seem like actions that are hard to add to your life. But, there was a time when taking a bath was not a habit, and as children we might have even tried to get out of taking baths. Other daily habits that we have such as brushing our teeth or eating certain foods all are habits we formed at one time or another. Habits become habits because of repetition. If you do something enough times it will become a habit.

That is why specialists strongly advise you, every time you find yourself at a crossroads, to always take decisions by yourself. Obviously, question arising is: how can we know how to take it and which is best solution?
The answer is never going to be simple for some of us. However, there is a technique that can be of great help and employed regularly will have great results: it is called meditation and it has been used for centuries in certain rituals and by ancients civilizations. Even in old and famous books, like Bible, for example, we are invited to meditate, to discover and fight evil in us and by knowledge to gain control over our decisions and our lives.
How do we proceed when meditating? First of all, we need to be away from any source of distraction, because we canít analyze our deepest feelings and thoughts and watch a movie at same time. Secondly, we need to ask ourselves a series of questions that will help us to better determine who we really are. The questions should relate to everyday aspects:
