This Chooseday, let's QUIT the things that prevent us from moving forward. We all want to achieve good things, but don't like to admit that our habits and addictions hinder us from becoming the best versions of ourselves. Whether it's smoking, alcohol, negative self-talk, procrastination or sleeping too late, many of us can get ahead if we choose to quit whatever's holding back today. It's not easy quitting something we find comfort or familiarity in, but here are two ways to help us: 1. Focus on why you want to quit: Write a list of the positive changes you'll experience once you quit. Place that list on your workstation or in a highly visible area so you can see it frequently. It'll help to refresh and inspire your mind on why you want to make the change. 2. Replace the current habit with a different one: Instead of reaching out for that cigarette or chocolate when you're stressed, walk around the block or help someone. The latter immediately makes you feel super good about yourself because you're making a difference in the lives of others.
Quitting Tobacco on World No Tobacco Day
If you find it hard to quit smoking, today could be the day to just do it because it's World No Tobacco Day! It's a movement that aims to inform the public about the dangers of using tobacco and the business practices of tobacco companies. Organisations like Tobacco Free Portfolios is putting tobacco-free finance on the agenda. Tobacco exclusions are considered a fundamental step on the journey to integrate sustainability, responsibility and transparency for mainstream businesses.
