Growing up in the 90’s I thought smoking was cool. It was one of the peer pressures I’ve experienced. I did try it when I was in my 20’s and it led to smoking with friends during social hours. Luckily I was able to kick the habit by focusing on working out, distracting myself with fun activities like Kickball, Volleyball & Softball. Being surrounded with friends and meeting new people helped a lot. It was a great start to live a healthier lifestyle.
Here are some tips start:
- List your goals even if it’s a small one like eating more vegetables & fruits or waking up 10 minutes earlier.
- Take a 20 minute walk during your breaks, especially when you get hit with cravings. This could be a good time to have some Walgreens cessation gum.
- Start a journal by writing your daily gratitude, focus, highlight of the day, self maintenance, what you’ve learned from today’s experience.
- Breathing exercises help calm my mind if I’m having a stressful day. I do 5 minutes of breathing exercises. There’s some videos online you can use. Trust me it works.
- Talk to friends, find someone you trust. Having a support system is key to breaking a habit.
